On Friday, a woman from Florida pleaded guilty to one count of wire fraud in a romance scam. She was able to live lavishly after scamming $2.8 million from an 87-year-old Holocaust survivor.

36-year-old Peaches Stergo may spend up to 20 years in prison after she receives her punishment on July 27.

Authorities say that through the scam, Stergo was able to buy a home in a gated community, acquire a Corvette, purchase vacations with stays at the Ritz-Carlton, and buy designer attire. This led to the Holocaust survivor losing their place of residence.

Stergo is said to have met the victim on a dating app back in 2017. She then began requesting money that she could borrow for a lawyer to assist with an injury settlement that included releasing those funds. The settlement wasn’t real though.

Stergo asked for money for over four years from the victim who wrote her 62 checks, totaling $2.8 million. She also made up fake bank invoices to deceive the victim.

In addition to her upcoming prison sentence, Stergo has agreed to pay back $2,830,775, and will have to give up the expensive items that she bought.

  1. Some people have no shame. No care about another person, especially the elderly. They’re sitting back laughing at what they get from these people when God knows already what’s happened. And God also has a plan for this lady. She’ll reap what she sows.

  2. After I originally commented I seem to have clicked the -Notify me

    Is there an easy method you can remove me from that service?
    Thank you!
