Just found out tonight that my niece opened a credit card in my 81 y.o. mothers name and has run the balance up to $562. This is my brother's daughter who has taken advantage of my mother before. A year ago, he and my mother agreed to have my niece and her two kids move in with her. They kept me out of the loop because they knew I would disagree (to put it mildly!) Anyway, last month I had to go to pick my mom up and bring her home with me due to several abuses she was enduring by my niece. At that time, I told my niece she had 30 days to get out. Now, I recieved this notice from the credit card company and need to find out how I can go about going after her for this identity theft and other charges if possible. She lives in the Orlando, Florida area and my mother is with me in Georgia at this time. Any suggestions/guidance would be greatly appreciated. I have been left to "clean up the mess" after my brothers' sudden death 7 months ago.
