Israeli National Arrested for Defrauding 77-Year Old Husband in Bogus Check Scheme

Halfon had been married to Richard Rappaport for only four months.

A 26-year old Israeli woman was arrested in Florida last week following a series of attempts to cash suspicious, giant checks at area banks from her 77-year old American husband of four months.

Lin Helena Halfon is being accused of stealing $666,666 from Richard Rappaport. She surfaced on the radar of local authorities when she tried to cash a $1 million check in Rappaport’s name at a Tampa bank, claiming she was using the money to purchase a yacht. Bank employees declined to cash the check.

She later returned with three checks of $333,333 in her husband’s name, only to be rebuffed again. At that point, bank employees made copies of Halfon’s Israeli passport and identification documents for authorities.

Halfon would go on to cash two of the checks at another bank week later. Her senior citizen husband apparently was reluctant to admit that his half-century younger wife was conning him, but after the checks were cashed, he realized that he was the victim of fraud. After making this clear to authorities, an arrest warrant for Halfon was issued.

Rappaport’s daughter was apparently instrumental in preventing her father from being abused further. It’s likely the “marriage” between Rappaport and Halfon was a sham the beginning, a gambit for the trickster to pocket money from the senior citizen. Marriages for sham financial and immigration purposes are relatively common.

Halfon is being charged with money laundering, exploitation of a elderly person, and organized fraud, with bail being set at $1 million. It’s unclear if she’s obtained American citizenship from her sham marriage to Rappaport, but the short length of her marriage makes that unlikely. She’s likely to be deported to Israel when her criminal case is adjudicated.

NEW: Joe Biden Bashes Incoming Trump Administration In Leaked 2016 Call to President of Ukraine

Completely inappropriate.

Published

on

Joe Biden speaks in critical and partisan terms of the incoming Trump administration in a new leaked call to the President of Ukraine unveiled Wednesday.

In the call, conducted in November 2016 a week after then-candidate Trump’s election victory, Biden bashes the incoming administration to the foreign leader, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko. Biden assails the Trump transition team as incompetent, turning down the idea of visiting the country before the January transition before Trump is “fully briefed” on matters related to Ukraine.

In a second call, Biden asks for Poroshenko to describe his conversations with incoming President Trump, going to to speak of Trump in more dismissive terms. He describes Trump as a “dog who caught the car, and who doesn’t know what to do.” Not quite a “dog-faced pony soldier,” but definitely not an appropriate way for an outgoing vice president to describe an incoming president to a foreign leader.

A Ukrainian comedian originally released the calls, suggesting questionable operational security within the conversations of Joe Biden and Poroshenko. Biden has a lengthy history of ethical questions regarding his relationship with Ukraine, including looking the other way as his son Hunter secured an extremely lucrative position at a Ukrainian oil company without any experience whatsoever in the energy industry.

Biden himself would later go on to demand the firing of a Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating corruption allegations against the younger Biden, a clear conflict of interest Biden merely dismissed when he spoke openly of securing the prosecutor’s firing at a Council on Foreign Relations public event.

This is a totally inappropriate way for a Vice President to speak to a foreign leader, and the public should be concerned about how Biden plans to conduct diplomacy should he be elected President.
