Disputed transfer of monies from gran's account to my daughter
Hi, My elderly ex mother in law, a wonderful lady, set up telephone banking on my daughter's phone some time ago as my daughter was her main source of support, emotionally and practically. This was done by calling the bank and asking for this happen so the bank spoke to my daughter and to my ex MIL to set this up for them, (MIL was a switched on individual and was very aware of her decisions) thus giving my daughter 3rd party access to the bank account from which she then managed MIL bills etc as required. MIL became ill this year and advised my daughter that she didn't want her son's, who provided no kind of support at any time, to have her savings. She said that this was to go to her 2 great grandchildren. When she was hospitalised in her last few weeks, where she was listed as her next of kin, she asked my daughter to move the money out of her account for the children which my daughter did. On the her death, her son's have bullied and threatened my daughter with arrest for fraud and theft of said money. MIL was compus mentus when she told my daughter to move the money and had already previously discussed this with both of my daughters. She has been told by the son's that she has to have the money back in the bank immediately or she will be in trouble as the bank are now investigating a fraudulent action and she will be arrested. Is my daughter in trouble for doing something that her nan asked her to do, and did whilst MIL was alive?
Can anyone advise please?
