Forgotten Fortunes

Forgotten Fortunes by Pam Simmons

People hide their money!Since the beginning of time and still to this day people have hidden their valuables for safekeeping. If you ask yourself why… Here are a few reasons.

War TimeWar time has caused many people throughout history to rush and hide their most valuable possessions (Gold, Silver, Cash, Jewelry & Paintings) in their homes and on their property, for safe keeping. After the war some were able to recover their valuables, many were not as fortunate.

Banks or financial institutionsMany individuals who grew up during the depression are hiding their money. They fear they may experience what their family went through before them. So they hide money as a way to feel secure.

Y2K… Do you remember the hype?Do you remember the excitement about the year 2000 (Y2K) and what would happen if the power grids failed, banks would close and the only money in circulation will be that in the pockets and secret hiding places of people. Credit and debit cards will not work. Money would be frozen.

Crazy to think that only eight years ago people feared the worst and most likely took out all their money from the banks and bought gold & silver coins and hid their life savings until the fear of the Y2K was over. That being said how many put their money back in the bank? And how may have died and to this day their fortune is hidden somewhere in their home or on their property. This is just one of many reasons why people would hide their valuables.

Some people didn’t trust their spouseHusbands and wives hide their money & valuables from each other in order to have a safety net encase of a sudden break up.

People hide money and valuables because they don’t trust their familyThis is the same situation as the above example. There always have been and always will be internal money problems with some families, and for some, hiding their money so that no family member knows about it is the answer… some take it to their grave!

Many people hide money with the intention of giving it to their family or spouseUnfortunately they die suddenly without ever telling anyone about their secret hiding spot and the money is never found. Happens all the time!

Conclusion:Before there were banks in North America and still to this day people have buried and hidden their money and valuables in their homes & yards.

Y2K has come and gone, but next up is December 21, 2012 it is fast approaching and many believe it is the beginning of the end of our world. This will have people hiding money and supplies, gold, silver and munitions to be prepared for whatever might come.

I believe that a product like My Life’s Info is important to document the decision to hide money along with all the other important information of your life. So much money and property is lost to families because there is no record of it. If you hide money use my product, if you suspect your family has hidden money call in a company like Forgotten Fortunes
