Sorry to hear about that, what a nightmare.
The woman probably spent the money and forgot or put it somewhere else instead, and immediately accused you because she was in a panic.
Perhaps the woman is so loaded because she pulls this scam everytime someone comes to her house.

There are some real scammers out there. Cleverest I heard from back in the day was the old break down scam. Before mobiles, a scammer would "break down" outside someones house. After spending a while with the bonnet up scratching their head, they would knock on the nearest door, and ask to use the phone to make a quick call to a mate.
Phone call gets made "Brian, it's me, I'm broken down at <wherever>, can you come and help?" 2 minute phone call, tops. 15 mins later, Brian arrives, fixes car, all drive off.
Problem is, "Brian's" phone number wasn't any old number, it was a premium rate phone number which they had set up at £silly per minute.
And the cleverest part, the phone owner gave permission for the person to use the phone, so legally a very grey area to get any come-uppance.
Keep your eyes peeled fella, they're all out there.

Good god, things have to be bad to consider wearing that everytime you go near a customer or their house!
