A Fort Valley woman suspected of scamming several seniors out of money is now in custody.
Bibb County Lt. Sean Defoe says says Katina Hope Wright will be charged with two felonies, two misdemeanors, and others.
Investigators said she approached senior adults, told them that she knew them from their doctor's office and needed money to fix her car.
One of Wright's alleged victims in Warner Robins is speaking out.
Barbara McMahon walked into Wal-Mart looking for bird feeders when a woman approached her.
"And she says, 'Hi Barbara, how are you?' And I looked at her and thought, 'Who is she?' I say I'm having a senior moment," says McMahon.
She says the woman asked her for money. McMahon refused to go to the bank to take money out but ended up paying for the woman's drinks, gave her cash, and her prescription pain reliever cream. It totaled over $60; it's money she has not been repaid.
McMahon says at the time, the scammer introduced herself as Jenny, who used to work at Dr. Dulla's office. Dr. Dulla is McMahon's doctor who works down the street from her house.
There have been a string of the same incidents reported. Bibb Investigators says Katina Wright is the suspected scammer targeting senior shoppers using the same tactics she used on McMahon. McMahon fell victim because she was caught off guard.
"If you had someone glued to your body like super glue and everything happening so fast. Cause I've had other friends that say, how did you do that. And I say, I know it was stupid," she says.
