Hi - just wondering if I could get some advice.

 

My daughter's boyfriend upped and walked out one day leaving the tenancy (in both their names) and a pile of debts. All credit cards were taken out in her name (about £15k), money borrowed from us (her parents) which amounts to £3000 and utility bill debts, some of which are in both their names.

 

The last thing he took with him was a phone that she had recently taken a contract out with (because he was denied credit) and has consequently run up a bill amounting to £100.

 

She mistakenly thought that he would be reasonable and they would come to some agreement regarding the debts - he has since said that he didn't sign anything (regarding the credit cards and the money owed to us) and would not be discussing this further.

 

She has now blocked the SIM card but hasn't blocked the phone as he has stated to police he has the phone and will give it back with witnesses. This was over a week ago and he has made no attempt to give the phone back. The police have said they will not act in retrieving the phone either.

 

I've said to my daughter that the best course would be to add the phone to the long list of money that she won't get back and get the phone blocked as well.

 

Does anyone have any other suggestions? I'm perplexed how some people just have no morals whatsoever! :-x

This one will be very difficult, you could take action via the courts but in reality, will you ever be paid? Unless he has assets, judging by his previous action, the answer is probably no so it may be throwing good money after bad. The only consolation would be he has a ccj for a further 6 yrs on his file.

 

Sadly my daughter had a similar experience with an ex whi wouldnt return expensive goods and the police werent intersted either, she had a hard lesson to learn to never trust anyone with her money and goods again.

 

Whilst it seems unfair, there really is little you can do other than issue a claim but getting a judgement and getting the money are 2 very different things.
