Evening Post 7 March 1878
AN ACCOMPLISHED SWINDLER.
A few weeks ago a young man of aristocratic appearance, who is said to be connected with a family high in social position in England, landed in Wellington. He gave his name as Jacobsen, and on arrival in port complained to the Captain of the Araby Maid, in which ship he came out, that he had been robbed of a valuable gold watch. The captain made inquiries, and in the meantime Jacobsen went to the Empire Hotel, where he lived on the fat of the land. When asked to pay he made some excuse. He borrowed money from several people in the town, and suddenly disappeared. It was supposed that he had returned to England stowed-away in the St. Leonard''s, with the captain of which he was well acquainted, but this supposition has since proved to be incorrect. He went to Pahautanui, Where he put up at Mrs. Hillen''s Hotel, living, as at the Empire, on the best of everything. He here represented himself as Count Mouraveiff, and said he was connected with one of the Russian Embassies, and had come out to New Zealand to write a book on the country. His bill was so heavy that Mrs. Hillen requested payment at the end of the first week. He said he had not sufficient money in his pocket, but would draw on the Union Bank if anyone would take the draft to town. He accordingly drew for £10, and Mr. London, carrier, brought the draft to the bank and cashed it. At the time no one looked at the signature, but it has since been found to be H. Jacobsen. The ready manner in which the draft was honored removed any doubts which Mrs. Hillen might have, and she let him remain for another fortnight without presenting her bill. At the end of this time, he said he would proceed up country to see the interior, and he wanted a couple of horses and a groom. This was on Tuesday last. Mrs. Hillier sold him a horse for £20, for which he gave a cheque. For his reckoning, which came to about £12, he gave another cheque for £20, and Mrs. Hillen handed him the balance in notes. Another horse was obtained from Mr. Avery, of the Taita, and a cheque for £10 given in payment. The Count in the meantime had managed to insinuate himself into the good graces of several settlers in the neighborhood, and from them he borrowed various sums. Mr. Robinson, who was staying at the hotel, lent him £31, and when preparing to leave, the Count gave him a cheque for the amount. A servant having beon obtained, this pleasant-spoken, liberal gentleman set out on the road for Foxton yesterday morning, amid many good wishes that he might have a pleasant journey. Later in the day the cheques were presented to the Union Bank for payment, when it was found that there was no account to the credit of "A. H Mouraveiff," and they were consequently returned dishonored. The police were at once communicated with, and telegrams were sent to the constables stationed along the road. Constable Cootes, of Otaki, succeeded in tracing the "Count," whom he arrested. The case will probably be heard at the Resident Magistrate''s Court to-morrow.
