We’ve all heard of divorcing people who financially victimize the ex by draining bank accounts and maxing out credit cards. Another frequent tactic is the fraudulent restraining order complete with a kick-out order to remove the victim from the house. That allows community and personal property to be seized by the liar with little to no recourse for the victim. And that is frequently accompanied by financial orders for the victim to keep paying for the home in which he or she can’t live any more.
Recently, we heard of a new and innovative financial abuse tactic, the car loan. How this works is that a lying fraud-perpetrating divorcing party gets a car loan on a car that has already been fully paid and was awarded to the other party.
