OKLAHOMA CITY -

A woman who's been running from New York authorities for six years is in the Oklahoma County Jail Tuesday night.

Queens County authorities say Natasha Marks is in her mid-20s. They've been looking for her since she skipped bail in 2007.

In 2006, investigators say Marks bilked an 85-year-old man out of more than $850,000 by pretending to be romantically interested in the man. Instead, investigators say she emptied his bank accounts.

Sgt. Evelyn MacDougall of the Queens County District Attorney's office says that poor 85-year-old man wasn't Marks' only victim.

The scam is called the "Sweetheart Swindle." A lot of times they leave their victims devastated and without any money, no money to pay for living expenses or medical bills.

Marks will head back to New York Wednesday in handcuffs. She'll be going directly to prison.
