@ShabbyChicBee:  Woah. That’s pretty amazing. What horrible behavior from your supposed friend!

I think you’re doing all you can. You told her you knew what was going on, got your own plan and are sending her your old phone. I assume you’ll also notify her (in writting) that you want off the plan. I think you can probably call the provider and request that your name be removed from you device (or move your number to your new phone/carrier). This will show intent to discontinue the service.

@ShabbyChicBee:  Whose account is it, then? Is it in her name? Sheesh, that’s low. Though, I would have paid closer attention to the charges and found out WHY it was so much higher and caught it sooner…=

I am sorry that happened to you. I’d probably kick her from my party and end the friendship, she was clearly using you and had no qualms about it at all. SO rude!

@ShabbyChicBee:  Whoooaaaa. That is seriously messed up. So, from what you described – you’re completely covering her bill, plus there is someone else paying for her bill and giving her the money for it, so she just keeps what they give her?

Her calmness in responding is ever scarier, in my opinion. Like she is very practiced about lying about swindling people.  I mean, what she does illegal. You can say no judging all you want, but your friend is a fraud. Is it hurtful she did this to a friend? Of course, but as they say, no honour amonst thieves. 

I would tell her she needs to pay you back what you’ve been paying for her, even if it is slowly over time. $500 a month?! That’s insane.

If you have online access, that means you have access to the billing, yes? You never checked this before now?

@ShabbyChicBee:  It is stunning what people will do when money is involved. Beyond the stealing, it’s the entitlement that gets me. She probably rationalized, “Oh, raylene has a good job, she makes money.” I’ve had friends like this. They’re draining (monetarily, emotionally). Does she tend to be the dramatic one and you’re always helping her out/hearing her out, but when you’re upset she’s only half-interested? Been there. The foundation of friendship is respect. She does not respect you. She might as well have been taking 40 dollars out of your wallet every month for the last year. Be civil with her, feel sad the friendship is over, move on. Tell her that you don’t trust her anymore and don’t want her to be Maid/Matron of Honor. If you still want her to be a guest, okay.

@ShabbyChicBee:  Yikes!  That sucks.  I agree that this is definitely something you should have figured out before.  Yes, she should have told you that you were overpaying but you should also have paid attention to your bill.

I would first check to see if there is a credit on the account.  Possibly she has been paying her part too and now there is just a surplus.  If there is no credit, I’d ask her to pay you back. If she doesn’t pay you back, then I’d dump her as a friend and consider the $500 as a deposit in the karma bank for getting her out of your life.
