Hello Mr. Knowitall,
This is my first day on the site and I am having difficulty finding the correct forum. I assume that once I have I can post my thread and get some advice.
I am not sure in what category that my problem falls into, but here is a brief summary:
My father moved in with my Step Brother in Indiana in August 2009 due to health problems. My Father wrote out checks totalling about $18,000 payable to the Step Brother and his wife for the purpose of setting up a bank account for his benefit. He also executed a hand written power of attorney giving the Step Brother control of his assets. He signed his vehicle valued at about $9,000 over to them with the condition that they would use it to carry him to his doctor appointments and other errands. On December the wife forced my Father out unexpectedly and he is now living with me in Wisconsin. I have asked the Step Brother to return my Father's money, his vehicle, furniture, coin collection and other personal effects. The wife has instructed me not to bother them and lose their phone number. The Step Brother can't or won't return calls. Letters that I have written and mailed with signature required have not produced any results. A call to a local attorney in Indiana suggested calling the police. I have copies of the Indiana statutes that cover theft and this seems to qualify. What do I say to the police and what proof do I give them?
OK, where do I go to post this adventure?
