My brother gifted my father's entire fortune to himself and hid it under his wife's name and investments. My brother failed to communicate to me that he stripped me of my medical power of attorney cause i knew my dad wanted to be buried, and he objected cause of price. so he went against his wishes, and cremated him. Problem is: he became Power of attorney financially, and wasted no time to gift it to himself. My mother is a widower now, and my dad wanted her to have the rest of his money. My brother did no sudh thing, and i believe him and my mother struck up an agreement concerving some of the money for his four kids. He recently became a realtor, but was doing so well with his senior mortgage position at remax. i do believe he obtained a small fortune, ripped off the nursing home by hiding it, and walked away with the attitude only explained in a narcissistic manner. Please, what steps can I take to uncover this criminal behavior. I don't even want money, but he upset me so much when I found out about his wife on medical power of attorney, which I did not know until I called my dad at his home and my brother stripped him of a phone and instructed the staff that only he or lauren could talk to my dad. I learned of his death via textmessage. Morally devoid is my brother.

Get poa, then go to all the accounts and get copies of all trabsactions for the period if time you think this happened. Best if u can get online access and print everything as well as make electronic copies. If they show proof of her funds being taken illegally, check to see who in your state handles elder economic abuse and report it. It may have been a move to make them eligible for medicaid without losing everything they have. Contact their medical prividers abd ask if they have been diagnosed as incompetent. Poa is different from guardianship. Both are supposed to act in wards best interest.

If your mother is currently of sound mind to make legal decisions and agrees to make you POA financially and medically--can't you have her change it back to you? You probably can't dig up the hidden money, but can make medical decisions. It would be very time consuming and expensive to uncover, if possible, the paper trail. I am sorry you are going through this, and your family. I understand the narcissist mentality. Unfortunately, there is long thread of posts on this site of people with dysfunctional families/relationships. Very sad and frustrating. Pam is correct regarding Medicaid going back 5 yrs., but I am retired caseworker, and aware that not ALL fraudulent activities are caught. I wish you peace, as it's your emotions in turmoil, not your brother's.

The money would have had to be moved at least 5 years before Dad entered the nursing home, or Medicaid would have flagged the transaction. Your mother, assuming she is mentally whole, can do whatever she wants.
Not much you can do at this late date. You would have to prove that Dad had dementia/legal incapacity when he was signing things over.
My advice? Forget the money. Mend fences with your family if you can. I suspect someone in the family is trying to stir you up with mistruths.
