agree very fishy

You could report it to court of protection but you're on dodgy grounds as you shouldn't be accessing his banking.

I don't think you should do anything really.

Is your name on the account? If it is why does he need to transfer money from your own account to you?

ashtrayheart Wed 01-Jan-14 20:32:27

Oh I see, if it's a joint account that's different. You could report it as a safeguarding issue to your local social services if you think the 'uncle' is being financially abused, which it sounds like.

Is the account still in both your names? If it's his name only, then you shouldn't really be accessing it. However, if you're named on the account then I think you should query it.

This absolutely stinks. Yes, I'd talk to SS about financial abuse.

Your exH really is a piece of work isn't he! Sorry that your exMIL now appears to be involved too.

It is abuse of the uncles money if he is unable to give consent so yes the Court of Protection should be informed as should socialsevices as it is a safeguarding issue and potentially a removal of assets which are there to pay for care.

What a scumbag

I can't think of any legitimate reason for him to be paying for your dd.

I do see your parent's POV, I know it's taken forever to get anything (have read other threads of yours), but basically your exMIL is defrauding this man and his blood relatives.

it stinks but I'd be in 2 minds, your dd might end up with bugger all

Could you not contact his bank (uncles) depending on the amount his bank might be a little suspicious about sums of money suddenly coming out? x

I'd keep quiet, but keep it up my sleeve if you know what I mean

KittensoftPuppydog Wed 01-Jan-14 21:19:56

That's disgusting. Good for you that you are concerned. I'm not sure what you should do but the bank is probably first stop.

EdithWeston Wed 01-Jan-14 21:20:07

The abuse of the elderly is a serious problem.

You have evidence which suggests that a vulnerable individual is being defrauded.

Yes, that should be acted upon. The vulnerable should be protected.

KittensoftPuppydog Wed 01-Jan-14 21:21:46

The police then. And that's not something I'd usually say.
