The only phone in the house is sil’s cell phone

which she keeps glued to her and when she lets dmil on it she stands right at her shoulder and tells her what to say.
Dh’s 65 birthday is Monday, but I doubt he’ll get a call from her. Sil won’t allow it.
Once there is actual communication between sil –who will keep trying to get the money—he is going to demand to see his mother ALONE. Well not really alone, I will be there and maybe dbil and the good dsil. But no bad sil allowed. If this is refused then we will look at other options.
No money is going to the sil no matter what. Even if we do have to finally call the cops on her. Which I was ready to do over a year ago. I’ve contacted my snitch and he’s going to try and think of a reason to go see dmil that won’t be too suspicious with all that is going on. At least I know he’ll report honestly to me.…

Crash and burn into a brick wall for certain

There is the over $10,000 she’s spent in three weeks on cc that will show up on credit reports soon and that is going to hurt their chances that much more. If one of the cc calls me I will tell them that they need to check into identity theft, because dmil doesn’t drive, has no car she could legally drive, has no driver’s license, she is computer inept, and she does not know how to operate a cell phone and there is no land line in the home. So the charges cannot possibly be her. Not to mention her mental condition.

Yeppers, sil is about to become cheetah food.…

My suspicions too

I wonder if SIL thought she could waltz out of the bank with that money in hand, and go spend it on fun stuff. Like she’s apparently been doing with her cc’s for awhile now. With ever-more-stringent loan conditions, no mortgage lender could hope to approve a loan for your mom without having already checked into this stuff and seen that not everything is, as it appears to be. I think I hear a faint “tick tock tick tock” on SIL’s money romp coming to an end.…

I just got a copy of the text

Remember this is from a blocked number:

“1/2You need to call (broker name was here) and tell him to let mom have HER money..she has bought a house and needs it for a down payment immediately. Have him call m

2/2om at this number when it is ready to be picked up.”

So dh isn’t even allowed to speak to his mother about it? I don’t think so. Especially since the money legally belongs to dh. …

Text messages don’t hold up in all courts…

I knew a girls who tried to say her baby daddy was verbally abusive to her and she tried to use the text messages and the judge basically told her that there wasn’t enough proof to say “he” was the one that sent them or someone using his phone…I never did believe her as I’ve always seen her as the aggressor…

LOL!

But my response is: Ah, but you see the legal notification we sent all three siblings said “In writing via US MAIL.” Texting is not US MAIL. I saw this coming and knew she’d try to get around to providing any info what so ever on this. Sharon this is the same sil I discussed the funeral arrangement problems with back 15 months or so ago off list.
I’d love to see the house, the loan papers, WHOSE name is on the title etc. But you know that is never going to happen because it’s all a big scam.
As for dmil, yep, we will be checking on her even more often and despite what sil says we will see her alone any time we want—long story on that one. Let’s just say she’s posted to the world we are not to be trusted and will not be left alone with dmil.…

I’m coming late to this bonfire

and dang this really has blown up on you. My sincere condolences. I know you’ll find your way through this and that you’ll keep your DMIL safe and sound and protected. I also have a sneaky suspicion that SIL is about to crash and burn. S’mores, anyone? Do what you have to do, with your standard skill and savvy, and you’ll come out on top. I look forward to the eventual email that SIL is D-O-N-E.
Kimberly J. Horn, still fighting her own battles today.…

Dh just called

He got a text from a blocked number stating MOM has bought a house Call (broker’s name) and close the account. Call when you have the check and I’ll pick it up.

No will you, not from his mother, just the order. It wasn’t even signed. It could have been from anyone. And how the heck are we suppose to call. We have no phone number. This woman has a brass set for certain. He is not responding. The official notification she received seven times in the past is all financial requests must be submitted in writing.

We have no proof even that Mom is still alive. Dh is sending me a copy of the text for our files.…
