ST. LOUIS A woman from Greece is facing federal indictment for an alleged scheme that cost American banks nearly $2 million.
The U.S. Attorney’s office in St. Louis on Thursday announced the indictment of 59-year-old Dora Argyropoulos of Athens. She was arrested Nov. 9 in Miami as she entered the U.S. She is charged with wire fraud and conspiracy.
