Woman charged in Newtown fraud sought Sandy cash
Saturday - 12/29/2012, 11:51am EST
NEW YORK (AP) - A woman charged with trying to swindle donors by posing as a relative of a child killed in the Connecticut school massacre had also been soliciting money for Hurricane Sandy relief.
Nouel Alba was arrested Thursday and accused of concocting bogus tales about having to identify her nephew's body in order to raise money for a "funeral fund" for the victims.
The New York Post reports ( http://bit.ly/UyyRTk) that in the days after Sandy struck, Alba also posted Web messages claiming she had founded several charities to assist storm victims.
But the postings were filled with false claims, as well as an invalid tax-ID number for one organization.
In an interview with CNN before her arrest, Alba denied being involved in any scam.
