The men are Junior Williams, Vivene Simpson, 20, Damion Simpson, 19, and Andre Fletcher, 20, all of Glengoffe district, St Catherine, and Ironshore, St James.

The matter was mentioned in the Spanish Town Resident Magistrate's Court and transferred to the High Court.

The court was told by Justice Lennox Campbell that a bail application for the accused persons will be accommodated on June 26.

"These persons are stopping persons from investing in the country as they believe there are only crooks here. So when you are applying for bail, it will have to borne out that they will be doing something meaningful with their lives, " Justice Campbell said.

There was a moment of laughter when the female accused said that she has six CXC subjects and wants to study law.

It was revealed that police personnel from the Lotto Scam Task Force swooped down on premises in Glengoffe, St Catherine.

The house which was occupied by the four was searched and two laptops, three cellular phones and eight lists with phone, numbers and addresses of persons living overseas were alleged to have been detected.

They were arrested on suspicion and, following further investigations, they were charged.
