Scenio: Elder Financial Abuse in California: My Mom named my

Scenio: Elder Financial Abuse in California: My Mom named my brother on her savings and checking accounts years ago in case something happened to her. She made several loans to my brother with the mutual (verbal) agreement of him paying her back. Eventually he took over her accounts - changed them to online statements without her permission and she could no longer see the account activity. (she does not use a computer). She later went to the bank and got paper statements and changed it back. He asked once in a while if he could borrow money after that, but eventually he stopped asking and just starting transferring money at will. My brother took her retirement savings of 200,000. down to 300 dollars from 2011 to 2015. As soon as she closed that savings - he started transferring money out of her checking account. He also owes my Dad 25K but my dad has a promisory note and my mom does not. What is my parents recourse (he owns a 2 million dollar house). Any advice would be appreciated. He will not willingly pay them back and does not have the cash flow to pay them back. Please advise as to options and recourse.

I am a small animal (cat) breeder in San Diego County, CA. I

I am a small animal (cat) breeder in San Diego County, CA. I was contacted for a kitten by a woman who did not know what sex she wanted and I only breed for myself and I told her a kitten may be available unless I choose to keep it for my breeding program. After this condition was made and before the kittens were born, she sent me a deposit of $500 for a price of $2500. The kittens were born on 4 July and on 10 July I wrote to her that I may want to keep the male (litter had 4: 3 female and 1 male). As time went on, I discussed the kitten as though it was hers, but my website defines a sale as having a written contract with the buyer; until then, all kittens are my property. On 3 August, I finally decided I cannot sell the male kitten and I returned the deposit. Her husband is an attorney who owns his own Construction Defect Firm in Palos Verdes Estates and he threatened to sue us if we do not sell them the kitten because they believe they have an oral contract. After much debate, he claims to be filing a lawsuit next week. I believe the sale is mine to cancel even if I have to use Seller's Remorse. Thoughts on how we might prevail?

We discovered that Dun & Bradstreet over charged us $600

We discovered that Dun & Bradstreet over charged us $600 last September and they agreed to give it back, but only in the form of a credit toward future purchases (of which we plan on making none). True, it is our fault for not noticing the charge on our credit card until now, but it is legitimate for them to keep the money when they admit that it is not really theirs?Thanx!Donna
