LOYALSOCK TOWNSHIP, LYCOMING COUNTY – WBRE is reporting A 38-year-old woman is facing charges for allegedly returning materials her client paid for and ghosting them when they wanted their money back.
According to state police, a 38-year-old woman from Williamsport was paid approximately $3,622.00 through a Residential Construction Agreement.
