I'm a beneficiary dealing with a case of Power of Attorney

Customer Question

I’m a beneficiary dealing with a case of Power of Attorney fraud/Estate litigation in Ontario, where the POA/Executor has acknowledged taking most of my mother’s funds while acting as POA, but not disclosed the full amount taken. We know confidentially from the bank that there are assets still not revealed that were in joint accounts held with the deceased. We don’t know the amount of the assets, only the date at which the accounts were opened and closed, and don’t know whether it’s worth the expense of a court order to obtain bank records which they will oppose, and which will take a long time and considerable expense to obtain. We don’t want to get the bank employees in trouble for having revealed this, and can’t use the information in court anyway, but can we suggest we are aware of these additional hidden assets in settlement negotiations? If so, how much should we say we know?
