Thanks for all your heartfelt support and helpful suggestions! It means a lot. Afrikanman, I will post an overview of evidence, but will black out names so I'm not targeted in a lawsuit at this point. I have tons of incriminating evidence, but I've been unable to get any authorities to pursue criminal action. I'm hoping to change that, but have been turned down at every turn. Still, I visited the FBI in person and I'm working on a complaint to the IRS regarding hidden assets, since the sale of stock was never reported on my grandaunts taxes, and interest on accounts was not reported to the IRS. Thanks, ABibleStudent for the info about the IRS complaint regarding deceptive fundraising practices. It's certainly worth a try.
Here's an overview of just a portion of the evidence I've collected in one of my appeal letters:
Exploitation Scheme Involving Wells Fargo Advisors and Jehovah’s Witnesses
Mary “Irene” xxxxx, 96.
This documented case study is the result of an investigation made by Irene’s
grandniece, NM, after she witnessed Irene being deliberately
neglected and literally starved to death by a group calling themselves
Jehovah’s Witnesses (“JW”). NM uncovered substantial evidence revealing that representatives of Wells Fargo
Advisors worked in concert with members of this group to embezzle more than one
million dollars from Irene’s accounts over the course of eight years.
two Wells Fargo bank accounts opened in Irene’s name, only one account had an
account agreement on record, as documented in Business Declaration records.
agreement was for an online premier management account (PMA) offering online access to all of Irene’s Wells Fargo
accounts, including linked accounts at other banks; yet Irene never owned or
used a computer.
weeks later, Irene signed a Power of Attorney naming two of the group members,
witnessed by the same Wells Fargo Advisor who opened the PMA account, xxxxxxxxx.
The Power of
Attorney was notarized by another Wells Fargo advisor, xxxxxxxxxxx.
Wells Fargo advisors cashed out a series of accounts totaling at least
$50,000 for members of the group as “payable on death” accounts just two weeks after
Irene’s death; yet no signed beneficiary documents or account agreements were
deposit and debit tickets for many accounts revealed Orlando transaction
stamps, occurring over a period of eight years; yet Irene lived 2.5 hours away
in Boynton Beach, did not drive or own a car, and several Wells Fargo branches
were located in her neighborhood. xxxxxxx was the banker appearing on a number of these tickets.
has yet to produce subpoenaed records for results of an elder abuse
investigation for a claim filed by Irene's grandniece in November 2012 or un-redacted safe deposit
has yet to produce complete, un-redacted copies of IRS 1099-INT statements from
Wells Fargo produced notarized business records statements where opening and closing dates for
accounts differ from interest statement records produced under subpoena.
produced two sets of interest statements for the same time period for a single
CD account which revealed very different activity and balances over that
transfers were made from this same account, including a single $100,000
transfer; yet Wells Fargo cannot produce general ledger documentation for these
transfers and refuses to provide receiving account information.
did not report interest earned on a number of accounts missing account
agreements for at least five years.
did not report interest earned on the accounts cashed out by Wells
Fargo Advisors in 2012 to the IRS.
discovering her grandaunt’s condition, NM questioned the home aide about Irene’s
sudden decline. The aide described
finding Irene collapsed 6 days earlier after a weekend of neglect and a drug
overdose. When Irene’s grandniece reported
the abuse to police, the JWs falsely claimed that Irene was dying of cancer, then
falsely accused Irene’s grandniece of
assaulting them. The police removed
Irene’s grandniece from Irene’s side as she lay dying, and Irene was dead
within 36 hours. No family member was
informed of Irene’s death, and she was immediately cremated, destroying the
evidence of physical abuse and misuse of drugs.
learned that Irene had recently signed a Power of Attorney document naming two
of the JWs in case of illness, and had replaced family members with another JW
serving as personal representative of her estate. Medical and financial records were denied
family members, and expensive legal assistance was required to conduct the
investigation. Evidence of significant
financial abuse by the JW Power of Attorney in the months prior to Irene’s
death was clearly documented, but the JW personal representative refused to
pursue a suit against her on behalf of Irene.
According to his sworn testimony, the JW personal representative was the
only male present when a 911 call was made to police reporting an alleged
disturbance by Irene’s grandniece; the male caller identified himself as
Irene’s late husband. Medical records
documented numerous instances where the JWs posed as Irene’s daughter and
granddaughter; Irene was childless. Further
substantial and undeniable evidence of wrongdoing and embezzlement of more than
one million dollars involving JWs and Wells Fargo Advisors insiders was uncovered
during the investigation. To date, however,
police and the state attorney’s office refuse to follow up. The police involved were from Boynton Beach;
many are currently under indictment for corruption.
here is not to recoup money stolen, but to prevent these criminals from imposing
their well-planned exploitation and abuse scheme against other victims. The JWs involved in Irene’s abuse have
testified to “caring” for other elderly members of their congregation. Given
the involvement of financial professionals and the billion-dollar JW corporation
(Watchtower and Bible Society), as well as the use of sophisticated methods of
embezzlement, money-funneling, and medical interventions, it’s clear that these
criminals have perpetrated this scheme before, that past victims are likely,
and that this method may be in use by other JW congregations across the country.
Any help or resources people can provide will be greatly appreciated.
