WICHITA, Kan. (KNSS) - A 60-year-old woman living near 26th & Amidon in the northwest part of Wichita was the victim of a foreign scam.

She met someone in a Christian chat-room on-line, and over a period of time, the suspect asked her for money for an airline ticket to come visit her.

She has since been sending money monthly to that suspect; she eventually realized she was being scammed.

According to the receipts, the money is going to a phone number traced to South Africa.
