“How can something like a lift station go from

sure some of the councillors felt that way too,” said

Woman charged
with fraud
MIRIAM OSTERMANN
Times Associate Editor

A 42-year-old woman from Wheatland
County has been charged with over
300 fraud-related charges, after numer-
ous citizens fell victim to the fraud that
launched an investigation by the Strath-
more RCMP.
Jane Elizabeth Moore befriended in-
dividuals, convincing them she was a
member of a well-known wealthy Cal-
gary family with an inheritance of $38
million. By falsifying bank documents
and a court order that stated she would
be receiving millions of dollars, she was

exclusively at
able to persuade the victims to give her
money, assuring them the repayment
once the inheritance was available.
Moore was arrested on an outstand-
ing warrant on Aug. 28, charged with
317 offences. These included 250 Crimi-
nal Code offences: two charges of ut-
tering threats; two charges of uttering
a forged document; two fraud charges
over $5,000, and 242 charges of fraud
under $5,000.
A day later, Moore was further charged
with 67 additional fraud charges of sim-
ilar occurrence.
The Wheatland County resident had
previously been known to police and
used myriad aliases such as Jane Sea-
man, Elizabeth Seaman, Jane Norman,
