My DH has become aware of a couple who are 'grooming' - for want of a better word - elderly people.
The couple were wardens on a warden patrolled small estate.
They have recently have been 'gifted' two bungalows by two elderly people on the estate plus who knows what else.
DH has just heard that the latest elderly person they 'befriended' has just left them a bungalow and a couple of vehicles.
Apparently, they befriend elderly people who have no relatives. They treat them well by taking them out, having them around for meals and generally caring for them. This goes on for a couple of years until the elderly person dies. By this time it appears that they have changed their will in the couple's favour.
I do not know all of the details but my DH and a few other people have seen this happening over the last few years.
My DH is disgusted with this as he thinks it is financial abuse. I agree with him. I am not sure if they have an ulterior motives and they are treating the elderly people kindly. However, my DH says it all just feels a bit off. He says the man in question is not a pleasant person at all.
Should we report this couple or just keep our noses out? After all the elderly people are free to leave their money to whoever they like??
