LETTER: Trespassers took advantage of an injured Port senior citizen

To Ozaukee Press:

As a senior, I was a victim of a cruel scam.

I had fallen and broken a bone in my back. After six weeks of rehabilitation, I was able to come home. About an hour after I entered the house, two women I didn’t know came in uninvited, laughing and talking loud. One said, “Let’s snoop,” and they did, upstairs and downstairs. When I asked them what they wanted, they said nothing and left.

I have a walk-out basement, and the next day I heard noises, and the two women were there. I asked them what they were doing, and one said “just moving some stuff.” The leader was helping the other person move into my house without my permission.

When I got well enough to walk downstairs, the woman who moved in was there. I told her I was calling the police. She said she would be out in a few weeks.

After she finally was gone, I learned that she had changed her mailing address to mine without my consent.

I called the county office on aging, and they offered the help of a social worker. I should have called sooner.

I was a victim of trespassing and elder abuse.
