reporting a trustee

We have had multiple negative events with our trustee. Prior to signing, he assured us he had our best interest at hand. After signing, he stated that he was not here to represent us, but to represent our creditors and the courts. He told us to go lease a vehicle and even gave us the name of who to go see. When we went back for our next meeting, he chastised us for leasing a vehicle. We transferred the house from my name to my wife`s name, (I was the only one claiming bankruptcy for my business) and took any funds to pay a credit line. We asked one of his advisors and his secretary prior to doing so because we did not want to do anything wrong. The trustee then literally screamed at us he would sue for the money claiming we had nothing in writing and if we wanted to take him to court, we could and they would take his word and not ours because he is an officer of the court.
If we report this trustee, is he advised of the complaint and who made the complaint?

If you have concerns about your trustee, you should contact the nearest Office of the Superintendent of Bankruptcy. The Office of the Superintendent of Bankruptcy is the division of the government that monitors and licences trustees.

Now if a complaint is made it will be confidential. However, if they are investigating complaints on your file and start to ask to look at any of the details of your file, it is entirely possible the trustee could become suspicious about what has happened.
