42 people get ripped off by a woman name Jennifer Lam -Chen. This lady posed as an official grant writer, told people she was a lawyer who graduated from stanford.
She recently packed up and closed her Office, SRTL Consulting at 3127 E Warm Springs Rd st 100 las vegas NV 89120. Claiming she could not afford the rent anymore. She says she is working from home.
This woman has personally recieved $10,000 from myself. She has yet to produce any documentation to me about my grants. I began this process with her in June of 2008.
She said she became very ill and was in the hospital for heart issues, then excuse after excuse no call after no call..... the string of excuses keep repeating themselves. She cant really explain were the money went, the latest story is that a couple of people she had employed took the money. I only know a couple names from that group Myra, Laura, Gene, and Michelle. I did meet a few of these people in her office (Myra, and gene). It wouldnt suprise me if they were involved in this scandal as well and decided to bail as soon as they thought things were getting heated.
I recently recieved a check from her for $4,000 to attempt to repay me the money she stole. The check bounced.
Obviously the grant thing is a fraud, but i would like to recover my $10,000. I have a ton of documentation from receipts and promise to pay backs and the bounced checks. I have sent her a certified letter about the bounced check. My next step is the District attorney. I intend on contacting a local news station as well. She no longer has an office but i know her home address and cell numbers.
I know alot of people personally who have lost thousands of dollars due to this scam. I seen the report filed from chicago, just wondering if you have more information for me, as to how to prosecute and recover my money.
