Westbrook Police Looking Into Alleged Adoption Fraud

Westbrook Police Chief William Baker said the
pregnant women had promised multiple couples the adoptive rights to their babies
over the past several months. Each woman allegedly received more than $20,000
from those couples and the agencies that represented them, without intending to
make good on their promises. The number of couples victimized in these cases
could be more than a dozen, Baker said. "I'm aware of various other kinds of
adoption fraud, including those that involve international agencies," the chief
said. "But this particular type of scam, I have not seen before."
