Snellville woman accused of horse trailer scam

SNELLVILLE — A Snellville woman is accused of baiting Craigslist users into wiring more than $40000 for horse trailers that never existed. ...

Police believe Maureen Crosson, 45, used the popular online classified ad post to bilk victims as far flung as Illinois, Montana and Texas.

Crosson reportedly suckered victims into wiring a total between $40,000 and $50,000 to her business checking account, Seysha Investments of Snellville, promising advertised horse trailers in return. Two transactions listed in Crosson’s arrest warrants are for sums of $8,900 and $9,200.

“Within days, she would withdraw the money from the account and, of course, no horse trailer would arrive,” a Gwinnett police investigator wrote in an e-mail.

Crosson was arrested on related charges in Dawson County on July 6, where she remains without bond.
