A 36-year-old woman who the police say tricked popular producer Cordell 'Skatta' Burrell that she is the sister of embattled deejay Vybz Kartel and collected over $100,000 was recently arrested and charged after the producer took her to the police himself.
She is Marshalee Cousins, a private investigator, of a St Catherine address.
Cousins, who has been charged with obtaining money by means of false pretence, had her bail extended in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court on Friday.
She is to return to court on September 14, when the matter will be mentioned as the file is incomplete.
Allegations are that a contractual arrangement took place through text messaging where Burrell, who was producing a music soundtrack, was in touch with a person claiming to be Vybz Kartel's associate.
It is alleged that a text message stated that Burrell should make two payments totalling $180,000 to the deejay's sister. It is reported that the funds were paid to the accused and another request was made through a text message for $500,000.
Further allegations are that the complainant, who became suspicious, made arrangements with the accused to collect the second sum of money.
However, it is reported that the accused was held by Burrell and taken to the police were she was subsequently charged.
