Who do you report POA abuse to?

SIL is buying things for FIL with his money and keeping it for herself! Flat screen tv, furniture, etc. She hasn't been consulting the other POA on the order or telling him what she's doing!

  • You call Adult Protective Services. They specialize in these kinds of financial abuses of the elderly. There will be a quick and thorough investigation. Look them up in your phone book and get on the phone ASAP.

    Don't consult an attorney at this time, it will do you no good. And besides once APS has made a ruling against the offending POA, you wont need an attorney. Their rights will be revoked, they will likely be fined and all property will be returned. You will waste your money and time on an attorney. Again ... CALL APS.

  • Call your states office of ageing. They will take care of it and you will not have to pay an attorney.

  • If you don't like it, go somewhere else and stop being rude. I'm asking because you don't obviously call the police. Some of you can be just bitches sometimes.

  • Know that your sister does not have to tell the other POA what she is doing having multiple POAs doe snot mean you have them looking over each others shoulders it just means that many more people can make choices and possibly abuse their powers. However her using his funds like her own personal bank account will get her into a large amount of trouble. It is elderly abuse. Your states office of aging should act fast once notified.
