Dear Valued Customer

A former staff member of the deceased estates section of Public Trustee has been charged with dishonesty offences allegedly committed between July 2015 and May 2016. As the matter is before the courts, we are unable to provide you with further details at this time.

The person concerned handled Deceased Estates. The allegations do not relate to Public Trustee’s Will-Writing, Tax, Trusts, Personal Estates or Regulatory branches.

Please be assured that Public Trustee has cooperated fully with investigators and will continue to do so.

If you wish to seek specific information about your estate, or provide information about the matter, please ring our dedicated information line at Public Trustee on 08 8226 9280 (Monday to Friday, 9.00 am until 5.00 pm) or email us at https://publictrustee.sa.gov.au/contact-us/request-for-information/

We thank you for your ongoing support and will keep you informed as best we can.
