Financial Elder Abuse Caught on Tape

In October, a trio of thieves took a senior citizen suffering from dementia from store to store and tricked her into opening up credit card accounts. Store surveillance video shows the suspect standing right next to the victim as she fills out credit applications. After the stores granted her thousands of dollars in credit, the suspects went on a spending spree. Family members say what happened in the stores ruined the victim's life "they got away with more than $10,000 worth of goods and haven't been caught," the victim's brother said.
