Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only. Please feel free to ignore any phone service request, the expert does not send those unless asked by customer and they are sent by the site automatically.

You have two options. The first option is go to the District Attorney as you were told. The second option is to call Adult Protection Services and file a complaint against them for financial abuse and theft from the elderly/disabled and let them investigate. Until you know for sure it was your sister, you cannot take the other option of suing her in court to recover the money she took from you.

So you need to contact Adult Protection and the DA and file a complaint for them to investigate, that is your first step. Second, once they identify who did this, you can use a local civil attorney to sue them to recover the money they took from you.

Please do not forget to leave positive feedback by clicking on the 5 stars at the top of your page, as the experts are not employees of the site and get no credit for spending time with customers unless they leave positive feedback. Thank you.
