Home Health Care Provider Defrauded Elderly Woman (USA)

SYRACUSE — Syracuse police believe there may be more victims of a woman who claimed to provide home health care at residents’ homes.
Kimberly Coleen Mitchell, 40, was booked in Davis County Jail on four counts of fraud, two counts of credit card fraud and one count of elder abuse Monday following an investigation that lasted about two weeks, said Syracuse Police Lt. Tracy Jensen. She is being held without bail.
Police were called in June by the family of an 86-year-old woman after they noticed problems with her bank account.
“There were some charges on it that were unusual, so they went to the bank and grabbed the statements,” Jensen said.
That’s when they saw a check had been written to Mitchell, and the “signature on the check was not the victim’s,” Jensen said.
Police learned the family had hired Mitchell after they saw an ad placed on Care.com, where she offered her services as a home health care provider.
Jensen said the detective on the case is concerned other people may have been victimized by Mitchell.
Police are still investigating and the Davis County Attorney’s Office is reviewing the case before filing formal charges in 2nd District Court.
If anyone has any information about Mitchell, they can call police at 801-825-4400.
