A woman named as Tulsa's Most Wanted criminal is suspected of fraud in a four-state area. Tameka Johnson is wanted by the United States Secret Service and the Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office as well, according to a release from the Tulsa Police Department.

Tameka Denise Johnson is said to be heavily involved in fraud and criminal activity.

In one instance, Johnson is charged with pretending to be a Walmart employee and stealing just over $3,000 on March 21, 2012. She tricked an actual employee at a Cushing Walmart into electronically loading $3,013.92 on Green Dot Money Paks, according to Payne County court documents.

"The Green Dot Money Pak cards can be used to load money onto other prepaid cards, can be transferred to a PayPal account or can be used to make same-day payments to companies," according to a Walmart protection officer who investigated the fraud.
