Police: Men scam elderly woman into signing checks

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - A man charged with scamming an elderly woman will be arraigned later in the day on April 28.

Walter Abney, along with Ronald Brandenburg, allegedly charged the woman for construction work that was never done.

The police report states Brandenburg and Abney talked her into only signing her name to two checks, without filling out the dollar amount. Even after the police report was made, investigators said Abney returned to the woman's house to try to get more money from her.

Police charged Abney with the exploitation of an adult, and theft by deception.
