A businesswoman, accused of defrauding two men of $6.4 million in two separate land transactions, claimed the properties that she was selling in Portland were 'allocated' to her and she was waiting on the Government to finalise the transfer of the lands to her.

The accused, Cheryl Moore, a businesswoman of Kingston, was arrested and charged with two counts of fraudulent conversion following allegations that she collected $4 million from one of the complainant in September of last year and $2.4 million from the other as a deposit for another piece of land in March of last year, but has failed to honour the transactions.

When Moore appeared in the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court last Thursday, her lawyer Clive Mullings told Acting Parish Judge Chester Crooks that his client had a piece of land in Portland that the Government bought but has failed to pay over the money to her.

The lawyer also told the court that the properties in question were assigned to Moore under the Portland Trust and that the monies paid over by the complainants were monies advanced with the full appreciation that when the property transfer was finalised the lands would be sold to them.
