They had a fix for that. They used my sister-in-laws bank debit card to pay a $700 security deposit for new electric and water service and put it in one of their names so we could not turn it off again.One big question, with no water or power, are they still using the toilet? Is it on city sewer? I assume that there are no septic systems in Miami, and if they are getting water, and using it to flush a toilet, then there could be some charge for the sewage going out....
When I see new posts on this thread I am always hoping to read about these criminals being arrested and being held accountable for what they have done. Clearly they know how to work the system. Over the years I have a couple of friends who have gone down this path and pulled their hair out trying to get justice. I hope these slim get what is coming to them.
Their day will come.
With the technology we have today I would be very surprised if they did not leave some type of evidence. If they arrest three of them who we feel are the most likely, one of them will work a deal at the expense of the others. One of the things that really got to the the officer taking the report, they maxed out one of her credit cards that had a very low limit, smart move on her part. On the same day they maxed it out they called the credit card company to ask for a credit line increase. Needless to say the card company denied the request. The police requested a copy of the denial letter.
I was the executor of my aunt's estate in Miami-Dade County in 2008 and 2009. I'm looking at my aunt's will and there is no identification of the witnesses to her signature. The estate's attorney never mentioned it as a concern to me or that the probate judge had ever mentioned the need. The estate's attorney was also the attorney that drew up the will and was the notary that signed it.Apparently my sister-inlaw's will did not have the identification of the witnesses to her signature on the will.
All they needed would have been a copy of their drivers licences as identification and such identification noted on the will
He wrote the will for her in 1997.Woops! That sounds like Malpractice by the attorney who wrote the will...that's what they are paid for...the expertise NOT to make mistakes on simple, boiler plate stuff like that! If he/his staff were making those kinds of mistakes...probably 20 + years ago, a change of attorneys may be indicated. It's really not funny, but somewhere in the future, you may be able to smile about it!
Another twist to all of this today.Good luck to you!
Glad its working out for you. Still have they been arrested yet for fraudulent use of credit/bank cards? I would NOT let that go. If the local pd really isnt doing much, make a big stink with the DA.UPDATE!!
Yes this is still going on.
Covid has put a moratorium on evictions so that really tied our hands.
The moratorium is now over.
Our attorney went there this morning with three Sheriff Deputies and a tow truck to retrieve my sister-in-law's car. He gave them a verbal request to vacate. They indicated they need time to get another place. They've already had 6 months they've been living there for free. The attorney is petitioning the Probate Court to evict in two days. A Probate Court eviction is not backlogged like the other evictions are. We are having a 24 hr. security guard to keep an eye on the house until they are gone. I'll be glad when this is finally over.
