Nursing Home Employee Steals Identity And Pays for $13,000 Dental Bill

A former nursing home employee has been arrested after stealing a patient's identification. The employee's sister used a credit card in the 86-year-old victim's name to pay for a $13,000 dental bill. The elderly woman was not a patient at the dentist, nor did she have knowledge of the credit card. 

An investigation began after the credit card payment was made in the victim's name for dental work she had not received. Police believe the former employee took the woman's social security number while working at the home to apply for a credit card in her name. The sister of the former employee ultimately made the payment for the dental work. For more, read the story. ____________________________________________________________________________
