Karlin Subject: Re: Meek Stipulation Stock check $646,000

January 7, 2011 Rhonda: The Bank corp stock check cashed by Elizabeth Meek was in the amount of $646,482. You cannot account for the difference between the $646,482 and the $617,169 you state in the attached e mail were moved into TCD 566870? That is the exact amount almost to the penny of the buy in for the Pe Ji Ho Ta Indian Casino which has Robert Grigger Jones as a 1/4 partner. The money was invested in the spring of 2004. Just after Elizabeth cashed those stocks. As you are already aware I have handed copies of the check, as well as every document related to the litigation to the Santa Maria, California FBI field agent as well as IRS representatives. No one wants to come

forward and say why it took 4 years for the tax return to be filed, including your offices. http://calcoastnews.com/2010/12/gearhart %e2%80%99s-casino-%e2%80%93-the-finalgamble/ Those stocks were performing quite well considering the value in three months October 2003 to February 2004 increased almost $30,000. With a stock that lucrative one would question why Elizabeth meek would cash it out? Doesn't sound like a prudent move for someone who is designated by an attorney as the Trustee of his estate. You know the Bank corp stock was previously entitled Bank of San Bernardino and was definitely included in the 1996 trust (the Trust where Dad had named myself as the trustee?) Which of course leads to my next question, if the stock was in the 1996 trust why didn't Grigger Jones advise Elizabeth meek to bring a copy of the trust to the Bank when she cashed out the stocks? Instead he created the Trust Certification for the 1992 trust. Also, if the Bank of Hawaii never had money placed into the bank for the QDOT and now they are saying they were never an active co-trustee, then why did the estate pay for the attorney's fees to Bingham McCutcheon as well as Goodsill Anderson?

I have attached a page from the Goodsill Anderson billing statement reflecting discussions were taking place referring to the two 1st Amendments (the one supposedly signed in Hawaii and the one with the admitted forged signatures) Who provided the copies of the 1st Amendments to Goodsill Anderson (Judy Lee, Esq was the attorney of record for the Bank of Hawaii)? We have been asking Judy Lee this question for the last three months. She refuses to clarify this crucial question. Finally, did Elizabeth pay off part of the balance on the Arkansas judgment against the estate? The Judgment as a result of Elizabeth and Grigger Jones selling property in Arkansas that did not belong to the estate? The same property that had been our family (the Meek's that is) for close to 100 years? I await your reply. Thank you Nanci Meek (760) 413-5660

Dear jane. At one time yourself as well as your firm were entrenched in our fathers probate and audit and are most certainly accountable I would therefore appreciate your time and consideration regarding the attached questions. I have a case I am investigating in beverly hills in two weeks perhaps we could both set aside a time convenient to discuss my fathers probate and hopefully put this matter aside. I look forward to meeting you in person. Thank you. Nanci meek 760 413 5660

Dear Ms. Meek: All of my files on this are in storage and would have to be retrieved. I do not recollect details as this all occurred several years ago. I am undergoing some medical treatment that will keep me out of the office for two to three weeks starting this Wednesday. I will of course cooperate with any request from the IRS or the FBI for data.

Dear Jane. I am so sorry to hear about your health issues and certainly wish you a speedy recovery. In thr meantime have someone from your offices retrieve the files mentioned in your e mail and when we do meet after your recovery we will be a few steps ahead as far as putting this behind us. Again I wish you a speedy recovery. In the meantime is there anyone in your office who would be able to meet with me next week and grant me access to your files? Since you were paid by the trust I would assume you were working on behalf of the trust or were you working on behalf of the Bank of Hawaii? Let me know Thank you Nanci Meek original trustee of Elvin R Meek 1996 Family Trust. 760 413 5660

Dear Ms. Meek: California Business and Professions Code Section 6068 poses a very strict duty of confidentiality as to attorney-client communications. California Evidence Code Sections 950-962 impose strict attorney-client privilege. Even if I were subpoenaed to provide the data you have requested , I would have to assert those privileges. Therefore, I am forbidden to provide you with any off the information you have requested, nor will I be available to meet with you.

Please remove me from your email list as to this matter and do not call me as I will not be able to accept your calls.
