Asheboro woman arrested for selling false advertising to local businesses
ASHEBORO, N.C. — Police have arrested a woman for trying to sell businesses advertising in a publication that does not exist.
Kristal Auman Reeder, 44, of Asheboro, is charged with attempting to obtain property by false pretense.
Police were notified of the scam after a local business owner became suspicious and felt her offer might be a scam.
Following an investigation, it was determined that Reeder was trying to acquire $235 from the business without providing any services in return.
Reeder is confined in the Randolph County Jail under a $40,000 secured bond for this offense as well as three other counts of obtaining property by false pretense out of Guilford County.
If any other businesses purchased advertising from Reeder, they are encouraged to contact the Asheboro Police Department at 336-626-1300.
