My step-son is 39 and a drug abuser. The way I found out he was stealing our money is when our electricity was turned off. My older step-son paid to have it turned and advised me to take charge of the finances. She had always been a whiz at it. it has been two years since he took her debit card and pin and robbed us for a year. The power, phone, dish and internet were all turned off and the house was in foreclosure.
I have a good retirement but had to get even with the bank to get off the account with her. It took about 3 months to get all of my income in to another account. I was able to pay the bills and talked the bank out of foreclosure. It has taken a year to pay off all the debts. I do have some savings but my credit is no good. He took her car and lost it to the law because they found drugs in it. Which was ok she should not drive. The bank knew and I will say what bank it was and did nothing. The judge gave him 5 years in the pen for drugs and having stolen property. If and when he gets out and we are still alive do I have to let this sorry thief in our house? All I want to do is take care of her and all she thinks about is trying to get more money to him. I did make her give me POA to bail him out of jail. But haven't used it.
