I recently found out someone took out a car loan under my mom's name... shes bed ridden & me & my son take care of her at home per her wishes. I had this power of attorney since March, lawyer didn't say how long I have to get it done. How we found out about this was we were trying to get a copy to show her social security, it got cut in half but we couldn't continue because we need the name of the person who made the loan. So on the 7th of this month we got it notarized. My mom shouldn't stress about this. CAN SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME IF IT'S LEGAL? So we can go to bank & soical security office.
