          Surrogate Mother Convicted for Scamming Couple out of Thousands with Fake Pregnancy

          March 16, 2016

          Audrey made headlines and landed behind bars for running a surrogacy scam, by pretending to be pregnant and conning couples out of thousands of dollars. The 36-year-old mother of four was convicted of two charges of theft, one charge of identity theft and two charges of using a computer to commit a crime.
          Now, on Dr. Phil’s stage, she comes face to face with one of the couples, Peter and Cheniya, who say Audrey not only stole their money, but shattered their dreams of parenthood.  Hear how they say they reacted when they learned there was no baby.
          And, with Audrey sentenced to 20 days in jail, two years of probation and ordered to pay $10,500 in restitution to the victims, Peter and Cheniya say they believe she only got a slap on the wrist. Hear why they say the punishment doesn’t fit the crime. How does Audrey respond? Tune in to this emotional Dr. Phil.
