Hello,

I am seeking ideas on how to address an issue where a credit card was used by an in-law without permission. An in-law used my fathers card for over $5000+ of unauthorized purchases. The in-law was given the card to put gas in the car and then used it for other things signing the receipts under my fathers name. I personally wanted to call the police etc. but my father did not so I am trying to find a way to get the charges removed and applied to the in-law - I am just lost on what to do -

Thank you for any input

Any action needs to be initiated by your father since it's his credit card. If he's not willing to do that, then you're outta luck. Afterall he did give them the card regardless of any verbal agreement.

I agree with Tightwad. As the card is in your father's name, he will have to take steps in this regard. He will have to file charges against the in-law. Moreover, I guess, it will be difficult for you to remove the charges under your father's account and apply it on the account of the in-law.

I agree with the others. If it was just for gas, your dad should've considered giving them a gas card (shell, exxon, bp), or bought them a prepaid card worth 100 dollars, and if they chose to spend the $100 on junk food in the gas station, so be it. Lesson learned.

Sounds like a $5,000 dollar lesson on why you never give your credit card to anyone else. Me I'd confront the thief and make sure he knew not to be anywhere near me - ever.
