Customer Question
CLEAN MY HOUSE UP AFTER...
ONE MARRIED G.DAUGHTER WITH BOY'S 5 & 2 YR'S OLD WAS TO CLEAN MY HOUSE UP AFTER MY WIFE PASSED AWAY. WHAT SHE DID WHEN I WAS NOT HOME WAS CLEAN ME OUT!!!. NO CLEANING OF MY HOUSE. HER HUSBAND, WELL KNOWN BY FAMILY AS BEING V.FRUGAL, MUST BE HELD PARTLY RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS. SHE STOLLED MY WIFE'S JEWELRY AND TOOK ANYTHING SHE COULD CARRY OUT THE DOOR. SHE WENT THROUGH EVERYTHING IN MY HOUSE INCLUDING V.PERSONAL THINGS. JUST ANYTHING SHE COULD GET MONEY FOR, INCLUDING MY LIFETIME COIN COLLECTION. AND INTO MY SAFE. I WAS GREATLY SURPRISED BY HER ACTIONS BECAUSE I ALWAYS THOUGHT THE FIVE G.CHILDREN WERE ALWAYS HONEST.MY WIFE & I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN FINANCIAL GENEROUS TO ALL THEM ESPECIALLY THIS ONE. YET I FEEL FOR HER IN A WAY BECAUSE SHE HERSELF HAS NO MONEY AND THE SIMPILEST OF NEEDS. OF COURSE I'M NOT PLACING ANY LEGAL ACTIONS OR CAN I EVEN FILE AN INSURANCE CLAIM. SO, WHAT IF ANY CHANCE OF RECOURSE DO I HAVE OPEN HERE? THANK'S

Dear Customer,

I am very sorry to learn of this situation, and my sincere condolences for the loss of your wife.

Unfortunately, the very best course of action to get resolution here is to make a police report - you were robbed.

You can make an insurance claim for the loss (even without a police report) but without the report it will make it harder to prove the loss (the carrier is more likely to approach this as it being a "gift") - but rather than simply disregard the potential claim, you can certainly file one anyway.

You may want to start by simply letting the individual know that you are aware that they took your property, and that you would like it back, if you receive all of it back you are willing to forego legal action against them. I understand that this is probably not something you want to consider in the wake of losing your spouse, and in dealing with family, but you were victimized by someone (apparently a couple of individuals) who showed no respect for you in this time of loss, and at a minimum you should have all of your items returned and accounted for.

Ultimately how you handle the matter is up to you, but the above is the outline for what you have to work with.

Again, I am very sorry to learn of this situation.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
