Well, at least the posts we made will likely be read by others truly in the same spot and needing financial advice. It is not an uncommon situation for older workers nearing retirement age to have trouble finding employment (except for the large inheritance part).

"Now I am 62, have moved to a very inexpensive town and have a financial plan and money from a recent inheritance to survive until the lord takes me home. I am officially retired from the world of paid work!"

Someone needs to be forced to go traveling, perhaps.

And yes and thank you to all the people who are caring enough to offer carefully considered advice to him--the fact that this is most likely a sad individual in many ways doesn't make your efforts wasted or make us suckers. The troll mirror reflects stupidity in only one direction, back on the troll.
According to the O.P., he also received an inheritance from at least one parent so that could be the earlier reference. The O.P. may or may not be a troll but so far I'm not convinced there's conclusive proof one way or another.

I read his first post on city-data a couple of times to see if it was a similar enough writing style or not to claim foul. I couldn't make a decision one way or another until I got to his second post on page 3 and conclude that we have ringer!

Very unique type of reveal that was also on display here after one of the conversations with the property management company.

Really? Same story from 5 years ago, clinched by using the same handle? You're not convinced?

The shame is that when someone comes here with a legit hard luck story, some will be reluctant to believe them because of a pathetic person like this who trolls the board.

You should be able to monitor the Probate court located in the county of your late Aunt's residence to see when a Probate case is opened for her by the PR.

In my state once the Probate has been opened, the Personal Representative is duty bound to notify all the devises/beneficiaries & heirs with a copy of the will. The next major event will be that the PR will need to share with the court a list of assets and valuations so that the appropriate probate fee may be calculated.

I'm now expecting an OP reply with a series of reasons as to why many of the above won't work or are 'complicated'.

I think we encountered a wormhole, and ran into 2012 version of OP.
All posts perfectly understandable now.

I suggest OP buy a boat big enough to live on, a real impressive sized boat... Great marinas in Alexandria.
Despite the fact that this whole thread is a joke, I wonder if you can really save any significant money by living in a marina in Alexandria? Everything there is so expensive I suspect (with no real proof) that it would still be significantly cheaper to live in an apartment in Richmond than on a boat in the DC area. Just curious.

Harley,

My interpretation of Gravity's comment to buy a big boat in a nice marina to save money was that it was a sarcastic comment to Forced based on the history of this whole thing.

I'm in your exact position after Aunt Virginia died @ 99 years and 9 months on earth. She never went anywhere or took any pleasures in life--and she took $125K in 1965 and turned it into $3 million after living expenses.

Such an inheritance allowed me to buyout my sister's half of our lake house, payoff a car and small mortgage. But I no longer have to draw on my 401K until minimum distributions are required at age 70 1/2--in 4 years. I also bought my daughter an inexpensive, but nice house and purchased a 5200 square foot foreclosed house for 25% under market value.

We are enjoying ourselves greatly, however we're really not doing anything we couldn't have afforded to do with our own financial resources.

OK, I'm thinking I got fooled. There's a banned-for-life troll on another board I'm on, who posted similar stuff on citydata, who lived in the DC area. Well, my intentions were good.

Though DD lived in that city for a couple years. It is nice and there are good looking marinas, bike trails, etc. wish I could afford to live there. (Not really, I find that weather oppressive.)

The joke is on anyone who tries to get some anonymous person or fictional creation to do anything other than just go away. Maybe give benefit of the doubt first time, then if strangeness continues, punt.

Of it waddles and quacks, what more does one need to perceive that it is a duck?
