Three withdrawals: The caretaker was the only one with house keys.
Then, the Argentinian man took advantage of the woman’s absence to get her bank card and make three withdrawals and online purchases.
The investigation began as a result of the complaint by the social worker in charge of the woman who had been the victim. After the complaint, officers verified that all the actions made in the victim’s bank card had been made during her stay in the hospital and that the only person who had access to the home was the caretaker who had a set of house keys.
Once fully identified, he was located and arrested as the alleged perpetrator of the fraud.
