Greer woman pleads guilty to Nigerian scam

Sep 27, 2011 5:41:00 PM - thestate.com
A 45-year-old Greer woman has admitted to playing a part in a Nigerian counterfeit check and money order scam.

Federal prosecutors said Glenda Perry pleaded guilty Tuesday to mail fraud conspiracy. She faces up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine when she is sentenced at a later date.

Authorities say Perry worked with a man she only communicated with on the phone and through email.

Investigators say the man sent Perry counterfeit checks and money orders with a list of names. Perry would then send about 250 checks and money orders a week to the people on the list, telling them they had been picked to be mystery shoppers and needed to cash the items, then wire some of the proceeds to a bank in Hong Kong.
