Texas woman scammed couples wishing to adopt
Thirty-four-year-old Texas resident Chrystal Rippey pleaded guilty to one count of wire fraud on September 17 and is set to be sentenced at a later date, The Topeka Capital-Journal reported.
Rippey conducted several instances of fraud. Rippey pretended to be pregnant with twins and willing to give up her unborn children. Using this guise, she contacted adoption agencies and several couples who ended up paying for her living expenses and other items, such as clothes and a new phone. After a couple of months extracting money from a couple, she would then cease all contact before seeking out another pair of hopeful would-be adopters.
