Police investigating the case said that the money involved is estimated to be more than $100,000. The amount lost ranges from $200 to $20,000. Investigators also said it is unlikely that these victims could recover the money even if the case goes through civil remedy. 

SR Cash Remit was acting as an agent to Family Express money transfer company. Every time that a client sends money through SR Cash Remit, the information needed to be passed along to Family Express. But on July SR Cash Remit issued 3 bounced checks with sum amount of $80,000 to Family Express.

On Dec. 2, she was charged with three counts of obtaining $5,000 under false pretenses due to the bounced checks she issued. On December 16, she was released on bail but failed to show up on court hearing. And warrant was issued for her arrest.
