Six years’ imprisonment, an 800 euro fine and perpetual disqualification from holding public office: this is the sentence imposed at first instance on Teresa Maria Guerra, a 60-year-old from Bari accused of being a serial fraudster of the elderly. The sentence comes more than ten years after the facts.

From July to October 2013, the woman allegedly deceived fourteen people, presenting herself as an INPS employee, a local health authority doctor or a social worker, managing to get hold of around 8,000 euros.

The investigations, coordinated by prosecutor Bruna Manganelli, indicate that Guerra, then 49 years old, he allegedly targeted elderly women who were alone or living with disabled family members, breaking into their homes to steal money. She was tried for ten episodes of aggravated theft and impersonation.

THE TEN SCAMS

The first confirmed episode dates back to 31 July 2013. Guerra, who introduced herself as “Dr. Colucci, employee of the local health authority”, allegedly entered the home of an 80-year-old woman pretending to have to carry out a document check to improve the elderly woman’s economic and personal situation. She allegedly had an envelope delivered containing 800 euros, the victim’s entire pension in cash, and, taking advantage of a moment of distraction, she replaced the envelope with an identical one containing only a photocopy of some banknotes and advertising material.
