Example of Plan #1
Sam, a private investigator, is contacted by attorney Aardvark who wants to know if you have enough assets to make it worthwhile to sue you. Sam flips on his computer, pours a cup of coffee, and dials into the database service that searches nationwide for real estate ownership. He keys in your name and Social Security number, but the screen says “No Matching Files Were Found.” Your home and vacation house in the name of ABC Trust #4006 are not located in the search. Next, Sam contacts the agency that provides searches for bank and brokerage accounts and again-no luck. Since there is no record linking you to the trust account, a computer search of the customer accounts at every firm will produce no successful hits. At this point-with no real estate or financial accounts-he calls the attorney and tells him to find a better lawsuit prospect.
