27 Aug CASE STUDY 7 : Pennies From Heaven for Ms. Penny
Mr. Penny lived in his quiet home, on a quiet street, very quietly, for fifty quiet years. Obviously enough, Mr. Penny was a quiet man. He kept to himself. Not many folks knew much about Mr. Penny. He was so reclusive that upon his passing the County Coroner declared him a man with no friends, relatives, acquaintances and even in a report the Coroner called him a man without living heirs. This is what is known as an orphaned estate. During a drive to get lunch one of the ARP team members noticed on a street of well maintained yards, one that looked like a jungle. Something did not add up. Well, Mr. Penny did have an heir. ARP was unable to piece together the family tree internally and turned to its domestic private investigator who was able to identify Mr. Penny’s brother who moved to the East Coast twenty years ago. The bad news was that he had passed away also. What ARP found was that Mr. Penny’s brother had a daughter who was Mr. Penny’s niece, and she was alive and well. Ms. Penny. Ms. Penny was surprised to learn of her newly discovered mini fortune and told ARP that she was excited and thankful for them because she saw it as pennies from heaven. Ms. Penny was willing to participate in the deal and within weeks walked away with many of her late uncles keep sakes and a big satchel of pennies from heaven when ARP closed the transaction.
