Piedmonters are alerted to be aware of caregiver activities.


On June 5, 2017, the crime of Elder Fraud was committed within the City of Piedmont. The suspect, who was the victim’s caregiver for the past five months, persuaded the victim to write three checks to her in the total amount of $4,530.00. This was done against the victim’s will.
Extensive investigative follow-up, combined with evidence recovered from the victim’s bank account, led to the arrest of Dorgima Bambushew.

She was charged by the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office with three counts of Elder Fraud and one count of Burglary.

Bambushew is currently in custody awaiting further prosecution.
