Bahamas Probing Check Forgery in Anna Nicole Case

2/21/2007 7:09 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Officials in the Bahamas are investigating an allegation that a company called ANS Interactive forged signatures on checks written in the Bahamas and with cash winding up in Santa Monica, Calif., Debra Opri, the attorney for Larry Birkhead, revealed in court just moments ago.

Howard K. Stern, the subject of the questioning, said he wasn't aware of the investigation. He says he "didn't know" if he was an officer of the company. He did admit that ANS Interactive ran Anna Nicole's official website.

That case should be easy to solve......just compare ANS handwriing to the phony checks.

I bet they were kiting checks because Anna had no money. She blew through everything. They went to the Bahamma's for a purpose and that was to avoid the issue with the baby and because she was broke.

Now we know after the money trail is followed.
Howard Baby has been writing checks even after Anna passed.
Watching the circus in the courtroom today there can be no doubt that Mr. H K Stern is in this right up to scrawny neck.
Living in Nassau may save his sorry azz from prosecution, however where does he go after he is evicted from that beautiful home?
Coming to a jail house in the very near future will be H K then we wonder what happens to the child?

someone explain what this means in stupid people terms for me. Kiting isn't that writing a check out of a bank account with no money and writing it to another bank and then getting the cash out for it before the check bounces? Wouldn't that only be able to happen ONE time now that there is so much verification with EFT's and what not. Someone explain what exactly the investigation means.

It wouldn't surprise me if Anna Nicole was broke, it really wouldn't. It's just so sad that she trusted Stern to set everything up right for her and he couldn't do that. This whole case is just SAD and it makes me wish that we had been a little easier on ANS so maybe she wouldn't have gone so wacko.

I also believe now that the reason ANS took medication was because of pains from cosmetic surgery and from depression. She probably didn't even know it was her cosmetic surgery putting her in so much pain. It sounds like she actually needed some meds but she ABUSED them. That is what is scary about prescription meds, they are addictive. I fear for Dannielynn because no matter who ends up with this baby she will be up shit creek without a paddle. All these monkeys are a bunch of douches. Vergie, Stern, Birkhead, Her "people", the immigration minister, the lawyers, the judge, ALL douches.

OHHHHH Mr. Stern...You looked very nervous with drinking that water every time a nerve was hit.
I was waiting for you to throw your hands up and say" OK OK, I give up the quest for the body and I am NOT the Father!" The JIGS UP! Walk away with PRIDE!
