Woman Accused Of Posing As Military Member As Part Of Scam

Law enforcement in North Carolina have arrested a woman who they they say posed as a member of the military and scammed a person out of more than $7,000. The Pitt County Sheriff's Office received a report that a resident met a woman on an online dating site who said she needed money to ship her belongings home from overseas. Investigators determined the woman was using a fake name and identified her as a 63-year-old woman from Greensburg, Pennsylvania. Multiple charges were filed against the suspect, and she was released on a $25,000 unsecured bond.
