A 29-year-old Hamilton woman alleged to have used her elderly victim's eftpos card 279 times has been denied bail.

Kelly Louise Cloke is accused of using the card for a massive spendup of $87,433.10 on everything from a new car, to hotel rooms, clothing and gambling.

Cloke faces 43 charges of using a document for pecuniary advantage between May and July this year.

Cloke is alleged to have lied to the victim - who is believed to be in his 80s - and told him that she was his neighbour. She is then accused of taking the man grocery shopping and noticing his Pin number before stealing the card from his house.

Cloke applied for bail in the Hamilton District Court yesterday, but was declined by Judge Noel Cocurullo.

Cloke was remanded in custody without plea for a psychiatric report to reappear later this month. belinda.feek@fairfaxmedia.co.nz
