Story told to me by a 94-year-old woman named Ruth:
My daughter Julia had me sign over power of attorney to her when I was 94 years old and had a bad cold. A few months later, I was in another state and had a medical emergency. Julia called the hospital and told the doctors to deny all medical care. She went to my bank and emptied my bank box and liquidated my accounts. She took my name off the title to my house. She had all financial statements for my investments mailed to her home in another state. I was able to convince the doctors to give me the blood transfusion and surgery that I needed. I never was able to get back the financial powers that I once had. My daughter Diana, who I was visiting, restored me to health despite what Julia tried to do. Once I returned home, I did not get any mail -- not even a birthday card. Everything went to Julia's mailbox in another state.
I never fixed this problem to my satisfaction. Julia sold my house. I hated to have anyone know this about my eldest daughter. She is a thief.
