FBI investigates missing $17M in trust funds

•  Recent Cases     updated  2012/07/09 15:00


The FBI is investigating the apparent theft of $17 million from Northern California trust fund accounts.

The San Jose Mercury News says the money has vanished from the trust funds of dozens of Santa Clara County residents who relied on a money manager to oversee their life savings.

Probate court records show the investigation centers on accounts administered by Christine Backhouse. She handles more than $104 million in assets.

Court records show she doesn't have enough insurance to cover the missing funds.

Backhouse says a boyfriend secretly wired millions of dollars out of the trusts.

The Campbell money manager mostly handled private trusts with no judicial oversight of her fees for service.
