Well, I can tell you one thing; my spidey senses red-lined when I read the part about the parents contacting you (and not the girl). In my mind this
does not bode well at all! Just about any way you look at this there's something wrong. I would recommend being extremely careful
you proceed! Seriously.
At a very minimum it would be worth spending the money to talk with an attorney to find out:
- What you can and/or cannot discuss with this girl
- What the ramifications are of having a discussion and/or even contacting this girl
- What potential liability you incur by discussing this with the parents (and whether you should even accept any further calls from them at all).
Even if you don't follow the attorney's advice at least you'll have piece of mind and understand the risks better.
That the parents run a successful healthcare business for the elderly would suggest they are very likely acutely aware of financial liability through
relationships and collateral responsibilities. Translated; they are probably keenly aware of how to extract every single cent from you for the next
couple of decades. They can probably also attach any assets you have now, or may have in the future.
Be very, VERY, careful here. This situation is just weird enough to really turn into a major
problem for you for a very long time. Equally,
it could turn out to be nothing, but the potential negatives far outweigh the positives based on what you know right now. All you have is a single
picture, but you don't know if the child has some health issue(s) which may require staggeringly expensive healthcare over the long term.
Remember these words (sadly they are often more accurate than we'd like to believe)..."No good deed goes unpunished"
You seem like a pretty upstanding guy. Don't let this bite you in the backside in a way which might affect the rest of your life. Seriously.
Something to think about.
