THE WRONG OFFICE. LADY WHO CALLED WITH m00 TO INVEST. How a lady with £100 to invest is said to have walked into the wrong office and parted with her money was. told in a case at Co-.en- try on Thursday, when Herbert Ford, insur- ance broker, was committed for triai at the next Warwick Assizes, charged with obtain- ing ClOO by fraud from Miss Lizzie Daven- port, of Berbswell, near Coventry. Last October Miss Davenport went to see Mr. Lord. the City Treasurer, to invest her sav- ings in Coventry Corporation stock. It was alleged that by mis-take she went into Ford's office, and he. not telling her she had come t-a, the wrong office, promised to attend to the investment. She handed him £100, but subsequently, finding her mistake, wrote for its return, and received a cheque. This was afterwards dishonoured at the bank. The prisoner, it was stated, absconded, and was arrested in Blackburn.
