SUE!!! to hell with whether she's you're mum or not. I love my mum but if she did that to me I'd take her to the courts for sure.

It DOESN'T reset every 7 years, what kinda dope are you smoking? Also, still file the report, this is still identity theft. Your mum could have effectively ruined any chance of you ever getting a nice car or a mortgage or any other form of loan. If you don't prosecute you've pretty much lost all chance of getting your own house AND you'll have to pay off the debt she's written up.

You're still going to call the cops, right? You should, because someone DID steal your identity. It just happens to be your mom, who obviously is a worthless deadbeat. If you file a police report, then the credit reporting agencies are legally obliged to clear up your credit. It'll take some time and a lot of crap, but it will work.

I think the guy who said credit resets every seven years is confused. If you declare bankruptcy your debts are cleared, but a note is put on your credit report saying you declared bankruptcy. That note is removed after seven years.

This happens a LOT actually...definitely call the police, get the paperwork started because this will NOT go away on its own. Sadly, most of the time when this happens the children just ignore it and plug on through life with horrible credit. They choose family peace with the sick asshats who did this to them instead of making the parent PAY for what they DID. It is WRONG and a complete violation of the trust we should be able to have in the people who brought us into the world. I promise

lmfao why would it reset after 7 years? Hey! lets withdraw 500.000 now cuz ya know in 7 years i wont have to pay anyways

Bankruptcy is on your report 10 years, all other negative information (over your limit, late payments, etc) stays on there for 7. So it doesn't "reset" after 7 yrs but most individual negative info only impacts your report for 7 except bankruptcy which is 10

your mom is hoping that you will not file charges because she is your mom. She gets all this stuff for free, screws your credit and if you do not file a report, stuck with bad credit and the bills. CHARGE HER ASS.

Omg that's terrible. You have to bring it to the authorities or you are going to be paying off all that money. It sucks that it is your mother but seriously, its you or her and she is the one screwing you over.

Do you really want this woman in your life? I know she's your mother, but dammit, there are limits. Shop her in, divorce the bitch.

But, the Op's mother didn't ask for his information for a crisis. I am sure if Op's mother really needed money then he would have been glad to help. But to have your parents ruin your credit and use your identity for something they know they won't pay back is wrong. It doesn't matter what she needed it for, a moral person asks before they do something like that. And THREE YEARS is a long time, especially since Op is only 21 and now his credit is ruined. How is that a caring parent. They could ha

this story has nothing to do with a functional family. yes, in a functional family you help one another, but it's just wrong to help yourself to someone else's identity. even worse, the "help" totally screwed the OP's life up. that's the epitome of dysfunction.

I am sick of your negativity towards Americans. Just because you live a different life style does not mean we are stupid or ignorant or below you. And just because you read some crappy twitter length feed about shitty things does not mean you know us. Sure we don't spend our whole lives living with our relatives in huge houses. But we were raised differently. It is known that interdependent families don't always think about the individual needs to the children. If the child wanted to be say a

Geist, I'm from the middle east but raised in the US. Yes I was raised to believe family is important above all, but I was also raised not to judge people based on their cultures alone. American families are different, not wrong. Believing the way they live is wrong just because it is different from the way you live is justifying it when in America they target you for being different. You can't use the views of one culture to judge another.

As I said before, those continents have some societies where you keep hush hush about the shit that's pulled behind the scenes. You could be horribly raped by your father, but if you were to tell about it, you'd be shunned for speaking openly about sex, and you'd still be expected to have upmost respect and servitude towards your parents. So, you can't always assume they're doing it right, it can easily be a complete farce, a mask put on to look good in front of company.

But you don't know she needs help. You're making assumptions that support only what you're saying. You could be completely wrong. The mother could be making more than enough money to support her family, but maybe she just wants to buy expensive clothing or accessories and sees no reason to abuse her child's credit. Also, how is it obvious that the OP didn't do his part? Maybe he has a job to help pay bills, but again the mom just wants more out of greed. Don't make ludicrous assumptions and cal

Ever thought the mom might be a chronic gambler, or buyer? If she keeps opening credit card accounts, it seems to me she definitely just doesn't know when to quit. Especially since she's been doing this for /three years/. He has no way to help the family if she is after money and he can't provide it. What do you expect him to do? If she is having money problems and won't talk to anyone about it, or seek actual help rather than burying her son, then she deserves her money problems. It is co

He DID talk to his mother. He said he called her to figure out what was going on. She told him about it. If she told him she took the information and a reason why (not just to get her toesies painted) do you think he would be on here? No. He would be out there trying to fix it and the FML would be different. It would include that important piece of information. Also yeah its his mother, but isn't HE HER SON. You act like it is only the parents that deserve respect. The son, in America, is colleg

Reply

This has been completely taken out of context because of peoples ludicrous assumptions and comparing what she done to another society/culture. She is a part of the AMERICAN culture where it is illegal and immoral to do such a thing. If you went to America you would be treated the same way. The judgment passed upon your actions depends on the perceptions of those around you, and to dislike theft is virtually universal. In reality there is only theft as a crime, to kill you steal someones life, to

Again, a Moron and hating Americans crap because s/he has nothing better to do but to find reasons to hate this country.

I am not American and I would sue my mother's ass if she did that. And now, dear Geist, shut your pie hole.

Reply

Breaking the law is not okay in any culture that I know of. Saying it's okay for her to ruin her son's life because she's his mother is absolutely ludicrous. If anything she's the one who cares only about herself and not her family.

Reply

Do you really think the mother asked her 18/19 year old son if she can steal his identity? I doubt that. My mother is a single woman with 6 girls, with me being the oldest, she uses my name for things. Hell no she didn't ask. Don't pull the American thing out on the OP, pull that card out on the MOTHER. She is the one not paying things off thus adding to the fucked up economy. I'd say that's more American than not letting your mother steal your identity.

Hey Geist, I am Scottish, and lived in Britain all my life, but your comments on America are completely ignorant. Not only the fact are you stereotyping the American's but you think that more Eastern countries are completely and utterly courteous? I think you'll find a large knife crime in London, chavs on every street in Cambridge, drunks everywhere in Edinburgh—Britain is not perfect. Not everyone is brought up correctly, not everyone is taught to be compassionate and thoughtful—the same in

I like your style, good point. And though it was long it was interesting and well thought out. I liked it. Brits defending Americans! End of the world! LOL

Do you have any idea what you're saying? I agree with all the people who replied to your comment. And what's with this American crap? For one, for anyone who looks at it this way, YOUR FROM CANADA! How can you esspecially talk about how it's just Americans who don't support their family? DO you not understand? You keep talking about that if it's the american stereo type that children don't care about their parents, yet it's oh so legal for your parent to take what belongs to you and rui

Thank you. My brother did something similar towards my step-brother. Seth (my brother) looks oddly like Jesse and stole his license and his car for a "night out". Harmless, right? Well Seth hit someone's car, a BMW something, and did a lot of damage. He ran away from the crime scene, was I.D.'s by the woman who was too busy trying to stop her eight year old son from crying. Jesse got the blame because the woman "recognized" him. It wasn't until Seth told me that we were able

ye, I know how you guys live(middle east) and you grow up with different culture and norms, expectations. you mostly still live with your family or the house next to, in some small village were overcomes close. where I come from it's different. children are expected to grow up and develop themselves, go through lifes challenges and find their own way.

Reply

Yes, 8, I'm sure there's a perfectly legitimate reason for ruining your son's credit without her knowing. And it's totally just an American thing to want to sue. Idiot.

Reply

You make the rest of us Canadians look bad. I get you should help family, I was raised the same way, but this is stealing, not helping out a parent.

I'm Australian and I agree with the law suit. I had an ex who's mother took out a massive loan and forged his signature on it and he lost his house, boat and car because of her..... The loan was for a five star holiday and Chanel hand bags

Reply

Sorry #8 but there's no excuse for this. If the mother needed money that badly she could have asked, not opened credit cards under her child's name without their consent. This is still considered identity theft and is HIGHLY illegal

I fail to see why you didn't call the cops to report a stolen identity to them...No mother that'd ruin her sons life deserves to be protected.

FYL. and sue her. seriously, why do the majority of humans have this "but they're family!" bullshit? even a slug can breed. forgiveness is for the weak.

Reply

Forgiveness is not for the weak. Just because you forgive someone does not mean that you exempt them from the consequences. Should there be forgiveness? Yes. Right this instant? No, there will be a lot to work through, like trust issues. Should forgiving mean that she is completely exempt from any and all consequences of her behavior? No. She obviously has not learned a very clear definition of right from wrong throughout her previous years and she needs to be corrected.

Reply

#13 - how is "forgiveness for the weak"? don't be a moron. and the OP should definately press charges, but forgive your mum she brought you up so she'd forgive you for doing so and "suing her ass" would make the OP into en evil heartless bastard anything he/she does do is going to destroy them dont make splitting up your family sound so flippant guys

Reply

Fatboyy I read your comments and just wonder what you were taught as a child. I understand not to be flippant when talking about breaking up a family but how does Op have a good family right now. This will either break the sucky family his mother has already created or make them stronger. You can't break up a true family, loving someone does not mean letting them take something that is rightfully your's and destroying your life. So stop being such a prig, Op has to report her or else he will be

RubixMonkey - i was taught to care for my family and other people i was taught to have opinions, and to stick by them and ultimately i was taught to have a life other than starting on people through comments on a fucking website. why dont you steal a credit card - you might actually have some thrill in your life outside of FML. get a life and stop arguing with me.

I don't want your credit card. I am also allowed to start fights, state opinions and whatever I want until a moderator cuts me off. If you don't like people arguing with you then get off the site.
