Why did you let her have the phone to do this? Did you advise the people that this was not you? Have they contacted you about this?
Thank you. If the phone was taken and used without your permission, you should have contacted the police and filed a report. This way, it was documented and if someone came back and tried to go after your criminally or civilly, it could be shown that you did not do this and on record that it was done to this girl. Moreover, the police could have decided to take action against her and arrest and charge, if there was a basis to support it. What might happen is that someone may contact the police and report this. The police will then determine if there is a basis to charge and then they will investigate the matter. It would be then that you could and would need to reveal what this girl did and turn her information over to the police, to speak with and investigate her.
Yes, I would at this point. You need to protect and act in your best interest and if you are proactive about this, could present problems down the road.
