New York And Florida Women Arrested For Defrauding Over A Dozen Victims Of More Than $7 Million In Connection With Romance Scams

United States Attorney's Office Southern District of New York

Damian Williams, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, and James Smith, the Assistant Director in Charge of the New York Field Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (“FBI”), announced today the unsealing of a Complaint charging ROSANNA LISA STANLEY and GINA GUY for their roles in a series of romance schemes and for laundering the proceeds of those schemes.  STANLEY was arrested in North Miami Beach, Florida, and will be presented in federal court in the Southern District of Florida later today.  GUY was arrested in New York, New York, and will be presented in Manhattan federal court later today before U.S. Magistrate Judge Robyn F. Tarnofsky.

U.S. Attorney Damian Williams said: “As alleged, Rosanna Lisa Stanley and Gina Guy callously defrauded elderly victims who were simply looking for companionship.  They allegedly used the millions of dollars in fraud proceeds to lead lives of luxury at their victims’ expense.  As today’s arrests demonstrate, perpetrators of romance scams will be held to account for their crimes.”

FBI Assistant District in Charge James Smith said: “Gina Guy and Rosanna Lisa Stanley allegedly took advantage of innocent individuals seeking companionship and exploited them for their own benefit.  Collecting millions of dollars from their victims, the perpetrators allegedly gained and betrayed the trust of primarily elderly individuals to fund their luxury purchases.  The FBI is committed to ensuring those who capitalize on personal connections for selfish reasons are brought to justice and prevented from repeating their crimes.”
