Six people, including two women, believed to be a part of a lottery scam syndicate operating out of Westmoreland and St James, were last week arrested and charged under the Law Reform Act.


Police report that they have charged Christiana Curtis, 22, customer service agent of 34 Coral Gable, Independence City in Portmore, St Catherine; Landique Woodbourne, 25, of Cambridge, St James; Fabian Ramsey, 27; Viviene Duncan, 39; and Gideon Wright, 22, all of Lambs River in Westmoreland; and Danny Williams, 31 of Darliston district in the same parish.


The accused, said to be members of an organisation which has affiliates islandwide, were subsequently released on station bail and are scheduled to appear in the St James Parish Court on February 1.


Police said they were arrested during a series of operations carried out by the Counter Terrorism and Organised Crime Investigation Branch (C-TOC) between January 3 and 9 in Westmoreland, St Catherine, and St James, following allegations that they defrauded a 56-year-old, retired United States citizen of over $3 million.
