BEDFORD, OH (WOIO) -

Cuyahoga County Prosecutors say two men and a woman swindled senior citizens out of thousands of dollars at busy shopping centers again and again.

Finally, the scam ended when an alert store employee obtained a license plate and got Bedford Police on the case.

The con games start with money supposedly found.

The suspects sweet talk victims then force them or convince them to take large amounts of money out of their bank accounts.

The break came when a store employee saw an old woman talking to two people in the parking lot then getting in a car with them. The worker followed the car.

Now charges in 8 different cases are against Connie Williams,  Kirby Wadell and Theodore Alexander. Some cases dating back to 2010.

19 Action News went looking for the suspects, but no had no luck.
