His Neighbor’s Genius Turned a $100k Inheritance Into $3 Million, but The Neighbor’s Cousins Are Now Circling Like Vultures and Demanding a Huge Cut

A man’s close relationship with his parents’ neighbor, “Aunt J,” who became like family, led her to manage his inheritance from his grandmother. However, this caused conflict with his cousins. Here is what he had to say:

His Parents Took In The Neighbor

The man said, “When I was a kid, a young widow moved into the house next to us. She was only 19 then, now 36. She was no contact with her family, and my parents kind of took her in. Dad helped around her house, and Mom always cooked extra for her. She started attending college and my parents wanted to make her life a bit easier since she had no one.”

They Became Close

The man saw the woman as an Aunt as she babysat him, took him shopping, and gave him as many gifts as his parents did. She was always there for him, and she was known to the family as Aunt J.

She Was The Executor Of His Grandma’s Will

The man’s paternal grandma also adored her and treated her like her own. So when she passed away, she made Aunt J her executor. Aunt J was pre-law, but she switched to business management. The man’s dad and his siblings got a few things, but the grandkids got everything else.

His Grandma’s will was clear. She didn’t want any fighting between the grandkids. So, her will said to sell everything apart from what she left to her kids and distribute the money evenly between all seven grandkids, even if it meant they would lose some chunk of money as a result.

Aunt J did as the grandma requested, and she gave a check to all seven of them. They each got a little over $100,000. The man’s cousins were ecstatic. They were all older than him and they paid off their debts or put deposits on houses, etc. That was six years ago, and the man was 18 then.

Aunt J Managed His Money

He didn’t know what to do with his money, as his parents had saved up for his college. Aunt J suggested he invest most of it and use a little bit to get something for himself. The man explained, “Since it’s her actual job to invest other people’s money, I gave it to her, after discussing it with my parents. I went to college, and between my parent’s savings and mine, I had enough not to dip into the 100k.”

He Didn’t Need College Scholarships

Over dinner one evening, the man told his family he got into the Harvard Business program. After the congratulations, the topic naturally shifted to money and scholarships. He said he was good and didn’t really need any scholarships.

They were confused and pressed the topic, and he explained that Aunt J had helped him invest, and he had more than enough to live the rest of his life comfortably. He didn’t brag about the money, but he praised Aunt J to high heaven. She was a genius; after all, she turned $100,000 into $3 million in six years.

His Cousins Were Angry

Nothing happened that day, but he started getting calls the next day for money. When he refused, they started accusing Aunt J of being unfair and claimed that she had given him more money than others. They refused to believe that Aunt J had turned $100,000 into $3 million. They thought part of it was still from Grandma’s inheritance, and Aunt J had scammed them.

Was The Man In The Wrong?

They said they would sue, and Aunt J said, “Go ahead.” The man’s mom wanted him to give a little bit to others to avoid the drama, but he didn’t want to.

One person said, “Give them nothing. You all had the same opportunities; you were just wiser with yours by investing it. It’s not your fault they spent theirs, and they shouldn’t be able to whine their way into a piece of your $3 million. If that is the price of peace in your family, going no contact is free.”

Another Person Commented

“Don’t give them a penny. It was all equal and your mother shouldn’t be supporting that behavior.”
