POLICE?are looking for a “building contractor” who has allegedly defrauded several Barbadians of hundreds of thousands of dollars, and left a trail of bounced cheques at hardware stores.
Among the victims are two elderly women, who each gave him over $100 000 – one to renovate her house, the other to build. Neither of the women has seen him since 2010.
Eighty-two-year-old Muriel Grant, of Free Hill, Black Rock, St Michael, who lived in the United States, sent him cheques totalling $119 733 of $125 000, which he had charged to renovate her house. However, when she returned last year, she found the house still unfinished and “in a worst state” than before.
Usline Bentham, 77, is having sleepless nights. She admitted to the SUNDAY?SUN she handed over $130 000 to construct a three-bedroom wall house at Berlin Road, St Philip, in 2009. Her brother, who lives in Canada, had also given him a $30 000 down payment for another.
Full story in today’s SUNDAY SUN.
