Guyanese journalist wanted for questioning over commercial fraud allegation
Published on February 15, 2016 Email To Friend    Print Version

GEORGETOWN, Guyana -- Police in Guyana are said to be seeking the whereabouts of a local journalist against whom an allegation of commercial fraud has been made.

Gary Eleazer, a reporter attached to a local private publication in Guyana, is accused of using the name of another emerging local newspaper, the Guyana Guardian, to solicit advertising dollars from several local unsuspecting businesses under the pretext that he is an employee of that media outfit.

According to a report filed with the Fraud Squad of the Criminal Investigations Department in Georgetown, Eleazer is not an employee or associate of the Guyana Guardian but has held himself out to the public as an employee of that publication, and has continued to lay such claims even on his Facebook page to unsuspecting persons.

Dennis Adonis, managing director and editor-in-chief of the Guyana Guardian, said that he has no such person in his employ in Guyana or within either of the other two publications in which he has a vested interest abroad.

He added that the activities by the person in question was brought to his attention by a member of Guyana’s Private Sector Commission last Friday from whose company the imposter had tried to obtain advertising monies.

Immediately Adonis and his partners began looking for the imposter. In spite of their efforts they were unable to physically locate the man, but had made it clear in emails to him that the publication was aware of his deception.

However, the imposter remains undeterred as he continued to post content on a shady website that uses the domain name guardiangy.com and falsely labels itself as the Guyana Guardian.

According to records held by Guyana’s registrar of deeds, the Guyana Guardian is a publication that is owned by Dennis Adonis, while the international Who.is database has identified the online version of the publication to be in operation for more than two years at guyanaguardian.com.

On the other hand, Eleazer’s fake Guyana Guardian is operating at guardiangy.com and is not listed as a legally registered business in Guyana. The Who.is database has listed it as being an online entity whose domain came into existence about two months ago.
