RCMP in Strathmore, Alta. say Jane Elizabeth Moore, a 42-year-old woman, had been charged with 80 fraud-related offences.
Mounties launched an investigation when a resident of Wheatland County report they had been the victim of fraud and lost thousands of dollars.
“Over the course of the investigation, police discovered the woman had used a fraudulent bank letter to convince several victims to give her money,” RCMP said in a news release on Monday.
Moore faces two counts of uttering threats, two counts of fraud over $5,000 and 78 counts of fraud under $5,000.
She was sentenced to two years in jail in 2010 after pleading guilty to dozens of fraud-related charges. The offences, which targeted southern Alberta businesses, occurred between April 2008 and August 2009 and the frauds totalled around $15,000.
