I agree--putting one over on a trustee is a crime. Its called Bankruptcy Fraud.

HOWEVER--have your lawyer check state law. In some states, contributions to a 529 plan for the benefit of a minor are exempt from creditors. make sure your lawyer looks at a recent copy of the relevant law--these plans are new as are the exemptions, in those states where they exist.
