On Jan. 8, a father and daughter were taken into police custody for allegedly running a scheme that targeted elderly people in multiple California locales. The 65-year-old man and his 40-year-old daughter were each charged for 60 alleged felonies, including conspiracy, money laundering, financial elder abuse, burglary and forgery.
The father and daughter own a company called GreenWorksUS that is based out of Richmond. Prior to the indictment, sales representatives from the company would make home visits to sell 'Safeguard Tubs" and other home products for the mobility-impaired to customers whom they perceived as vulnerable. The Riverside County District Attorney's Office alleges that the sales representatives would make false claims about the way that the company's bathtubs were designed.
