My brother has cried poor for most of his adult life and my mother has continually given him financial help. He is now remarried and living in a house that his wife bought - cash, no mortgage. His wife has been out of work for 4 years and he has a low paying job. He has taken about $12,000 out of my mother's accounts over the last 10 months, which she approved, and even set up joint accounts. My mother is 92 and active, not suffering from dementia. My other brother handles her investments and showed me a report on her RRIF withdrawals over the last 21 years. She has withdrawn $336,000 from that account and does not need that money to meet her normal expenses, as her pensions cover them and also gives her $1200/mo discretionary spending money. We have not received any of the $336,000. Maybe wrong forum & stupid question but - is this senior financial abuse?
