When your mom steals your identity
Identity theft is difficult enough without the added emotional anguish of knowing a parent used your data to get credit. If you're a victim, what do you do?
This post comes from Christine DiGangi at partner site Credit.com.
WRONG. Never "threaten" to call the police — just CALL THE POLICE. There's no need to warn "Mom" about it first because the law itself (which Mom was breaking rampantly) WAS the warning.
Why turn this into an illegal alien post? The article did not mention anything about illegal aliens and babies, it is an article about a college age adult whose mother set up a credit card with the student's knowledge. What happened after this, the mother setting up additional credit cards and using these credit cards is the crime. It has nothing to do with illegal aliens. Please don't spread your hate around.
What I have discovered is that once people know for certain that you will prosecute them for their behavior they generally don't pull **** on you. They think really hard about laying a hand on you or taking what belongs to you because they FEAR the consequences. It is only those good hearted suckers who they know won't press charges that get taken to the cleaners.
I'd file charges so fast they wouldn't know what hit them. And I'd sleep just fine knowing they were rotting in jail.
Put Mom in the can!
"Remember when you would'nt let me stay up late to watch monster movies?".
"Remember when you used to make me call the plumber 'Uncle Tony'?".
HA!....10 years, see ya Mom!!
