St. Louis-area health care worker admits fraud, ID theft

AP reports:

Sentencing is scheduled for this summer for a Missouri home health care worker who admitted in federal court that she defrauded senior citizens.

Twenty-seven-year-old De’Janay Noldon pleaded guilty Monday in St. Louis to one count each of mail fraud and identity theft.

Federal prosecutors say that while working early last year as a certified nurse’s assistant caregiver at a Webster Groves provider of home health care for the elderly, Nolden victimized 13 elderly people and six financial institutions, creating a loss of roughly $30,000.

Noldon has been indicted in December. At the time, the Department of Justice press release    explained:

 De’Janay Noldon was indicted for a scheme to defraud three elderly victims of more than $30,000.

According to the indictment, Noldon was employed as a certified nurse’s assistant caregiver with SHC, a senior home health care company located in the Eastern District of Missouri. Noldon was assigned to provide in-home care to one of the victims during the period of her employment with SHC.

Noldon assumed the identity of one victim to obtain a credit card and used two other credit cards belonging to the same victim to make numerous personal purchases, obtain cash advances and pay bills. Noldon also accessed bank accounts belonging to all three of the victims.

Noldon, St. Louis County, was indicted by a federal grand jury late Thursday on multiple charges that include mail fraud, bank fraud, identity theft and social security fraud.
