Police still taking Carmax complaints

Published:Tuesday | April 21, 2015 | 4:48 PM

The police are appealing to members of the public who may have been defrauded by the Directors and CEO of Carmax Jamaica Limited to contact the Counter Terrorism and Organized Crime Branch (C-TOC).

Up to the end of last week, 61 people had come forward with allegations that Carmax failed to pay over more than $101 million it collected from the sale of motor vehicles on their behalf.

In a release earlier today, the Corporate Communications Unit of the Jamaica Constabulary Force said there are no plans to stop taking complaints from members of the public.

On March 13, Carmax Director Daren Blake, was arrested and charged for the offence of Fraudulent Conversion, following reports from several persons who claim he sold their motor vehicles without handing over the proceeds.

Blake appeared in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court on Friday, March 27.

The matter has been postponed until Friday, May 1.
