SALINA, Kan. (AP) -- A Salina woman accused of being part of an online scam has an upcoming court hearing.

The Salina Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1hldYVP ) the 51-year-old woman is accused of scamming sellers on Craigslist.com out of more than $5,400 by sending fake money orders for purchases. She's scheduled for a hearing Monday in Saline County court.

Police Lt. Jim Norton says an investigation turned up at least eight victims who advertised items for sale on Craigslist.

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

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