An Israeli lady who had a go at trading nearly $1 million in for money checks from her 77-year-old spouse’s record, has been captured.
26-year-old Lin Helena Halfon whose bail has been set at $1 miilion, was captured not long ago at Tampa International Airport.
The recently hitched lady who is dealing with indictments of illegal tax avoidance, composed extortion and abuse of an older individual, apparently strolled into a part of Amscot to money a $1 million check with cases of needing to purchase a yacht for her and her better half.
The police were brought in after the woman whose solicitation was declined by the bank representatives, returned later in the day with three different checks each for $333,333. Halfon’s significant other, 77-year-old Tampa agent Richard Rappaport was informed by examiners about the checks the next day.
Despite the fact that Halfon advised examiners she sent the checks to her sister in Israel after a battle with Rappoport, it was found out that two checks worth about $666,000 together were gotten the money for by an Orlando man in New Jersey barely any days after the fact.
Inquired as to whether he believed he was the casualty of extortion and burglary, Rappaport who at first gave his significant other an advantage of uncertainty and didn’t need her extradited to Israel said “yes”. In the capture oath, Rappoport’s little girl Dayna Titus said she and other relatives didn’t think about the marriage which was held in August in Sarasota.
FDLE Special Agent Victoria Morris wrote in the testimony;
“Titus accepted that Halfon was ‘conning’ Rappaport because of his age.”
Halfon’s lawyer, Todd Foster said the couple had a substantial marriage. He said;
“We anticipate presenting extra realities to carry clearness to this circumstance.”
