REAL NEWS: Jahmesha Millwood, the nurse accused of fraud in connection with COVID-19 vaccination cards, has found herself in trouble with the law again – this time on allegations of forgery.
It is alleged that, on January 20, Millwood cashed two forged and stolen cheques at a service station on Old Parham Road.
After the alleged fraud came to light, reports say, the credit controller at M&M Service Station went to the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) on February 9 and reported that the woman had cashed two ACB cheques at the business and received over $2,000.
Reportedly, Millwood had gone to the establishment and presented two ACB cheques in the amount of $1,000 and $1,200, respectively, and received the cash.
When the cheques were later deposited to the business’ account at ECAB, it was discovered that they were forged – after having been stolen from a Crosbies residence.
Millwood is likely to face charges for this reported offence.
The disgraced nurse, said to be a Jamaica national, is already facing 21 counts of falsifying COVID-19 vaccination cards. It is alleged that she forged and issued up to 50 of the fake cards for which she received a hefty sum.
She was taken into police custody in November 2021 after officers got word of the scam, and the 30-year-old Bolans resident is currently on a $5,000 bail for that offence.
As a result, her licence to practice nursing in Antigua and Barbuda was revoked, reports say.
Meanwhile, the M&M Service Station was the target of another similar fraud, which,, again was reported to the Police by the credit controller/debt collector.
In this instance, a man is alleged to have cashed two ACB cheques belonging to City Blinds in the amount of $280 and $588, respectively, and these were later returned because of an irregular signature.
This incident reportedly occurred on November 24 at the Old Parham Road location.
