This son has been a Heroin Addict, and is purportedly on Methadone recovery treatment. His mother had colitis and had trouble walking her dog. she has now recovered, and wants her dog back. Her son says she is not yet capable of looking after the dog, but she insists that she now can...it is her dog. Then he says she needs to pay him $300.00 for "boarding her dog" for perhaps 4 weeks. Originally he said $700.00 to return the dog. Sounds like extortion. The son has also run up charges on his mother's credit card which he borrowed to pay a minor bill and continued to use, as well as begged her to pay a traffic ticket he had incurred of $200.00, which she did. What are my friend's options?
