Re: Turning brother in for CC fraud

OP, it's obvious you care about your brother, but he stole from you, and he needs to have consequences to those actions. You don't want him to turn around and do this  to an elderly relative or anyone else because he got away with it when he did it to you. 

You need to turn him in so that you can get your own credit repaired. The only way you're going to get the companies and agencies to listen to you is if you do what you know is right, and turn him in. 

You're facing a decision you shouldn't have to face, but you didn't do anything wrong. Turning him in isn't doing anything wrong either. It may be the best thing you could possibly do for him. 

100+% agree with this!  You're in a tough spot.  Just think of it this way, if your brother cared as much about you as you do him he wouldn't have commited fraud against you.  Sorry, this is a crappy situation no matter how you look at it.

Never take credit personally
