Unfortunately, this is a legit.

But, she does have a deck in her backyard that has a pretty nice fire pit (hole) in it.

Biggest time ever I have agreed with Skooter Built. I wouldn't wait for the lawyer to get the money back. Call the police.

I would persoanlly ask my local 4x4 community for advice and take the advice of the person with the worst grammar and spelling. Then I would steal the oxy to sell to son of the other lady to get the money back since your grandmother obviously wont miss them.

Since killing scumbags is still illegal, I'd go to the police.

And don't count on getting the money back, that's long gone. Just put the bitch behind bars.

I drove my grandparents nuts with an alchohol addiction and if it wasn't for my grandmother and her faith in me I'd probably still be drinking. It's not the same but I say NO MERCY for people that take advantage of old folks. Haul their asses into court.

Go to the police--as long as your grandmother is on board. If she doesn't want to file charges against the lady, at least get a PPO against the woman so she can't get back into your grandmothers house or pocketbook. I'm sorry your grandmother has been taken advantage of, I am sure you are furious.

What is right is not always popular. You have to make the best decision for your grandmother and her safety.

Well, duh.

And, action was taken prior to this post.
I posted this to see what people would say. I was shocked (not from here) as to how many people said use this to get the money back.

The part that worried me the most was that this ladies tweaked son knows where my grandma lives, and what kind of pain med she has.
Locks were changed today. An alarm is going in tomorow.

I would like to also add the disabled.

Dave, is anything written down about the money? We had a similar situation with my grandfather. It was on the way to court when the other party decided to settle.

Dave you know what to do obviously, being that you already stated action was taken.

Anyway, I have to say this dood may be someone to watch changing the locks was a great Idea but a dope fiend will smash a window so x2 on getting the alarm. Unfortuneately some of the communities in the area have terrible police response.

Maybe you know an unemployed Mexican you can hire to pose as a gardener for a while, or hide skooter in the bushes.

I do not think the money is any issue. It is hard to do much about your grandma lending money to someone with out any contract. You said the lady has paid some back already so what law was broken. I find it more interesting that you say she can still take "care of herself". It seems to me like if someone is taking her for money and stealing drugs from her meybe your grandma really can not take care of herself. I know how hard it is to get someone to go to assisted living but this sounds to me like a case where someone needs to make that decision on her behalf. Maybe it is time for whoever has her "power of attorney" or whatever it is cxalled look into this situation alot closer. Hopefully your garndma has made arrangements for someone to take over in her best interests.

Any documents regarding the money - IOU, signed agreement, etc...? Can you clearly demonstrate to a third party that [a] she took/borrowed money, [b] how much, and [c] there was an expectation that she was to pay it back.

Regarding the drugs, again can you prove that she took them?

I'd definitely call the cops - they may not be able to do much but you need to get it documented in a report.

It's a hassle, but I would also pursue civil action. A loser that would take advantage of a vulnerable elderly person who also has an addict kid probably doesn't have a pot to piss in, so there's probably nothing to get - maybe place a lien on the house.

All in all, it sucks. This is a big part of the reason behind assisted living.
