Best of Craigslist: Man tricks woman into changing his diapers

Tuesday, August 11, 2009

Woman duped by middle-age man who acted like a child:
Janet Schulte believed the man when he told her by phone that his 40-something, disabled brother needed a caregiver who could bottle-feed him and change his diapers.

What the Melbourne woman can't believe is that he committed no crime, now that she said she has found out the situation was a charade: that the man and his brother were same person.

"I consented to change his diapers, but I legitimately thought this man needed help," she said. "How can that not be a crime for him to come into my house and expose himself?"

The deception began, Schulte said, when she placed an ad online on offering child care services.

She said a man called and asked Schulte if she knew any special-needs caregivers.

And, she said, his story went on.

The man told Schulte that a car accident left his brother with physical disabilities, including weak arms, poor bladder control and the mental capacity of a 5-year-old.

He told her how an aunt and current caregiver had no patience. He offered Schulte $600 a week to look after his brother.

I don't see how this isn't considered some form of fraud. True, she was paid for her care giving services, but she cared for him under false pretenses.
