Did he use the money without permission from his mother? How much was it?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

my mother knew I was borrowing money from her account but did not know the amount which was £25000 and used to try and recover a previous debt,to try and continue payment of her care home fees.this has all unfortunately backfired on me as my brother is now applying for deputyship order and wants to take me to the wall.

Thank you. Worst case is that you are arrested and charged with fraud by abuse of position under S. 4 of the Fraud Act 2006, which you can read about here:

However, if your mother agrees that you borrowed it with her consent, it would be a civil matter and you could try and repay the money borrowed.

Hope this helps
