KCTV5 News is unraveling an international scam involving our viewers after tracking down victims across the nation in a complicated romance scheme that involved an Overland Park nurse.
I don’t just know a small area of downtown, I know it all.
And if you want to stroll through a few metro area towns and the country as well, we can do that too. When it comes to stuff that most women don’t like to do, we are more than willing to.
I am completely content with driving down dirt roads and camping out at the lake, but I will also be stoked to spend time in the city walking through town and socializing.
You won’t ever miss out on anything in life, which is awesome.
Martin says Mark ran into trouble she eventually sent him more than $70,000 of her life savings before she realized it was a scam.“Dear God, I feel so stupid,” Martin said.
KCTV5 followed the money trail and found a web of victims including a widow in Atlanta who was told the same story.
We traced the money to a woman in Arizona named Deb who acted as a “money mule.” Her international boyfriend told her the same story but told her he needed her help to pay bills.“I've got cash coming in, but I need to deposit it in an account in the states and have someone acting as an agent and pay my bills. Deb says she received more than 0,000 of Ann’s money and sent it all around the word, mostly South Africa.
Local investigators on the trail Overland Park Detective Lance Jordan is sorting through a complicated web of finances.“There is an intricate network, often times there are different accounts and different methods of sending money,” Jordan said.
He immediately recognized the hospital photo sent to Martin. Mark explained he had quadruple bypass heart surgery. All of the widows confirm Mark is not the voice they heard on the phone.
Most of the photos show his loving wife at his bedside. Widows are the target KCTV5 discovered widows are being targeted, probably because many of them are older, trusting and have nest eggs.
We are typically down for just about any and every adventure, no matter where we need to go.
