KINGSTON, Jamaica:

Police are yet to bring charges against the St Andrew man who has allegedly swindled more than 10 women out of thousands of dollars in an employment scam, as investigations into the incident continue.

The alleged con man, who the police say they have to interview about a $10 million matter among other issues, operates under a number of fake names including; George Perez and Garcia Henriques Perez was reportedly held last week in a sting operation.

He was reportedly dressed as a doctor in green scrubs with a stethoscope around his neck.

Head of the Organised Crime Investigation Division (OCID), Senior Superintendent of Police Clifford Chambers says the alleged involvement of a woman is also the subject of an investigation.

"We confirmed that she flew out of Jamaica to Cayman but we cannot confirm if she is there because she could have left from there," he said.

The Half-Way Tree Police say the man will soon be charged but they are still conducting investigations and a number of persons are still coming forward with statements.

Meanwhile, the police are advising persons who were scammed by a man purporting to be a doctor or having aliases such as George Perez and Garcia Henriques Perez to contact OCID.
