My friend is lying to social services to get benefits. She does illegal drugs around her kids. Should I report?
I am not this Mom's friend anymore because she continues to self-destruct with this behavior of hers over the last 6 years and I was afraid if she was caught doing the unlawful acts I could be charged as an accessory for not reporting it. I have not spoken to her in over a month, but I am half tempted to report to YMCA and social services what's going on as it's truly unlawful, but I'm afraid if she finds out it was me, she would send her husband after me to kill me or hurt me. Or her herself for revenge. What do I do? I wish I never knew this person and I thought she was my friend, but I cannot stand to let this happen to herself and her children. Mainly it's her children that are my concern. And it says by law if you know of a person in a situation like this or doing unlawful things to report, but I'm afraid to. Should I or not? What if she's caught one day and they find I was a friend of hers. I could be in trouble for not reporting it then too right?
