My Ex late DH was a beggar, moocher, and scammer all rolled into one and he was dingdangity proud of it. His biggest scheme was getting out of paying child support, because I worked so I should be able to support her just fine (his mother's exact words). They took the money out of his paycheck so I knew he would call every other Friday with a sob story. And if I didn't hand it over (one time I gave him $100 for new brakes because I knew they were bad) he would not show up when promised to see our DD and he would tell her it was my fault because I couldn't help him out
. So, him and his new gf (in a long line each skankier than the last) Heroin Hannah, decided to just leave for Florida one night (while DD was on a visitation with him...he left her at his parents with no word that he was leaving) and he got a job there. When they nailed him there for support (don't know how but they did and this was when I found out where he was) he quit and went to another job, where he used his bother's SS#. His brother didn't need it..he was incarcerated (again) for assaulting his gf (again). I found this out from someone about 6 months after, but by this time they were back and both hooked on heroin. So because he was getting letters from the courts about the back support he called me with a proposition...if I went to court and told them he was not her father
, they would stop the support and he would give me money every month. When I politely
explained that was not how it worked he attempted to assault me. When I moved shortly after, I got a forwarded letter from a magistrate about 1 hour away addressed to him at my old address, one he NEVER lived at (we had been split 8 years at this point). It seems he missed a court date for retail theft (yeah, like I didn't know the bag of clothes with security tags still attached you gave DD for her birthday wasn't stolen..threw them out with her blessing). I called magistrate and informed them of the fact he didn't live at my address and had proof, they not only charged him with FTA, but giving false information
. He got angry that I wouldn't go along with this scheme (and I did not inform him I had moved). He also asked me for a copy of our marriage license because he needed that for ID purposes. I did not give him that although he threatened me in front of my co workers. Him and heroin Hannah also opened a credit card in my name...took awhile but got that fixed. Is it any wonder that I made the comment when he passed in February that I was relieved?
