Septic FRAUD!

An elderly woman was recently scammed out of $30,000 in Dewey, Arizona, after a man claimed he’d replaced her entire septic system while she was on a weeklong vacation.

The suspect was arrested in Flagstaff on suspicion of fraud and theft. He had showed up at the woman’s door and informed her that while she was gone he replaced her septic system and her bill was $67,000.

In a panic, the woman went to the bank and withdrew $12,500 in cash for the man. Two men came back the next day and she wrote them a check and authorized it for $17,500.

Her septic system hadn’t even been replaced.
