Hello All, I have a serious problem, and need some advice. Somebody has stolen a gift card we gave our Mom for Mother's Day! My parents live in a nursing home, so you can't lock their room. She knew she put it up in her purse. We went out for dinner that Sunday, and it disappeared. Finally, we called the store corporate office, and sure enough..it has been cashed. This ticks me off! And it really makes me sad too! Now what do I do? Any chance of getting the money back? They know the date, store, purchases, and may have video of the person using the card. We have a small safe in the room, but she didn't get a chance to put it up. And now we wonder if that is any good, because apparently the creep has been tearing up the room when they are out, and they took the key to the safe! We got another key, but I don't know if that was a good idea either. Going in to admin and accusing the staff without proof will be hard. The thief may have given the card to bf/gf and might make it even harder to trace. I also wonder if they catch the person, I'm sure they will get fired, and will they possibly sneak back in and just continue, or do something worse...:unsure: We hate to keep all their money, because they need to feel independent, and have some cash on hand to buy things. The fact that Mom had just opened the card, but did not put it up makes me think that somebody may be going thru everybody's room...and especially we they know the residents are out for the day. Any suggestons?
