Man charged for obtaining cash by false pretence

A man who took a bank card of his former lover and allegedly depositing fraudulent cheques in her account was remanded when he appeared in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.

Charged with obtaining money by means of false pretence is Donovan Campbell.

The Crown is alleging that on December 12, about 9:30 a.m., the complainant visited a police station and reported that she had loaned her National Commercial Bank (NCB) bank card to Campbell, otherwise known as 'Danny', who allegedly lodged nine fraudulent cheques into her account.

Monies amounting $793, 825 between July 15 and 26 last year were withdrawn without her consent.

The complainant later received the fraudulent cheques and bank statements in her mail. She was then contacted by telephone by NCB and informed of all the activities. She was then advised to make a report to the police.

Campbell told Senior Resident Magistrate Judith Pusey that it was because he failed to do certain things while he and the complainant, who is Rastafarian, were dating, that he was being sued and hauled to court.
