    Where did this happen. Where is he located, more or less. What does this guy do?
    Do you know this is now a jail offence in the Penal Code of the DR??
    Have you sworn out a warrent for him-a "querella"
    This is important.

    If Steve Boutet is his CORRECT name, he sounds French Canadian. What sort of official documentation did you see? Passport? Driving licence? Any form of ID? Did you check things out with Tim Hall at Cafe Cito &/or the Canadian Consulate office? Have you spoken to Joanne at Sam's Bar? She might know something as a lot of Ex-pats go there. She might also put up something on her notice board!

    If he was here on holiday, which tour company did he come in with? It might be worth having a word with them & see if they can locate a home address through the travel agents used.

    As the others have said, give us some more details & I will certainly put the word out in the Puerto Plata area - he MIGHT still be around.

    Good luck - Grahame

    Thanks for your help. Sorry I did not answer before, I did not think I would get response so quickly. Steeve Boutet is French canadian, 25 years old. Second time in Puerto Plata. He is about 5 feet 10 inches, rases his head, blond. He does not work he hangs in bars. Was seen in the disco el basurero in Puerto Plata. He robbed his best friends credit card in Canada to come back now about 2 weeks ago, his friend is also looking for him, he purchased an open ticket with Panam for 3,000 can$. His friend called me to let me know that where he worked he also cheated everyone, with false checks and so on. The problem is the lawyers and even the judge I spoke to ask me to locate him firs. If I see him, he may change city then. He ows me 800 US. The first check I accepted from him, the new cashier at the bank told me that the money was available and this is why I helped with the money for his return ticket to Canada. He stayed only one week in Canada. I have a picture from him. Iknow the law here, it is just hard to find where he lives. He travels just with his birth certificate. I went to the Canadian consulate and they say they cannot do anything. This money was my money set aside for my son's private school at the Learning Tree. Since it happened , I just don't feel good about myself for wanting to help another time. Thanks again.

    Good luck

    I would think the first thing for you to do is get along to the police station & file a report about the fraud!! Give THEM the pictures of him & get them to issue an arrest warrant. If he has got warrants out against him in Canada, the Canadian Consulate MUST take an interest in the case surely, so they can arrange extradition!! If you get the run around from the Consulate up here, try talking to the Embassy in Santo Domingo. There is a new Ambassador in the DR - I am sure he would want to start off by being very helpful!!!

    I would expect there could be legal problems if you put this persons photo on DR1 making accusations as laid out above - better check it with Dalores/Rob first!!

    Next, get around to the bars & hotels warning them of the possible dangers of this guy & to inform you or the police if they see him (again, pass over copies of his pictures to them).

    Salutary lesson to be learned here - don't trust anyone especially where money is concerned. Don't lend money to anyone other than close friends & relatives (even THEY can be doubtful too) unless you have collateral to at least 130% of the loan & THAT must have proven ownership/title of which YOU keep a copy!!!

    Sorry Diane, I commiserate with you losing US $800, especially as it was for your son's education, but this is quite an inexpensive lesson you have learned - it COULD have been for thousands of dollars as many others have been coned for!! No-body asks me for a loan these days, they know the answer before asking!!

    Good luck - e-Mail me a copy of the best photoI you have of this guy, I will keep my eyes open for someone of his discription & let you know if I see him!! - Grahame.

    If the check was written on an account in Canada, I doubt very much if you have any legal recourse in the DR. (Mind you, I`m not an attorney) Don`t expect to much help from the authorities either. I`m talking from experience. Hope you find him and at least have him spend a weekend at the Grey Hilton.

    Lightbulb Anyone ever stopped to think

    This is one side of the story and we don't really know at all if it is true? Hope you don't find this guy, report back and she kills him as a result and it all has nothing to do with the alleged theft ( and I would like to see a $3,000 PanAm round trip ticket and how the name on the card and ticket don't match and the credit card sale went through).

    As I said before, Diane, you must place a Querella at the Police Station. If you don't want to go, have your lawyer do it. Make a lot of Photocopies of the false checks. Copies of the Photograh are also helpful. Take all the copies to the police, tell them the banks have the originals!.

    Offer some money if they can locate this guy. {b]IF[/b] the Police want to, they can locate anybody here.

    You might want to check with Giovanny Santos the local Manager of PanAm, and see if he really did come down on one of their flights...if he is Canadien he might have originated in Portsmouth, NH.. Get details, Diane, they all help.... Giovanny can be reached at Santair, it is in the Phone book.

    Regards,
