I'm a 70yr old widower pensioner and offered to take care of my nephew for 7 weeks while his father was away on business in the USA.
Every night after I went to bed, my nephew started my computer and used my Debit card to spend on the internet twitch program.
He spent  £7600  which was my only source of money to subsidize my pension.
His father cannot afford to pay me and both my debit card and bank refuse to refund, telling me it was my responsibility to monitor my spending.
Perhaps it was partly my fault, but at my age I rarely used to check what was in the bank because I don't really  spend that much when it was just me living alone.

The nephew has now thankfully gone and I hope I never see him again, but I am stressed beyond belief, worrying about my future.
