My MIL is 85 and lives fairly independently alone in her house. I see her every other day and keep an eye on her health and physical issues. Though she is getting frail, I had no idea that her “executive function” was slipping. Last week I discovered (too late) that she was scammed out of $20K after clicking on a phishing link. One of those ridiculous stories that you think no-one in their right mind would fall for… helping the FBI catch a child trafficking ring by letting them “trace the money” using her cash. The money is gone (we contacted the bank, police, real FBI) but what now for MIL? Clearly she is vulnerable and unable to recognize bad decisions. Otherwise she seems ok (we are getting a doc evaluation next week). I don’t want to take away her computer as it’s an important social outlet, but how to protect her when no-one is there?
