Sisters Indicted in Money-Order Scam

Danyal and Annette Reed Danyal and Annette Reed SCSO
MEMPHIS – April 24, 2014 - Two Memphis sisters have been indicted on forgery and other charges after investigators found them in possession of stolen credit cards, state ID’s and more than $835,000 in bogus money orders, said Shelby County Dist. Atty. Gen. Amy Weirich.
Danyal Reed, 26, and Annette Reed, 35, also face charges of criminal simulation over $60,000 for allegedly altering 960 counterfeit money orders pre-written for the amount of $870 each. The name and address blocks were left blank.
Annette Reed also faces charges of identity theft trafficking.
The pair was arrested two years ago when sheriff’s narcotics officers inspected a suspicious package at a FedEx shipping center on Appling Road and discovered the money orders.
The numbers on the money orders were valid, but they already had been used on other money orders that were outstanding.
Detectives delivered the package to the Reeds’ address at 1116 Coppock near Chelsea and Breedlove where Annette Reed said the package belonged to Danyal Reed.
Armed with a search warrant for the house, officers found credit cards, state ID’s, mail and other paperwork that did not belong to anyone at the address.
At least five people identified on the documents previously had reported being victims of pick-pocketing and identity theft.
Both women are free on bond.
