SAN ESTEVAN, Orange Walk District, Thurs. May 12, 2016
A 71-year-old woman of San Estevan was swindled out of $11,000 by a con – man posing as a lands agent who claimed that he could get her two land titles for parcels, which she held leases in the village of Progresso.
After collecting a total of $11,000 from the senior citizen, the fake lands agent disappeared, and to date, the woman has not seen or heard from the con – man, nor has she received the titles for the parcels of land.
The woman told police that between November 2015 and January 2016, she made 8 payments to the fake land agent, totaling $11,000. The last payment was made to him on January 18.
Police are looking for the imposter.
