I had a call from my brother yesterday -- wanted to know if I would talk to a friend of his daughter's, so I had her call me. The girl just lost her father last week and his mother 2 years before. Doesn't sound like the dad had much to leave her -- he didn't pay child support regularly, but he had a collection she is interested in and he had possession of some jewelry and a car that were passed down from her grandmother. The woman who held herself out as a platonic roommate is now claiming she had a "special" and close relationship with the dad.
Yesterday she was claiming he left her everything in a will (Dad told the mom -- his ex, he did not have a will just a week before he died). Today, when the cops escorted the daughter to the woman's house, she said she had disposed of the jewelry already the girl wouldn't get anything else. She didn't tell the cops she had a will. Didn't produce one. Instead, she told the cops the man who passed wasn't the girl's biological daughter, he wasn't on her birth certificate and she wasn't entitled to anything.
Now, anyone with half a brain knows that a claim like that is pretty easily unraveled, especially when the girl has her birth certificate. Anyone with half a brain would also realize that telling a different unsupportable story every time you turn around itself tells a story and pretty quickly lets people know who is telling the truth and who isn't.
We're trying to get the girl some local legal help. I hope she can at least get her grandmother's wedding ring so she can have her own wedding ring made from it as she had planned (she is engaged to a guy in the navy), but I hope this low-life woman gets what she deserves. Bad Karma! Bad Karma!
You couldn't see it, but I just laughed. I feel better now, but you can join me.
I hate scum bags.
