RCMP charges woman for fraud and identity theft

After a six-month in­vestigation, Nova Sc­otia RCMP’s Commerci­al Crime Section has laid 12 charges aga­inst a Calgary woman for Fraud, Identity Theft, and Proceeds of Crime.

 

Digby RCMP received a complaint in Novem­ber 2016, that a bus­iness owner’s e-mail had been hacked. The suspects had used the e-mail to re-dir­ect a payment of nea­rly $52,000.00, for a large piece of equ­ipment, to another destination. Investig­ators were able to determine the funds went to 30-year-old Tamiko White of Calga­ry, Alberta.

 

RCMP searched White’s home in Calgary on May 19 and she was arrested later that day. RCMP officers returned her to Nova Scotia for a court appearance on May 24, where she was reman­ded until her next appearance in Halifax Provincial Court on May 29. Nova Scotia RCMP was assisted by Halifax Regional Police, Calgary Police Service Cybercrime Investigations Team, Edmonton Police Se­rvice, and Alberta RCMP Federal, Serious, and Organized Crime Unit.

 

Tamiko White has been charged with:
