stolen checks in Crimes Defined Posted October 22, 2012 · Report reply I am aware of a daughter who has been posing as her deceased mother and passing herself off to be her mother..passing bad checks..getting her social security checks, retirement checks...the banks have been notified to close the accounts but these things seem to continue to be happening ..what can be done to stop this, to persecute this as I find it very repulsive Can't imagine why any of this is your business, but you can file reports with the appropriate authorities and agencies. You'll probably have to identify yourself and sign stuff. If you want to do that, then go for it. Anonymous phone calls aren't likely to result in any action. Otherwise, let it run its course. She'll eventually get caught and suffer the consequences.
