first I hope your furbaby gets well soon. Second don't dismiss it too fast. This is exactly the kind of thing my mother would do when i was growing up, And on top of it I would be asked "why are you doing this to me" if she had come home. My mom would have continued working,,,,

so while it may be fake it may not. There really are parents out there like that

I actually considered that, that's why I put "My first reaction was to tell you to...." and then went on to suggest surveiling the property and taking legal action :)

Interesting that the OP hasn't been back.

I am so creeped out. I am so glad you changed your locks! You could have gone a step further, and told him you had digital surveillance on your property.

I'll take a chance that this story is real...a while back I read a post somewhere about a neighbor using a key to enter a home and use the computer and I'm guessing that it was yours? What should you do about this now? I would contact the police and explain the situation to see if its still possible to file a report about the illegal entry. In the event that things turn ugly later it would be good to have some history on file.

Ideally your husband should grow a pair and go over to the neighbor's and tell him in no uncertain terms to stay away from your house and away from his wife and family. If your dh won't do it maybe the cops could talk to dh, or maybe the cops will talk to neighbor about trespassing. The guy won't like you anymore but who cares. His parents may also hate you, or they may be mortified that their son let himself into your house without permission. Since you don't have an actual witness (unless your dd actually saw that it was the neighbor) its all speculation so they might not believe you. If there is any retaliation at least the police were told about the original incident.

Even though you personally knew the intruder you should have called the cops while the guy was in your house, he was trespassing/illegally in your house. Same as if a total stranger was in your house. That would have taken care of him coming over or being too friendly, but its too late for that now. Since your dd was hiding how did she know what the guy was doing? Maybe he was at the computer at first but he could have gone on to rob you or set your house on fire or who knows what...especially if he found your daughter.

Agreed. Not only would the police have been called, I would have been in my car on the way home immediately.
