Punta Gorda Police have accused someone of exploiting an eldery woman and fraudulently using her credit card.

Police say the daughter of the 87-year-old dementia patient found $1,600 in unauthorized transactions on two accounts.

Helping Hands of Southwest Florida had employed Abby Resilus at the time.

The investigation alleges, among other things, that Resilus used the patient’s card to buy tickets to Jamaica.
