77 Year-Old Richard Rappaport Marries 26 Year-Old Israeli and She Tries Ripping Him Off For $1 Million ....

You think he learned his lesson???

A newly married 26-year-old Florida woman was arrested for allegedly trying to grift her 77-year-old husband out of $1 million.
Lin Helena Halfon attempted to cash the whopper of a cashier’s check at a Tampa bank last month, claiming she was going to use the money to buy a yacht in Miami with her businessman hubby Richard Rappaport, authorities said.
When bank employees refused, she allegedly left, but came back later that day with three checks, each for $333,333. Staffers didn’t cash the checks and called the cops.
Investigators notified Rappaport about what his wife was doing, and he said he wanted to give her the benefit of the doubt and didn’t want her to be deported to her native Israel, the Tampa Bay Times reported.
Two checks worth about $666,000 were eventually cashed by an Orlando business. Investigators got a warrant to freeze the third check.
Asked later if he felt he was the victim of fraud, Rappaport told investigators, “yes,” according to an arrest warrant affidavit.

Rappaport’s daughter, Dayna Titus, said she and other family members were left in the dark about the marriage, according to the affidavit.
“Titus believed that Halfon was ‘conning’ Rappaport due to his age,” the affidavit states.
Halfon was arrested earlier this month at Tampa International Airport.
She is facing charges of money laundering, organized fraud and exploitation of an elderly person. Her bail was set at $1 million during her first court appearance.
Halfon’s attorney, Todd Foster, said, “There’s a valid marriage between this couple and we look forward to bringing forward additional facts to bring clarity to this situation.”

There is a Chazal about how big baal tayvaniks bite the dust. Afilu oyb er iz mer vee a hindert yuhr alt the Malach comes disguised as a supermodel type intimating she wants some chibuk venishuk. But the second before he thinks he's about to get some, the Malach pulls out his sakin and shape shifts back to his original terrifying form which Tosafos in Yuma says he has eyes all over his body. There is also not much chance to put up a fight against him because Chazal add the guy is too stunned to react. And as the Satmar Ruv pointed out, it is very difficult if not impossible to win a fight against someone with eyes all over who can see from every angle, which is why even a gibor like Yaakov Avinu was stuck struggling with the Malach all night by the pachim ketanim.
