Just wrong preying on the elderly like this!
Florida Woman Accused Of Scamming Elderly Married Man Out Of Thousands
According to NY Daily News reports:
A woman dubbed the “Sweetheart Scammer” was collared in Florida after authorities say she conned an elderly man out of a small fortune that included a luxury car and a Rolex.
Michelle Nicholas, 46, allegedly cozied up to 82-year-old John Deam — who the Broward County Sheriff’s Office said easily falls into a confused state — so the man could take her for an extravagant trip to the Florida Keys on March 24.
Deam, who is married, showered Nicholas with pricey gifts, including a $13,000 Rolex, during their getaway, authorities said.
Soon after they returned, Deam coughed up $25,877 to buy the woman a 2006 Lexus, authorities said.
Police arrested Nicholas a short time later, after she tried to open a line of credit under Deam’s name that listed her as an additional cardholder.
Nicholas was booked on charges that included grand theft and exploitation of the elderly. She was ordered held in lieu of $30,000 bond.
Damn, whatever homegirl was offering must’ve been good for him to be coming off all this guap like that. Do you think she deserves jail time for this crime?
