CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Federal prosecutors say three people bilked $3.7 million from investors by claiming to develop wind farms in Wyoming and South Dakota. The projects never were built.
A federal indictment filed in Cheyenne says phone solicitors made cold calls to investors nationwide, telling them the wind farms were being built by a private firm and the U.S. government.
