"Who have I
bribed? Which Judges? WHAT BULLSHIT!"
Private Guardian Jared E. Shafer
It's obvious that no law
enforcement agency in Nevada is willing
to expose our state to
the ridicule it deserves for allowing
this insidious form of
racketeering to take place
under the radar for over

LAS VEGAS - On September 30, 2010, private
guardian Jared E. Shafer charged one of his elderly "wards" for 1.5 hours
of his time to read Ripoff
Reports that he felt disparaged his good name. After reading hundreds
of complaints about himself and his crew, he wrote the statement "Who
have I bribed? Which Judges? WHAT BULLSHIT!" on his PFSN,
Inc. Invoice, and then charged the ward $375.00 for his aggravation.
On May 22, 2013, Shafer answered his own
questions; "Who have I bribed? Which Judges?" through his actions as a
private citizen ordering Clark County Family Court Judge Jon Norheim to
close the public hearing when tough questions began to be asked about a
deceased ward's missing $500,000. Keep in mind that Shafer is not
a public official or attorney. He's just a 1961 Las Vegas High School graduate
with friends in high places.
In a Family
Court video record obtained by INSIDE VEGAS that Shafer and Norheim
never wanted the public to see, Shafer stood up in the audience, and as
a private citizen business owner, bullied Norheim into throwing the public
out of the hearing after four attorneys asked the whereabouts of over $500,000
missing from one of Shafer's deceased ward's accounts. Just before he issued
his "order," Shafer can be seen staring at his office manager/secretary/bookkeeper
Amy Deittrick who was sitting to Shafer's right in the gallery.
This 1:26 sec. video record, and Judge
Jon Norheim's flaccid "Okay" in response to Shafer's demand for privacy,
speaks a thousand words.
After viewing the video, most people ask
why? This may be the answer:
Jared Shafer illegally
commingles funds from a company known as Signs of Nevada, LLC, with
funds from his "wards" in his PFSN, Inc. bank account. Commingling of ward's
funds is a violation of NRS 159.073 (III) (IV).
Hundreds of A-frame portable billboards
are owned by two of Shafer's closest associates, guardianship
attorneys Patricia Trent and Elyse Tyrell, who often represent Shafer
in Family Court disputes. Shafer's PFSN office manager/secretary/bookkeeper,
Amy Deittrick, is listed as their sign company's manager by the Secretary
Sign companies such as theirs have the
ability to make or break a judicial campaign by discounting the 8' by 12'
movable political signs to certain Judge, DA, and Attorney General candidates
during election season. The majority of Trent and Tyrell's signs now appearing
during this election season contain ads for Family Court and District Court
incumbent Judges, selected candidates seeking to fill court vacancies,
or attorneys wanting to replace less cooperative Judges.
Sources say that Shafer is the go-to guy
when it comes to cheap political billboards - a sure fire way to endear
himself to those with power over the lives and fortunes of his hapless
wards and their heirs.
Note that Signs of Nevada Manager Amy Deittrick's
PO Box 50790 is the same as Shafer's and Patience Bristol's which verifies
that Deittrick runs the sign business out of Shafer/Bristol's office located
at 5858 S. Pecos Rd,, Suite 500, in Las Vegas. Coincidentally, Shafer's
plead guilty to exploiting the elderly in October 2013, and is awaiting
sentencing on April 28, 2014 in the Clark County District Court of Judge
Elizabeth Gonzalez. Shafer has not yet been charged with a crime, and I
don't ever recall seeing Judge Gonzalez' name on any billboards owned by
Signs of Nevada, LLC, so its expected that Bristol will be treated like
the criminal she is.
And why would supposedly successful attorneys
like Trent and Tyrell be in such a business? The signs are stored off season
in dusty rattle snake and scorpion infested desert lots on the outskirts
of town. During political campaigns, they must be towed on flatbed trailers
to vacant lots and placed, something I'm sure Patricia and Elyse find joy
in doing when they're not in court possibly representing Shafer against
one of his wards, or an heir trying to recover a missing inheritance.
Political billboards are better than cash
when it comes to judicial elections, and the unlikely people to go to in
order to get those billboards on the cheap, also speaks volumes.
The last several months have not fared
well for Jared and his crew.
This 5:22 sec. INSIDE VEGAS video
by Mike Christ of a 24 year old PFSN, Inc. ward with cerebral palsy talking
about Shafer taking his house and inheritance, has gone viral:

Each passing week that Shafer and
his ilk are allowed access to the life savings of our elderly is one week
too many. Hopefully the exposure INSIDE VEGAS and the National Association
to Stop Guardian Abuse give to this "guardian" and his associates will
draw the attention of the United States Department of Justice, because
it's obvious that no law enforcement agency in Nevada is willing to expose
our state to the ridicule it deserves for allowing this insidious form
of racketeering to take place under the radar for over thirty years
