SPRINGFIELD, Ore. -- Another woman is coming forward to warn others about a woman pretending to have car troubles and stealing medication after being let inside a home.

Deborah said it is part of how she was raised: You see someone in need, and you help them. Now she said she'll think twice before doing that again.

"I was also embarrassed because I thought here I am, this little old woman, you know, inviting a stranger into my home -- being trusting when I probably shouldn't have been," Deborah said.

Deborah said she stole her Klonopin, a drug she uses for anxiety, and a controlled substance she wasn't able to get refilled until the police came and she could prove it was stolen.

She said she is devastated that this woman is posing as a caregiver and targeting a specific type of person.

"That's the worst thing about what she's doing. She's taking advantage of the best characteristics of my generation."

KEZI continues to receive calls from people claiming they or their parents/grandparents were also victims.
