“Rarely does a good idea interrupt you.”
"I remember a neighbor came over to Mom's house one day demanding $1600. She brought along her intimidating father. She claimed Mom owed her half the cost of a newly built fence
separating their properties.
The neighbor knew of Mom's Alzheimer's diagnosis. She also knew I already paid Mom's portion directly to the fence company. The confrontation confused and scared Mom, to the degree she handed over a check for $1600. It took me 7 months, and a court order to get Mom's money back." -Vic, Founder of FF
