After much research we found out about what happened. The people partnering with my husband did the majority of they fraud when my husband was in the hospital. My husband never signed certain papers but his father feels it was my husband who sold his stock . We had no idea until this year. My husband is battling cancer and he is devastated by his father turning against him. His father will not speak to him and hangs up on him every time he calls. We have never asked him for a cent and my husband did no wrong or fraud. My husband sent his father for twenty years a paycheck. This scam has hurt us and we stand to lose everything between the cancer and attorney fee's. We have found out my father in law changed his will and wrote us out. We have no idea who said what to him he suffered no damage only us. Do we have a defamation of character case. It is truly not about the moneyThis has hit my husband so hard he has given up We have a little ten year old son who is going to lose his father and his home in the near future, he is so frightened by all this. I have no idea who said what to my father in-law It must have been terrible for all this to happen and for him to lash out at a son while he is fighting for his life and needs a soft place to heal instead of hatred within a family.
I will add again for clarity : a son who sent his father over one hundred fifty thousand a year for twenty years, never asked to borrow a cent even when we now stand to lose our home over the fraud committed
against the corporation by many key people ( done while husband was in hospital for ten days and not back to office for six weeks)
We contacted my husband father's attorney in Florida to advise him we are starting a law suit on the fraud committed. We explained the stock issues and asked for help to prove the case. After one phone call to the attorney neither he or my husband's father ever spoke to my husband again. We were beyond shock we so counted on needed documentation support
My husband sister informed my husband of the will change, she was the other person who could have said something she and her children only are now named in the trust.
Very sad story for a man who gave so much and is gravely ill with cancer and needed support from his family.
