Help! I need somebody!

“When I was younger so much younger than today…” Our next line to that song would have to be “things I once believed in now they all have gone astray!” And so would seem the case for many Americans today.

People paying attention generally feel helpless as our country proceeds down what many of us consider to be an incredibly dangerous path. But having your future looted by self-dealing opportunists is not an uncommon experience for targets of Involuntary Redistribution of Assets (IRA) acts via probate venues and/or probate instruments such as wills, trusts and guardianships.

Below is a letter recently posted at ElderAbuseHelp.org. This letter and recent exchanges regarding another New York state guardianship abuse case involving a young ward and his family serve as important reminders that IRA cases are not just about the elderly.

Dead, alive, old, young, healthy or not. These are the categories of people being subjected to asset looting. We’ve written in previous posts about the ignorability of this issue - from both the “can’t be bothered” public and elected officials theoretically accountable to their constituents.

IRA targets are desperate for help, but help is not on the way. Sites like EstateofDenial.com, ElderAbuseHelp.org and others will continue our advocacy efforts, but who knows to what avail. The response provided to this plea is sad, but completely truthful.

Just sounding the alarm one more time.
