Based on the facts as you have stated them, I would be inclined to agree with your husband as it appears that there is no need for any response. You have not worked for the family for sometime and there has been very little contact from the daughter. My suspicion is that she is making empty threats. As you have not done "anything wrong", then there clearly cannot be any evidence of wrongdoing on your part. That being the case, you should have no reason to worry.

But why threat going to the police? What does the police have to do with her accusing me of fraud? If she strongly feels that I committed fraud why not file a case directly and we can battle and prove my innocence thru the court instead of giving threats. And if she calls the police what is going to happen? Can she actually do that and call the police? What is the process of such case? (I am comparing to movies I watch when they call the police and they arrest the person). Sorry for these questions, it might be too basic, but like I said, I have never encounter such and even any threats. Also, she was in prison when her parents hired me and she was not even involved in the discussion.
Please understand that I cannot possibly tell you WHY she is making threats to call the police, I do not know this woman nor how she thinks. As to whether she CAN call the police, sure, of course she can. However, if she does, the police would likely then come talk to you to ask about the situation and you would tell them what you have described here. Based on that, my suspicion is that nothing more would come of it.
