An agent for an elderly person.

This is a serious and dangerous situation. Your brother is not properly managing his fiduciary responsibilities. Contact an elder law attorney and find out how to rescind his powers and institute guardianship proceedings.

Also contact local police and find out if injunctions can be issued against the thieves - they definitely are scammers and have found a target. You might not be able to get an injunction if your father is being neglected by your brother, who should be getting it for him. Ask the police if APS or a temporarily appointed guardian can apply for injunctive relief against the crew of thugs.

And regardless of your brother's pxory authority, I would find a way to move Dad out and away immediately, even if it's just temporarily in your other brother's home.

I would also contact INS and inform them of this crew of predators. Have they ever crossed into the US? If so, INS might be able to revoke their passports.

I would also ask the local police if your father's passport can be revoked so he can't go to Mexico.

Call APS. Then see an attorney to file for guardianship to protect dad. Or woyld he be capable and cognizant to change his POA's?

Ok, my dad is 80 and my younger brother is his poa. He was living with them for about a year, up until a month and a half ago. From what I understand they could not qualify without my dad's credit on a new home purchase. Then he also co-signed on for my sister-in-law's new vehicle. Since his stroke my dad has always wanted to move back so he could have control of his money and life. Now my dad is living back in his trailer. There is a lady that takes care of him. And she does a good job. Since my dad has been on his own he has gone thru 12k to 14k and maxed out $2100 on a credit card. The caregiver was concerned and told me that he could pick up his medicine because he did not have enough for the co-pay, which is $17.00. He is sending all his money to this 44 year old woman in Juarez, who happens to have brother's in the zetas. He stays without money to send it to her. A couple of weeks ago he went to Mexico and he have her $2500 to give to an attorney for a new id and whatever else she needs to cross the border. He wants her here to marry her. I found her record in AZ DOC, trafficking, sale, etc. She told the caregiver she was in prison for 6.5 years. Now I recently found out that 3 years ago when my dad arrived to Sky harbor from Juarez, the lady that picked him up, said he was covered in dry blood and was beaten and bruised. He was in Mexico on his birthday weekend. The family wanted to see him and he said he was sick and could see anyone and told them not to come over for like 2 weeks or so. Well it so happens the men visiting his girlfriend in Mexico had company. When he came back from the restroom his wallet was missing and he got into it with them. My dad receives roughly $4600 combined retirement and ss. Also when he first moved back he had another care giver. She called my brother to inform him that my dad's leg was really swollen and painful. He told her to take him to the hospital. She also told me that my brother never called her for any follow up to see if he went or not, or how he was doing. Because I do not want him to go to Mexico on 9/29, I told my brother to take over the bank accounts and limit the money he has access to. His excuse for not doing so, is that he does not want to cause my dad to have another stroke or worse. Last year my dad couldn't speak coherently but still managed to yell at my brother to send the woman $600.00. All these people know when he receives his checks and that is when they come around to give their sob stories and he gives them money, he literally just gives his money away to them. I told my brother tell dad you are going to be taking care of his finances again. And he will be receiving less money because you are saving for funeral expenses, home repairs, etc. And you can also pay me the money he owes me. My sister-in-law chimed in and said that my "dad didn't want to pay me the money he owes you so why should we, it's not going happen". I answered you act as though I am stealing it, but you have no problem with him sending the money to the woman in Mexico that had him beaten up in her own home and is taken him to the cleaners. My other brother offered to have my dad and his caregiver live in the same apartment complex and he would watch out for him and the poa would remain as it is. We did not hear one word in response. So there you go....

The "agent" of a poa? What does that mean?

Power of attorney grants the power to act on behalf of the grantor, for the grantor's benefit. Not for the benefit of anyone else. So of course the answer is no.

Do you want to tell us what is going on? It sounds like you might want to get APS and/or law enforcement involved.
