Internet Scheme Indictment

A New Iberia woman is facing federal fraud charges in what prosecutors allege was a scheme that bilked at least 250 victims out of more than $1 million from 2007 through 2010.  Prosecutors allege that Alice Latula, through her New Iberia business, Triple J's Marketing, solicited victims across the U.S. for two schemes – one promising a 50 percent rate of return per month in a “Profit Sharing Opportunity” plan and another promising returns of $12,500 for every $30 paid, according to the indictment.  The indictment states that Latula made solicitations in Internet chat rooms, on her company web sites, through word-of-mouth and over the telephone.  Latula is set to be arraigned on the charges on Jan. 15.
