Signs Your Husband Is Hiding Money
August 27, 2014 Leave a comment
You may have good reason to be suspicious if your husband:
• Maintains complete control of bank account information and online passwords.
• Is secretive about financial affairs.
• Owns a P.O. box or private mail drop box, which receives account statements and bills.
• Has meaningful unreimbursed business account expenses.
• Deletes one or more personal financial programs, Quicken or Quickbooks.
• Says the computer containing important financial records has mysteriously “crashed.” Then, he removes the hard drive for a data retrieval attempt, and it’s never to be seen again.
• Acts pushy when obtaining signatures on important documents, like tax returns and deeds. “I need to get this to our accountant today,” he insists.
• Proposes an execution of mutual durable power of attorneys for “estate planning” purposes.
• Enjoys out-of-town business junkets with his befriended, slippery financial advisor.
• Develops SIDS (Sudden Income Deficit Syndrome). “My business is failing” suddenly crops up.
• Suffers an income decrease without a corresponding reduction of expenses.
• Binges on unusual purchases of flashy items, such as a car and jewelry.
• Reports a dramatic decrease in value of marital and/or business investments.
• Owns multiple cell phones or numbers over a relatively short period of time.
• Makes frequent trips to countries with relaxed banking laws.
• Exhibits childish greed and claims of entitlement.
• Makes unusual purchases of toys or art that could be sold later.
• Starts drawing on large amounts of debt.
• Is involved in drug abuse.
• Gambles more frequently than usual and is placing money “on account” with casinos.
• Opens multiple business or personal bank accounts without obvious reasons for having that many.
