REAL NEWS: Two incidents of alleged fraud – both involving monies accepted to purchase vehicles – are being investigated by the Police.
One of the victims, a Buckleys man, reported to the Criminal Investigations Department that, on January 20, on High Street, he gave $9,000 in cash to a Mount Joy man for the purchase of a Toyota Runx.
However, up to the time of making the report, he had not received the car, nor had his money been refunded.
The victim reportedly has a signed receipt, as evidence that the funds were handed over to the man.
Meanwhile, a McKinnons woman also reported to the Criminal Investigations Department that a Villa resident had taken her money for the importation of a vehicle but has failed to deliver on the agreement.
It is alleged that she paid him the sum of $10,700, in two installments, for the importation and purchase of a car – a 2011 Toyota Vitz RX.
However, up to the date and time of making the report to the police, she had not received her car or her money back.
Reportedly, the payments were made on October 20, 2022, at the man’s house in Villa, and on February 17 at the victim’s house in McKinnons.
The Police reportedly have received documentation from the woman to substantiate her claim. Reports say that officers conducted a search for the man and he was found at a house in Cassada Gardens.
He was detained and taken to the Criminal Investigations Department for questioning.
