A woman has been slapped with charges of obtaining money by means of false pretence and conspiracy to defraud after allegedly pretending to be a sales representative and distributor of lace wigs.

She has been identified as 19-year-old Jodene Williams of Salt Pond Gardens in St Catherine.

Reports are that Williams lured a woman to believe she sells lace wigs after advertising the product via the internet. 

The woman reportedly deposited $20,000 to Williams’ account for the purchase of the wigs, but became suspicious when the product she ordered was not delivered.

A report was made to the police and an investigation launched which led to the arrest of Williams on Monday, July 6.

Her court date is being finalised.
