Israeli Newly married 26-year-old woman arrested while trying to cash $1m from 77-year-old husband's account-photos
An Israeli woman who tried cashing almost $1 million in checks from her 77-year-old husband’s account, has been arrested.
26-year-old Lin Helena Halfon whose bail has been set at $1 miilion, was arrested earlier this month at Tampa International Airport.
The newly married woman who is facing charges of money laundering, organized fraud and exploitation of an elderly person, reportedly walked into a branch of Amscot to cash a $1 million check with claims of wanting to buy a yacht for her and her husband.
The police were called in after the lady whose request was declined by the bank employees, came back later in the day with three other checks each for $333,333. Halfon’s husband, 77-year-old Tampa businessman Richard Rappaport was notified by investigators about the checks the following day.
Though Halfon told investigators she mailed the checks to her sister in Israel after a fight with Rappoport, it was learnt that two checks worth about $666,000 together were cashed by an Orlando man in New Jersey few days later.
Asked later if he felt he was the victim of fraud and theft, Rappaport who initially gave his wife a benefit of doubt and didn’t want her deported to Israel said “yes”. In the arrest affidavit, Rappoport’s daughter Dayna Titus said she and other family members didn’t know about the marriage which was held in August in Sarasota.
FDLE Special Agent Victoria Morris wrote in the affidavit;
“Titus believed that Halfon was ‘conning’ Rappaport due to his age.”
Halfon’s attorney, Todd Foster said the couple had a valid marriage. He said;
“We look forward to bringing forward additional facts to bring clarity to this situation.”
