Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

You can file a complaint for credit card fraud and also financial abuse of the elderly with the police and it is up to them to take it to the DA to decide on prosecution.

Also, if you have a small claims judgment, your next step is filing a motion for writ of execution on judgment and ask the court to issue an order to levy his bank accounts or his property if you know where they are located and if you do not know where they are located, then you can file a motion for a debtor examination together with the writ of execution and force him to court to disclose his assets so you can seize them for the judgment.

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.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
