Theresa Schmanek, 57, of Philadelphia, is charged with forgery, identity theft and financially exploiting a senior, said Warrington Township Police Department in a release on Tuesday, Nov. 15.
Authorities said the 87-year-old victim's family tipped them off in September that Schmanek may have been taking advantage.
Investigators said they later found evidence that Schmanek opened multiple credit cards in the victim's name without permission, then made purchases and received cash advances.
She's due back in court for a preliminary hearing on Dec. 5, state court records show.
