JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

A Jones County woman is wanted by several law enforcement agencies on multiple felony fraud warrants. 

Angela Brown, is responsible for a total known financial loss of $130,000 to multiple victims in Mississippi and possibly other states, according to a Central Mississippi Crime Stoppers press release. 

One of those victims is Akisa Hurst from Atlanta.

Hurst said she sent Brown $16,000 to purchase a home and a car, but after she sent money Brown stopped answering her phone calls.

Hurst said this ordeal has been a total nightmare.

“I mean it's devastating for us because you know one of the things she did was talk about the Lord and talk about church and talk about how she's in the business of blessing people,” Hurst said. “She basically led us to believe that everything that she was doing was because she had been blessed in her life and she wanted to bless other people.”

Hurst said Brown needs to be brought to justice. 

Brown is originally from Jones County, but it is believed that she now resides in Atlanta metropolitan area and she is known to travel often back and forth to Mississippi. 

According to the press release, some of her most recent addresses in Georgia were in Alpharetta, Sandy Springs and Duluth. 

Authorities said it is unknown what type of vehicle she may be driving. 

Anyone with leads to capture and arrest Brown would be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000. 

If you have information to help in this case, please call Central MS Crime Stoppers at 601-355-TIPS (8477) or submit a tip online through the Web Tip link on the home page of the Central MS Crime Stoppers website.
