Accused scammer has bail extended

January 27, 2016


A St James man, arrested on lottery-scamming charges, last October after he was reportedly found with overseas contact information, had his bail extended when he appeared in the Montego Bay Resident Magistrate's Court.

Davon Fray, of 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, 2015, 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 more than 30 names with overseas contact information.

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

The court was told that the file relating to the Communication Forensic and Cybercrime Unit (CFCU) report had not yet been assigned and would take two months to complete.

Resident Magistrate Sandria Wong-Small extended Fray's bail, until April 6, when the case will again be mentioned.
