Frankly, over 6 grand (unless we were both flat broke) I wouldn't put my brother in jail along with it's horrible treatment and the effect it would have on him the rest of his life. I'd face him like a man and tell him the accounts have been closed and ask how he's going to pay me back before I ever considered doing that to him. Blood is still thicker than money. I for one can replace money, I can NOT however replace a brother.
I think a lot of you are talking through your hats on this one!
I would put a freeze on my credit however first thing though regardless.
I'll tell you one thing for a fact, no matter what you think of your brother now, he will only come out of the prison system a much worse person and very resentful of you for life, you will no longer have that brother. Think about that before you listen to these "OH I GOT COJONES" blowhards. These people MAY watch a little too much "Doctor" Phil at times............
+1, well sorta
Have him pay the debts. Have him sell everything he owns to start paying you back.
If he isn't willing to pay, then I would start thinking about reporting him.
I personally would let my brother max every one of my credit cards if he was in a situation that required such action. Doing so without permission is another story completely, but if you parents or brother are willing to make you whole again. I would let it go.
Also, very well put RyVision.
