Suspect poses as nurse to swindle man out of over $1,000

Posted: Updated:
GLENDALE, Ariz. -

An 87-year-old man was scammed out of over $1,000 after a woman convinced him she was his wife's nurse.  

Glendale Police say the man was approached while shopping in a Wal-Mart near Northern Avenue and Loop 101 on Feb. 18.

A woman allegedly told him she was taking care of his wife while she was in the hospital and would provide personal care for her if given a loan.

Police say the man didn't know he was being scammed and drove the woman, along with another woman and a child, to his home.

The man gave the two suspects over $1,000 in cash and his credit card number and then drove them back to Wal-Mart.

The suspects possibly left in a white Chevrolet crew cab pickup truck.

Police say the suspects spent about $2,000 on the man's credit card before the account could be closed.

The first female suspect is described as 35-to 45-years-old, 5'4" to 5'6" inches tall, 150 to 160 pounds, with brown shoulder length hair.

The second female suspect appears to be approximately 30-years-old, 5'4" to 5'6" inches tall, 130 pounds, with brown hair.

The suspect's ethnicities are unknown, but both women had medium complexions.

They also had a male child with them appearing to be 8-to 12-years-old.

If you have information, call Glendale Police 623-930-3217 or Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?
