Con man defrauds sympathetic elderly man out of $400,000
DENVER -- He said he had no family and no money. He said he needed help paying for diabetes treatments. He said he needed help paying taxes. He said it was just a loan that would be reimbursed in full. Akihiko Siegfried, 54, admitted to as much during his mail fraud and money laundering trail Monday. Siegfried pled guilty to both charges and admitted he conned an elderly man out of $400,000.
