Scam lands woman in jail

A Georgia woman is currently in Kosciusko County jail after being charged with money laundering.

Kosciusko County police arrested Joanne Karene McCrary, 74, Calhoun, Ga., after recently driving to Georgia due to a local Kosciusko elderly couple having filed a report after being scammed out of thousands of dollars by a “Jamaican lottery scam.” According to police, the couple discovered their Social Security checks had been diverted to a location in Georgia. Local police followed the money trail to McCrary in Georgia who police say was illegally transferring the stolen funds and mailing them in turn to Jamaica in the form of bank cards.

According to police, McCrary had previously fallen victim to the scam and alleged that she had become a “mule” for the Jamaican criminals. KCSD officers are working with officials from the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the U.S. Federal Trade Commission to locate other potential victims.
