Mum's holiday romance left her heartbroken and penniless
DEAR DEIDRE: MY mum fell in love with a waiter she met on holiday in Tunisia five years ago and as a result is now homeless.
I knew he wasn’t an honest man.

He’s 35 and she fell for him. She is nearly 60. I’m her son and am 30.
My dad died seven years ago and Mum went on holiday with a friend to have a change of scene.
Instead, she fell in love with this man who has scammed her.
He moved over here, got his hands on her savings then got her solicitor to put his name on the deeds of the house. I think her solicitor acted unprofessionally.
He forced my mother to sell the house and took most of the proceeds.

She can’t afford to buy another house. She’s staying with me in my flat.
I’m heartbroken for her.
DEIDRE SAYS: Oh dear, your poor mum.
These people are clever and manipulative. Your mother was so flattered by his attention, she went along with it.
Report this scam through Action Fraud (actionfraud.police.uk, 0300 123 2040). She is not alone in falling for this sort of thing and I hope she can find support.
If her solicitor acted unprofessionally, she can take things further through legalombudsman.org.uk (0300 555 0333).
