Sixty-seven fraud charges for director of Executive Rentals Inc

The director of Executive Rentals Inc. and Premier Pre-Owned Vehicles Inc. appears in the District “A” Magistrates’ Court today charged with 67 counts of criminal deception.

The charges, valued at more than $4 million, were laid against the 59-year-old Rodney Wilkinson of # 2 Friendly Hall Development, Jackmans St Micheal yesterday.

Police say the victims of the offences were predominantly Globe Finance Inc. and Nassco Finance.

The operations of Executive Rentals at Worthing, Christ Church came to a halt earlier this month after Globe Finance, Simpson Finance and another automobile financing entity took possession of more than 100 vehicles.

The Fraud Squad of the Royal Barbados Police Force had been probing reports related to loans for vehicles that did not exist following official complaints from Globe Finance and Nassco Limited that they were unable to locate vehicles they wanted to repossess.

    So who is Rodney Wilkinson? How did he fool so many? What are all the government people doing? They need to be held accountable.

    So i guess wunna gine tell me they got loans for cars that did not exist thru prudent loans officers at local banks? So when you ask for 130,000 to bring in a bmw, you mean you get the money and the bank doan need to see the vehicle? Who issued these loans? I guess when wunna bajans see these heavy rollers in their fancy cars and exiting their big houses that you all don’t be envious- 60% of successful people in bim got there thru illegal means. If i went to the bank and asked for 20,000 to start selling vegetables as an aspiring entrepreneur, i would have to put my kidneys and liver as collateral, get a deposit for half de amount i am asking for, show 10 year projections and budget comparatives of what i can yield, etc……..sigh

    A step in the right direction. This will hopefully set a precedent for more secretly hidden incidences.

    It appears everyone is happy to see a “well-to-do” fall. No cry of “innocent until proven guilty”, no “judge not less ye be judged”, no holding of your political representatives that you employ and pay monthly and turn around and fire you accountable. Yet we are not jealous nor bad-minded. I’m just not understanding where this cry for justice comes from when it is someone who falls from grace that seemingly had something we all craved. I’m not saying he should not be charged and prosecuted but did his actions have such a direct affect on your lives to generate such feedback? Opinions are free to have but being so hypocritical is very unattractive.

    This is really going to affect legitimate business owners who try to do things the right way, and now will be subject to harsher conditions when they negotiate with lending institutions.
    Its already difficult as it stands, and it means we have to give up our first born along with a kidney to secure any type of financing.

    Now well, well, 100 cars involve ,BDS millions, how come only one person is arrested. This is going to be like a rubber band. if the law prevails, wonder who is shivering in they boots and having sleepless nights.
    The man is a fool to take the heat himself. COME ON RBPF , DO YOUR JOB ,GO GET THEM WHO EVER THEY ARE ,WHERE EVER THEY MAYBE.
