A Federal Way woman is facing theft and perjury charges on allegations that she bilked a man out of thousands of dollars after faking her own pregnancy.
"Johnsen knew that she was not pregnant, yet did not inform (him) of this," Federal Way Detective Scholl said in court documents. "Instead she told him that she had a history of high risk pregnancies and miscarriages and needed to be on bed rest with this pregnancy."
Believing her to be telling the truth, the man began paying her $700 a month to support her non-existent child. In total, he paid her $3,500 in child support before the fraud was discovered in July 2009 http://www.seattlepi.com/local/425438_baby20.html
