OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - An Omaha man says his former girlfriend bilked him out of $125,000 - and now she won’t return his phone calls.

The 59-year-old man filed a complaint with the Omaha Police Department earlier this month, about a year after he discovered discrepancies in checks that he wrote to his ex-girlfriend.

The man tells police that he wrote two checks, one for $6,000 and another for $6,500, as gifts to a Council Bluffs woman he met at a bar and sporadically dated. He says he later discovered that the check amounts had been changed to $60,000 and $65,000, but that the woman promised to pay him back.

According to the police report, the woman has since blocked her phone number and he doesn’t know her address.
