I could all be innocent but I worry. Dad was given by two "girls" he met at Wal Mart their phone numbers. I wanted to take them away but he had them in his wallet. Thank God (in one way) that his phone isn't charging but I think he was going to call one of them yesterday. He goes to Wal Mart almost every day.
He also cashed one of his rent checks ($700) and when he was counting how much he had left it was $295. He had no idea where the other $400 went. (cashed ck on Monday and this was Sat!!) No large purchases. I have told him he needs to put the money in the bank! I am paying his bills and I need the money to pay his bills (well, really he has plenty in savings but that's not the point. I've been trying to build up his savings so I can hire help when the times comes). I also told him it is dangerous for him to be walking around with so much money in his wallet.
I have been putting off moving in with him but I don't see how anyone else can oversee all he has. His 3 rental properties (two of which are on his property), his 3 animals (1 dog and 2 cats) and him!!
I'm thinking of going to the bank and locking down his savings and trying to arrange something where he only has access to part of his money. ( I am POA and he has all his legal documents in order. I am only surviving family left with exception of niece who has her own young family to raise). Then I'd have to tell the renters to mail payments to me; but he'd really be mad about that.
I don't know what to do. Anyone else have all this to deal with?
