A Surrey woman is facing child sex charges in the U.S. after allegedly having online conversations with a man she believed was a dad-of-two, and planning the molestation of his children.

The man was actually a federal agent.

According to the CBC, Theresa Louise Goddard, 45, was arrested June 26 when she arrived at Dulles International Airport in Washington, D.C.

The investigation by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security began after an Internet ad was posted by someone with the handle "pervstepmom." The woman allegedly said she "wanted to become a stepmom to an incest family" and began corresponding with the man, who she thought had a nine-year-old son and a 10-year-old daughter.

Goddard has been charged with coercion of a minor, a felony offence. She is being held in custody in Virginia.
