His victim allegedly had her Social Security benefits compromised. Preliminary reports suggest it was in the category of wire fraud, which is popular for scamming individuals of their retirement benefits.

The man reportedly told the woman her benefits were in danger of being compromised, which tricked her into turning them over in the first place.
