Seatons man allegedly swindled 18k from woman

8

Twenty-nine-year-old Jevaughn Josiah of Seatons-charged with larceny and fraudulent conversion- was granted bail in the sum of $20,000 with a $5000 cash component, in court today.

It is alleged that in 2019, a woman seeking to purchase a vehicle for her small business contacted him and indicated that she wished to buy Honda CRV online.

The accused reportedly told the complainant to wire almost $18,000 money to an account in Japan and she did.

He is said to have told her that she would get the car in February of 2020 but she didn’t.

She was also no longer able to get in contact with the accused.

The matter was reported to the Criminal Investigations Department and the man was subsequently questioned and then arrested and charged with larceny and fraudulent conversion.

Today, his lawyer Wendel Robinson made a bail application.

The Magistrate granted him bail on the condition that he not only pay the monies requested but also surrender his travel documents, report to the nearest police station three times a week and provide two local sureties.

The committal hearing was set for February 24, 2021.

  1. IF this dude is guilty prosecute him to the full extent of the law, and give lots of time in Her Majesty’s Guest House. There are many more scammers out there who need to be hauled in.

  2. So a larceny and fraudulent conversion charge in the Antigua and Barbuda criminal code gets a higher bail amount than a charge of RAPE? You change the wording and call it sexual assault. Stealing almost $18,000 gets you a $20,000 dollar bond? Don’t make sense to me. Maybe someone can explain why. I have an idea but I want to see if I’m on the right track.

  3. Wendel Robinson is un high demand these days. Leaving his position at RPFAB seems to be serving him well.

  4. Y’all police need to stop this friend and company shit… Did she give him her money .. NO She wired the money herself . The vehicle is at the port. She says she doesn’t want it because it took to long to arrive here . You all always carry jokey charges to court to waste time.

    • I am hoping that the police can find the man who owes me court stipulated monies for unpaid rent during the pandemic. Some people need to be exposed. And they seem to prey on women.

  5. Soooo let me get this straight??? She ask the man how she can get a car.

    The man SUGGESTED an overseas company.

    He IS NOT A BROKER AND ONLY GAVE HIS OPINION.

    She took it upon HERSELF at HIS WORD, although he’s not a professional.

    Sent the money HERSELF .. she DIDNT give it to him and now she has problems, she’s blaming him??? He DIDNT take her money.
