Sacramento woman commits over $3.2 million in EDD fraud, sentenced to 8 years in prison

A woman pleaded guilty to 10 counts of Employment Development Department fraud and was sentenced to eight years in prison this week, according to the Sacramento County District Attorney's Office. The district attorney's office said that it arrested Jamie Williams-Major in connection with a fraud scheme on April 9, 2021. The Sacramento County Sheriff's Office, the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation and EDD helped with the arrest. Investigators found "a significant amount" of EDD paperwork that contained proof of fraudulent credit cards and accounts after using a search warrant to enter Williams-Major's residence, the district attorney's office said.
