Mayor of May Pen, Councillor Scean Barnswell's personal email account has been hacked.




Mayor Barnswell's says it came to his attention earlier this week that some of his contacts received emails asking to borrow large sums of money amounting to €13,000.



The email claimed that he was stranded in Sweden and had no money to get home.

He is urging persons to disregard the mail as there is not the case.



He says he has since disabled the account.
