My husband is in denial and completely unsure of how to rectify this situation. Her friends continually call me to tell me serious events of how this woman is using her credit cards, stealing items etc. She moved in took over conned her completely. She recent moved out but now works for her at her auction building. People who've worked for her for years are scared of this woman and deeply concerned for my mother's welfare. They've even told me she's stolen items while they're setting things up for a sale. Can we have her investigated by the police department? What do you suggest? My mother-in-law is now getting into her life savings because her account keeps being emptied! Her workers say their checks keep bouncing which has never happened in 40 plus years. She's continually overdrawn yet she buys nothing. She's 89 years old and still to runs her auction business. She was quite successful until this woman came into het life. HELP!

If someone is truly forging moms signature then that is fraud and you can report suspicions to the bank. The bank will press charges, although the above posters are calling you a troll, idk.

I must agree someone is yanking our chain. No one asks a question like this you just call police or news station. Someone is getting a thrill out of fishing on this site same story different name. I suggest we dont respond just feed their ego...just my opinion

NYDIL, I thought the same thing. It's almost identical in structure to the one in which a poster claimed her mother was being swindled by an organized group of scammers, one of whom was a paralegal.

There are some obvious clues in the title and post.

You should start off by calling the local police and describing the situation to them. You may have too seek guardianship if your mom won't cooperate with an investigation and is giving this money willingly.

I agree with NY DIL. There's one post that dragged on and on and on, with a poster who pretended to want help but never took our advice.

Her description of the event was somewhat similar to yours. She claimed her mother was being scammed by an organized group, including someone who apparently worked with her mother.

I can't locate that post right now, but if you do a search of this site you'll find a lot of posts on the issue.

Type "scam" in the search bar above and start reading. This sort of question has been answered many times already. Help yourself by reading what others have already told other posters.
