Estate Agent stole $15,000 from deaf uncle and spent it in pubs, hotels and casino

  • A woman swindled $15,000 from her deaf uncle and blew the cash gambling at pubs, hotels and a casino.

Serena Jayne Adamson’s uncle asked her for help in letting his Christchurch home when he decided to move to Australia in 2012.

He gave Adamson, 35, access and authority to his bank account, according to a new court judgment released last week.
