Investigators say Burton used her businesses, Valued Manufactured Housing and Valued Homes, to fraudulently solicit deposits and down payments on manufactured homes.

Burton is then accused of taking the money and spending it on Amazon, Turning Stone Casino and to further her scheme by paying manufacturers for homes she promised to other customers.

So far more than 40 victims have been found.

If you know anything, call the attorney general's office.
