There are actually people taking up for this creep. I have to wonder if they would feel the same if he did this to their grandmother. Might change the equation a little? A thief is a thief is a thief. End of story.

The crooks name is Joseph William Boswell ( He likes to be called "Joey") He thinks he sounds more Trusting if you call him "Joey" ( Least that's what he thinks)

And you are right there ARE Lawyers in this county that take Advantage of the Elderly, Like Ford Sr. & his Sunny Boy Ford Jr!(They are in the Book) Old Sr Has been Milking the Bank account of An old Lady in the Nursing Home For Years!!, That Has a Big old House on Pocahontas Ave in Ronceverte Going to get every last Penny!.....It is a Shame that there are Scum Like these "People" in the World!

Yes, it is... this may be the same guy. If it is, I hear his father and mother are helping him out with the crime-taking advantage of an elderly person. Also, have heard the name ford mentioned in a bad way; as well as an Attorney named Barry Bruce and an S. Hunter?
Are there any honest attorneys in Greenbrier County?? I guess it would be best not to get an attorney in that county.

Taking advantage of the elderly is the lowest form of human indecency there is. This sort of thing just makes me sick and I hope these victims can be helped.

Mrs. Vanderpool passed away the next day after learning what the Boswells -(son, father and mother) have swindled/conned her husband out of (with the help of a lawyer), their home - everything they own - everything they worked for all those years. No doubt she died of broken heart and gave up. So sad - there is a special place in hell for these people.

What about the shyster lawyer and the low life family members of this piece of trash? Are there charges forthcoming for them too? They should all rot in hell.
