Ok this might be long & a bit confusing....My best friend & I have this other friend we've both known for years (25+ yrs actually) and she is doing some questionable things. We feel we should go & report her some place but we dont know what to do. Here is what she is doing:
1. She let another person use her kids social security numbers on their taxes to get more of a refund & the other person shared part of the refund with her. (she found she was NOT going to get a refund so she never finished filing taxes for last year)
2. He 15 year old son appears to be in possession of a stolen credit card number. He is ordering stuff up off the net like crazy (shoes, clothes, concert tickets, watches & ordering pizzas all the time). She KNOWS he is doing this. She claims that her son's friend has a long lost dad that reappeared & "let" the friend use the credit card. (which makes no sense to us because if its true HOW is it that HER son has the number?)
3. Her boyfriend has some kind of warrant for his arrest. We don't know for what & she claims neither does he. They happened to look his name up on the dept. of corrections website & it came up he is "wanted/out of custody" & to call a number if you see him. He previously was in prison for forgery.
4. And back to the 15 yr old son...he does drugs. She caught him once in the house. He flaunts the fact he does it all over his Facebook. We think he might be selling them because he has NO money to buy any. She says she thinks his friends are just giving him the drugs..for free (ummm, not likely!)
Side note: nobody over there is working...she's on unemployment. And not much a week. She also has a 16 yr old daughter w/ a baby that is about a year old now. And a 11 yr old son. So we are just concerned that these kids are just getting exposed to the total WRONG ideas. I mean..drugs, buying bunches of stuff with someone's credit card, tax fraud...we also feel like the fact we know about all this means we should morally report it to...somebody! But who? The police? The IRS? Who?
OK so here's what we did:
We went to the police department. They looked at us like we were dumb. They sent us to the sheriff's office. They listened. Wrote some stuff down & basically said "we will look into it". I called the 800 number & reported the wanted boy friend. Do you think ANYTHING changed? NOPE! Not one thing. The guys name is STILL up on the website as wanted. I just talked to her today & she's whining about how they have no money & how she might see if her son will get her some drugs to sell just to "get over the hump"! SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO....yeah being a good citizen means nothing! Just let the criminals run free!!!!!
