Has anyone had to deal with this? My 31 yr old neice used my mom's identity to open all kinds of accounts- to the tune of over $5,000. My mom , who's 72 , can't bear to think of pressing charges, because it's her granddaughter, but she also cannot pay this back. I've been able to talk to one company for her, and they said she must do something, because they will soon begin collection. Have any of you been in this type of mess? How did you clear it up? Of course, I'm not asking for any specific info that's not appropriate to share. I'm totally freaked that my neice had the guts to do this. My mom has helped her financially so many times in the past, but I guess some people feel entitled.
