Nineteen-year-old Heather Scarbrough told police that Cain had a very convincing story that included him being the beneficiary of a large inheritance and even being the lead singer of a successful rock band.
But he also told her that he had lost his identification and needed her to write checks to make some high-end purchases, such as vehicles and a half-million dollar house.
She didn’t' have the money to write the checks, but wrote them anyway and now is being charged with attempting to obtain merchandise by fraud.
Cain had convinced her that he was going to pay her back by Monday, but authorities caught on to the scam when the realtor of the house suspected something was wrong.
Cain has a criminal history in the state of California as well as other states for fraud and writing bad checks.
