He hasn't done that yet, but obviously he is desperate and I can't trust him. We don't have extra $$, so it's not like there is a lot to be divided up.

You might also run a credit report on yourself to make sure he has not opened any accounts you don't know about. You can run one on him too. All you need is a Soc #. If you do run one on him I believe he can tell that you did it, so you may want to be careful with that. You can get one free per year I believe.

Glad you're being careful about the money. There are too many stories of one person getting cleaned out and taking years to pay off the other person's debt.

If I were in your situation, I would have called his mother, too. I think you made the right decision for you. I can understand how some people could think that is overstepping your boundaries, but sometimes you need other people to know what is going on so they can help you protect yourself.

I honestly don't see anythingw rong with what you did. I hope everything works out in your favor.
