@nickels: If you read the thread, OP has decided to file a report and has contacted her family including her fiance’s uncle who is a lawyer.

I hate to say it, but filing a police report is likely the best thing to do. Given her situation, she likely won’t go to jail. Community service. Sometimes lessons are best learnt the hard way.

It is great of you to be there for your cousin. If she stops talking to you over this, she was the one who asked for it. I honestly hate people like that. Don’t bite the hand that feeds!

Let us know how it goes. I’m sorry you had to go through this. I think the decision to go to the police is right, like PPs have said, some people need to hit rock bottom. Hopefully this is it for her and she can turn it around for her own sake and the sake of her kids.

It is definitely not your fault the kids are in foster care…it’s hers! She is the one who stole, not you!

@MrsStrawberry24: you never know, i bet you didn’t think she’d steal like $1200 from you, either! even if the drugs were the guy’s, it is unbelievably irresponsible to bring those kids into that situation (on top of everything else!!!!). i mean it seriously takes the cake. foster care will hopefully be temporary, but what you did might have been a real changing point in their lives for the better.

Wow. Good for you and you CERTAINLY did the right thing. Please don’t feel at all guilty for it. The kids will be reunited with your aunt in no time I’m sure, and this will hopefully be the lesson your cousin needs.

@MrsStrawberry24: I worry that her kids are seeing this and learning that you can get away with this.  Perhaps she needs this lesson for herself AND for her kids to see…

you need to report her to the police…you will never get your money back and your credit will be negatively impacted. If you get a police report you can get the bank to fix it!

That is so insane. I cannot imagine going through this. And…I know it is hard to believe, but you didn’t think she would steal your check book, say sorry, then write more checks either. I know I don’t know her, but I wouldn’t be surprised if the drugs were hers… 

I feel soooo bad for you. What an awful situation 🙁 But I’m really glad you filed a report, and I hope you get every dime back!!
