It may seem unfathomable but a con artist in Kansas City is alleged to have been preying on the vulnerability of couples who are hoping to adopt a child. This woman is accused of masquerading as a pregnant woman to swindle the unsuspecting couples out of their money while giving them the false hope that they would adopt her unborn child. Thanks to a police investigation as well as a CBS investigative team the con artist was apprehended. Unfortunately, it is believed that as many as 10 couples fell prey to this unscrupulous individual before she was arrested. If you are thinking about adopting, talk to Annemarie Schreiber, Esquire in the CLDDS offices before paying any money to an adoption agent, or anyone involved in the adoption process.
