Prominent Real Estate Attorney Charged Again
Sixty-seven-year-old Jennifer Messado, of a Kingston 8 address in St. Andrew, was charged by detectives attached to the Counter-Terrorism and Organized Crime Investigations Branch (CTOC) on Friday, May 25 for breaches of the Forgery Act.
She was charged with Forgery, Uttering Forged Documents and Attempting to Obtain Money by Means of Forged Documents.
Allegations are that on March 26, 2018, Messado visited a prominent financial institution in the corporate area where she tendered a signed letter to the manager of the institution with the signatures of two persons. The letter had certain instructions allowing her to conduct business on behalf of the complainants. Checks were made and it was discovered that neither complainants gave the accused permission to conduct business on their behalf.
A report was subsequently filed with CTOC where an investigation was launched, which led to the arrest and charge of Messado. She was granted bail in the sum of $100,000.00 and is set to appear in the Corporate Area Parish Court on June 1.
