Some of you may remember my post a while ago, written in great distress after I found out an old friend of my dads had been fleecing him of thousands of pounds. I thought I would just let you know how things were going. I have just recieved this information from my solictor and I am amazed! See what you think....... "Dear Zoe I have received a letter from XXXX XXXXXXXX. In it she talks about her friendship with your father and your mother. She also refers to the fact that he has been on holiday to her cottage in North Yorkshire and to her timeshare which she states was free of charge. She states she knows nothing at all about the Norwich Union and suggests that we contact them direct. Have you had any further information from Norwich Union? She claims that your father asked her to marry him on many occasions and she only recalls one “present” which she says was for her birthday on 25 June. I have written to her today repeating what I said earlier to her about the cheques for £3,000 on 14 March 2007 which by implication in her letter she claims to know nothing about. Before I do anything more than that I do need to know what you have been able to find out, or not as the case may be, about the £10,000 with Norwich Union." OK.....now I am even more horrified than before. Does this woman think she is really going to get away with stealing approximately £20,000+ with these silly lies and excuses? It's almost laughable! I think its time to call the Police in and Ive told the solicitor that. Its just I KNOW it will distress dad terribly and he's doing so well at the moment. How the heck am I going to get him through it all? *Sighs... Why are some people so evil? Who on earth are we supposed to trust in life if not our oldest friends? Do I risk making dad ill with the worry of all this? Can I live with that woman getting away with what she has done for the sake of dads health? Im full of questions and cannot find the answers. Sorry to moan yet again, Im just at a loss at what to do and know theres only you who will truly understand. On a MUCH better note, ive also just had a phone call from Attendance Allowance bods....dads awarded the higher rate, backdated from April...WEHEY!!!! He givethethetheth and he takethethetheth away!
