    I would. £20,000 is quite a big sum of money and I would be extremely ****** off if I had that amount stolen, especially if it was stolen by someone I trusted like a family member.

    I used to take a tenner from my mum's purse when she was taking a shower.

    So I guess I'd believe in karma if she were to steal £20,000 from me.

    I would give it to her if she asked. But as she stole it I would have to sue her or call the police.

    It just doesn't make sense because my mum would never do that.

    If she did, she'd have some extremely good reason, so no I wouldn't.

    Also she's my mum and spent like £200,000 bringing me up.

    Completely agree. I'm lucky enough to not even be able to imagine my mum doing this. Plus if I had all that money and I thought she needed some, I would feel too awful to just let it sit there.

    "another day in the ghetto" nah I'm joking...

    How, in this day and age, can people do this and not be made to pay the money back, or be covered by some of fraud cover? :/

    I can't imagine my mum ever ever doing that. Even when struggling my mum would never expect anything from me. So if it ever were to happen then I probably would press charges, it would be like discovering that I never really knew my mum at all

    Yes.

    Theft is theft no matter who it is doing it.

    However if I had that kind of money and my mother asked for it, with a good reason for needing it, then I would of course lend it to her but only if it was genuinely needed and not just to be wasted on something unnecessary.

    If I'm lucky enough that in a few decades I could earn enough, I'd be giving at least that much to both my parents just for having to put up with me growing up. I'm forever in their debt.

    That being said, I'd never be able to forgive either parent if they stole £20,000 from me, knowing full well that I intended to settle down and get married with it. That being said, I can't really say that I'd sue them for it, but I'd definitely feel utterly betrayed by them and maybe even ignore them from then on. Regardless of how much they've spent on me over the years, it's still theft. If they needed the money for anything important, I'd happily have given them the money, but to steal that much for the sake of a few holidays, movies and haircuts? Hell no.

    This.

    If my mum could resort to stealing from me, it'd have to be a very good reason for which I cannot possibly sue her for.

    I can't believe some people would actually sue their mother for stealing their money. That woman probably went through hell and back to push you out of her vagina then spent tons of money to raise you and you can't forgive and forget?

    Because of money??!! :confused:

    But if she did - yes I would.

    Wouldn't need to think twice and I'd wipe the floor with her as well. You lose the 'mother' title when you do things like that. Especially when the daughter was saving up for a house deposit and a wedding.

    I don't care who you are and just having a title i/e brother, sister, mother. That means nothing to me if you do something like that to me.
