I have assets I need to protect immediately this week and

I have assets I need to protect immediately this week and need help from a professional in asset protection meaning someone with training in finance, tax/international law and/or accounting. Some background first about me.My former business partner was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder. The book our therapist had us read on this disorder was titled "I Hate You Don't Leave Me". That sort of says it all. While she was brilliant, gorgeous and creative, she was also deeply troubled emotionally... bi-polar too. When I grew weary of "her way or the highway" I chose highway. She threatened to destroy our business and did. She did a brilliant forgery of my signature and sold one of our properties that would have been valued today at over 200k. The sale price for that 200k asset? 5,000 thousand dollars. She did not think twice about destroying her own net worth so that I would have nothing. She is that troubled. Fearing losing everything, I decided to walk away from our business with no assets and no debt. She moved on with the assets and debt, officially closed our old business and transferred everything to her new business. Her lies and manipulation cost me more then a year of my life and more in attorney fees then I had paid in my lifetime.For about a year after we parted ways I learned that she somehow was able to ascertain to the penny, my funds in the bank and other private information as well. As I mentioned earlier she's brilliant, also tech savvy and a hacker. I have put all the protections into place that I have been advised to do by my tech savvy friends. I hope that put an end to her prying into my affairs but I'll probably never know. She at one time had friends that worked for the state that gave her classified information, and according to my attorney, did so in violation of privacy regulations. She's a gifted manipulator and makes friends easily so she can talk people into almost anything.FAST FORWARD TO TODAY.I want to protect my assets and have a sizable check in hand, less then 100k. I need to have access to the funds immediately as I have business accounts to pay on Thursday of this week. I want to put the funds somewhere where it can make money, if possible, but also want to have it on hand as a liquid asset when needed. MOST importantly I don't want her, or her friends that work for the state, or anyone to know I have these funds. I don't want to have to spend these funds defending myself against more lies and manipulation. Now I know how much WINNING in court really costs.I talked to a friend of mine who is a VP at a local bank and we talked about TRUSTS but he suggested I speak with a tax lawyer or the like.Last thing. I don't want to deposit the sum of the funds into a checking account for fear that would be too easy for her to discover as she did once before. Is there a way to have access to at least 5k by Thursday?When contacted I can fill in more details as I'm sure recipients of my monologue will have questions. THANK YOU!POSTSCRIPT: To the Dr. Of Urology that requested to respond, please opt out as I am seeking someone with more tax law and financial expertise.

I bought a motorcycle a few weeks ago from a big dealership.

I bought a motorcycle a few weeks ago from a big dealership. They sent the title documents to my local tag office. While there getting a tag, I noticed the signature on the bill of sale that they had sent did not look like mine. I got a copy made from the tag office to bring home and compare to my bill of sale. It was in fact different and had been forged. The numbers (amount financed...) varied a little bit. $210 to be exact. So I called the dealer. He said he "lost the original bill of sale and wanted to get my paperwork to the tag office as quickly as possible, so I could get my tag quickly. That's why he forged it...." He also said he would overnight new documents for me to sign that should basically match the original bill of sale. And for me to sign them and overnight them back. The whole thing seems really suspicious and kind of sketchy. What can I do, should I do, and basically what options do I have. Any advice will be appreciated. Thanks
