Family members of Richard Overton, the 112-year-old World War II veteran who lives in Austin, learned that his personal bank account had been drained on Friday. He now has a new distinction: the oldest American to be robbed of his savings, reports Newsweek.
Richard Overton, 112-years-old, the 3rd oldest man on the planet, the oldest male in the United States, and the oldest military veteran. "I don't know how they got his Social Security number and his personal checking account number but those things they have", he tells KXAN.
"We were broken hearted and lost just thinking about it like how can someone do Richard like this", said Volma. The alleged thief reportedly made several savings bond purchases through Treasury Direct using Overton's account until there was no money left.
Cousin Volma Overton declined to say how much was stolen but said it was a 'significant amount of money'.
His family said the money from the online fundraising page is intact in a separate bank account.
The incident did not affect a GoFundMe crowdfunding page that the family created in 2016 to provide round-the-clock care for Overton so that he can live at home, according to the American-Statesman. Once it's gone and the caregivers go, Volma fears Overton will, too. As of Saturday afternoon, that account has raised more than $370,000.
