Is there anything I can do now that grams has passed?

My grandmother's boyfriend basically stole all of her money. Around the tune of $600k. I assume she was told he would helo her etc and that's how this happened. She recently passed and we got her account info that beyond doesn't add up. Found out that they had joint accounts and there was $600k in two accounts. My mother and uncles did nothing. She passed on 4/28. I can't imagine that this is just now going to be brushed away. I spoke with his family and found out that basically he is a male black widow. My grandmother wasn't his first victim. Is there any recourse that I may be able to take? Help....this was my best friend, my world. I can't imagine someone who "loved" her would do this.

Daisy, that evidence from family members is hearsay unless you personally witnessed and/or saw documentation of the black widower's actions. Police would in fact have to document it by interviewing the family, and if they don't support your contention, the police probably wouldn't have legitimate reason to pursue a case.

What evidence do you have that he's a male black widow? If you've got solid evidence, you might want to ask the local police about it, especially if you've found evidence he's done this in the past. If there's a pattern, and he's enriched himself unjustly, there might be a possible fraud and/or intent to commit fraud charge that could be made by good police work and investigation.

Thanks for your answer. I figured the joint account issue would end it immediatly. Unfortunatly my mother and uncles (her children) were too foolish to listen to me and they were more interested in her stocks and property. I solely cared for my grams as an invalid for 7 months. Her kids were not so great ro be honest. Anywho exactly as I thought in the end..... ;(

If they did indeed have joint accounts and that was all the money she had, I'm afraid you're out of luck. Since it is such a sizeable amount, I'm pretty sure her children would have acted aggressively to confirm how these accounts were held. And you present it here as fact that the money was held jointly.

If she had money in her own name alone, believe me there is no way he could have gotten it. Banks barely give us our OWN money much less someone else's.

If you take the position that he manipulated your gram into putting his name on her accounts, well, that's not against the law except in very narrow circumstances. Unfortunate, but true. Also practically always unprovable.
