Strathmore RCMP have charged a Wheatland County woman with 317 fraud related offences.

Police say Jane Moore, 42, befriended victims and convinced them she was a member of a wealthy Calgary family and claimed she had an inheritance of $38 million.

She then conned victims into giving her money saying she'd repay them once her inheritance was available.

Moore falsified bank documents and a court order to help back her lie that she'd be receiving the $38 million.

According to police, on Aug. 28 she was arrested on an outstanding warrant and charged with 250 criminal code offences, including two counts of uttering threats, two counts of uttering a forged document, two counts of fraud over $5,000, and 242 counts of fraud under $5,000.

On Aug. 29 she was charged with 67 additional charges.

RCMP say Moore is known to them with a history of similar offences under different alias' including the names Jane Seaman, Elizabeth Seaman, Jane Norman, Jane Plimmer, JJ O'Conner, and Jane Smith.

Moore will appear in Strathmore Provincial Court on Sept. 19.
