Photo: 13 Bomb Threats to US Consulate, Dominican Republic
Dominican, Maria Velez de Alli is accused of making 13 false bomb threats to the American consulate in the Dominican Republican to cover visa fraud activities.
Authorities allege the 36-year old made 13 calls on December 1, 2011 from 10:20 am through 12:08 pm to cover up a fraud. De Alli allegedly took money from an individual claiming she could obtain a U.S. visa for him. When the client demanded the visa de Alli decided to call the consulate in hopes of closing it down and justifying why she couldn’t produce the visa.
After authorities traced the calls to her cell phone she claimed her chip in her cell phone had been stolen. Her husband was also arrested but later released.
