Please call me at XXX-XXX-XXXX as I can explain quickly...if that's possinle
Ok..complicated..but quick breakdown
I dated a crazy woman
This woman actual went to prison for fraud
When we were dating she had her aunt send her $59, 000
The money was sent to my account
At the time it seemed fine as the aunt voluntarily semt the money
Upon receiving the money I withdrew and gave to the crazy gf
She said she was going to take care of her aunt since her aunt could no longer take care of herself
Soon thereafter the crazy gf goes nuts and hoots the aunt
The aunt wants her money back
Crazy gf obv keeps it
Year later after fearing for my life I flee the crazy woman
I was homeless for awhile because of this crazy woman
Only days agter fleeing and while homeless the aunt gets a holdbof me and tells me that the crazy girl has been arrested
She senses my complete deterioration as a human and tells me that if I sign a paper sayinh that I owe her the money...that she wouldn't press charges against me
Being depressed and homeless...I do
Ober a year later I finally get a job..
The aunt tells me I must start paying her
Out of fear I do..and have been ever since
I've paid over $15, 000 in 2 years
I can't afford $500 a month anymore as I have a family
I offered her $200 a month or a payoff of around $8000 jist to rid myself of this god awful situation
She says if I pay any less than $500 or $13, 000 payoff that she will jow sue me
I don't know what to do. I've paid all these years out of fear and feeling terrible that this poor old lady got screwed. But its hurting my family and I'm tired of paying this crazy woman's debt from the money she stole
Please help me understand my options
Any thoughts yet pal?
No it was fraud for several other cases. Us marshals were after her for years and I had no idea.
I just want to know that if I keep paying her..regarsless of the amount. ..am I showing good faith and ami legally ok?
Or do I need to keep it $500?
