After my father in law lost his mother and then his step father that lived with him for more then 20 years he became depressed got a 28 year old girlfriend sold his home and now she's blown all his money and putting him on the street since he is now broke! He is 62 and has not been taking care of his health, starting to decline and all his money and belongings are gone because of her!
Hhowever, if he gave this woman his money, there may be little recourse. These people are predators and know exactly how to maneuver around the law. I wish you the best of luck.
