Granddaughter Uses Smartphone App To Steal From Grandmother

A 23-year-old woman is accused of using a smartphone banking app to transfer $2,400 from her grandmother's banking account into her own.

The two separate banking accounts were linked because the 72-year-old victim had opened her granddaughter's account for her. Nicole Gangarossa, the alleged thief, downloaded the online banking app on her phone and it showed her that her account was linked to her grandmother’s.

Gangarossa began transferring over money in increments, due to her alleged drug use. She later told deputies that she opened a credit card for $8,000 in her grandmother's names. Gangarossa was arrested and is charged with fraud.
