I wish they would be truthful and talk about how guardians steal money.

Society in general is under the false perception that guardianship is related to honest, ethical, dedicated professionals who work tirelessly in the best interest of their ward.

In truth, in the majority of guradianship cases the guardian rarely does any work, the racket allows for fraudulent billing, the racket works in the best financial interest of - the guardian who owes the judge who appointed him/her to another case.

Wisernow said the TRUTH about the Guardianship racket. Unfortunately, by the time the family realizes how crooked the Guardianship SCAM is, we've been falsely accused of exactly what they are guilty of doing: exploitation of our loved ones and they have effectively filed their fabricated documents for 'the record' taken as GOSPEL by their crony black robed collaborator and we're prevented from even seeing our loved ones in their warehouses they call nursing homes. Soon as the money runs out, Mom
dies alone

And Familythatcares, guardians don't normally outright steal -- they mask the stealing by charging legal and administrative fees.
