Nephew Lost $100,000.00 of my money

About 4 years ago my wife and I agreed to allowing our nephew, who was then learning to become an investor to invest $30,000.00 of our savings.  We gave him $130,000.00 of our money with the instruction to NOT use the $100,000.00 just the $30,000.00 until we see how the investment was going.

Needless to say he not only lost the $30,000.00 but also $70,000.00 of the $100,000.00 we told him not to lose.

He had been giving us $2,000.00 a month dividend for over a year and sending us false statements sayin our money was growing.

When he told us he had lost the money the last statement he sent said we still had over $100,000.00 in our account.

Anybody have any suggestions as to what we can do legally?


Im 71 years old and had to go back to work and my wife is 70.
