Louisville woman faces federal fraud

A Winston County woman has pleaded not guilty to a two-count federal indictment in which she is accused of forging identification documents to assist with the cashing of a federal government check mailed to someone else.

Federal court records have Brenda Nunn, 27, of Louisville scheduled for trial Jan. 13 in U.S. District Court in Oxford. Nunn was indicted Nov. 20.

The indictment says two women contacted Nunn about working together to cash a check and split the proceeds.

Court documents show the check was for $7,747 and arrived at one of the women’s home. It was made out to a woman who no longer lived at the address.

The indictment says Nunn contacted a check cashing company to vouch for the identification and the woman cashed the check.
