United States v. Thomas Ressler

United States v. Thomas Ressler

6:18-CR-0004-SEH (D. Mont.)


Thomas Ressler has been charged with conspiring to commit mail fraud for his role in a large-scale mail fraud scam. According to charges, Ressler created fraudulent solicitation letters that his co-conspirators sent to victims throughout the United States and numerous other countries.  The letters falsely notified victims they had won a large amount of money or other valuable prize and directed the victims to send money for processing and delivery fees.  The letters purported to be from official-sounding yet fictitious entities including Cash Payout Disbursement Advisors, Progressive Winners Guarantors, and Vehicle Transport Company.  Many of the letters included the name and signature of a fictitious officer or representative of the fictitious entity.
