Police: Woman Conned Trying to Buy Dog
Woman pays but doesn't receive pet and is asked for more money, police say.
An Upper Milford Township woman is hoping that -- like cats -- this dog story will have more than one life.
Katarzyna Slodkowska of 6302 Sweetwood Drive wanted to purchase a dog, according to state police at Fogelsville. She was told May 28 by an unidentified person to send money via Western Union to a third party in order to complete the purchase.
After receiving the full amount, the person contacted Slodkowska on May 30 and said she would have to send more money to complete the transaction, police said. Slodkowska asked for her money back, but none was received. Police did not specify the amount paid or the additional figure requested.
Police are investigating the complaint as theft by deception and said their investigation is continuing.
