I think if you use a bunch of fake info, they won’t take it seriously. Just man up and do it yourself.

I hope you realize that when you set up fake names and contact info that they take the report much less seriously and will sometimes just assume that you are the troublemaker because you don’t even want to be contacted. My sister sometimes deals with cases like this and she said it is always best to just give up your contact information up front to avoid any assumptions being made – just include in the report that you want your identity to remain 100% anonymous as you fear for your safety if she found out.

You also need to make it clear that you personally did not witness what happened and this is all heresay. The last thing anyone wants is for them to take a child away based off of a story that got out of hand. I’d also ask certain family members if you could include their name of phone number in case they want to contact them about what actually happened.

I don’t think though that best case is that he gets taken away, best case is that she gets a wake up call and cleans up her act for her family… there is also always the chance that it isn’t as bad as you think it is and there is more drama than truth being told.
