How do you not realize you haven't been paying bills? Pretty sure I'd notice that I had a lot, or ANY, money in the bank.

First of all ... My grandma was throwing away my outgoing mail, I own rental properties and I pay with money orders so I'm always right on my bank account, a lot of my payments are the same every month I never gave it a thought to double check, cause it's like clockwork. Even had I written checks my statements come quarterly. I keep copies of my money orders thankfully. As for my grandma we didn't realize she was this bad...

@19 Even without online banking, the OP should have noticed that something was amiss after the first month. His bills the following month would have arrearage charges on them. The FML only mentions that the outgoing mail was tampered with. Even if the incoming mail was tampered with though, the OP should have noticed a distinct lack of bills coming in.

Just the fact that OP didn't spend thousands of dollars that are usually spent over the course of three months should have been a big clue, even before the collection calls.

You can spell the first "your" right but couldn't the spell second one right? Welcome to the Twilight Zone.

Fuck both your lives here. She has dementia and you'll probably be in debt. :( very horrible indeed.

OP did make attempt to pay the bills, but his grandma interfered with the mail before it got to the recipient.

YDI... How do you not notice that you haven't received your bills in the mail? It's not as if they suddenly paid themselves off

Some people don't read... OP obviously did get the bills, did write the cheques, and did attempt to post them, at which point his grandma threw the OUTGOING mail in the trash without telling anyone.

#26 - OP is still at fault for not reconciling his or her bank account. Just because you write a check doesn't mean your bill has been paid.

Well excuse me for being human and accidentally misreading the post.. In either case OP deserves it, he should have noticed even when if he did receive his mail and open the statements to notice it said there was a missed payment

So you don't read your monthly statements showing you that you missed a payment? Should've noticed first month.
