Michael Woodward and his wife, Melissa, have been arrested and charged with 11 felonies for collecting pre-paid annual fees on contracts for in-home senior services.
The Woodwards have been accused of scamming San Diego senior citizens out of $1.9 million dollars after not following through on the contracts. Investigators are still searching for additional victims in surrounding counties.
