Travel agent cleared of 14 fraud charges

Cayman 123 Travel owner, Theresa Chin

(CNS): Theresa Chin, the former owner of 123 Travel, has been acquitted of more than a dozen deception offences in relation to her failed business. It took a jury just over a couple of hours to find Chin not guilty on 14 counts of obtaining and attempting to obtain property by deception in connection with flights and holidays she sold to customers but never acquired the tickets. Chin had not denied misusing cash given to her by clients for their travel arrangement, as she moved money around in an effort to keep her business afloat.

The question in this case had always been about whether Chin was dishonest when she took the cash and used another customer’s credit card details that she had retained without permission to pay for tickets or whether her efforts to “rob Peter to pay Paul” were simply an honest struggle to keep the business going and get on top of her debts.

While Chin has not repaid all of the customers who lost out when her business eventually collapsed, the jury’s across the board not guilty verdicts implied they did not believe what she had done was deliberately dishonest.

Speaking to the jury on her behalf last week as the case drew to a close, defence attorney Nick Dixie argued that his client may have been a terrible business woman but it did not make her a con artist or thief, as he pointed out that stupidity was not dishonesty.

He argued her intent had always been to secure the travel arrangements for her customers but a spiraling out of control situation eventually became too much to save, leaving around eleven customers out-of-pocket as they had to pay twice for their tickets. Chin claimed that she had got into financial trouble not least because other people and businesses owed her money, causing a knock on effect.

    As long as you believe that nothing can be done, nothing will be done. The jury makes a stupid or erroneous decision and this is obvious to judges/lawyers. The judge can reverse the verdict.

      The rather belated story in the Compass does include the Judge’s instructions to the jury. Interestingly, it ends with this para:

      “Someone who appropriates property belonging to another person without meaning for the other person to lose that property permanently is nevertheless to be regarded as having the intention of permanently depriving the other person of it if his intention is to treat the thing as his own to dispose of regardless of the other person’s rights, the judge instructed.”

      hmnn…

      Was she not “disposing [of her client’s money and using her client’s card] regardless of [their] rights”? Seems that way to me — the case in a nutshell.

    Stress and more stress. no justice in Cayman Islands Court. What else in NEW. What gets me is that 99.95 of all posters on these online news sites in The Cayman Islands don’t use their names they use that BIG A. What a joke, who are you afraid off. Besides travel agency’s are a dying breed. Why pay someone to book your vacation a service fee when you can all go online yourselves. BOOK FOR FREE.

    wow! shocking at any level. What is so worrying for those of you that think this isn’t a problem, the only lesson she learned is that you can steal from others to save your own dying business. She will go on to set up another business but hopefully with the new changes to the T&B law they will not issue her a licence (please someone take note!!) Gosh just awful.

    Guys,

    We have to be mindful that sometimes the news does not report everything. I’ve seen several cases where critical details are left out of news reports that ultimately lead to an acquittal. Granted, I know of several cases that we simply botched by a poor case being brought by the prosecution or jury being overly lenient, inter alia. Some cases I know resulted in bad judgments against people who demonstrated not only guilt but lack of remorse. This was not one of those cases.

    In this case, I can tell you that all the important details were not shared sufficiently by the media – in particular the final parts of the case leading up to the jury decision. What was shared in mass was the incriminating circumstances which led a lot of us, even me at one point, to write her off. But the proof is in the pudding, and only the edge of the pudding was shared with most.

      I agree with you wholeheartedly. Unfortunately that is incorrect in this case. Nice of you to take up for her but as someone who has been in the industry since 1986, she knew exactly what she was doing. It is not a new thing. If you own an agency, you know what is allowed and what is not allowed. Agents are bonded and should be trusted. She should have never been allowed to obtain her IATA license in the first instance.
      Just ask a PROFESSIONAL Travel Agent. There are 2 shops on the island that have been in business for decades. That is who you should trust.

          So using another person credit card without permission is poor management????? Well if it is, please give me your credit card details and let me use at my will, and when u called the police I would just tell them it is poor management…. all you are joke. I own and run a small for the past 30 years and I have my share of hard times, that’s why when u in business and when you are doing well, you must put profit a side for hard times to weather through.

          I have gone 3 months without collecting a single payment sometimes, but that the nature of doing business. You need to have a strong credit line to sustain your business.

          In this case they use the money for they own personal gain. She tried to open a beAuty salon and fail, she paid for parties for her family and friends in Jamaica and in cayman. I know this first hand cause I was there partying with them……

      Hi Ron the Observer, can you share with us the details that would make us more sympathetic to this case?

      I do wonder if we got a balanced view — for example, I thought what might have helped would have been the judge’s summing up of the case and the instructions to the jury. I suspect that that is the key to understanding what happened here.

      But so far I have not heard anyone mention anything in mitigation — what about it Ron? What do you know that would help us with this vexing case?

        100% of my early trips to Cuba could not be purchased online – every one of them involved theft in some degree from either the Cayman travel agency, the Cuban hotel or bus drivers, or the political officer “Igor” assigned to incoming Cayman passengers at the time. None of it was refunded. Shakedown after shakedown. Done with that place, and Cayman agencies that orchestrated these shakedowns.

    I personally lost almost almost $5000. USD to this SCAM TRAVEL AGENCY and IRRESPONSIBLE BUSINESS OWNER. The juries decision is a JOKE PERIOD and IRRESPONSIBLE. That is like me saying “I DID NOT INTEND TO COMMIT A CRIME, SO I SHOULD GET OFF OF ALL CHARGES.” This sets a PRECEDENT for everyone using their CRIMINAL ACTIONS and walking away FREE. Just imagine I paid this money and have not gotten either my TICKETS or MONEY. If that is not THEFT, I have to restudy the English language. Even after this lady was charged she closed the Agency temporarily then reopened with all new SIGNAGE. I wonder who paid for that. My question has been answered all us VICTIMS have been charged and she walks away laughing.

    This is obviously a ridiculous decision, however we must appreciate that the jury must make a decision based on the evidence presented in court. Has anyone considered that maybe the prosecution bottled their case? Are there performance reviews? Based on what is shared in the news, this case would seem to be a slam dunk.

    I am not a lawyer, but the performance of the prosecution must be considered.

      So just last week (20 April) we learned via another media of another case that did not fare so well:

      “… had pleaded not guilty to five charges of theft from ….by writing checks to herself totalling $12,500.

      The magistrate found her guilty of all charges. This week, defense attorney Jonathon Hughes spoke in mitigation, telling the court Martinez had medical bills of about $18,000, because of her own health issues and those of her son, who has sickle cell disease.

      At the time of the offenses, her financial problems were leading to foreclosure on her home and causing a great deal of distress, he said.”

      The defense attorney went on to say that she was extremely remorseful, was willing to pay back, and had her desperately sick son who was entirely dependent on her, not to mention her own illness.

      The judge reduced her jail time of one year by six months, and substituted six months community service.

      The only difference in this case was that this woman’s troubles are much more sympathetic — the amount of funds involved are likely to be similar, and the act of taking cash to use for your own personal needs is exactly the same as writing a check to yourself — same difference.

      This woman can thank her lucky stars — it can be nothing less than dishonesty to scheme to take people’s money, even if you plan to pay it back.

      And in the case of the use of the credit card, I simply don’t believe that was a mistake — the details you have to provide for a credit card that you don’t have on hand to swipe must have made it clear who the card belonged to.

      And how was she going to pay that back? Must have been hoping that the owner of the card would not have checked his account.

      It is terribly unfair that a sick woman with a sick dependent child must go to jail while an able-bodied woman trying to save a failing business should walk.

      And what is this about “honesty” excusing a violation of faith and trust in the expropriation of people’s money for your own use? A lot of people who are in court for the first time ever, are basically honest people, who get in a jam and cannot resist temptation in the face of grave personal crises.

      But you have to face the consequences of the crime.

      And what of the the pain, distress of and utter inconvenience to the victims, some of whom had never been paid back???

      And what about the position of trust in an OWNER of a business? This was not a line employee.

      This case shouts something “rotten in the state of Denmark.”

        yes, 8:47 am, I feel for the other heart-rending case. It was very painful to read about the pain of that mother, and it was so sad that she had to go to jail, especially as her son is so ill and is so dependent on her.

        I don’t wish anyone ill, but I can see nothing to make me feel sorry for Chin. She was all about herself and saving her failing business.

    WTF! Although I must say having been a part of the jury selection in the past it is actually not that surprising. It might not be the jury but more so the quality of the prosecution’s case. I once saw the defense attorney reach across the isle to assist the prosecution with the list of names of the PROSECUTION’s own witnesses!!!!! I was appalled and unfortunately that was the standard I was exposed to throughout that entire process. Which leads me to another mystery what exactly is the Attorney General’s job and where the hell is he? The amount of questionable sentencing and shocking acquittals raises a major red flag of significant deficiencies in our legal system.

    There are simple solutions to solve this problem: 1) Purchase your ticket online either directly through the airline, or one of the large travel sights such as Travelocity or Trip Advisor. 2) Ask a trusted friend to do this (or show you how) online if you are unfamiliar. 3) Go to the Airport to purchase your ticket.

      From a public policy point of view, this decision should be appealed. I would hate for this to set a precedent that in those instances where I call in my credit card on island (for food delivery for example) that the business keeps my details and potentially use it to save their failing business. There is a commercial risk here!

        It probably already has set a precedent. … the 2 before her didnt intend to steal either so she thought she would give the excuse a try. She knew exactly what she was doing. When you sell a person a ticket and then void it out, keeping the money. That is intended fraud and misrepresentation. you intentionally had to void/cancel it and use the money for the next person. When it came time to buy the ticket that you should have bought in the first place, you don’t have the funds or the space is sold out. she was definitely dishonest. Honest agencies are guided by rules and regulations. She struck out there 3 times and cant get a license anymore. And dont forget, she didnt even have a Cayman business license to be doing business.

      So it wasn’t dishonest to tell people that they had to pay cash so that she could get it to back up her business? Further, that is premeditation. She planned the misappropriation of people’s money for her own use. Usually in criminal cases that is what proves guilt.

      This was the sort of finagling of people’s money that landed the late Desmond Seales in jail. He was a company manager and applied some of the proceeds from his property management business — not his money either — to try to save his television business.

      Fortune was not so kind to him.

      What was it about this case that was so different? The fact that she was inevitably discovered earlier given the nature of the transaction? What if she had been able to hide some of this misappropriation of funds — what would that have led to?

      It was not as if everyone got their money back, either — according to this and previous reports, all customers were not paid back.

      IN any case, restitution does not absolve someone of guilt.

      What about the violation of trust — when you hand over your money in exchange for services or products you are trusting that the contract will be fulfilled. How could we possibly allow that violation to go without some sort of sanction — not even community service?

      Seems sort of weird to me.

            I’ve never stated nor thought that Caymanians are incapable of anything.. The fact remains that when there is a pool of roughly 23,000 people over 18 (21,226 registered to vote) with 10% ineligible due to prior convictions, you are left with 20,700 people who could serve on a jury.. The system will work it so that everyone will be selected for the panel at some stage so few get called more than twice and on an island that is 75.68 square miles it goes without saying that the degrees of separation from any accused will be tiny so it is very common to have people on the jury who know the accused (even indirectly) thus very hard to not be biased one way or another (or genuinely afraid)?

              Anyone who has gone through general registry eg: births and a myriad of other things can be called for jury duty. So all the people who don’t register to vote can be called for jury duty, if the court system followed the law.

    Using someone else’s credit card number to pay your bills is not dishonest? Oh, I forgot. The Bush precedent. Only in Cayman.

    The jury clearly don’t understand what dishonesty is. When I am shuffling my own pay cheque around and trying to decide whom to pay, that is not dishonest. When I as customer pay you to purchase a flight from here to Jamaica and you as the travel agent take my money and pay another bill AND do not purchase my ticket, that is dishonest. I have paid you for a good or service that I did not receive.

    I think the jury was sympathetic because her business was failing and she was desperately trying to keep her business afloat but you don’t do that with other people’s money and deny them what they paid for.

    I think Theresa is a good person but what she did was dishonest. She might have had every intention or hopefully, honouring all her customers travel plans but in principle is what she did any different than a Ponzi scheme? People take money from new investors to pay interest to old investors, it all hinges on new investors coming on board.

    How did she allow her business to get to the point of solely relying on the next customer through the door to keep the lights on?

    Sadly she is not the only one. All these so-called entrepreneurs that have sprung up since the hurricane, they take your money and use it another job while your job is waiting to be funded by the next customer.

    Cayman needs a Business Bureau. What is the criteria for obtaining a trade and business license? Apparently anyone can get one and there is no one to hold them accountable.

      You are right, 5:49 pm, it sounds just like a Ponzi scheme. People have been almost crucified for Ponzi schemes.

      And I just don’t see how it could have been a “mistake” to use one person’s card rather than another — in this case she did not actually have the card to swipe it, the data, including the name and address of the person would have had to be entered — and possibly also the secret number at the back. How could that be a “mistake”?

    Moral – stupidity isn’t a criminal offence? The harsh reality here is that these islands have a complete lack of regulation when it comes to travel agents. The money should have been held in escrow until the promised travel arrangements were completed not used to prop up a bankrupt business.

      hold on, 5:30 pm, I do not condone what this woman has done, but please do not go at this wholesale generalization of “you people”, allowing “your brethren to rape and pillage”. Come on — can you be so simpleminded and so incapable of harnessing argument to support your point?

      Go back to your perfect country you racist piece of excrement. Because surely your people are not stupid and immoral like us corrupt inbred Caymanians right?
      No village in England or small town in Canada or the US could ever have the same issue of a limited jury pool could it?
      There have never been issues of jury nullification in places like LA (OJ) or the Southern US (pre civil rights KKK) or New York (Eric Garner) have there?
      Because in other places, run by educated people of European descent these things don’t happen right? Because us monkeys in the banana republics just can’t do anything up to your level, of course we can’t! Being inferior and all that.
      So why did you came here? If things are so much better run in your hometown?
      I will tell you why. Because you wanted to Lord it over someone and get all the benefits you’d never get back home – that’s why. Because you’re inferior, racist trash who couldn’t make the cut in your home country.
      Thought you’d be a big fish in our small pond and rake in the tax free bucks in our little gold mine of a banana Republic eh? All while sneering at those of us who are from this place and whose ancestors built it for the likes of you to come and rape and pillage our heritage.
      They say the freaks come out at night but the bigots come out at all hours anonymously on CNS.
      So let me tell you what the Trump and Brexit voters told immigrants in their lands (probably one of which you hail from): GTFOH.

        No village in England or Canada would be called upon to make up a complete jury…don’t you get it ? You can be called to jury service miles from where you live and trial can be miles from where you live to remove the doubt of the jury knowing the defendant, for exactly this reason.

      Hey Buddy or Gal at 5:30pm, do you have access to Netflix ?

      If you do, then I suggest that you take a look at the documentary called “The Killing$ of Tony Blair”. An absolutely great watch especially for anyone who is against greed and corruption.

      By the way, the Cayman Islands is not a Banana Republic but if it was, then how the hell did you end up on our shores ? Don’t tell me that your country’s ship sank and you then came ashore floating on a piece of driftwood.
