Hi I would like seek an advice regarding the predicament my mother is in. My brother was able to get money from his friends because he said that he can help them get a job im the US. No contracts or documents were signed and my brother got money based on good persuasion I guess. He got around 500k from several people. This is where the problem is, he borrowed the atm account and card of my mom because he said that he is doing some buy and sell and he needs an account for the buyers to send their money. Since it's her son, my mother gave her card to him. She is just a housewife so her account is used if i send her money or if her sisters send her money too because she has no means of income.So some of the scam money went through her account without her knowledge. To cut the long story short, my brother is now nowhere to be found and now the people who were scammed are now running after my mom because they have some deposit slips to prove that they got money. They never talked to my mom nor signed any document pertaining to any cash transaction. Now we are trying to look for ways to pay them off. Any legal steps that we can do to protect my mom? She is innocent and was scammed too by her own son. Appreciate any helpful tips or advice that anyone could give. Thank you.
