I got woken this morning by the house phone ringing. I let the machine get it. Some woman was looking for Hubs? She left a # and said it was urgent.
Oh &$^@! I didn't recognize the area code, and after stepson's illness I was afraid of the worst. I called Hubs immediately and played the message for him. While we were talking about who-what-where-etc, the house phone rang again. I answered.
It turned out to be the wife of the yahoo that stole our truck! Turns out he defrauded her out of a LOT of $, wrote checks on her account (read that as "bounced") abused her, left her stranded with no$ and no food, you can get the idea.
She finally made it back to PA, and went and filed charges against him. While she was cleaning his stuff out of her car, she found Hubs' keys and paperwork for his rig. She got help today to get our phone# and called.
I've been on the phone with her on and off for several hours. She went ahead and gave the police there the info on the stolen truck report, so her pd should be contacting york today. Apparently, her "husband" (she will be getting a divorce asap) is in a jail in KY or TN (I have thye facility name and # written down that she gave me). She apparently knows nothing about what he did with our truck or where it is.
She gave us his real name, and the police now have that, his ss#, birthdate, etc.
I have no idea what is going to happen now. I don't event know if everything she told me is true. I don't like that I'm not trusting, but her husband screwed Hubs and I over pretty badly. I'm trying to give her the benefit of the doubt (of which there is a LOT) but Hubs is pretty skeptical.
We'll see what happens next. Stayed tuned for the next episode of "the flying pig"...
