I had a woman call DCF on me because she wanted custody of my son; she was a single parent and had a little boy and wanted to "save" my little boy and take him in when he got taken away. She falsified the DCF record to the extreme saying my older daughter had scaring on her face from cigarette burns... I was pregnant and didn't smoke at the time... and no scars were on her face... DCF showed up... laughed at the situation; said I am a wonderful mother and am doing right by my children and to press charges against the woman. Since then; I have been threatened by every "teenage mother" that I get upset or get into a spat with that they are going to call DCF and get the kids taken away and that will "show me". I was wondering if anyone else had these run in with the rights of DCF being abused? And if so; I was wondering if anyone like me has thought about whether or not the rights of DCF being abused is the cause of a lot of mistakes on DCF's part leading to the death of abused children. Should people REALLY be able to call in Anonymously? Due to this reason people ARE abusing DCF because they feel that they will get away with falsifying the report.

I am absolutely disgusted that someone would falsify something as serious as child abuse just because they wanted your child. That woman should be institutionalized. Her children should be taken from her due to mental instability.
