Recently, there has been an increase in fraudulent representations (fraud) from women claiming they want to place their child (born or unborn) for adoption.
Fraud is committed when a woman falsely represents to an individual or an adoption agency that she intends to place her baby for adoption with them in order to receive services or money. This occurs when she lies about her intentions to place the baby for adoption, uses multiple agencies, requests and uses financial assistance to purchase things not related to the pregnancy.
It is our desire to stop the fraud so we can better help birth mothers who sincerely need and desire our help. Therefore, we will prosecute women who commit this type of fraud.
