Ailing conman ordered to repay money
An ailing man, who conned a woman out of more than $134,000, claiming he would have provide her with overseas employment, was given until December 1 to repay the money when he appeared in the Corporate Area RM Court on Friday.
Charged with fraudulent conversion is Denzil Taylor, 59, a businessman from St Catherine.
Allegations are that, between February and October 2013, the accused collected a total of CDN$1,500 Canadian collars from the complainant to provide her with overseas employment by August.
However, the accused did not deliver on his promises and was unable to provide a refund to the complainant. The matter was reported to the police and Taylor charged.
In court, Senior RM Judith Pusey asked, "When will she get her money?"
To which a visibly feeble Taylor responded, "I'm going to need some time because I'm sick. I'm going to need about three months."
Pusey ordered him to repay the money on December 1, noting, "I have no sympathy for people who hide behind sickness after they fleece money from others."
