A doctor and owner of a popular weight loss clinic in T&T was detained by police yesterday.
Reports indicate that the 40 year old doctor was at her St James clinic when she was visited by the officers.
Reports also state that officers received information from a patient who claimed that over $25,000 in cash and cheques was paid to
the doctor for a liposuction procedure.
However, the patient alleged the procedure was never done and the patient never got a refund.
Four other similar cases were also reportedly filed against the clinic.
In a statement last evening, manager of Corporate Communications of the T&T Police Service, Ellen Lewis, confirmed the doctor was
detained yesterday morning by officers of the Fraud Squad in connection with the fraud allegations that were reported to them.
Specifically, Lewis said the allegations surround allegedly tendering fraudulent cheques and receiving monies for services not
Lewis said the head of the Fraud Squad is also asking members of the public who may have any information or allegations against the
owner to come forward and assist them or contact the Fraud Squad office immediately.
