Agents with the Bossier Financial Crimes Task Force are trying to find two people involved with separate but similar scams.

In the first case, a woman sold more than 500 bars of what she claimed were each one ounce of silver to a local business back on June 21st.  The buyer paid nearly $6500 for the bogus bars.  Then, on July 10th, a man sold 3 bars of what he claimed were each 12 ounces of 18 carat gold.  Those went for about $4000.

In both cases, initial assessments indicated that the bars were legitimate.  However, subsequent inspections after they were purchased found that the bars contained mostly other metals including zinc and copper. At this point, investigators say there’s nothing to connect the two cases.

The suspect in the first case was caught on a bank security camera when she cashed the check she had received for payment.  In the second case, the suspect was caught on a security camera at the victim’s business.  Please take a look at both photos and if you recognize either or both of the suspects, call Bossier Crime Stoppers at 424-4100.  If your information pans out, you could be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1000.
