Strathmore, Alta. RCMP have laid hundreds of charges against a woman who allegedly befriended and then defrauded multiple people.

Jane Elizabeth Moore is charged with two counts of uttering threats, two counts of fraud over $5,000 and 242 counts of fraud under $5,000.

In a Wednesday news release, RCMP said the 42-year-old allegedly convinced victims that she was a member of a “well-known wealthy Calgary family.”

“She claimed she had an inheritance of $38 million and was able to convince the victims to give her money based on the premise that she would repay the money as soon as her inheritance was available.”

Police allege Moore falsified bank documents to show that she would be receiving money.

The accused has a history of similar offences and has been known to use the aliases: Jane Seaman, Elizabeth Seaman, Jane Norman, Jane Plimmer, JJ O’Conner and Jane Smith.

Moore is scheduled to appear in a Strathmore Provincial Court later this month.
