If she claimed to have made $80K per year and only reported $21K on her income taxes, maybe they should get the sleaze for tax fraud, too.

Well, if he did in fact give them power of attorney when he was still mentally capable and didn't sign any documents which would limit HOW his money could be used, then unfortunately I don't know that the Whitneys could be convicted of theft (now, their taxes are another story). However, even if they aren't convicted of theft, they are certainly both extremely despicable low-lifes to take advantage of Mr. Long. Very sad that he had no one else in whom to place his trust.

No doubt these people are thieves. I grew up in Schuylkill County and this is common practice by the dirtbags. Befriend an elderly person with distant relatives, or better yet - no relatives and work yourself into their good graces. Then trick them into getting them to sign off on power of attorney or have them will everything to you. I know of several cases of this.

Lot of white trash scum up there. I hope they get their just rewards.
