FCU cops seeking internet phone scam victims

| 04/02/2009

(CNS): Officers for the Financial Crimes Unit (FCU) say they are looking for people who may have been duped into buying cell phones online by a company called Compucay. Detectives in the unit are investigating allegations of deception in relation to the firm which during 2008 advertised 3G iphones for sale online, and a number of Cayman residents responded by sending money to the company for the phones. The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service said that to date no phones have been received and it is now conducting an enquiry.

 

“So far, I have identified two people who have made payments through this company a long time ago, neither of which ever received their goods or a refund,” said Detective Constable Richard Clarke of the FCU. “I now need to hear from anyone else who has sent money and not received goods.”

 Anyone who can assist Detective Clarke should contact him on 949-8797.

Anyone with information about crime taking place in the Cayman Islands should contact their local police station or Crime Stoppers on 800-8477 (TIPS). All persons calling Crime Stoppers remain anonymous, and are eligible for a reward of up to $1000, should their information lead to an arrest or recovery of property/drugs.
