Not sure if this is the correct bit to start this in but here goes. My son now sees his dad on a regular basis but over the weekend something came to light which made me feel really physically sick. He is being taken to court by trading standards and I saw paperwork for the prosecutions case which says hes been ripping off elderly people and carrying out work for them at inflated prices . I know I shouldnt have read this but human nature and being nosey I carried on. There are lots of cases being hilighted and also money laundering as they used one pub to cash the cheques apparently. WTF do I do now I have this info? God strike me down for being a nosey old bird but god this makes me want to throw up its so bad.. He has mentioned a court case but the details he gave me differ greatly from the ones I read about!!!! Also if hes paying me maintenance could I get into trouble if the money laundering is going on?

its is tough and it took me a while to let him back in but I dont want to undo any relationship between him and his son. I will see how things pan out.

bogeyface- he has been advised a prison term will be applicable and based on all the cases they have against him I think he will go down if proven guilty.

Unless he puts your son in any danger, you have no right to stop him seeing his son.

Also, he hasn't even gone to court yet!

No. Your son is entitled. Seems to me if you have evidence and don't pass it on you are open to a charge of Preventing the Course of Justice at least!
I suppose you've considered he might have you involved somehow.

Thomas1969- Ok I have had no inolvement in his business at all and hes only been seeing his son again since Sept last year. I dont think therefore he would have involved me in anyway with this or am I being a bit naive?
