BYRON, Minn. (KTTC) -- A Byron woman finds herself in the center of a money scam on a popular dating website.
According to the Olmsted County Sheriff's Office, a man from Minneapolis contacted Rochester police after someone used his credit card to buy 48 roses from a Rochester florist.
Investigators found that those flowers had been sent to a 56-year-old woman in Byron.
The woman said she contacted the Olmsted County Sheriff's Office after a man she was communicating with through match.com asked her to wire $12,000 to an off-shore account.
The man had claimed to work in Alaska, but the sheriff's office said his story was made up.
