As soon as Katherine Ganeko was back on her own she started spending money outside her meager pension of approximative $2,000 monthly and tried to cash her annuity to spend in California on her long time “friends” (Cory Nagy and his lover Martine). It was very clear that her “friends” were financially fleecing her because as soon as her money were gone, they dumped her off at her niece Sharon’s residence in Monterey Bay Cali., & Sharon in turn would dump her back to Hawaii with Charles, the neighbor.
The nieces were WELL aware of the many years of financial abuse by Katherine’s California & various friends, but did nothing because it was not affecting their inheritance ie the Aiea house & annuity. However, when Sharon heard of Kathy's elaborate spending sprees outside her pension, she immediately contacted Adult Protective Services in an attempt to deem her aunt incompetent because she had held POA.
The ultimate goal was to get Katherine Ganeko in a cheap nursing home and wait for her inheritance (which she has now succeeded). Within 2 months after the niece took Kathy from the airport (she was coming back with Susan from yet another Chin family vacation in NYC), the nieces threw Katherine Ganeko in a home & as soon as Katherine would reach out to Susan via telephone her family would move her again to keep their aunt away from the truth & unhappy quality of life.
Kathy was taken from the Honolulu airport by the niece, Nicole Arnelas, who lives in Aiea, but never visited or cared for Katherine & under the ruse of wanting to spend time with her aunty. Less than 5 days of kidnapping Katherine Ganeko, the grandniece, downloaded an online POA, had Katherine sign it, cleared out 4 accounts & cut all of Katherine’s communication w/Susan. It was cleared by the 2nd day; Katherine desperately wanted to “go home” (to Susan Chin). Unbeknownst to Susan was the greedy plot against her & their aunt was unfolding & even suggested that Kathy visit with family for that week.
