So far I have filed one appeal, and Judge Michaela Lauer from the Court at Hietzing is already backing away from her other court orders, so enormous is the evidence of fraud.
Unfortunately, this fraud does not seem to be an isolated case and millions of people in Europe could be falling victim to this scam. In fact, any elderly relative with any property can be in deep trouble if they go into hospital.
To see copy of the first part of the appeal with all the documents, faxes and evidence outlining the fraud in the case of my aunt, check out this link:
THIS INCLUDES A COPY OF JUDGE LAUER’S HANDWRITTEN APPLICATION TO HAVE BEEN PUT UNDER A COURT GUARDIANSHIP DATED JUNE 19TH ON THE GROUNDS I AM A “CRAZY CONSPIRACY THEORIST WITHOUT PROOF OF CLAIMS SHE IS MANIPULATING FILES AS WELL AS DOCUMENTS SHOWING HOW JUDGE LAUER MANIPULATED THE FILES TO REMOVE ALL THE PROOF OF HER AND DR STEPHAN PFLUGBEIL’S FRAUD:
The second part of the appeal involves a letter from me and an email from my brother where we state clearly we wish for a family member to be court guardian of my aunt . We were never ever given any chance to give our views. Neverthless, Lauer, appears to have justified her order appointing Ehrlich as court guardian by claiming that no one in the family was willing to take on the guardianship, another blatant lie on an official document.
What can be learned from this episode?
If you have an elderly relative who goes into hospital, do NOT assume they are in good hands but keep checking on every detail.
How does the scam work?
Elderly people going into hospital have to fill out forms and give an interview concerning what assets they have in the form of pensions, property etc as part of a “care plan.” If your elderly relative has any assets, then the chances are quite high they will never really leave hospital so easily again as happened to my aunt, who broke her arm in a mysterious incident just one day before she was due to leave.
Having bungled everything, the hospital will then claim they are under great pressure to get your elderly relative to a home and they will chose the most outrageously expensive and isolated one, but not inform her or family members about the costs or that they have entered themselves or their allies onto the title deeds of the property.
So, always check the terms and conditions and object immediately in writing, keeping a copy.
Also, always stay alert that a court guardian (Sachwalter) has not been appointed without your knowledge or permission by the hospital personnel.
The only person who will be officially notified by the court (at least in Austria) will be your elderly relative. If they are in the hospital, they might never get the letter as appears to be the case with my aunt.
Yet the appeal timeframe is 14 days once someone at the hospital signs for the receipt of the letter (at least in Asutria).
Make it clear from the outset in writing that there is a family relative willing to be the court guardian and insist on full consultation at every stage. Keep a copy of this fax for your files.
Once a court guardian has been appointed, you and your elderly relative have literally no more rights, not even to access the files and find evidence of abuse of process.
If your elderly relative does find themselves under a court guardian order, expect their property to be sold to pay for the expensive home or for some debt at a low price. Expect your elderly relative to have a short life expectancy.
