Md. Woman Charged With Theft Linked To Online Love

FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — The Frederick County Sheriff’s Office says a property manager embezzled $137,000 from a homeowners association and wired at least some of the money to an online love interest in South Africa.

Nancy Walker, 62, of Boonsboro was charged Thursday in a criminal summons.

The alleged victim is the Ballenger Creek Meadows Homeowners Association near Frederick.

Walker couldn’t be reached immediately for comment. Her home phone has been disconnected, and court records don’t list a defense attorney.

Cpl. Jennifer Bailey told The Frederick News-Post that Walker was romantically involved with a man she met on the Internet but never saw in person.

Bailey says Walker was the subdivision’s property manager for 15 years, but only started stealing the money in November.

    How are you going to steal 137000 in three months and not expect to get caught…. maybe her new bf can be her prison penpal!

    It’s a shame a woman with 15 years the head of an organization and respect of people in the community can be so stupid as to fall for a scam on line. Really?

    Could you have been this desperate for love? I feel sorry for her.
