Report: Caretaker charged with taking elderly woman's money

Posted: Updated:

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) – A woman charged with caring for an elderly woman was accused of swindling more than $9,000 from her over nearly three months in 2011.

According to Charleston County deputies, 51-year-old Dorothy Denise Shivers was charged with exploitation of a vulnerable adult this week. The report states that Shivers was a caretaker for Care For Life at the time.

The investigation into Shivers began when the elderly North Charleston victim noticed a strange charge on her bank statement, the report states.

With the help of officials at Care For Life, the victim found 21 unauthorized debit card purchases and withdrawals that totaled nearly $8,700 and a forged check for $500, the report states.

Shivers posted bail earlier this week.
