Indictment alleges advertisement sales scam

OXFORD -- A Shannon woman has been indicted on charges that she attempted to defraud businesses by selling ads in a fictitious publication. 

 

WTVA-TV reports that prosecutors allege 49-year-old Veronica Rice told victims the ads would be placed in a publication distributed to military personnel and their families. 

 

She was indicted this past week by a federal grand jury on four counts of wire fraud. 

 

The indictment says Rice and others conspired to sell the ads for the non-existent CNFR Guide. 

 

Court documents say Rice and others used fictitious names to sell the ads. 

 

She has pleaded not guilty to the allegations.
