More land fraud – pastor scammed out of $13,000 in land transaction

Posted: Thursday, February 22, 2024. 9:14 am CST.

By Aaron Humes: A pastor from Belize City finds himself out some $13,100 which he paid to obtain land that he eventually found was in another person’s name.

Jesus Contreras of Leodigorio Membrano Street told police he had been dealing with one Angel Castillo since December of 2021, who claimed to be selling a parcel of land for $23,000.

According to Contreras, he paid Castillo $8,900 cash in February and March of 2022 and another $4,200 between April and June and agreed to pay the rest when the transfer was completed.

In October 2022, Contreras then received from Castillo a copy of an apparent land document with his name. On August 25, 2023, Contreras made checks at the Lands Department in Belmopan and was informed that the land in question was registered in another person’s name and he has not heard from Castillo since.

Police are investigating.
