A home health care worker in North Dakota was arrested after allegations of stealing credit cards from a vulnerable woman she was taking care of and using them for over $8,000 worth of purchases.
On June 2, the Fargo Police received notification about a possible fraud case involving a vulnerable adult and their caregiver. The alleged victim saw her credit card statement and believed a substantial amount of money was charged to her card without her consent. She reported that she suspected the woman who provides her with medical assistance was the person who made the purchases.
The 22-year-old from Fargo had access to the residence since she had been providing in-home health care to the woman.
