Woman Allegedly Stole $1 Million from Elderly

Earlier this week, the Seattle Times reported another story about elder financial abuse. Brenda Nichols was charged in King County for allegedly stealing more than $1 million from an elderly Seattle woman. Nichols was charged along with two co-defendants.

She was under community supervision by the state Department of Corrections for a grand-theft conviction in California. She is also wanted in New York for an outstanding warrant for 2nd degree burglary.

Unfortunately, this is just another story of many more to come. Abuse against the elderly, by duping seniors out of their money is an ever increasing problem that we need to tackle.
