An elderly Boston woman, whose name has not been released, and her beloved tabby named Puddy Cat, are out $450,000 in cash and property after making the wrong kind of friends.
WBZ-TV reports 63 year old Randi Berkowitz and 58 year old Patricia DiGiacomo are charged with more than 60 counts of embezzlement, larceny and intimidation after they cleaned the 74-year-old woman and her cat completely out.
“By the time the Suffolk County District Attorney’s office began their investigation, the victim had $2.16 in her Fidelity account.”
