Auburn police investigate case of financial abuse of an elderly person

AUBURN, AL (WTVM) - Three suspects are accused of financial abuse of an elderly person in Auburn.

On Feb. 7, an 84-year-old woman reported she was approached by three men at her home who offered to perform concrete cleaning and sealing work in her driveway.

She and the men agreed to an amount to be paid for the service, but once the work was done, the men told her she must pay $2,000 more than the original amount they agreed upon.

The woman paid the men and her check was cashed immediately at a local bank.

The case is being investigated by Auburn police.
