An Augusta woman who sent money to Canada while seeking a loan was apparently defrauded, according to a report from the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office.

Rosalyn Young, 29, said she was trying to get a $5,000 loan from a company called Winford Solution. She said she was told to send the first and last payments to a man named Andrew Charles in Canada, and the money would be put in her checking account, the report says.

Young wired $155 on Tuesday and $164 on Wednesday to Charles. The money was not deposited in her account. She also told the sheriff’s office that Winford Solution, based in St. Louis, is apparently not a real company, according tot he report.
