BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - A Billings woman has been charged in a scheme authorities say involved her helping a Nigerian man sell guns online that were never delivered.

The Billings Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1qPfBNE) 55-year-old Pamela Kay Senn appeared in Yellowstone County Justice Court Friday. Judge David Carter charged her with theft by accountability.

Charging documents say a man told Billings police in May he had paid $3,000 for a pair of Colt revolvers but hadn’t received the guns.

Police traced the emails to Senn and Internet addresses in West Africa.

Documents say Senn told police a Nigerian man had asked her to help a friend in Chicago sell guns online.



Buyers would send the money to her, and she would send the cash minus her expenses to Nigeria.

Senn appears in court again on Oct. 27.
