Halfon had been married to Richard Rappaport for only four months.


A 26-year old Israeli woman was arrested in Florida last week following a series of attempts to cash suspicious, giant checks at area banks from her 77-year old American husband of four months.

Lin Helena Halfon is being accused of stealing $666,666 from Richard Rappaport. She surfaced on the radar of local authorities when she tried to cash a $1 million check in Rappaport’s name at a Tampa bank, claiming she was using the money to purchase a yacht. Bank employees declined to cash the check.

She later returned with three checks of $333,333 in her husband’s name, only to be rebuffed again. At that point, bank employees made copies of Halfon’s Israeli passport and identification documents for authorities.

After making this clear to authorities, an arrest warrant for Halfon was issued.
