I'd love to know what he did to piss off "Trisha Young" who features heavily 8)

Quote:
TWO CARIBBEAN companies are suing an Irish developer over allegedly diverting for his own use large sums out of $52 million paid to his companies for a major hotel and resort development in the Caribbean allegedly left unfinished.

It is claimed Pádraig (Paudie) O’Halloran (40) misappropriated substantial funds to pay for his planned wedding in Ireland, to be organised by Weddings by Franc; buy property in the Caribbean; renovate his rented Barbados home; buy expensive cars and a $65,000 teardrop diamond ring for his girlfriend; and lease a private plane.

Mr O’Halloran, his girlfriend Suzanne Floyd and others are now being sued before the Caribbean courts by two companies owned by David Ames, of Essex, England.

Proceedings have also been brought in the Irish courts.

A former employee of Mr O’Halloran’s, Trisha Young, said in an affidavit the “key motive behind the siphoning off of funds was to continue to enable his beloved girlfriend Suzanne Floyd to live her lavish lifestyle”.

Quote:
In her affidavit, Ms Young, who worked for Mr O’Halloran between 2007 and 2009, said she believed he had a reputation in the Middle East for “running away from projects he could not finish”.

As I suggested before ( http://www.thepropertypin.com/viewtopic.php?f=50&t=28416&p=357199&hilit=peter+kelly#p357199 ) we should have Peter Kelly and Commercial Court No 1 as a TV channel, not Dail TV. This stuff is much more entertaining! And the emails! Either they were really written by someone thick as shit, or they were forged by someone equally stupid.

And here's one for the Woolies:

The comments on this page allege that Trisha Young is an infamous con-artist and David Ames is running an international Ponzi scheme. Then it seems that "Trisha Young" (which is apparently an alias) starts posting herself...

It could be an interesting case alright!

This is fascinating. Trisha is not what would pass muster as a reliable witness ....not even as a bystander to a feud in Tuam. There is a right juicy blog post here following on that other one :D

I would like to clarify that the ICE Group mentioned in the blog link following is entirely unrelated to the ICE Group owned run by former FF Senator and failed general election candidate Margaret Cox....not that Margaret has been near this part of her website for 3 years. Paudie owns or controls the other ICE Group and should clarify that unconnectedness seeing as Margaret has had her one for years.

CAPS by the blogger . Trisha is known by a number of aliases it seems. Even Stuart Pearson could be said to have had many personalities but thankfully only the one name :)

FELLOW READERS: PLEASE NOTE THAT DEVONI YOUNG A/K/A TRICIA YOUNG A/K/A TRICIA HINDS A/K/A TRICIA DEVONISH IS THE AUTHOR OF REPLIES 8 THROUGH 13. SHE IS A HELL OF A CON ARTIST AND FRAUDSTER BUT LACKS ANY SIGNIFICANT LITERARY OR GRAMMATICAL SKILLS. TRICIA-HOW ARE YOUR CRIMINAL CASES GOING? YOU MAY HAVE ONE OTHER TO DEAL WITH IN THE NEAR FUTURE.


Trisha made the papers in Barbados some years back when charged with fraud against her employer, Cable and Wireless.

As for David Ames, has he ever finished any of his carribean follies and does he have any happy investors in his schemes, anywhere ???? Touch of the Ciaráns about the man :D

This lot, Harlequin , are rather adept at issuing thunderous legal threats ....rather like McAnthony and MRI are in fact .

The most interesting single observation about them.

http://www.singingpig.co.uk/forums/thread/671635.aspx

Quote:
I do not believe that any real estate has been developed by Harlequin in the 8 years they've been in business. Let them wait. If you said in two months you will buy at the price they offered you previously, I suspect they'd do the deal. If not, as a Harlequin investor, if you ended up with teh same results as me, I can assure you you'd be better off not doing the deal in the first place.

I invested with Harlequin in August 2006. My develpment was due to complete in December 2008. Having been sold a development which Harlequin clearly had no intention of developing, I have been trying to get a refund for over a year. Harlequin have written to my solicitor that they have nothing to do with the contracts, it's the Caribbean company. Company searches have revealed that Caribbean company has no money.

Based on my story, have a think about whether to 'invest' with Harlequin, or alternatively, make the most of the ongoing housing market price re-adjustment over here.

What's the political angle?

That's the only reason for a property related story to be in the Soup...

Developer used €9.5m meant for luxury apartments to buy a private jet and grand piano for his girlfriend, court told - Ann O'Loughlin -> http://www.independent.ie/national-news ... 77747.html

Quote:
A deverloper unlawfully diverted over US$13million (€9.5m) for his own benefit from $50million (€36.8m) funds paid towards the completion of a luxury resort in the Caribbean, it was claimed in the High Court.
Padraig O'Halloran (42) of Shippool, Inishannon, Co. Cork, allegedly misappropriated the funds and various payments were made by his company to Irish bank accounts including €120,000 and US $72,000 to Weddings by Franc and €20,000 to Adare Manor, it is claimed.
The owners and operators of the luxury resort in Buccament Bay, St Vincent and the Grenadines, Harlequin Property SVG Ltd and Harlequin Hotels and Resorts Ltd, have brought an action claiming Mr O'Halloran also bought a large number of assets with the funds.

3,000 Britons fall victim to £250million fantasy villa fiasco: Holiday home scheme promoted by Pat Cash investigated by fraud police -> http://www.thisismoney.co.uk/news/artic ... olice.html

Quote:
Up to 3,000 Britons have poured up to £250 million of their savings into a controversial Caribbean property scheme which is facing the threat of legal action.
Several investors say they fear financial calamity after being persuaded by pension advisers to put large sums into projects run by Essex-based Harlequin Property. It has promised to build 6,000 luxury villas in St Lucia, St Vincent, Barbados and the Dominican Republic. So far only 300 have been constructed.
