I have heard of Banks that will notify family members if any activity over a certain dollar figure occurs.

It is so despicable that there are people and businesses that prey on older folks. I had a part time masonry business and I did a lot of brick and tile jobs where elders would come over and watch me work. Some are lonely and would ask me to come over to check out a crack in their chimney or some other small repair. I could never imagine over charging these sweet old people and I did a few freebies for the ones that you could tell had no money. If taking advantage of older people is what it takes to make a successful business than I am glad my masonry business was not a big financial success.
I might not have piles of money but I have no trouble sleeping at night.

Carol, good luck finding a way to help Al's Mom from being ripped off in the future.
