Using Mom's and Dad's credit cards

A friend of mine has been using his parents' credit cards, and he is close to maxing them out...$7000 credit line on each. He has a family and a house and lifestyle he can't afford. After his mother got sick, she gave him the cards so he could help her pay her expenses while ill. She's now forgotten he has them, and he's having a ball playing "big shot" to his friends who he takes out to dinner on them. He's also buying a lot of useless junk at auctions. In the meantime, all his other debts are going to collections, but so he doesn't get caught, he is vigilant about paying the minimums on these cards. One of the cards is his dead father's that was never cancelled....and since they have the same name, he's getting away with it. (He must use his mother's card online. He doesn't look like an "Edith.") I just hate seeing what his family goes thru because of all the debt they already know about.....but I really don't know what will happen when his mother and his extended family discovers what he has done. I know he can't cover his tracks forever.
Thanks, Folks! Littlesbigs
