Mom Accuses Bankrupt Daughter Of Wiping Out Life Savings, Using Unwittingly Signed Deed To Sell Home & Pocket Proceeds
In Nashville, Tennessee, NashvillePost.com reports:
- Donna Jones, a former employee of admitted embezzler and Ponzi scheme operator Michael J. Park of Brentwood, appeared before the U.S. Bankruptcy Court [last week]. [...] As to claims by Jones that she had not transferred assets in the last three years, that [...] is in dispute.
- Martha Stinson, Jones' mother, says her daughter regularly deposited checks into her and her late husband's checking account only to move it back out within 24 hours. Stinson says that her daughter did not have power of attorney and that she trusted her daughter at the time. [...] Stinson, who now lives in a trailer home in Burns, was dealing with her husband's brain cancer, which proved fatal, at the time and did not question what her daughter told her. She now regrets that as her life savings has been completely wiped out.
- Another issue within the family, and questioned in U.S. Bankruptcy Court, is a quitclaim deed placed by Jones on her parents' home. Jones gained $25,000 from the sale of the house in 2008, but her mother states that her husband signed the quitclaim deed while undergoing intensive chemotherapy and did not know what he was signing.
