Attorney at law Jennifer Messado has been slapped with additional fraud charges.
Messado, who specialises in real estate transactions, was yesterday re-arrested and charged for Breaches of the Forgery Act by detectives from the Counter Terrorism and Organised Crime Investigations Branch.
The charges are Forgery, Uttering Forged Documents and Attempting to Obtain Money by Means of Forged Documents.
She was granted $100,000 bail and is to appear in the St Andrew Parish Court on June 1.
The allegations are that, on March 26, Messado visited a prominent financial institution in the Corporate Area where she tendered a signed letter to the manager of the institution with the signatures of two persons.
The letter reportedly had certain instructions allowing her to conduct business on behalf of the complainants.
Checks were made and it was discovered that neither complainant gave her permission to conduct business on their behalf.
On May 15, during her appearance in the St. Andrew Parish Court on similar charges, the court was told that CTOC detectives were opposed to Mrs Messado being granted bail as she was being investigated for other matters.
However, she was offered bail in the sum of $800,000.
She is to return to court for that matter on July 3.
Messado is charged jointly with Real Estate broker, Beverly Barakat.
