If I didn't know better I'd think my cousin was joking.
She just was appointed guardian over my aunt (her mother) and, along with an attorney from the Protective Services Department of Pensylvania, claims that I borrowed $5,000 from her mother and never repayed the loan. They are demanding payment.
Fortunately, this is a complete fabrication and I will obviously try to explain that three years ago my aunt borrowed $5,000 from me so that she could move to a new nursing home while waiting for her escrow money from the previous nursing home to get properly credited to her account. If I'm luncky, I can probably get my bank to make a copy of my cleared check, payable to the nursing home. And maybe the administrator of the nursing home will have a record of receiving my check. In the meantime, is there any immediate cause for alarm? My cousin lives in Texas, my aunt lives in Pennsylvania, and I live in New York.
Your bank statement with that transaction will prove the amount you gave and that it was received by her. The burden of proof is theirs. Bank statements by either side should settle this quick.
