Botox Fraudster

MAY 12--A Florida woman is behind bars for allegedly defrauding a plastic surgery center out of $1250 worth of Botox treatments, investigators report.

Yolette Waldroup, 50, was arrested last week on a warrant charging her with grand theft and credit card fraud in connection with anti-wrinkle injections she received last year at Central Florida Plastic Surgery.

Police allege that Waldroup, an Orlando resident, used a fraudulent credit card to pay for the Botox and filler treatments and provided medical personnel with a fake Wisconsin driver’s license as her identification.

Waldroup paid for the injections with a credit card carrying a different name than the one on her ID. The transaction was processed by an office manager after Waldroup “explained that they are friends,” according to a police report.

Pictured above, Waldroup is being held in the Sumter County jail in lieu of $7000 bond on the felony and misdemeanor charges. She is scheduled for a June 13 arraignment hearing.

Waldroup’s rap sheet includes numerous prior arrests. At the time she allegedly received the Botox treatments, Waldroup was several months into a five-year probationary sentence for forgery, grand theft, and fraudulent use of a credit card. (1 page)
