Reviews Book Description Are you tired of the way you're living? Are you fed up with everyone trying to take your most valuable possessions--your money and assets--away? Are you sick of having creditors, the IRS, or a vindictive ex-spouse nipping at your heels? If only you could disappear without a trace...if only you could resurface in some exotic foreign place with a whole new identity and a brand-spanking new life. And on the other side, how would you like to track down that ex (and his assets) who owes you money? Want to know his tricks?

For most people, this is just a fantasy. But it doesn't have to be. In Hide Your Assets and Disappear, one of the nation's top-ten-rated private investigators, Edmund J. Pankau, reveals all the tricks of his trade to show you how to hide it all or find someone who has. An experienced tracker who has worked for the government to recover missing assets, Pankau explains step-by-step how to successfully get away or find someone who has.

Filled with vivid real-life stories of both successes and failures as well as an Internet research guide, this invaluable guide outlines exactly what you should know before you go, including the ever-increasing difficulties you will face as the world becomes more tightly linked through electronic networks. Pankau shows you how to pay attention to prevent slip-ups that can give you away, from birthday phone calls to magazine subscriptions to an off-the-cuff comment to a stranger. He prepares you logistically and psychologically to successfully make the transition to your new life and new self in a new world, and gives you the best information on how to go, where to go, how to live, how to behave, and even who to become once you get there.

Should I keep my assets here or move them abroad? How do I create a new identity? How do I stay lost? Can I ever go back? How can I avoid anyone who might be looking for me? And how can I find someone who's disappeared on me? How do people fake their own deaths? What can the government do to catch a concealer? Pankau has the answer for all these questions and many more, and provides the tiny, often overlooked details that can make the difference between lounging on a tropical beach or ending up on the wrong side of the law.

Whether you're in search of a new life or someone who has hidden their assets and disappeared and left you in the lurch, listen to Edmund J. Pankau. With his unique, entertaining, eye-opening guide, he shows you how to go from victim to victor.

The author, Edmund J. Pankau, ( , December 27, 1998 Who says you can't have it all? You can if you know how! If you ever wanted to get away from the grind, away from your problems or away from the rat race that many of us call a life, then this is the book for you! Every one of us some day reaches the point where we are ready to chuck it all out the window and walk out, for a few moments or for the rest of our life.

When you reach this point, don't just wander around aimlessly, get a grip and make a plan. Life is too short to waste on problems, especially when there are places to go and things to do that will make you feel like a new man, or woman, as the case may be.

Whatever the reason, if you want to get out of Dodge and take your wordly possessions with you, then you need to plan for it now. With a little knowledge and a few contacts, you can live a life of leisure. As a wise philosopher once said, the best revenge is living well!

P.S. Dont tell anyone about your plans. Remember, three can keep a secret, if two of them are dead!

Customer Comments Average Customer Review: Number of Reviews: 1 from PHILADELPHIA, PA , February 1, 1999 This book can make you immortal and immune to the government The following title has been written to inform the public of the upcoming possibility of losing one's own individual rights and freedom in the United States Of America, unimagineable as it may sound. This book, if read carefully with complete undivided attention, will give one the personal, keen, intellectual power to do as one wishes, to do anything one's heart and desire so craves and wants, out of need, nessecity, or lust, and get away with them each and every time. But these strategies must be practiced and assured that it is 100% effective, and it will! It is up to the individual's will power, and it definitely will!! ENJOY THE READING!

Art Bell interviewed him last week. Go to Art's website and find out how you can get the taped interview. He was an interesting person to listen to......he kept me awake all night!

I have the book " How to Dissapear"; I'm still here. I put a rock in my shoe (to cause a limp) and a wig on, but no one was fooled. I'm not ready to give up yet, though, I think this y2k thing might be the answer.
