Catriona is a manipulative con artist’, fraud victim blasts Carey after she referred to herself as a ‘fall guy’
Catriona is a manipulative con artist’, fraud victim blasts Carey after she referred to herself as a ‘fall guy’; She is accused of defrauding up to 30 people out of around €400,000 by offering to purchase their mortgage debt at a discount from her brother, Kilkenny hurling legend DJ Carey, and a former Irish hockey player.
An investigation conducted by RTE’s Prime Time earlier this year revealed that more than €200,000 moved from distressed homeowners into a corporate account owned by Carey was allegedly spent on personal goods and services, including holidays abroad and a €55,000 BMW.
More than twenty former clients have accused Carey of fraud, and the Garda National Economic Crime Bureau is conducting an investigation.
Colin Finnegan, 53, who lost a €15,000 deposit due to Carey’s deception, refuted the charges. A man from County Louth stated, “I wouldn’t believe a word this parasite uttered; she preyed on innocent people.”
Because it was not her own money, she saw no reason to spend the deposits on vehicles and vacations. It is challenging to comprehend what she is saying. This hoax has victimized so many people that I am uncertain when we will be able to reclaim our losses.
The businessman Colin went on “She is very aware of her predicament and plans to bring down as many individuals as possible.
People who participated in her deception are now turning on one another; therefore, we are entitled to compensation for our pain. Andrew Hickey stated that the victims were “furious and appalled” after losing €15,000 to Carey’s deception.
All of her assertions were false, including that she had handled dozens of contracts without trouble and had guaranteed my payment.
“The €400,000 in client assets that my company,
Careysfort Asset Estates, previously held are gone and irretrievable,” Carey boasted in a yesterday-published interview.
As the 44-year-old woman asserted, the contracts “were good” and her colleague, whom she refers to as the “ringleader,” was purchasing customer loans from banks, she was correct.
Additional contributions of €400,000 pushed the individual’s total fundraising to €800,000. Carey has no relation to this person.
Carey’s $200,000 in personal expenses drained her clients’ $400,000 in funds. She apologised to the clients, stating, “I’m sorry for my role in this, but I need you to know that I, too, was duped.” The culprit can now go about their regular life without fear of being identified in the same manner I was.
Sharon also asserted that they were very enthusiastic about the topic. Sharon stated that it was all due to people’s anger over unfulfilled contracts and other issues at the time. I have nothing to conceal regarding my actions.
Both of them defrauded us of money! According to the Sunday World, Sharon revealed at the Midleton Garda station in Cork that she had mentioned Carey’s associate.
Everyone who knows me well is aware that I’ve owned a vehicle since I was twenty years old. I began my endeavor with the finest of intentions: to produce income, address my own debt concerns, and assist others in a similar circumstance.
There should be repercussions for all of us, including myself, who participated in this. “I can only hope that those accountable, including myself, be held accountable. If I must pay a fee for this, I will do it without complaint.
I went into it with the purpose of eliminating my debt and assisting others. We had a positive outlook on the future.
