Inmate who conned businessman out of $2.1M charged

A convicted fraudster who is presently incarcerated was on Friday charged for conning a businessman out of over $2.1 million.
Mohammed Ali, who was jailed in 2017, reportedly conned Julius Belgrave of the cash by impersonating Public Health Minister, Volda Lawrence.
He appeared before Magistrate Leron Daly at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts and denied the act which was committed between October 5 and October 10, 2018.
The Virtual Complainant (VC) reported the matter to the police after he journeyed to the Public Health Ministry to uplift payments based on instructions given by the defendant and realised that he had been scammed.
Ali was remanded to prison and the matter was adjourned to February 21, 2019.
The accused was previously charged for impersonating the First Lady, Sandra Granger, and was offering scholarships.
