Beware Senior Financial Abuse
When the elderly widow showed up with a young man who was not related to her, ready to sign over her home to him, New York eldercare attorney Anne-Margaret Carrozza immediately grew suspicious. She refused to draw up the paperwork.
But six months later she discovered that the young man had taken her client to another attorney, who did transfer ownership of her home. Carrozza immediately alerted the District Attorney and Adult Protective Services, and the man was forced to return the home to his victim. The courts also appointed a guardian to pay the widow’s bills and make sure her assets were protected.
