United States v. Rosanne Day et al.
United States v. Rosanne Day, Robert Paul Davis, Genevieve Renee Frappier, and Miles Kelly
2:19-CR-155-JCM-EJY (D. Nevada)
The public is reminded that an indictment contains only charges and is not evidence of guilt. The defendants are presumed innocent and are entitled to a fair trial at which the government has the burden of proving guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
The indictment charges Rosanne Day, 51, Robert Paul Davis, 63, Genevieve Renee Frappier, 49, and Miles Kelly, 55, with one count of conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering, and multiple counts of mail fraud and wire fraud. Day and Davis were part-owners and the top managers of PacNet Services Ltd. (“PacNet”), a payment processing company based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Frappier was in charge of PacNet’s Marketing and Client Services departments. Kelly oversaw PacNet’s Compliance Department.
The indictment alleges that PacNet, under the defendants’ direction, was the payment processor of choice for companies that mailed large volumes of fraudulent notifications designed to mislead victims into falsely believing they would receive a large amount of money, a valuable prize, or specialized psychic services upon payment of a fee. From 1994 until September 22, 2016, PacNet served as the middleman between banks and the fraudulent mailers – aggregating the checks, cash, and credit card payments collected by its clients, depositing the payments into PacNet-controlled bank accounts, and then distributing the funds as directed by the clients, according to the indictment. The notifications that induced the payments processed by PacNet were false – the victims who submitted the fees did not receive a large amount of money, a valuable prize, or specialized psychic services, according to the indictment. Many alleged victims were elderly or otherwise vulnerable, according to the indictment.
