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.
