A Forest Grove woman is hoping she can help prevent other women from being scammed on Facebook. Police say they think a con man saw the obituary of Kathleen Wortman's husband, then “friended” her on the social networking site. She wired up to $30,000 to him to pay his medical bills. When she cut him off, he stopped talking to her. Wortman's son has set up a Facebook page warning of the scam.
