Freeport Woman Swindles Homeowners In Real Estate Fraud
After turning herself in to police in the capital on Friday, businesswoman Daisymae Johnson, who was wanted for questioning into what police believe was an elaborate fraudulent scheme which targeted dozens of intended homeowners, is expected to be hauled before the court in Freeport for a second time, today.
The 57-year-old, who operated a real estate and land development company in the name of Gibraltar, posed as a real estate agent and collected thousands of dollars as down payment for houses and property from customers between 2009 and 2010.
The homes were to be built in the Heritage, Chesapeake and Eastern areas of Freeport within three months time, but reportedly never materialized.
But police say, Johnson was not authorized to sell the properties she had shown to the customers during the negotiations and now she faces fraud by false pretense charges.crime, freeport, grand bahama, real estate
