Three Women Who Ran Harlem Cash Transfer Shop Busted Stilling Money

June 1, 2017

Two sisters and a third woman who ran a cash transfer shop in East Harlem were busted Thursday for stealing at least $28,000 from immigrants who were trying to send money to Latin America, authorities said.

Perla Ozoria, 30, her sister Ambar Ozoria, 28, and Vilmania DeJesus, 30, would either issue fake receipts to customers or cancel transactions after making them — pocketing the money that was meant to be sent to relatives around the holidays, prosecutors said.

In all, 21 victims have been identified as having been ripped off by the brazen trio between November 1, 2016 and December 28, 2016, at two storefronts under the Girox Express Multiservices umbrella, according to the Manhattan DA.

“They began stealing funds from customers that gave money to them for remittances overseas,” Assistant District Attorney Diego Diaz said at their arraignment in Manhattan Supreme Court.

“The evidence against all three of the defendants is overwhelming,” the ADA added.
