my mother is independent, she drives, we perfer local, but can't tell her what to do. she drives 3 hr.s away.at times to visit her sisters, & not safe.. This is my problem this summer my 85 yr. old mother has been going to beach, were she met this 50 yr. old male. she spends every day with him. I don't think he has a job especially if hes with her all day, and they talk on phone @ night. She likes talking like a big business tycoon/ buying land/houses..(she lives with me 30 yrs, owns nothing) She thinks nothing is wrong wiht it. He has 2 houses he wants to sell I just found out, and he took her to one of his houses for her to buy.. we asked what his last name is no answer. I asked her what does a 50 yr. old want with an 85 yr. old woman she just laughed and went to her room... My fear is that he is going to try and swindle her money that she worked so hard for and enjoy herself..
