Fraud case is adjourned for medical certificates
A MAN who is alleged to have induced people into paying a total of €2,270 into his bank account for goods they allegedly did not receive had his case further adjourned for medical certificates to be furnished to the court.
James Ward (43) of Moylaragh Manor in Balbriggan is charged with inducing a man to make a lodgement of €360 to his AIB bank account in Balbriggan with the intention of making a gain for himself for the purchase of two Electric Picnic tickets on August 22rd which Ward allegedly advertised on Donedeal.ie.
He is also charged with inducing a woman to lodge €360 into his account for similar Electric Picnic tickets on August 23rd.
Ward is further charged with inducing a woman to lodge €400 into his bank account for the purchase of a Samsung Galaxy phone on June 4th and charged with inducing another woman to make a lodgement of €360 on May 16th for an unidentified item. He is also charged with inducing a person to make a payment into his account for €330 for an iPhone which was advertised on the website on May 27th and inducing a person to make a lodgement of €180 for Mumford & Sons tickets on June 17th.
He is further charged with inducing a person to make a lodgement of €280 into his account on June 25th, 2012.
Ward's solicitor informed Balbriggan District Court on a previous date that Ward was unable to attend as he has suffered a stroke.
Judge Dermot Dempsey agreed to a short adjournment and remanded Ward in his absence to re-appear before the court on April 24th when medical certificates are to be furnished.
