    How reputable was this individual that persons believed her every word?  Old people always have a saying: A promise is a COMFORT to a FOOL.  How gullible/desperate can persons become? We need to start exercising WISDOM. 

    Never let go the SURE for the UNSURE. Always get it in black & white (proof) before you sell yourself short.

    She had only reach 250,000 thats what the news means and she deceived these people who may have been in need to have fallen for this act. You seem to promote this type of deceit or otherswords Theft.

    Please note the fuss is about promosing waht you can’t fullfill and stealing the money knowing you can’t make it happen. Thats like promising Residence-wow that would have been maybe alot more maybe 50,000 (doens’t matter) its stealing…….

    I’m glad we caught her…and hope that we keep up the our Eagle Eye!

    "I don’t see what the fuss is about."  Can’t believe someone would say that ! Guess if some one walked into your house and helped themselves to a few dollars or some of your belongs, that would be ok ? I mean if they were’nt that expensive of course !

    Money is money ! And if its 1 dollar or 1 million dollars if its not yours its not yours !

    In reply to Anonymous @ 10:16, it doesn’t matter the amount the point is she deceived people into believing that she could get jobs for them. She should have to pay back the money and also serve a jail sentence.

    Remember it starts off with petty stuff then escalates, should we turn a blind eye to the small stuff? Wrong is wrong! Sin is Sin!

    The fuss is about obtaining property by deception – theft. It does not matter whether is is $250,000 or $25,000,000. To the poor people who were deprived of it is significant. Incidentally this is almost US$3,000.  

    Speaks volumes about your moral standards.

    You don’t see what the fuss is about, she promised those individuals a job in Cayman and she knew very well that she did not had any job for these people.  So she very lucky those people never take her life in these hard times.

    She stole from them, bottom line and the money was not yours…

    250,000 Jamaican dollars is only about a dime in real terms isn’t it? I don’t see what the fuss is about.
