San Pedro police are looking for a woman after she reportedly scammed a man out of $1900.00, while using his girlfriend’s name to do so. 18 year old Kendra Mejia made the report to police saying that her female friend received two separate money transfers via Western Union.
Those monies were sent for Mejia from her boyfriend. When the boyfriend asked Mejia if she had received the money, she knew nothing about it.
She later found out that her female friend had called Mejia’s boyfriend and told him that Mejia needed money but could not call him personally because her phone was broken.
The boyfriend then wired two separate transfers of $950 each which the friend collected unbeknownst to Mejia. Police are now looking for the female suspect.
