Farm work scammer gets three-year sentence
A man currently serving time for operating an overseas employment scam was brought before the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court yesterday for the same crime.
Everton Boothe, 54, pleaded guilty to three counts of obtaining money by means of false pretense and guilty to three counts of forgery.
The court heard that Boothe collected a sum of Ja $84 000 from three complainants, falsely telling them he could provide them with visas and employment through on the farm work programme in Canada.
He was sentenced to three years imprisonment, to run concurrently and consecutively with his current sentence.
