Two ways to approach this.

1) Unauthorized used of your credit cards and taking money from others on your behalf is considered identity theft, credit card theft and theft of your money. These are crimes which you can press charges, get him arrested and seek restitution.

2) You can sue him for repayment of all the amounts he has taken. Do not take his word for it as he will not follow through. Once you sue and get a judgment in your favor, you can then seek enforcement of the judgment if he pays to fail. Enforcement typically is placing liens on his property.

Hi, as I have stated, one way is to press charges for the theft and fraud related activity. You don't need a lawyer for this as you are reporting the crime to the police for them to investigate and take action.

To sue you do not need a lawyer. Most major book stores how "how to" sue which contains the instructions and forms for you to fill out. I was searching online for the Pennsylvania court forms and found the complaint form which you can access here. However it appears like it is lacking the summons, so I suggest you contact the court clerk to see if it is a complete form. I would also suggest you buy a how to sue book at the book store as it will explain the process completely for you.
