My parents live in Florida, I live in Michigan. I handle all of their Finances. All of their living expenses are set up on auto pay. They forward me their medical bills. They use debts cards to pay for groceries, gas,and dinning out. My problem is, they open up charge accounts every where even though I have advised them not to. They have the money available to pay through their checking account. Both my parents have memory issues. So most of the time, the charge card bill gets lost or missed placed. I am not aware of these accounts until they forward me the " Finale Collection Notice". By then, interest and late fees have been applied. I have tried to talk to them about this and I think it goes in one ear and out the other. Is there anything I can do to prevent them from opening new accounts?
