Inmate and Accomplice Charged in Another Overseas Employment Scam

Garcia Perez, an inmate at one of the island’s correctional facilities who also goes by the names Jeffery Bondah and Harris Haughton, along with Susan Green–McLaughlin of a Manchester address were yesterday charged by detectives form MOCA for Conspiracy to Defraud and Obtaining money by False Pretense.

In March 2017, investigators from MOCA began probing allegations that persons from Corporate Marketing Solutions Limited where swindling money from people under the pretense of providing jobs overseas. Subsequently investigations revealed that the person said to be the Chief Executive Officer of the company is currently serving time for a fraud conviction. The investigation revealed the entire enterprise was a scam and this led to the arrest and charge of Green-McLaughlin and Perez.

Susan Green – McLaughlin was offered bail in the sum of Fifty Thousand Dollars ($50,000). Both will appear in the Kingston and St. Andrew Parish Court on Thursday August 10, 2017.

Members of the public who may have been victims of this scam are urged to visit the office of the Major Organised Crime and Anti-Corruption Agency to make a report. Investigation into the matter continues.
