(Scroll down for video) A woman was arrested after she came up with an elaborate scheme to scam men out of money by faking pregnancies.
Bethany Good of Minnesota, has a history of faking pregnancies to blackmail men.
According to a restraining order filed in Scott County, Good pretended to be pregnant after meeting the men in an attempt to extort money from them.
Good, 35, met men online and went to live with them. After sleeping with the men, she would claim to be pregnant and then harass them for money.
One of the men filed a restraining order against Good after she continued to harass him. She was later arrested for violating the restraining order.
She was ordered to report to jail for violating the restraining order. Good told the court she was pregnant with twins and she didn’t show up to serve her sentence.
A warrant was issued for her arrest, but it was quashed after Good produced a birth certificate as proof that she gave birth to twins.
It was later discovered that she gave false information to the health department to get the birth certificate for the imaginary twins.
Good faces charges of aggravated forgery and false statement in a birth registration.
