Report her NOW. And make sure the cops write down those threats as well. Let them see her WITHOUT her black eye first, which adds credibility to you later on if she does do that. Tell them to write it in their reports to make sure...

Police are well aware that more than 50% of accusations by females of rape and such matters are falsified. They just don't make these statistics public because it has the feminists all up in arms, but they know.

And what exactly is this relationship you have with her? Some X girlfriend that you can't get rid of? Are you still living with her or what?

It's an ex girlfriend and we both share rent with 3 others in a house. Because her and I are on bad terms and different schedules we like never see each other even though we are under the same roof. Most nights I don't think she comes home because I never hear her car come and go and it has a distinct noise to it.

I am afraid. She has since said she will also tell my parents embarrassing things I want no one to know about me. I know what I should do is not let her get away with this but I would rather pay $200 for the credit card charges then go through the torment I am being threatened with.

So what is she going to tell you parents that is so embarrassing that you're willing to let her blackmail you? That you had gay impulses once upon a time? That you still have Freudian dreams about your mother in bed? That you still pleasure yourself from time to time? Who cares, it's your parents, it's not the end of the world. Everyone is human and has done/thinks things they are not proud if, it's called BEING HUMAN.

Worse comes to worse, just say your GF is lying then if she follows through. If she is your X and trying to make you look bad, then they will understand.

Anyhow, don't tell me you haven't already changed your CC number. And you better hide all that stuff away from her. Go and buy one of those small safes to hide your important documents in so she can't snoop around with them. And best of all, try to get the hell out of there and away from her.

But since you won't call the police on her, there isn't that much now we can do. You're basically letting her get away with anything she wants. Hopefully you will be more careful with your next girl-friend down the road. There are plenty of gold-diggers around, so you'll always have to be on the watch-out for that, especially since you seem to let them run you over so easy.

Nope. You should simply report her to the police and to the credit card company.

The police can charge her with attempted extortion (blackmail). She could go to prison. But most likely IF YOU ACT FIRST AND PROMPTLY they will simply talk to her, warn her to pay up and stay away from you and that will be it. If she follows through with her threat after you tell the police she threatened to make up a story then they are going to have a very hard time believing her. If you wait, she will be believable.

Perhaps you are just trying to be nice. But you are being an idiot if you do not report this right away!

Amen to this! You need to grow up. I'm not trying to be mean, I'm trying to help. This girl can say all kinds of stuff about you, embarrassing or not. People will believe some of it but generally will not care. They will see here for what she is.

And if you actually think your friends, your parents, your teachers, your minister, or whoever else you would be embarrassed to have never done or thought anything kinky or whatever...well, trust me, they have! Yup, your mom, your dad...so don't worry about it, Just smile and leave them all guessing about what part is true and what part she is making up.

The bottom line is that she stole money from you and is trying to blackmail you. She is bad news. Don't let her get away with it.

An update, I came home from work last night and she had packed up all of her belongings and left. The roommate the was home said he wasn't told what went down or where she went. This had to have been planned because there are things throughout the house that were not forgotten like candles, DVDs, dishes and computer printer that were hers and those were all gone. This must have happened during the late afternoon because when I was home at 2 pm yesterday things were normal. I don't know if my roommate clueless or knows more than he's saying but she told him to keep it secret. My other roommate comes back on Monday and I am going to find out if he knows what happened. Should I still try and get payment without knowing where she went to?

No, definitely not! Do NOT get payment from her. EVER!

Do NOT call the cops, ever!

In fact, if you see her again, I suggest you give her all your other CC numbers and let her know it's ok to use them as much as she wants.

Dude, you have let this go so long now that you have seriously complicated the situation. You are required to report fraud immediately, not after you worry about being embarrassed, wonder what your roommates think, etc.

You really need to grow up and act like an adult. Alternatively you should just do a search for "Nigerian scam website" and look for a forum to post all your credit card numbers to.

Seriously, I do not understand your problem. You should have reported this weeks ago. Whether she moved out and all that makes no difference.

Stop posting to forums and call the credit card company and file a police report.

Ha! I do feel bad for the guy though, you can't blame him for wanting to avoid conflict. That is the way some people are. I do agree with you guys though that this is a battle he should have chose to fought.
