  • Signing my name without the actual POA

    I talked to this person asked me them if that would like to be my power of attorney and they said yes, I never signed the papers so.

    Then I went to Europe for 5 months and she signed a document in my name (a check) that I did not know about. What can I do to get her for wrongly signing my name.

    Without your written POA she committed forgery. She could go to prison for it. If that's what you want, report the forgery to the police. If it's not what you want, then just work something out with her.

      Did she think you had authorized her?
      It depends somewhat, if she purposely stole from you or if you somehow confused her with this POA stuff.

      If her intent was wrong then feel free to file a police report with the police, she will have no defense.

        Now she is saying she thought I authorized her but before she was just not answering my calls.
        Then when I said I would file a police report she called.
        We will see how this works out but she knew she was not authorized I am sure.
        Thank you for helping out on this.

          Have you reported this to the bank?

            Yeah I think its called forgery, it's that simple.
            And one can be locked up for that!

              She paid me back and and has promised never to do it again.
              Thank you for all the helpful comments. I had no idea what to do at first.
