    Don't know about police, not sure he's actually committed a crime yet, after all Mum said it was OK, even if she had no idea what she was agreeing to, but thinking about asking them for advice.

    Think he's beginning to realise I am not as stupid/gullible as he first thought. Problem is Mum refuses to let me confront him.

    He's taking advantage of the elderly. How many other 'customers' does he have??

    Not a nice person in my opinion.

    Are you able to keep a check on her finances just to make sure he isn't taking cash off her

    It's awful this Sue. But we know it goes on. Your mam is vulnerable and it sounds like he's abusing her good nature

    I get all her money out, most of it goes in the safe (which she can no longer open) and just leave her with about £100 cash for paying cleaner, gardener, etc. Get more out when she needs it, but don't keep a close eye on what she does with the £100. Perhaps I should.
    Sometimes friends or my Aunt will bring her some shopping and she pays them for this. I do her main shopping.
    All regular bills paid by DD.
    I am Enduring Power of Attorney and check all her statements etc.
    But still feel there is some sort of scam going on.
    Can't be there 24 hours a day, tomorrow have to do an 80 mile round trip to one of my own hospital appointments.

    Cherish those you have in your life because you never know when they won't be there anymore.

    No matter how you feel, get up, dress up & never give up.

    Good evening Elite.
    Hoping everyone is warm, happy and well. Hugs to those not currently so.

    Did someone say free?! Serves me right for skim catching up and not paying attention. Having still not yet partaken in the latest glitchityness, please let me not jinx it when I try (hopefully) tomorrow. Could some kind person please point me in the direction of the lovely 3dogs list?
