FRANKIE PAUL SCAM ... Late artiste's family members say they did not ask for donations
With at least one person allegedly calling around to solicit donations to bury musical great Frankie Paul, members of his family are making it clear that any such effort is a scam.
"They have not given permission and neither have they asked anyone to do any thing like that," Ian Roberts told The STAR Online.
Frankie Paul died shortly after 10 p.m. at the University Hospital of West Indies on May 18, 2017. He was 52 years old.
Roberts, who speaks on behalf of Frankie Paul's family, said that at least one individual has sought to "piggy back on this unfortunate event" by soliciting funds to help with burial.
"The family of the late Frankie Paul wishes to advise the public and fans of Frankie, that they have not asked anyone what-so-ever to send, contribute, donate, give, or commit any money to anyone on their behalf. Persons wishing to show their gratitude and support to honour Frankie’s memories and contribution to the music industry over the many years will be advised how, when and where to make their contributions," Roberts said in press release.
