Detectives from the Fraud Squad have arrested and charged one man in connection with what they believe is an illegal investment scheme.

Forty-eight-year-old John Cameron of Mandeville, Manchester, is to appear in court today to answer to the charges of fraudulently inducing to invest money, engaging in the business of trading without a license and operating as a securities dealer without a license.

Investigators say Cameron fraudulently solicited money from unsuspecting persons for investment.

They say a report was made after he failed to pay out returns on investors’ deposit.

The Police are appealing to other persons who have invested in the Ponzi scheme to make a report at the nearest Police Station or visit the Fraud Squad at 34 Duke Street, Kingston.
