12 Steps to Financial Privacy – By Matthew Mullhofer

  • Never release your social security number.  Only release your social security number when it is absolutely necessary.
  • Use a corporation or another entity for major transactions.
  • Avoid writing checks because they leave an extensive paper trail.
  • When investing offshore, ensure that you are in compliance with all laws and reporting requirements.
  • Only disclose what is necessary to financial institutions.
  • Maximize the bearer transactions that are not reported under your name.
  • Use financial professionals that will keep your financial information confidential.
  • Attorneys are bound to keep all of your information confidential.
  • Always have your accountant work through your lawyer to insure confidentiality.
  • Use a post office box or drop box for mail correspondence.
  • Avoid using safety deposit boxes, use private vaults instead.
  • Prepare a living trust to bequeath your property.  This will avoid the high cost associated with probate as well as any loss of privacy.
  • Arrange your investments so that you can provide the least possible amount of financial information.

6 Ways Creditors May Discover Your Assets – By Matthew Mullhofer

  • Do not rely on secrecy or concealment to prevent creditors from learning about your assets.  You can be forced to testify under oath, and if you attempt to deny or conceal ownership you will be committing the crime of perjury.
  • With the use of computers and investigations that are available modernly it is not difficult for creditors to locate assets, including those that have been kept overseas.
  • You are only required to disclose your assets when a creditor (a) obtains a judgment against you, (b) when you are sued for punitive damages and the assets are relevant to the award, and (c) when you are involved in litigation involving the fraudulent conveyance and the assets are relevant to the discovery.
  • Creditors that are entitled to discovery of the assets of a debtor have great discretion in their examination and procedures.
  • Spouses can be forced to disclose their finances to a judgment creditor whether or not they are involved in the litigation.
  • Insurance companies may be required to disclose information about your assets to judgment creditors.
