Nursing Home Employee Guilty of Stealing Resident's ID for Fraud

An employee of a senior center in Alabama has been sentenced to four years in prison for stealing the identity of a resident at the center and using it to steal over $300,000 from bank and credit accounts.

From October 2011 through February 2014 the employee carried out a scheme to defraud the resident's credit union account without the victim's authorization. She used the victim’s credit cards to charge thousands of dollars for expenses that "included financing her own wedding, applying money to someone’s prison account, making car and private school tuition payments, and taking trips."

"[she used] the identity of a resident with dementia to steal more than $300,000 from the resident’s bank and credit accounts."
