Floyd Primo called “Wild Buck”, 31, of Lot 80 D’Urban Street, Georgetown, appeared at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts Friday slapped with fraud charges.
It is alleged that between May 6 and 27, 2015 at Georgetown with intent to defraud ‘Wild Buck’ took $13,750,000 from Karen Persaud pretending to be the owner of a piece of land located at Lot 40 Public Road, Kitty, Georgetown.
‘Wild Buck’s Attorney George Thomas in a bail application told the court his client was not the one whom the VC had the agreement with, rather one Marjorie Edinboro, who was also fingered in the fraud probe.
He requested that Magistrate McLennan take into consideration that Primo never collected a cheque from Persaud.
Police Prosecutor Neville Jeffers however strongly opposed bail, pointing out that the defendant has pending matters in court and more importantly a wanted bulletin was issued for him in 2015 and he had failed to turn himself over law enforcement officers.
Jeffers stated also that Primo along with others took $13, 750,000 cash from Persaud under false pretence and that he is the owner of the land at the aforementioned plot in Kitty. Primo claimed he was the owner of the land which he provided documents for, but upon the plaintiff’s arrival at the Deeds Registry, Primo was in the possession of a fake Identification Card. He then left for another ID card but never returned.
Chief Magistrate McLennan overruled the bail application and remanded the man to prison.
The case will continue on June 13.
