Types of Power of Attorney Abuse

Power of attorney abuses can take many forms. It is committed by both family members and non-family.

Sometimes it’s caused because the POA agent does not understand 1) his/her role (mismanagement, improper accounting, poor investment decisions) and 2) duties the agent owes the principal (the person who executed the POA). A POA is supposed to act in the best interest of the principal when handling transactions for the principal.
