YONKERS - A New Rochelle woman has been charged with defrauding people of nearly $40,000 by offering services that she never delivered.

The New York State Attorney General's Office says 42-year-old Sonia Vertucci was indicted after allegedly operating a scheme from 2012-13 out of Queens.

Authorities say she demanded cash up-front for services like shipping and offering immigrants Social Security cards, and collected more than $38,000.

She later moved to New Rochelle, and according to residents, set up shop at Heads Together Inc. on Division Street. It's currently unclear if she scammed anyone in Westchester.

If convicted, Vertucci faces seven years in prison.

News 12 has learned Vertucci also has several sign code violations and court appearance tickets in the city of New Rochelle.
