SANDY -- A Sandy woman is accused of ripping off a co-worker who has the IQ of a child. Police say she lied to him in order to get his credit.

The man, who has a mental disability and the attention span of a 9-year-old, worked with the woman at a Walmart. She convinced him that they were dating and took him to jewelry stores and other places, opening lines of credit in his name.

Police say she got close to $18,000 in purchases.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports the scheme was discovered when the man's mother discovered all the lines of credit in her son's name.
