Essequibians are appealing to their fellows to be vigilant and not to fall prey to the wiles of a woman who is purporting to be a spiritualist.
According to reports emanating from the region, several persons who encountered the con woman who reportedly said she was from Berbice. she uses her disguise to obtain monies, while pretending to be a spiritualist. Persons are fearful that the woman may continue to fleece other Essequibians.
One elderly woman, at whose home the con-woman was staying for the past four days, said that she first met the stranger on July 21. The elderly woman, who spoke on condition of anonymity, recalled being at her home at Bush Lot, Essequibo, on Thursday morning, when she was alerted by the calls of a woman.
Upon peeking out to see who it was, the elderly woman noted that the woman, who was carrying a bag with clothes, proclaimed that she was from Berbice and had come to the Coast to do business. “She came by me and I took her in, because she said she had no place to stay.’’
The elderly woman added that three days went by and the woman did not venture out of the home to do any business, except in the nights when she was accompanied by a man who was driving a dark-coloured vehicle.
The elderly woman said she began to question the woman for whom she was forced to provide three meals for each day.
Her investigation would later lead her to unearth from many persons in the village that the con woman, was also going to people’s homes relating different tales in order to obtain monies. “After I began to receive many phone calls from people in my village about this woman, I then realised this woman is a con woman”.
“She went by people and told them how she is a spiritualist and on other occasions she went around asking for aid to assist to undergo an operation, due to a medical complaint she had. ‘The elderly woman said that the woman went away on Monday night, but reports are that she still might be on the Essequibo Coast, operating in disguise.
Reports about her inappropriate behaviour have been lodged at the police station.
