it is not my problem, I agree but since Mr O'flaherty is a vulnerable adult and my partner and I have helped him writing down the acusations and we have reported this to action fraud together (Mr Coward also stole off me) I am looking for a way to stop him calling or contacting us. Mr Coward has sent us the following statement, which he is breaching:
Mr Coward has been accusing us both of being drug dealers, chrystal meth addicts and thiefs. Mr O'Flaherty is unable to sort this out without help because he is of limited capacity and has been taken advantage of by Mr Coward over the course of 10 years
According to Section 44 of the Mental Capacity Act 2005, offences associated with financial abuse include: • theft (cash)
• fraud by abuse of position (mismanagement of finances causing debt that Mr O'Flaherty will never be able to repay)• fraud by failing to disclose information (withholding bank statements and letters from debt collectors)• fraud by false representation (using a false name and taking out loans on Mr O'Flahertys address, as he was the designated key holder. Stealing post from Mr O'Flaherty and never paying back the loans)• blackmail (if you say anything to Mr Kruger he will surely end your relationship, call the police, have you arrested and put in prison)• forgery (taking out loans in his made-up name, musiusing Mr O'Flahertys address)• ill treatment or neglect. (getting Mr O'Flaherty arrested numerous times only for the charges to be dropped later on)
he has responded twice, even though the [police have said to NOT respond. I have asked him to not respond to anymore. I also advised his family to ignore any calls or texts sent by Mr Coward or his mother but to keep a detailed call log to be passed on to the met police
he has been contacted 3 times by telephone, 2 emails and 1 text
so there is nothing we can do at this point to prevent his family from contacting Mr O'Flahet's family? And the advice is that we should just ignore his tantrums and when he police comes tonight at 8pm report this incident as I have reported this to you and ask them to act?
okay - I am going to follow your advice. Since I have a 7 day trial I will contact you again, if needed. Many thanks
