The addition of bedbugs to Paris brings about a phenomenon. How the elderly are being cheated
The addition of bedbugs in France in general and in Paris in particular, besides the nuisance, has also brought another phenomenon. The elderly are being cheated. Desperate to rid their home of bedbugs, they are paying money.
Two men have been arrested in France after allegedly defrauding elderly people out of thousands of euros for removing bedbugs from their homes.
They went to the nursing home, pretended to see the situation and took the money in advance to buy the treatment products.
The police in a press statement said that 48 people were defrauded in total, many of them women, over 90 years old.
