Man Dupes Florida Woman Into Changing His Diapers For Three Months - Prosecutors Refuse To Press Charges

Melbourne, Florida (The Weekly Vice) - Janet Schulte, a Melbourne, Florida woman has filed a complaint with Florida authorities claiming she was duped into changing an adult male's diapers for three months believing he was mentally disabled. She later discovered he didn't have a disability at all.

"I consented to change his diapers, but I legitimately thought this man needed help," said Schulte. "How can that not be a crime for him to come into my house and expose himself?"

According to Schulte, the ruse began when she placed an ad on Craigslist offering child care services. That's when a man reportedly called, asking if she knew any special needs caregivers.

Schulte says the man explained that her brother had been injured in a car accident and suffered from physical and mental disabilities - including weak arms, bladder control problems and the mental capacity of a child. He then reportedly offered her $600 a month to care for his brother.

Schulte told the Brevard County Sheriff's office she cared for the man for three months - changing his diapers, massaging his head and bottle feeding him at her home.

She later discovered the man and brother were the same person after her husband became suspicious and followed him away from their home where he was seen getting into a vehicle and driving away.

Schulte took her complaint to Brevard County deputies who took the case to prosecutors. Prosecutors refused to pursue charges, saying Schulte was paid for services she agreed to provide.

When deputies questioned the man, he reportedly admitted to the scam but claimed he was suffering from post-traumatic stress syndrome.

Note: The man in the photo is not subject in the story. He's just an idiot foolish enough to put a picture like this out on the internet.

Let me get this straight.
She believed that he had suffered from physical and mental disabilities - including weak arms, bladder control problems and the mental capacity of a child yet he's allowed to walk alone to her house to have his diaper changed.

Now Janet... nothing about that seemed suspicious to you???

Now your name is posted on the internet so every huckster in the world will know how naive you are and will beat a path to your door.

Hey Janet! This is a stick-up! Mail me your wallet.
(Aw come on... it was worth a try)

Tell me more about this post-traumatic stress syndrome. Did this come from watching to many war movies?

Post-traumatic stress syndrome! Clearly the unnamed perpetrator of this hoax thinks the investigators are as naive as Janet.

If I were her, never, ever, ever, would I let this get public. Ida had it with "mail me your wallet" too funny. She should get into the business of fetishes. Obviously there is a market. Hard times...
