BM commits fraud
OK, I wrote earlier about how BM now takes 50% of DH salary. It wasn't always that way, but the "extra-ordinary" expenses have gone way up, and since she doesn't work we pay 80% of these expenses.
Now it's gotten even worse. We are currently paying 80% of braces for SD14. The total bill was $6800, so these are not cheap braces. We are on a monthly payment plan for 2 years. Anyway, BM has been saying that SD12 now needs braces. DH told her fine, we'll pay, but not untill SD14's braces are paid for, which will be in 7 months.
Well yesterday DH gets a phone call from dentist saying that SD12 braces were put on ON DECEMBER 2nd!!! This was done without our knowledge. The dentist says the BM said we'd OK'd it all and the additional amount will be coming out of his account, that all the paperwork has been done. The dentist has his account information for braces #1, and has somehow recieved the approval to start deducting 2X that amount! SD12 braces are $6400!!!
BM lives far away, and so all this was done over the phone and my husband never signed anything saying this new amount could be deducted. I don't how she did it, but it must be illegal and is also just so mean and nasty.
I've never met a more self-centered, entitled bitch in all my life. She has ZERO concern for our 2 kids, and how this will affect them. What kind of person does this?! And WTF? Any advice? The braces are on, She doesn't work, lives off child support and government handouts. Are we just stuck paying?!
