Topic: new scam?
Posted: 10/July/2005 at 12:56
My problem is that-
my father (from a defacto with my blood mother- long separated) and who previously lived alone, has allowed his boarder to become his lover and now registered carer....he is not incapacitated, just scared of being alone/dying..my family and I feel she(the carer/lover) has taken advantage of this anxious old man, and is now scamming centrelink for a carer's allowance/payments...add to this, her becoming his defacto (purely by the fact she is living/bonking him)..(he says he's not in love), and you have a situation that's very frustrating..He's even written her into his will!...our inheritance is dwindling by the minute...we feel she will contest the will even further, perhaps take her share of the property and then some!.....we suspect she's done this to previous partners..
we suspect this happens quite often...people pretending to be carers then moving into the will...
Can I dob her in to centrelink?...would they bother to investigate?....
can she contest more than her share?...can we contest her share?...should we get a P.I. to check out her history?
