Please can anyone help/advise. A younger niece 29, came to stay with mum and I. We are 87 and 67 years old. A year ago we discovered that she had stolen every penny we had and more besides by obtaining 2 overdrafts on our joint account. Total taken £16,500 leaving two disabled ladies broke and £5000 in debt. Funeral expenses all gone. What can two oaps do in cases like this.
In March she pleaded guilty to 4 counts of fraud. The police had asked for reparations to be made. The court didn’t mention the money to be repaid.
We are still struggling with the debt. How can we recover some if not all of our money?
