What should I do about my sister stealing all my dad's money using a power of attorney?
My sister cashed in and spent over $150,000, and also didn't pay any taxes on it. Now Dad has nothing but his social security check, and owes $50,000 in credit cards and $30,000 to the IRS. Dad is now living with her. I said my sister should turn over his S.S. to me to save for any unexpected expenses Dad may have, and she should provide housing and food to help make up for her theft. My mom and brother originally agreed with me, but now have been worn down by her bullying. Yesterday they said that they would be willing to let her keep his S.S. checks to spend as she sees fit so that we could have a happy family again. I am in disbelief. I think she has been more than amply compensated already and I don't think she should continue to take all his money. I also don't want to lose my family though. Any advise would be appreciated. Thank you.
