Dancehall sensation Gully Bop’s fiancée Shauna Chin has been allegedly arrested by the Jamaican Flying Squad for scamming a Canadian event promoter.
Yesterday, the rumour mill was alive with news that Chin was arrested.
However, Hype Life Magazine understands that Chin was not arrested but was called in by the Major Organised Crime and Anti-Corruption Agency (MOCA) to speak about allegations that she had collected money for a show in Canada.
Shauna Chin told media reporters that she was called in after a Canadian promoter sent payment to someone in Jamaica claiming to be her, for 5 shows.
Chin said the issue started when she saw a message on Gully Bop’s Facebook page from a man claiming he had sent US$3,000 (J$345,000) via Western Union as downpayment for five dates in Canada. Despite his insistence, Chin said she explained to the man that she did not receive any money for bookings. The man later made a report to MOCA.
Chin said she visited MOCA with documents to prove she did not conduct any business with the complainant.
She stressed that she does not take bookings and Heavy D has been Gully Bop’s official booking agent since December.
Heavy D also stressed that he is the only person who does bookings for Gully Bop. He said the dates which the man claimed he had bookings for have been booked by another person as far back as February.
Heavy D said his system is very difficult to defraud.
He stressed that all of Gully Bop’s relevant information is also available on his website, GullyBopMusic.com.
Earlier this year, persons set up fake Gully Bop social media pages in order to scam promoters.
Gully Bop is currently recording new songs, working on his EP and designing T-Shirts for his clothing line.
He will perform in Canada on May 1 and 2 after which he’ll leave for his European Tour.
