Guyanese in US charged in bogus debt-elimination scheme

Source: Edmund H. Mahony The Hartford Courant, Conn. (MCT) — Federal tax agents on Tuesday accused a father and daughter from Wethersfield of using a far-fetched and phony debt-elimination scam to steal thousands of dollars from new U.S. immigrants living in Connecticut and elsewhere.

Because of the scam, through which  and his daughter Sunita collected thousands of dollars in fees from so-called clients, several of the clients were persuaded that they no longer had to make mortgage payments and ultimately lost their homes through foreclosure.

A government affidavit filed in court said that Deowraj Buddhu is a citizen of Guyana and is the subject of a federal deportation order. The same affidavit said Sunita Buddhu had reservations on a flight Tuesday from New York to Guyana. Federal authorities would not discuss her whereabouts.  [more]

    Alot of East Indians in Guyana are guilty of doing much more atrocious things. They think that they can go to the US and get away with these crimes like they do in guyana. many of them get away with murder Because theyve gotten rich off of the struggling working class and lower class. they are bleeding the country dry. I’m happy that justice is being served in the US. Because if it were Guyana, many of them would’ve paid their way out of prison.
