Richard Overton, the nation's oldest living World War II veteran, and his family discovered on Friday that his personal bank account had been drained.
Overton's account had been drained after someone had gotten his Social Security number and bank information, which they then used to purchase bonds.
Cousin Volma Overton declined to say how much was stolen but said it was a 'significant amount of money'.
The world's oldest person, a 117-year-old Japanese woman, has died.
Once it's gone and the caregivers go, Volma fears Overton will, too.

"Someone set up a bogus account, got his Social Security number and accessed his personal checking account", said Volma Overton, who is Overton's third cousin.
When asked his thoughts on the potential of it being someone close to the 112-year-old veteran, he said: "It'd be awful to know somebody who's been that close to him have used him like that". But after Volma checked the new balance, that deposit was the only money Richard had available in the account.
One silver lining is the account used to pay for Richard Overton's home health care has not been touched.
Volma said he and a friend would sort out this money issue. "It might help others realize how vulnerable we all are to this".
The Austin Police Department are also involved and working closely with the family.
His family would not discuss the amount of money that was taken but said it was a "considerable amount".
