We moved three months ago. A month ago, my 90 year old father mailed us a holiday check, as he does every year, and forgot about our new address. He mailed it to our old house. The post office is still supposed to be forwarding our mail, but they didn't. Well, he kept calling to as k if we got the check. We figured it was just taking time because of the forwarding. Today he called his bank and found it had been cashed. It had no bank name on the check, just a code, and will need 24-48 hours to track down so we assume she went to some seedy fast loan place. She cashed it for Pamela Smith (not my real last name) in care of Rachel White (not her real name, but she did use her real name.) And they must have taken her driver's license and cashed it. Luckily we know all the cops well in our old village and the cop took it seriously. He is going to call my dad for more info. The woman lives in our old house.We found her Facebook where she is so tired of unpacking and is an Avon lady and a newly wed (for the fourth time. We found that on the internet. She has also been changed before for fraud regarding money). Interestingly, she has made friends with somebody I was close to.She had pictures of the inside of our old house so we know where she lives. We even saw a littel green tennis ball in the kitchen. That belonged to my yorkie mix who likes to play fetch...lol. Amazing she didn't pick it up yet. We do not believe this husband knows she did this. He's going to be surprised when the cops show up. Does anyone have any idea if we have any chance of getting this money back? Should we just wait and let the cops do the work? We know so many people who know her and it is ungodly tempting to call her and let her know we know, but that would accomplish nothing so it won't happen. Thoughts? Hints? Advice? Similar experiences? My dad is REALLY upset that this could happen. That's the saddest part. He is not very involved in the world as it is now...he is shocked that anyone would do that or that the check could be cashed without me being the one signing it. He is very naive and he doesn't need this.
