Daughter Refuses to Help Homeless Parents Who Lost Money to Scams

Unsplash | Nick Fewings

My parents have made terrible financial decisions in the past and have lost everything. They have fallen for scams and lost tens of thousands of dollars. Now, they are homeless and begging me for money. I have about $100,000 saved up to buy a house, but they want a piece of the pie. They also want to move in with me, but my roommate and I agreed that visitation from friends or family is max a week to prevent resentment. I'm torn between helping them out and protecting myself. What should I do? Read on to find out.
