    "He is from Flanker, another one is a bus driver from S Catherine. What happened is both frightening and worrying."

  • UWI student allegedly used ‘scamming’ to pay school tuition


    A University of the West Indies (UWI) student who was arrested on multiple fraud and scamming related charges, after he allegedly defrauded a United States citizen of US$3450 and used it to pay his tuition accused was today hauled before the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court.

    Cheves Allen, who is a second year Actuarial Science student, is charged with transporting money using access device, obtaining credit by fraud, six counts of unauthorised access to computer data, six counts of conspiracy to transport money using access device, five counts of possession of identity information and transporting money using access device.

    He pleaded not guilty to all charges.

    Allegations are that between January 2, 2015 and August 10, 2015, the accused the credit card of a United States citizen, without authorisation, to pay his school fee. An accountant at UWI detected the fraud when the actual credit card holder reversed the transaction.


    The police later carried out a search at Allen’s home and discovered telephone numbers, names, banking information and addresses of US citizens. It is also alleged that Allen runs a business at UWI, where he employs and tutors other students on scamming.

    After the allegations were read, the Judge, Judith Pusey said, “You are what they call an educated scammer.”

    However, Allen’s lawyer painted a different picture of the situation. He claimed Allen did not defraud anyone by using his or her credit card. He said Allen has been working online for an overseas company doing data entry, and he advised his employer to deposit his pay directly to the university.

    As for the US citizen’s information which were found at Allen’s home, his lawyer claims they are not of US Citizens, but that of the people Allen employs to do data entry for the company as well.

    He was denied bail and is to reappear in court on Monday. A fingerprint order was made.

    Mr Nicholls, an IT technician, said he stopped at KFC Labrador during his day off.

    He ordered a 3 piece box, with two wings and a chicken breast for $12.50. Instead of a quick, greasy meal, though, he said he got the 'surprise of my life.'

    'I pulled a piece off [of the breast], then found that and spat the rest out,' he said.

    After alerting staff, he was told the flesh could be a lung and that he should contact KFC customer service. He was not initially offered a refund.

    A KFC spokesman said that the flesh was most likely a chicken lung or kidney that was mistakenly not removed during preparation of the food.

    This month there have been a number of nasty incidents involving KFC right across the globe.

    In England, a Wellingborough woman was left horrified when she found her KFC chicken meal was full of raw giblets and uncooked entrails. 

    She says when she held the piece of chicken from her Zinger in her hand she noticed flecks of purple and pulled it apart to find uncooked giblets and entrails had been left inside the meat.
