Hire a good, not-mormon attorney! That's what I did.
My bishop nephew stole money from me and my brother, and we got half of it back. If we hadn't hired an attorney, we would not have recovered any of it.
You have to take the matter in your own hands. Be strong! My brother and I had indisputable proof, but the thief nephew is still in the bishopric, and still trying to steal money from family members and others. He claims he WON our case, because he got to keep half the money he stole. Sigh...I guess he did come out ahead....
In the Mormon cult, stealing is rewarded.
I'm sorry this happened to you! If the amount stolen is small, consider it the same as a college course, which can cost around $500, sometimes. A course on NOT having this happen to you EVER again!
Throw the thief out of your life. No contact is the only way to deal with psychopaths and sociopaths and criminals. Protect your children, family, and friends. I warned others about my nephew, to make myself feel better, but, even so, he conned my uncles out of tens of thousands of dollars, for him to start up a bogus business.
Unfortunately, sometimes all you can do is 1)save yourself from future damage, 2) warn others 3) legally try to recover what was stolen from you.
If you worry too much about "justice" or "punishment" or "revenge", you will be giving the criminal too much of your thoughts and time and health. It's best to put it all behind you, and say, "Never again!"
The Bible says, "GO (get out of my life) and sin no more!" The Bible does not say, "Forgive and let the thief continue to steal from you." No one gives that advice, except for Mormons.
