SALINA, Kan. (AP) -- A Salina woman is accused of scamming sellers on Craigslist by sending fake money orders for purchases.

The Salina Journal (http://bit.ly/1fYbo9d ) reports the 51-year-old woman was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of multiple felonies.

Police Lt. Jim Norton says an investigation turned up at least eight victims with total losses of more than $5,000.

The victims had advertised items for sale on Craigslist, including a guitar, silverware set, an electric dryer and a set of animal traps.

Norton says investigators seized a stack of fake Western Union MoneyGrams made out for $975 each from the suspect's apartment.

Authorities believe the woman would send the seller a fake MoneyGrams and then make calls seeking repayment by claiming an assistant had sent the wrong one. The victims wired back money.
