DISABLED CONTRACTOTR FRAUD VICTIMS NEED BOTH FINANCIAL AND HOME/DESIGN ASSISTANCE TO GE APPROVED HOME PLANS TO THE SKAGIT COUNTY PLANNING AND PERMIT CENTER. THE SKAGIT COUNTY PERMIT CENTER AND IS THREATENING FINES AND POSSIBLE PROSECUTION IF WE DON'T SUBMIT APPROVED BUILDING PLANS BY SEPTEMBER 1 2006. I have tried to contact HUD, but I am told we are "over income" by their guidelines. My husband is a disabled veteran who will need to have major surgery very soon. I am also disabled from a medical treatment , but still pending a social security hearing and have no income at this time. I think this whole ordeal began because we got married and that made us "over income" by HUD and other government standards. We can't make it much longer. Our credit cards are mounting rapidly just trying to keep this place, buy food and attempting to pay the bills. My husband now (boyfriend then) hired a licensed and bonded contractor, since I was awarded this home from a divorce settlement and then found out the foundation was caving in and the fireplace was unusable. The contractor is Erick H. Millholland dba WLAM Construction and Roofing from Arlington, Wa. We have heard that after Washington state Labor and Industries suspended his license in mid December 2004 after several members of L & I and a person from the Mount Vernon permit center came to our home to see the horrible condition the contractor us to live in. The contractor left our home in a "demolition state" without a kitchen, bath or even running water. We are currnetly living in a tent in the main living area since the contractor took the wallheaters out. Erick H. Millholland lost his contractor license mid December 2004 and now has fled the state. We can't get financing to do the desperately needed repairs to make our home safe and up to current codes, since the house is not finished and we don't have enough income. We are the victims of a horrendeous crime yet we can't get any help from anyone. I believe we are all on this earth to help each other during both good times and the "not so good" times. I never thought I never thought I would be in this situation, since I was always a hard working woman with an education, but now I am disabled with no income. The contractor did not get any building permits nor did he build anything up to current standards, most of the materials were used or substandard. The roof is not structurally sound and the electrical and plumbing, is not up to code and poses a risk to us as occupants. If we can't live here or get any help from someone, we will be homeless and disabled. I feel that we are "falling between the cracks" of a system that is supposed to help people during their time of need. I am at the point almost giving up, since we cannot get help from any government agency. Is there anyone in our local building industry or housing agency who can help us? I believe we are all on this earth to help each other during both good times and the "not so good" times. Thanks Ed and Cheri Foote

More unpaid bills ($300 for someone to come and X-ray the foundation of the home and garage. We have discovered the ex has hid many other assets from me as well and possibly from the IRS also. I have tried to contact HUD, but I am told we are "over income" by their guidelines. My husband is a disabled veteran who will need to have major surgery very soon. I am also disabled from a medical treatment , but still pending a social security hearing and have no income at this time.

The ex then even turned our son Matt against me. I guess I didn';t realize how deceitful he could be. He even forged my name on several large day trading accounts without my authorization. At this time, I have discovered that the ex has cheated me out of at least 100K and probably more. He hid these assets from me and my attorney before during and after our divorce and probably from the IRS as well. Thanks Ed and Cheri Foote

NEED A HONEST GRANTWRITER (PRO BONO??) ASAP DISABLED FRAUD VICTIMS By Cheri and Ed [edit this page] [show me this page as others will see it] [change picture][close] Posted on Apr 18, 2006 (modified on Apr 22, 2006) NEED A HONEST GRANTWRITER (PRO BONO??) PLEASE NEED FINANCIAL AND LEGAL HELP ASAP TO HELP DISABLED FRAUD VICTIM ASAP / NEED BOTH FINANCIAL AND LEGAL ASSISTANCE OF AT LEAST GIVE AN ATTORNEY A RETAINER AND PAY LOTS OF BILLS WE CAN'T AFFORD TO PAY. HE HID MANY ASSETS DURING OUR DIVORCE AND I AM PERMATELY DISABLED WITHOUT MEDICAL OR SUPPORT. _ DESPERATE FOR HELP PLEASE!!!! Our situation has becaome worse. More unpaid bills ($300 for someone to come and X-ray the foundation of the home and garage. We have discovered the ex has hid many other assets from me as well and possibly from the IRS also. We really need help to get an attorney and a forgery expert , one wants a 10K retainer and I also need someome in the California area who can sign an affidavit of forgery. MY EX HUSBAND FORGED MY SIGNATURE AND HID ASSETS DURING OUR DIVORCE. I AM PERMATELY DISABLED WITHOUT MEDICAL OR SUPPORT My ex husband forged my signature on a joint day trading account for 24 K weeks before I left him. He then opened up another day trading account in his name two days before our divorce became final. Both my new husband and I are disabled. We are going to need both financial and legal assistance to retain an attorney and a forgery investigator to freeze any assets he may still have, that still should be joint accounts, but he converted to his private accounts. I will also need a family law attorney to set the judgement of .the Jaussaud divorce/ # D03-03-445 and hope to reopen our case. Our divorce became final February 01, 2004 in Contra Costa county, Ca. in Martinez Ca. We both had attorneys, but the Ex (husband) was contacting me by email behind my attorneys back instead of going through the proper legal channels. I had recently come off chemotherapy and feel that I was taken advantage of by both my ex husband who took advantage of my mental and physical state. who began forging my signature and hiding assets months before I left him. I am still disabled, since I completed the treatment on June 3, 2003. Both my husband and adult son threatened, lied and coercied me to not ask for spousal support.and medical coverage. I was told if I didn;t sign the document that his attorney made up I would never see my son again. I was disabled both then and now and did not comprehend the implications of signing that document. Just recently, I have discovered that my ex husband, Joel had forged my name on a 24K check to take money out of a community day trading account, . The Ex has forged my name on several documents during our marriage of almost 25 years without my authorization.. I guess the exhusband thought marriage gave him a right to forge my signature. I did not get any spousal support or any medical coverage in the divorce settlement and we cannot afford one now, since we are trying to live on one disability income. While doing my 2004 taxes, we discovered he had emptied a joint checking account also. It seems he was day trading and hiding assets behind my back for several months before our date of seperation, on June 3, 2003.. Joel and his attorney Gregory Stone came up with a divorce document that I felt pressured to sign if I ever wanted to see my son again... At that time I didn't even realize the implications of signing that document, The divorce decree said that I was no longer disabled, (WRONG again) I am still disabled due to the effect of the chemotherapy which I began on October 4, 2002. As far as we can figure it appears he has failed to disclose these assets and LOTS more. Can someone please help with the forgery the ex did in the weeks before I left him. This is not the first he has forged my signature during our marriage of almost 25 years. It appears that he took money out of joint accounts and then after the divorce he put money in day trading accounts only. The ex is living in Contra Costa now. I have contacted both the police and an investigative deputy in Martinez, Ca. So far the police have said it's a civil mattersince we were still married. Isn't that a felony in California? Thanks Ed and Cheri Foote (Jaussaud)
