CA - Police Searching for Scammer Who Had $5K Botox But Left Without Paying

||| MyBotoxLA |||

There’s no cure for being “thick-faced”, not even a treatment of Botox.

A woman wanted to have Botox so bad but apparently didn’t have legit money for it. She got the procedure, alright, but now she’s also being sought out by authorities for grand theft for leaving the clinic where she got the treatment without paying.

Los Angeles Police Department said the incident occurred in MyBotoxLA located at 12457 Ventura Boulevard on September 25. The suspect has been wanted since then.

Yana Pechenik, a physician assistant at the medical spa, said the woman was a new client who had a consultation about their Botox services, after which they agreed on a $5,000 fee for the said procedure.

The woman presented a credit card so the clinic could hold her appointment.

Pechenik then did the procedure for nearly three hours, giving the woman Botox and filler injections.

The problem started when it was payment time. The woman didn’t fork out any money for the payment, strangely nor did she indicate to the clinic to use the credit card she has earlier presented. Instead, she made an alibi to the clinic. Pechenik said: “She said she had a friend who does jewelry and she was going to leave us a few pieces, which she had in her car. She left, and never came back.”

Worse, the clinic found out that the credit card earlier given by the woman turned out to be fake. They also learned that the name she gave, Emily Ross, was bogus as well.

Looking back, Pechenik there were already red flags even during the procedure but then she chose to ignore the signs then. For one, Pechenik said the woman kept her eyes closed during all her before and after photos which seemed a bit odd then to Pechenik.

Then there were other signs, too. The clinician said: “She said she didn’t speak a second language, and yet she had a really strong accent. She just seemed too nice, and she offered too many things that weren’t asked of her.”

Pechenik described the suspect as white and is about 45 to 50 years old. She was also wearing blue-grey contact lenses on her eyes and dental veneers on both front teeth with several missing toward the back.
