My question involves police conduct in the State of: CA
Called police to file elder financial abuse my brother is doing to our mom. Gave cop copy of their bank statements showing him illegally doing an in house transfer from mom's personal SS deposit account into his where he is the beneficiary of disability and my mom was the rep payee. 1. It's illegal for any other deposits to be made into a rep payee account. 2. It's against the law for the beneficiary to have direct access to his funds. 3. There is a $2,000.00 limit to that account and was over the limit by a couple hundred (on more than one occasion). 4. It's against the law mixing Rep. payee money and beneficiary money.
The bank had not been monitoring these accounts at all and for years illegal deposits have been made. I showed the bank what was going on and that my mom's history screams abuse. Riddled with pay day loans to the point they consumed all her benefits every month. No bills paid, insufficient funds and overdraft chgs kept putting her account in the red. Banks say they are the first line of defense to catch elder abuse. YEAH RIGHT!
After the cop left he went over to my brothers who is 5150 and has been abusing my mom and has made her stay there for protection. I went to get a copy of the report to add it to a restraining order I was going to file. But was told it's open (reported it 11/10/2018) and I am the suspect! ME? I don't have a bank account or a cell phone or made the transfers and I have never stolen money from anyone! I can make my own. My mom is covering for him. I know I need to talk to an attorney about this. Wondering if there's any suggestions? I have the year of 2018 of her statements when I made the report I only gave them a copy of hers and his for one month. I only had that one of his. I need to get this cleared up I was given the name of the detective.
