This is about my work experience  about a person who called me yesterday who is planning to manipulate her partner’s estate plan which is why I wrote “Misplaced Trust.” Here is the story.  This is a client that insisted her boyfriend purchase a trust.  In the estate plan, she is receiving an apartment building that he owns which is worth over one million dollars and even more in euros. He has one son who he was planning on leaving money and another property.  Now suddenly, the man feels that his son has been disrespecting him and he wants the girlfriend to receive everything. This is exactly how the manipulation begins.  She put a bug in his ear that his son isn’t treating him right.  Then she reminds him of how well she takes care of him.  The rest is history.  However, in the State of California, this is against the law.  When the man passes, the son will sue and win.  She could end up in jail for manipulating him.  There is a chapter in my book about a woman from a foreign country who married a man for his money.  She did the standard manipulation  and went to an attorney she knew and he put a trust together for him.  When he passed she immediately went to a second attorney who coincidentally was friends was the first attorney and he processed the estate in record time.  His children received nothing because by the time they learned about the trust and his passing the woman was long gone and she and the two attorneys made a bundle. I believe  people need to be aware of the events that can easily occur in this arena. The Good Gus Series is available online at Kindle, Nook and Waterstones.
