New York Scammers Arrested for Defrauding 2 Elderly Women
New York, New York big city of schemes…
According to NYDailyNews, a woman named Tavoy Malcolm and her scammer-in-crime, Lorindo Powell, have both been arrested and face over 20 years in the bing for wire and bank fraud.
The unscrupulous couple defrauded two senior citizens, one 77 and the other 91, out of almost $600,000. The 77-year-old woman ended up losing her house after she defaulted on her bank loan because she was cutting checks to Malcolm and Powell. The scammers told her she owed money for taxes and coerced her to send them payments for nearly 10 years. The elderly woman now lives in a small rented out room.
The 91-year-old woman was also scammed via the “payment” scheme. Malcolm and Powell eventually convinced the woman to give them the rights to her credit card and ran up $10,000 at Barney’s on sneakers and luxury heels.
As an unrelated scumbag addendum, the couple was living with Malcolm’s sister who is being charged with cocaine importation and conspiracy to import cocaine.
