A power of attorney grants significant control and authority to one person over another, creating a fiduciary relationship. The holder of the Power of Attorney, called an Attorney-In-Fact, must act with good faith, fair dealing, and loyalty. While many attorneys-in-fact successfully perform their duties for years, the potential for financial abuse is great and is often committed by those closest to the elderly victim.
