Elder financial abuse thwarted by alert bank teller

A teller at the Bank of Sierra is a hero after preventing 25-year-old James Beckelman-Ibarra from stealing $80,000 from an elderly Tulare County woman.

Beckelman-Ibarra had promised the 82-year-old woman in the summer of 2014 that she would receive $8,000 for the remainder of her life if she invested the $80,000 with him upfront. When he drove the woman to her bank, the teller, who had known the woman for several years, asked Beckelman-Ibarra to produce photo ID and a business card, neither of which he had in his possession. When Beckelman-Ibarra attempt to leave, the teller contacted the Tulare County Sheriff’s Department, whose deputies arrested him.

James Beckelman-Ibarra was found guilty of attempting to deceive the woman and received a 280 day jail sentence, four-year suspended prison sentence and five years of felony probation.
