Granny plans to sue daughter-in-law for stealing grandsons £600 birthday money


An angry gran has explained that she plans to sue her daughter-in-law after finding out she spent the money given to her son on herself.

The woman explained that she had a successful business and so had been saving money for her grandson’s university fees or for a deposit on his first house.

In addition, the grandparent gave her 15-year-old grandchild $800 (£600) for Christmas and birthday gifts.

Writing on Reddit, she said: "It's quite a hefty sum of money, but he is a great child and I believe he deserves the money.

"Well, recently he came forward and told me for five years that my daughter-in-law has stolen a lot of money from him, and some from my son as well.

"It turned out that she was spending a lot of money to herself and decided to pretend that my grandson's money would be going towards college funds (It was usually through gift cards, so how would it even go towards a college in the first place?)."

She continued: "Not only this but apparently he was barely even FED and didn't get basic necessities a lot of the time.

"Six years ago she broke up with my son, and dated a man who's salary was well enough to make sure my grandson was getting what he needs. They weren't in poverty."

The granny was fuming at she situation.

She said: "Not only was the money I gave my grandson to have fun being used by someone who I didn't even like in the first place, but my grandson was being neglected when they could have given him the basic necessities.

"I recently emailed my daughter-in-law, telling her how much she owes me and if she doesn't pay it back by the end of the year I'm getting my lawyers involved.

"Well, she was furious and started using the fact that her boyfriend is a 'military sniper' as a way to threaten me into dropping the charges.

"I told her I refuse to do so, and ignored her after that, knowing if she continued to threaten me all she is doing is incriminating herself."

But, not everyone in the family agreed with the grandparent.

She said: "My other son who is also an employee of mine said I was being too harsh on her and should have just let it go, and that I already have enough money as is to pay him back."

On Reddit commenters gave their verdict.

One said: "I rarely say this (and people tend to jump to it quickly for small things) but I recommend going to the police.

"The 'military sniper' threat may just be hot air but it's still a death threat."

While another said: "Good on you for standing up for your grandson, but if you seriously suspect neglect then it’s best to take some legal actions about it (if he’s a minor then there might be laws in your area about mandatory report of abuse and such)."

And a third noted: While a third said: "Go to the police and make a report of the threats she made on your life.

"Tell them that she has been taking money from him and neglecting him.”
