An illegal scheme that involved upwards of $130,000 dollars was seized by the feds. 

The investigation involved a local marine sports tour company and now, all three have now taken a plea deal. 

Luella Jao, a Senior Manager of Sales at Alupang Beach Club, her daughter-in-law Saori Jao, a reservations agent at ABC, and her son Joshua Jao were each indicted on charges of conspiracy to use means of identification in furtherance of fraud.  

Luella Jao and Joshua Jao have since admitted to the crime.

Saori Jao is scheduled to admit guilt on Friday in the District Court of Guam.

Sentencing is set for Sept. 6.

As KUAM reported, the feds uncovered the two ABC workers devised a scheme to obtain cash commission from customers who booked reservations directly with ABC and not through an independent sales agent. They would split the cash. 

The women were also accused of modifying reservations and forged signatures to pocket the money. 

The scheme occurred between January 2015 and April 2019.
