Relative stole all of mom's money, tried to buy her house for $10.00, refilled mom's medicine (strong painkillers) long after mom was gone, took out a car loan by forging my mom's name and I drive it. Stole all the insurance payouts, and didn't pay any of my mom's bills for at least 8 months prior to her death. I live in the house and have for over 30 years, now I find out that deadbeat druggy sister ripped us all off and didn't pay taxes on house. She refilled the meds on a military installation, so I want to know what type of recourse I have. I want to press charges and see her do time. Odds I ever see any money from her is very remote, but knowing she can't steal from anyone else because she is sitting in the pen, is good for me. One more thing, my mom was a well-known realtor in town, had many, many friends. This sister refused to get an obituary for her, in fact, she tried and was somewhat successful at getting on line web site to ask for money to pay the funeral since she spent all the money. My mom was an officers wife, a pilot in the military. Again, she was also a very successful realtor and watched her budget like a hawk. More or less, she passed away penniless because of the brainwashing my sister played on her.

roomiedown, first sorry for your loss. One question, who was your Mother's financial Power of Attorney while she was alive?

Was the house in your mom's name? I worry that creditors will put a lien against it if it was part of her estate and you will be homeless. Is your sister in a position to repay the estate, or is all that money gone? That possibility alone would be reason enough to pursue this in court.
I'm so sorry you have to deal with this after losing your mom.

1. Get all the documentation to support the claims you're making, and go to the police.

2. Do the same with the documentation and go to the military unit that initiates charges. I'm assuming your mother was not still in the service when the relative refilled the scripts, but rather that your mother had base privileges to use the pharmacy because of her prior service?

3. Talk to the pharmacist and advise him/her of the fraud and ask how to pursue it through military channels.

4. Ask both the local and state police about cyber crimes in crowd source funding and how to pursue them.

5. If you knew about this before your mother died, did you contact anyone then to take criminal actions against your sister? How did you find out about this fraudulent activity?

Do you have proof of the financial exploitation? If so, see the district attorney.
