I live in a senior citizens housing building. I am 65 y/o. There is a 54 y/o woman in our building that is making up excuses that have caused a few (possibly more) residents to loan her money. To each person who has loaned her money, she is now refusing to pay it back. From me she borrowed $100, supposedly because her dog was sick. I gave her $100 cash. The first time I asked for it back as she had already not adhered to the agreed way she was to pay it back, she wrote me a nasty letter, but detailed in writing how she was supposed to pay me back. (So, I have a letter from her stating that she owes me money). It goes on and on. She is also borrowing much larger sums from others in our building with various reasons she needs to borrow the money. A few people have loaned her larger sums and she refuses to pay it back. We are all elderly, above the age of 65 and 70 or older. What can we do to get our money back. She is obviously a thief/scammer and talented at finding ways to extract money from people who thought they should help her in her time of need. (tongue in cheek). Help us. Does this fall under elder abuse laws. Can we go to the police? Should I tell my local Agency for the Aging (I am a customer of theirs).
