A man was arrested for scamming a 90-year-old Stamford woman out of $9,000, Stamford Police said.

Luis A. Hiraldo-Fernandez, 31, of Hackensack, was picked up by members of the Stamford Department Financial Crimes Unit on a warrant connected to the scam.

Hiraldo-Fernandez is suspected in the participation of a phone scam against a 90-year-old female which defrauded her of $9,000 while posing as an acquaintance, police said.

With the joint cooperation of the Fairlawn New Jersey Police Department, Hiraldo-Fernandez was extradited to and held on a $50,000 court set bond and given a court date of April 24.

"This was an excellent job performed by Investigator Paul DeRiu, who specializes in crimes perpetrated on elderly residents of Stamford," the department said on Facebook.
