The authorities have arrested a suspect who they allege was part of an identity theft ploy. They believe that the accused used the information, which was taken from an elderly man, to make over $50,000 in purchases.

The caregiver of an 80-year-old man who has dementia reportedly got a couple of bills in the mail in the name of the man for whom she works stating that he owed a dental clinic several thousands of dollars for work that he never had done.

After an investigation into the claims was opened, it was reportedly discovered that someone had used the victim’s personal information at the Friedman Dental Group to open a credit account. The person then had over $41,000 in dental procedures done, including a new set of implants to replace the teeth that had rotted in his mouth.

A Florida couple has been accused of failing to seek needed dental attention for their daughter, and refusing to accept outreach offered to assist them in obtaining the treatment. Reports indicated that the parents neglected the child’s needs for close to two years before they were arrested.

When the young girl, whose age has been withheld, began the school year in August 2016 it was noticed that she had several rotten teeth causing her issues. The child complained to teachers about pain, and it was said that she was only able to eat soft foods.

Concerns about her oral health caused a school social worker to contact her parents and offer assistance in getting the child the care she needed. Medical permission slips granting consent for free dental work were sent home with the girl for signature, but her parents allegedly never returned them.
