Dominican Travel Agent in NYC Ticket Scam
NEW YORK - (AP) -- Authorities say a Bronx woman who worked as a freelance travel agent has been indicted for a scheme that targeted her fellow Dominican immigrants.

The Manhattan district attorney's office says Cecilia Suarez is accused of charging victims for a round-trip flight to the Dominican Republic, but only giving them one-way tickets or not giving them tickets at all.

Authorities say there are more than 30 victims and the fraud took place between January and September 2012.

District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. says some families were stranded in the Dominican Republic for weeks.

The indictment was announced Wednesday. The 54-year-old Suarez faces charges including grand larceny, identity theft and scheming to defraud. A telephone number for her could not be found, and it was unclear who her attorney is.
