I just found out tonight that my husband's almost 24 year old son charged up over $16,000 in medical bills to my husband's insurance. He used our insurance info and it's now on our credit report. We found out it's gone to collections, and we never knew anything about it! His mother taught him to commit fraud many years ago, and she's been doing this to us for years. She taught her 20 year old daughter to do it, too, and we've gotten three bills for her just last week. (She always takes her to out of network providers, so they want us to pay what the ins. won't cover). The mother managed to get child support for that one until after she turned 19!!!!
We wanted to get our cars paid off we've been working really hard to pay off our credit cards. So, my husband spent ten months in Afghanistan for work, to make extra money. We'll have our last credit card paid off in just a few months.
It was hard on our 10 year old son and 8 year old daughter, and my husband worked seven days a week, with two weeks off in ten months, so we could get our bills paid off after 15 years of child support for those two. (Thank GOD that's over, at least!)
How can we work so hard, and sacrifice so much, to have our credit scewed up by a drug-addicted, homeless, jobless, divorced, suicidal thief? We haven't seen him in years, because I won't allow my kids to be around him. Has anyone else been through anything like this? I just want to know that I'm not alone . . . .
