Tidbits And Dead Ends

as told by Samantha Spade

Millionaire Joe Gamble’s untimely end by the hand of his friend Johnny DoGood brought some of Gamble’s weird quirks to light.  Abby is inheriting everything under Gamble’s Will and serves as the executor, too. 

She also will receive the $3 million from his life insurance that originally was supposed to go to his murderer (until I fingered DoGood).  His niece, Sweet, is just out in the cold.

Although she kept his home clean for him for seven years, one room was kept strictly locked, the inside of which Abby never even caught a glimpse of.  No wonder my lawyers got her to hire me to sort it out; the room was a fire hazard, filled with file cabinets and boxes, all overflowing with papers. 

So far I have tracked down about $57,000 worth of stock certificates and information about unknown bank accounts in the room.  I’ve also explored about $522,000 worth of leads that turned out to be dead ends. 

Now I’ve found a very interesting tidbit.  It says there was an account number at some brokerage firm opened in the name of Joe Gamble, as Trustee of the Living Trust of Joe Gamble Dated 2/19/2001.  I sense the need to keep detecting. 

Keep organized.  It’s the best defense against accidental after-death loss of the money and property you worked hard for all your life.  For guidance on preventing unnecessary shrinkage of your estate after death, call my lawyers at (815) 436-1996 for an appointment.
