The Moneyist: How do I protect my brother with autism from financial predators?

Dear Moneyist,

My brother has a mild form of autism, which means I am his financial manager. He trusts me implicitly and relies on me to manage his expenses and savings. As a matter of principle, I do not hold his passwords and anytime we transact from his accounts I go over to his house and walk him through exactly what we are doing.

My brother is well-loved and provided for by our family, but we’re concerned that he is a lamb among wolves and susceptible to scams and financial predators. For example, a total stranger once convinced him to pay her $200 water bill.
