Irene Garrett of Broward County, Florida was arrested last Wednesday for allegedly attempting to defraud senior citizens by posing as a bank employee and warning them about unusual activity on their bank accounts. Garrett, 35, purportedly collected compromised credit cards from the elderly and used them to steal money from accounts, racking up thousands of dollars in shopping bills.
Garrett is facing 20 charges related to fraud, theft, illegal use of credit cards, and the exploitation of the elderly. Her bond was to be set at $60,100 during her first-appearance court session last Thursday, but she is instead being held without bond because she violated probation on a criminal traffic case. The press did not name an attorney for Garrett.
