My TripAdvisor Review about Canadian Conman Victim’s

My name is James Fredrick Jensen I am a Canadian that lived in Belize on the Island of San Pedro, this is another chapter of my Novella about the time that past after my Wife Janis Died in Central America.

 I am a canadian and am a victim of being conned by a conman in Belize.

Vince and Cherie Chenot Rose


were business partners with me James Jensen in a Liquor business in Punta Gorda Belize Called Adiferous Wines and Liquors. Little is known about the Roses and there past in the US.

I met the Roses through the owner of the San Pedro Sun Tamara Sniffen. This meeting took place shortly after my Wife Jan Died in Central America as the Roses were attempting to capture a crocodile on the Island of San Pedro in Belize.

I owned the local Liquor business on the island of San Pedro called the Liquor Box. I took the Roses to the Liquor store and offered them a beer for all there hard work. After talking for a while with Cherie Chenot Rose she expressed interest in opening a Liquor Store in Punta Gorda Belize there home for Aces American Crocodile Education Sanctuary. ACES as it is known in Punta Gorda is a 30 plus acre compound at the mouth of a river outside of Punta Gorda.

I invested with Vince and Cherie Chenot Rose $37,000 to fund the inventory of the Liquor Business in Punta Gorda. I also donated $10,000 in the American Crocodile Education Sanctuary in Belize. The donation was to build a new pen for crocodiles at the Sanctuary.

My one time lawyer Robert P. Martin also donated $20,000 US as a tax deduction into the American Crocodile Education Sanctuary through a group called Friends of Belize.

Within 6 months the business relationship had become strained with the Roses. Cherie Chenot Rose assumed the Liquor Business would operate on its own. With Cherie lacking business skills to manage this operation one day the Roses sold off the inventory and closed the business without giving me any notice.

What happened after that event still shocks me. The Roses had me arrested claiming that I had swindled a young american couple out of there investment into real estate. The truth is I was swindled and the only way to cover this fact was to make up charges and have me arrested.

This was well planned including a woman who owns a Newspaper in San Pedro. I was arrested on a Tuesday, her paper is weekly and was already at the printer. Some how I was the lead story for that weeks addition. She is close friends with the young couple from Punta Gorda.  The Belize media had a field day with me. I made every news channel and newspaper in Belize. And yes headlines on this woman’s newspaper in Belize.


While I was in Hattieville Central Prison in Belize my one time attorney Robert P.martin in the US conspired with the Roses and filed an action against me  claiming I was involved with money laundering. My Belize bank accounts were frozen. What appeared to those that put me in this place was that I had no money and soon I would either spend the rest of my life in Hattieville Central Prison in Belize or agree to there offer.

Fortunately I had many friends in San Pedro that supported me. With their help each day a woman came to the Hattieville Central Prison in Belize and gave me money and food. You need money in Hattieville Central Prison. You can bribe the guards, get booze and lots of drugs. I had money moved around from Honduras to this woman in Belize. $30,000 US later I have my life inside Hattieville Central Prison with Cell phones and documents going back and forth every day. Had a so so attorney representing me. A fool at best.

Finally I was granted bail. The supreme court justice that granted me bail found that no evidence existed to support the charges against me. This was a media event for Belize. Sadly with the judges ruling I became old news and not much was reported about me after that. After the Judges ruling he called me to his office handed me my passport in his chambers telling me leave. The reason he said, hell I would have left after the Judgement for Jan’s medical bills.
