AKRON, Ohio (WOIO) - An 89-year-old woman was the victim of scammers who convinced her to enter into a contract to provide health care.
Akron detectives have signed warrants for Felicia K. Ricks, 32, and Christopher D. Carson II, 31, for theft by deception, misuse of credit card, and identity fraud.
Akron police would like to find Ricks and Carson and are asking the public for help.
The two should not be approached and the Akron Police Department is encouraging anyone who knows their whereabouts to contact the police immediately.
The scammers had promised to provide the senior with health care through DIP Home Care (Dearly Important People, INC.)
They then started misusing the victim’s credit and bank cards by making large withdraws, purchasing a vehicle, paying their own bills, and overcharging the victim for non-existent health care services.
As a result, the victim sustained a large financial loss.
