Hurley woman indicted in $600,000 fraud scheme
KINGSTON, N.Y. — A Hurley woman is facing charges that she engaged in a fraud scheme over a 10 year period, soliciting loans totaling more than $600,000 from more than 30 friends, neighbors and patients of a dental practice where she worked as a dental assistant, Ulster County District Attorney Holley Carnright said Friday.
Jeri Lynn Ross, 63, was indicted Friday on two counts of scheme to defraud and two counts of perjury, both felonies, Carnright said.
Ross was arrested after an investigation by the state police found she had engaged in a decade-long scheme to get personal loans under false pretenses, Carnright said.
The name of the dental practice was not immediately available.
Ross is expected to be arraigned in Ulster County Court next week.
