I need to know of what steps I should take. My father apparently used my credit cards which were left at home while I was on vacation I learend about this after moving to a new state.

The total amount is more than 8 thousand dollars charged on my cards. I have tried every method to resolve it but he is unwilling to pay.

I can not afford to pay any of this I'm tired of it and he must face the penalites please tell me what can I do and how should I go about it?

I was never in any of those areas where the credit cards were used I was more thant 1000 miles away.

My response:

Read the back of one of your Statements. There, you'll find instructions for reporting fraudulent use of your credit card. The CC company will investigate, and if fraud is found, you will only be liable for $50.00, and your father can be prosecuted for fraud and grand theft. Hefty jail time is in his future.

Imagine,

The credit card companies may require you to obtain a Police Report that the cards were stolen. In their investigation, you will likely be targeted as a possible suspect. Be aware of this and do not be shaken or angered too much when the questions become accusatory. You have the right to remain silent. You might do well to contact your local prosecuting attorney's office for advice and victim/witness counselling first.

This is not legal advice and I am not an attorney. Double check everything with your own attorney and your state's laws.
