Leonard Ansill, a 77-year-old resident of Jupiter Farms, Fla., has become the latest senior citizen accused of swindling investors in a Ponzi scheme — this one of the real-estate variety.

Ansill’s booking sheet at the jail shows he is being held on seven criminal charges, including multiple counts of grand larceny.

One of his alleged victims is a 79-year-old widower and part-time Florida resident who entrusted at least part of his late wife’s trust fund to the accused scammer, the Sun Sentinel is reporting.

The victim described Ansill as a “relatively miserable character,” the paper reported.

Ansill’s scam allegedly fetched about $1.12 million, the newspaper reported.
