A Fort Valley woman is facing multiple charges for defrauding a local elderly couple out of $2,000 in December by using a banking app.

Breonna C. Armstrong, 28, was charged with eight counts of financial identity fraud and eight counts of elder abuse, according to Fayette County Jail records.

Sheriff Barry Babb said Armstrong was not known to the couple, but was able to withdraw approximately $2,000 from an account held by the couple by using the Zelle banking app.

Babb said the incident is still being investigated.

      • Your “best friend” is black too – right? Your weekly derogatory comments about those with darker skin tones than yours gives us all a good idea what kind of person you are.

        I mean, your spew speaks for itself.

        • No Biggy Mrs. Haddocks…I have “White” friends ,too…if I “spew” it’s because of the fact that statistics are what they are…could someone quote the correct statistics for crimes and race….isn’t the whole American experience now about race and gender?
