Fraudulent Guardianships & Probate Courts (A Special Report)

The G-Man Interviews
(Rick Black)

National Investigator Alleges Attorneys and Judges Have No
Oversight and Are Making Millions from Families in Crisis

My guest for this installment is Rick Black, Director for Americans Against Abusive Probate Guardianship (AAAPG). Mr. Black left his job as an executive of a global textile company in early 2015 and now devotes himself to volunteering for guardianship reforms on a full-time basis.

He has investigated over 400 suspected fraudulent guardianship cases throughout the country as the intake specialist for the organization and has coined the phrase “Isolate the victim, defame legitimate family, and liquidate the estate” to describe the hallmarks of fraudulent guardianships. He has also exposed corruption in probate courts across the nation and helped thousands that fell victim to fraudulent guardianships.

In March of this year, he spoke at the National Forum on Financial Exploitation by Conservators, which was sponsored by the National Center for State Courts and the Department of Justice.

Mr. Black actively lobbies in Washington, D.C. for improved protections for vulnerable adults and was pivotal in promoting S178, the "Elder Abuse Protection and Prosecution Act", the nation's first adult guardianship oversight bill.
