team up with Trustee Candace Amborn
Bankruptcy trustee Candace Amborn who regularly has Mel Atkins appraise bankruptcy properties for her was assigned to their case.
Fearing that they wouldn't get a fair shake (which they obviously have not received) the Wachsmuths filed a complaint against Amborn with the Oregon State Bar Association (OSB).
The complaint listed the special relationship between Mel and Gayle Atkins and Candace Amborn
responded in their usual fashion, claiming they found nothing improper with Amborn
using Atkins to appraise properties and then for her to basically represent Atkins against the Wachsmuths.
continued the case and her
first step was to have the Wachsmuth's
The Wachsmuth's had already had a licensed real estate appraiser place the value at $95,000.00, but Amborn didn't trust this figure so she hired another appraiser with an indirect conflict who was subsequently rejected by the Wachsmuths.
then hired an uninterested appraiser who also placed the value at $95,000.00.
then filed suit against Dean Wachsmuth's father and Judy Wachsmuth's mother, claiming they had fraudulent conveyance's in that they originally loaned moneys to Dean and Judy to purchase their property fraudulently.
The loans are totally valid, so we can safely say that Amborn most likely did this for her business associate Mel Atkins.
In this writer's opinion this is not only bankruptcy fraud it is an absolute conspiracy, possibly criminal, between Federal Bankruptcy attorney Candace Amborn and Grants Pass realtors Mel and Gayle Atkins.
It's also disgusting for an attorney (Candace Amborn) to take bankruptcy (which is a principle taken directly from the Bible), a legal safeguard for people having debt problems, and turn that bankruptcy against the very ones it was meant to help.
Amborn hired attorney David B. Mills out of Eugene, Oregon to file the totally frivolous lawsuit against the Wachsmuth's parents and this same attorney is the one who placed the value of the property at $170,000.00, up from the true appraisal of $95,000.00.
It was most likely included in his
letter in a lame attempt to offer Amborn
a dash of protection, but actually anything Mills does on Amborn
's behalf is exactly as if Amborn were doing it herself.
They recently informed Amborn
attorney they were going to switch their chapter 7 bankruptcy into a chapter 13.
This case is actually a tragedy because the Wachsmuths
filed a legal and proper chapter 7 and Amborn
has forced them to pay when they should not have had to.
In our last edition we posted a $2,000.00 reward offer to anyone with information leading to either ethics charges or violations of any laws regarding Mel or Gayle Atkins or Federal Bankruptcy Trustee Candace Amborn.
Numerous calls have came in on Amborn
, which we are looking into.
One person claims Amborn
ignored forgery and fraud in a bankruptcy his
ex-wife filed and the evidence he
has provided to us and also to Amborn
is very compelling.
The reward still stands and "Friends" of Dean and Judy Wachsmuth have informed me that if there are more than one violation or charge against the Atkins or Amborn
they will honor those as well.
