Accused lottery scammer has bail extended

December 01, 2015


A St James man who was arrested in relation to the lottery scam after he was reportedly found with overseas contact information in October had his bail extended when he appeared in the Montego Bay Resident Magistrate's Court recently.

Davon Fray, 22, from Dumfries, is charged with breaches of the Law Reform (Fraudulent Transactions) (Special Provisions) Act, including unlawful possession of identity information.

It is alleged that on October 26, members of a police team saw Fray in a yard with an exercise book. When searched, the book was reportedly found to contain eight sheets of paper, each containing over 30 names with overseas contact information.

A phone with a recently-dialed overseas telephone number was also allegedly seized from Fray, who was subsequently arrested and charged.

The court was told that the Communication Forensic and Cybercrime Unit (CFCU) report was still outstanding from the prosecution's case-file.

Fray subsequently had his bail extended until January 20, 2016, when the case will again be mentioned.
