I am going to attempt to make this long story as short and concise as possible. 1.5 years after my separation from my ex wife I met a beautiful woman which I fell in love with. Our relationship lasted 3 years where she lived with me. She moved down here with 2 suitcases and 2 kids and no money.I care for her and the kids and in the process of going thru divorce myself she talk me into buying condo under her name for her mom to stay and also manipulate her way into having me invest $ with her with the clear understanding who was the righteous owner of it all. I soon realize she was draining me financially with her reckless spending. She is extremely manipulative, dishonest, untrustworthy, heartless and calculated. At the split of our relationship, she had me kicked out of my own home based on a bogus restraining order, stole multiple items from my home ( have receipt etc...) filed a fraudulent insurance claim after burning her car down and sold my work vehicle that had been transferred to the company she was sole owner but that I was working for. Couple years have gone by and she is still playing games and refuse to let me have my assets back. I have a huge collection of her lies, deceptions, constant money request and of her very immoral behavior. My attorney filed a lawsuit for: 1-unjust enrichment regarding the townhouse she didnt contribute a dime for but that her relatives still lives at. ( 48 months no rent ever paid), 2-count seeking equitable lien on the said property ( paid 40k and invested 70k in remodeling, all my funds) 3-conversion (all items stolen from my property 35-40k) 4- count for trespass due to the false ex parte restraining order. 5- malicious prosecution. Also multiple other counts regarding money I invested in her newly formed company that I never got back .( 75k+) Soon after we separated (2weeks) she left the country for a period of 1 year spending all her new money. A few months after her departure we communicated and she was apologetic and convince me to meet her in south east Asia where she would sign back my assets... obviously she didnt. Another year go by and I finally filed a lawsuit against her. Again she contacted me wanting to have an agreement but it fell thru. I resumed lawsuit and again 2 months ago she contacts me wanting an agreement. We negotiated for a day, agreed on terms, I wrote the agreement, to her request 5 times and emailed her every time. Attorney drafted a formal copy, forwarded her attorney which acknowledge that it was in fact what she wanted. We canceled deposition of her. Last minute request she wants me to change the agreement where she is to receive 2k right away from me. Attorney makes the changes. Getting closer to getting a signed agreement with a multitude of text messages from her confirming her agreement. She pressured and pressured me for 5 days to give her the 2k which i originally refused until agreement was signed but felt so confident it was a done deal that I let her have it. Needless to say she deposited the check and hours later reneged on the agreement unless i double the offers on it. My attorney filed motion for sanctions to be heard by judge promptly. As an affirmative defense I forgot to mention that she had filed these defenses and counterclaim: 1- unclean hands,perjury, fraud(lied in my divorce, lied to my creditor, lied to the court, lied to irs etc....all bullshit) and her counterclaim are as follow: 1- defamation( i apparently called her a gold digger and a thief (privately)) 2-blackmail ( unfounded) 3-identity theft ( I ran the business she owned and had permission to make purchase with atm card, was also the qualifier contractor) 4-interception of wire communication(we used same computer) 5-forgery(unfounded) 6-Conversion(unfounded) 7-fraud Bot***** *****ne is this woman is a con, theif, narcissistic person, criminal, manipulator etc... Simple truth is she is good looking, feels entitle to money I had when I met her and will do and say anything to defraud me of my last bit of money. She constantly tricks, manipulate,demand money etc...She is disable and receive SSA benefits ( Arthritis!), is on medicare, her kids on medicaid and free lunch, her Mom on disability, her sister delivered baby thru medicaid fraudulently. Yet all this while driving a brand new BMW and living by the beach.Did I mentioned she hasn't had a job in over 12 years!!! This is not her first trial where she is involved into a money issue. Chaos and drama have been everywhere she walks. Myself, Also immigrant like her (Im from Canada and she was from south america)came to this country with also 2 suitcases but I worked my ass off, raised a family, had successful business, worked very long hours and had excellent credit >780 for 15+ years. Never stole a dime from anyone, always paid my workers, vendors etc. Additionaly, took her on 12+ trips + much more. My home is foreclosing and creditors after me What would you think a jury trial would deliberate?
