exploitation of the elderly is seen in several different frameworks, which are referred to under such terms as financial abuse, material abuse, fiduciary abuse, financial exploitation, financial mistreatment or maltreatment, and economic victimization. In each case, the perpe- trator misappropriates the assets of an elder for his or her own benefit through coercion, misrepresenta- tion, or theft.
Current Florida statutes note that:
This statute indicating felonious intent requires that there is a knowing deception or intimidation, and places a heavy burden of proof on the state that what- ever funds are transferred are not being given know- ingly, voluntarily, or with proper intent. Many states require that the elderly person, who is the victim of financial exploitation, show some sign of diminished capacity. In these cases, it is necessary to prove that the victim is infirm because of advanced age, frailty, organ- ic mental deterioration, and/or physical, mental, or emotional dysfunction. These impairments are taken legally to show that such an older person is defenseless and more vulnerable to the power and control assert- ed against him or her by the perpetrator, and are thus more easily exploited.
“(1) ‘exploitation of an elderly person or disabled adult’ means: (a) knowingly, by deception or intim- idation, obtaining or using, or endeavoring to obtain or use, an elderly person’s (or disabled adult’s) funds, assets, or property with the intent to temporarily or permanently deprive the elderly per- son or disabled adult of the use, benefit, or possession of the funds, assets, or property, or to benefit someone other than the elderly person or disabled adult, by a person who: 1. stands in a position of trust and confidence with the elderly person or disabled adult; or has a business relationship with the elderly person or disabled adult; or (b) obtaining or using, endeavoring to obtain or use, or co spiring with another to obtain or use an elderly person’s or disabled adult’s funds, assets, or property with the intent to temporarily or permanently deprive the elderly person or disabled adult of the use, benefit, or possession of the funds, assets, or property, or to benefit someone other than the eld- erly person or disabled adult, by a person who knows or reasonably should know that the elderly person or disabled adult lacks the capacity to consent.
The most pernicious predators are those who establish long-term controlling relationships with their elderly victims. These indi- viduals tend to be sociopaths with malignant narcissistic traits who progressively breed fear and help- lessness in their victims. In about one-third of cases, the perpetrator is a family member or close fami- ly acquaintance. The modus operandi is to offer themselves as a savior, healer, advocate, or pro- tector and, over time, cause the elder to sever relationships with friends, business associates, and family, thereby isolating the “victim.” They instill paranoia and suspicion in the victim to increase his or her sense of helplessness and depend- ency on the perpetrator. When the victims have been adequately brainwashed into believing that no one else cares for them or that the objects of their natural boun- ty are either helpless to positively effect their situation or, worse, are plotting against them, the perpetrator makes his or her ongoing support and “protection healers, spiritualists, housekeepers, financial advisors, guardians, or altruistic community members looking after the infirm.
Their characteristic modus operandi is to actively seek out disabled vulnerable victims, with the specific intent of exploiting them financially after establishing trust and confidence. These acts are crim- inal and predatory in nature and are predicated on the dominance and control of the helpless older person through psychological abuse, undermining self- esteem, diminishing self-worth, and providing deceit- ful information, intimidation, threats, and CONTROL OF REALITY TO FIT THE STORY THEY WANT THE ELDER TO BELIEVE. GUARDIANS ARE PROS AT THIS.
Exploiters look for specific areas of impairment or vulnerability, such as a dependent personality, depression, cognitive impairment, physical frailty, or loneliness. They often attach themselves to victims by pretending to offer services or care until they have gained their confidence and trust. Once the victim becomes comfortable and dependent, exploiters enhance their control by isolating the victim from relatives and friends, often by restricting access through monitoring or restricting mail or phone calls, causing the older person to sever relations with friends and organizations, AND FAMILY, implanting the idea in the victim that his or her relatives and friends are only there because they desire to exploit the senior. This enhanced sense of vulnerability and paranoia makes the victims more dependent on the perpetrator, whom they now see as their only protector.
Once this role has been established, sociopaths often insist that they start handling the victim’s money, be paid excessive fees for their “services,” or that they are put on the senior’s bank account. They develop access to security boxes, begin to take possession of assets, and may work with unscrupulous attorneys to execute quit-claim deeds for property. They often establish further legal control by obtaining power of attorney or guardianship, or having themselves included in the victim’s will. They often drain funds by having victims gift them large sums of money (commonly, annual amounts of $10,000 or more), and have the senior designate the money as a gift for IRS purposes. The enforced helplessness, dependence,undermining of self-esteem, and unwillingness to effect change once the elder becomes trapped and dependent are similar to what occurs during cult indoctrinations and with hostages (Stockholm Syndrome).
I can personally attest to seeing Stockholm syndrome in David Cunningham, who thought J Alan Kohr was a great guy until I told him that Kohr took over $800,000 from him and his wife. I then realized that what the federal omnbudsman said was true–these people are hypnotizing the elderly and disabled to brainwash them and make them believe their version of reality, which financially lines their pockets, while it imprisons marathon runners like David Cunningham of Pensacola, 62, who has no health problems, but is drugged and detained like a criminal by the white bracelet on his arm. The ombudsman showed me that too. We are working to get David Free.
Guardians and the cabal that support this human trafficking wolf in sheep’s clothing racketeering activity, are the bottom of the bottom. Lower than low. I have looked two of the top lawyers in the eye and literally saw “no soul” as in “nobody was home anymore.” They are like robots taking orders from an evil master and I promise you, they feel nothing. It’s so hard to imagine. The Bar helped me get counseling for LEGAL ABUSE SYNDROME c/o the lawyers in probate court who killed three elderly women as I was fighting to save their lives, staying up 72 hours at a time for emergency hearings in which I was relentlessly abused and disparaged, mocked, and ridiculed, ultimately realizing that the rule of law has been suspended in statutory probate courts. What the book says isn’t what’s done at all. It’s like they have a script and you weren’t given a copy. As you begin to identify the players, you know the rules and the likely outcome of each case. The mob always has a Godfather or Godmother as in Harris County. Everyone caters to Don.. I’ll let you figure it out. So, the rule is not the Texas Estates Code, written to exploit, but usually whatever Don … wants.
Rather than getting into a literal trap from which the only escape is death, let’s NOT TALK TO STRANGERS. Probate lawyer Howard Reiner has decades of experience as an insider and admits that most wards live about 2 years once in guardianship. They lose the will to live, in my opinion. Studies have shown that choice and responsibility are necessary for children and adults and if you remove either, trouble or apathy results. Without control over any aspect of their situation, elderly victims choose death as the easier softer way. Unimaginable that we would DARE ALLOW THIS!
I believe the many warnings in the Bible in this regard for widows and orphans.
Exodus 22:21-24 ESV
“You shall not wrong a sojourner or oppress him, for you were sojourners in the land of Egypt. You shall not mistreat any widow or fatherless child. If you do mistreat them, and they cry out to me, I will surely hear their cry, and my wrath will burn, and I will kill you with the sword, and your wives shall become widows and your children fatherless.
