NE Jackson Woman Indicted for Check Forgery

A Northeast Jackson socialite was indicted for check forgery in July.  A Hinds County grand jury indicted Ellen Anglin for forging a $2,503 check a year ago at Fort Still National Bank.  She made the check payable to her mother (who recently passed away.).    The indictment is posted below.

Of course the grand jury only hears one side of the case. It will be interesting to see what the defense says. I remember when my mother died. My name was on her checking accounts as joint owner. I was named executor of her will. I don't remember the specifics, but I remember that the bank made things much more difficult than they should have been. The thing that helped me was that as Mom got older and her mind wasn't as sharp, I made it a point to go and visit with the local branch manager and tell her about Mom. Develop a relationship. That became important after Mom died. That manager made a big difference. In my hometown, where Mom lived, we both knew people at the bank that we had known for decades and I had no problems. If you have an elderly parent and you will be responsible for their money, get off your computer and go down to the bank and let them get to know you before there are any problems. It might make things easier later.

Depending on the circumstances, it is not uncommon for people to do this. There is something else here. Maybe the will is being disputed by another relative and somebody wants to get even. Also another reason to do business with a bank you know. Never heard of this bank.

Your obviously trying to assume she's a black lady. Not sure what else that dumb comment of yours would suggest... news flash she's not black

8:31's experience speaks volumes of truth. I was appointed executor of a close friends estate when he passed. He had a good working relationship with a manager where he banked. This manager knew me well and things were good. I was able to tend to his final bills and other things UNTIL.....the manager retired as well as the bank branch managing VP. The two people that replaced them made managing my friends final affairs a total cluster F_ _k and caused things to drag out way longer thank it should have.

The only thing I can ad to that is make sure loved ones have a will, a living will and that someone you can trust has POA when the time comes. Those 3 things will make the executors life SOOOOO much easier.

You and 8:31 PM are correct. The only thing I question is the POA. My understanding is the POA is null and void upon the death of the person granting it. Perhaps an attorney reading this will clarify.

Blue bloods and socialites have to have fun too.

Kind of like the piece on the swim coach, lots of allegations, no proof of the other side of the story. Most likely wont be an update.

Yes, a POA and a living will are both good things to have in place. But both expire at death. So once the individual dies, even if you are named as executor of his/her will, you are not authorized to conduct any business on his/her behalf until the Court authorizes you to do so through the probate process. For this reason, as someone mentioned, it is a good idea to open up a joint account with the person whom you name as executor so that the person can handle your affairs upon death until such time as the probate process has been completed (often takes longer than you think). I'm guessing this individual was trying to raid mama's funds before the other heirs got their fair share. Happens quite often. But I'm sure her defense attorney will have a different story.

All this estate conjecture getting barfed here is great BUT the mother, Elizabeth Fultz Anglin, was alive when the check cashed. She passed July 28, 2019.

@7:58 What in the hell about that comment references a black woman? I think we all know Ellen is not black. Now, if it were Da'Ellen or Elle'N or L'En, maybe she's black. What does race have to do with this?

Anonymous said...

I’ve known Ellen since we were kids and no, she is not a black woman.
However, she does one hysterically funny impersonation of one! Much like Jamie Foxx’s Wanda character from In Livin’ Color. You should get a video of that to post. Hilarious!!

Don't get screwed said...

In my experience, 10:39 above is correct. However, again with my experience, the statement from above: "For this reason, as someone mentioned, it is a good idea to open up a joint account with the person whom you name as executor so that the person can handle your affairs upon death until such time as the probate process has been completed (often takes longer than you think)." let me give you one tidbit of CAUTION: A bank account with the decedent as the owner and someone else, let's say the Executor of the Estate, as co-owner of the account to handle those "between death and the probate court issuing letters testamentary expenses", here's the catch: The money in that account is no longer a part of the decedents estate. It now belongs to the surviving owner of the account, be it the Executor or whomever was listed as a co-owner of the account.

I concur with 1:15. Depending on the amount of money, titling, and a few other factors, there could be some future problems with setting up a joint account.

Also, a joint account gives power of appointment which means the joint owner is also liable for taxes on that money, and because there was beneficial ownership before the death, it will likely divert the step up in basis around the estate. It would likely also bring problems with future probate claims. It's best to have the executor reimbursed from the estate. That way everything stays clean. It is worth the extra $$$ to have someone do some estate planning if the estate will own investments, land, or business interests. Better to be safe than sorry.

BTW... Everyone should have a will, POA, and a healthcare directive. Period. Even if you have to hand write it.

Avoid probate => Trust! said...

Probate? Seriously? Form a trust and keep the gubment out of your family's business. You can form a trust using services like Legal Zoom for less than $150, including the pour-over will, etc.

@1:15
A joint account with the right of survivorship is void of taxes on the secondary owner as long as the primary account owner claims 100% of the shares every year until death. You and your kind need to quit worrying about the step up in basis. Finding a problem for every solution that doesn’t involve the government, you are.

Don’t listen to the pro probate people. They’re nuts. More money for theiving lawyers. Make everything a non probate able asset (beneficiaries/ joint ownership) & do a muniment of title OR do a living trust. F__k em.

Anonymous said...

10:39 - You stopped short of mentioning a trust. Sitting around, waiting for the probate process to kick in and finalize is a thing of the past. I bet you know this.

Anonymous said...

1:15....Not necessarily, Bubba. If I'm listed on the account as being authorized to sign checks (as opposed to a joint owner of the account), that does NOT grant me ownership of the account upon the death of the account-holder. Nor would I be liable for account deficiencies or other legal complications associated with it, such as address changes, automatic withdrawals, payments or deposits, etc.

Yes, I didn't mention trusts and all of the other avenues that others have brought up here for avoiding probate (life insurance comes to mind) which is always a good thing. I was basically just trying to clear up the misconception about power of attorney and give the simplest answer to the problem of..."crap, my mom just died and all these bills are coming in, and I can't even write a check to pay the light bill out of her account." All good suggestions, though. Please consult an attorney who does this sort of thing on a regular basis or a financial planner if you or a loved one are considering dying :)

Y’all all are wasting your time arguing. Her mother and her mother’s son had everything planned out already upon her death. Ellen forged the check in her mothers name way way before her mother passed, along with many other terrible things. Her brother (the good son) is handling the estate legally and Ellen is not to have nothing to do with it!

Anonymous said...

10:24. I see your point. The discussion may not fit Mrs. Anglin. But I disagree that it was a waste of time. I would not be surprised if one or more good souls read this 'waste of time' and took some actions that will help them greatly some day.

Sounds like she didnt realize she was doing anything wrong. I feel sorry for her. All this over $2500. We had a tenant that had ran a scam thru Lowes and Rent-a-center, she made off with over $50,000 and she bonded out, moved to Texas and came back a year later and Hinds County hasn't prosecuted her. Seems they prefer to prosecute the white socialites.

Lmao. Omg this is Ellen Anglin. This is all so very sad to me. I'm no means a social light, actually a pretty private person until something so horrible is published like this. Nobody has even a clue what the truth is. Number one, I didn't forge any checks of my mother's. She had a check written to her that she asked me just to deposit in my account and its absurd that I have to sit here and explain myself. My worst enemy ( my good brother) is the one who has caused all this mess along with 100 other horrible things in my life. He contacted the bank to make up this horrible lie. He lost his place as executor of her will BC he could not fulfill all the obligations that came along with being an executor BC he could not quit drinking or drugging for just one day of his life. Soon everybody figured out all his manipulation and deception that he had been pulling for years. He milked my father for tons of money which landed him at my mother's and milked her for every cent she had before she died. That's just the tip of the iceberg and I'm not one to down anybody especially publicly but since I'm having to defend myself I must tell the truth. And I have had to spend so much time trying to clean up all the messes he has tried to make in my life. Why he hates me so bad, I truly have no idea. There is so much more to this story and nobody has a clue the truth. My mother knows the truth and unfortunately she's not here to tell it. I did not forge a check of hers. I did not willingly and knowingly attempt to fraud anybody. It was a check a loan company had written to Elizabeth Anglin and we both have the same name but that's beside the point here. On the back of the check it stated to write everybody involved in this loans name and phone number. So I did! My mother was negative in her bank account and had me deposit it into my bank account and I gave her the money. This bank is by no means the smartest or best one to use. I would have thought the allegations would have been between me and Tower Loan. How the bank is the prosecutor I have no idea. And my mother is not here to tell the truth. She was in no means able to make the best decisions or even in her right mind. I was only trying to help her. I have an attorney handling it so there's no need for anybody to accuse anybody of anything until my testimony is heard and the grand jury makes a decision. It's humiliating and embarrassing for something so innocent to be blown up and put all over the Internet. And for the one that called me a POS its OK, I know I'm not and its haters like you out there that try and bring happy people down but it's up to me whether or not I'll let it bother me. I'm sorry to say it doesn't. And it's very sad that y'all thrive on bad things to happen to people you don't like. The Bible talks of people like you. I'll be sure and let everyone know the outcome since so many people are so interested in my popular yet boring life. Goodnight everyone xxoo

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
