Bizarre fraud case investigated
Comanche County Sheriff's Office detectives are investigating a man's claims that his wife cheated him out of tens of thousands of dollars by taking donations for a fake company she claimed helped American firefighters and that she lied about multiple pregnancies over the last several years.
A bench warrant was issued for the woman's arrest Friday, one day after she filed for an emergency protective order against her husband, 51. The order was denied and court records show a local judge issued a warrant for the woman, saying she was not truthful in her sworn statement.
The couple had been living as man and wife west of Lawton for several years. The woman claimed she worked for "Cal-Fire Angels of Mercy" and was "fighting fires in America and other countries around the globe," an incident report said. Her husband was reportedly introduced to his wife over the Internet by another woman, who his wife said was later killed while fighting a fire in Australia. There is no documented proof of the woman's death, yet the couple supposedly had an urn at their home containing her ashes, according to the Sheriff's Department.
Soon after their marriage, the man's wife told him she was pregnant and was having twins, but she refused to allow him to accompany her to doctor's appointments. The man gave his wife thousands of dollars for tests and spent even more on baby items, which he purchased in pairs.
The report said the man's wife went to McKinney, Texas, where she told him the twins died in childbirth in February 2008. Investigators say there are no records of the births, deaths or of their alleged cremation; yet, again, two urns were placed on the mantle of their home. The man later discovered that they were filled with flour, according to the sheriff's office.
Prior to the "deaths," the man said he had donated over $30,000 to Cal-Fire Angels of Mercy in separate transactions, donations that were supposed to be in care of his wife. She had told him the money was for widows and families of deceased firefighters. The man even said he performed recruiting work for the company and was never paid.
