Jamaica News, March 8, 2018 – Manchester Employment Scam
Manchester, Jamaica (McKoy’s News) – Our news team has learnt from the Mandeville police in Manchester that despite more complainants making reports, the prime suspect who was recently taken into custody, in connection with an alleged overseas employment scam, is still being interviewed and have not yet been charged.
The female was taken into custody over a week ago, after over 100 job seekers who paid over cash to the overseas employment agency which operates out of Christiana, discovered that no overseas jobs were forthcoming.
It is reported that on Friday, March 3, the job seekers acted upon instructions given to them by the individuals in charge of the Employment Agency. As a result, they went to a specific location where they were supposed to meet up with the organizers, in preparation to leave the island for job positions in the USA and Canada.
The organizers never turned up, so it arose suspicions and the matter was reported to the police who carried out an investigation. The officers took a female into custody who allegedly works for the organizers.
The matter is now being investigated by The Jamaica Constabulary Force Counter-Terrorism and Organized Crime Investigation Branch (C-TOC)
