Report her to the police for fraud. Take her to small claims court for the money. Go to the police department that has jurisdiction over where the check was cashed (i.e., if the check was cashed at an Orlando bank, contact Orlando PD). Ask to fill out a statement in which you admit to cashing the check but deny all knowledge that it was stolen and forged. The reason you want to do this is that if the Dad already made a report, it's going to be very hard for you to prove you didn't know what you were doing and you could be charged for uttering a forged check. By proactively making a statement to the police, you're saying you're not guilty and you had nothing to do with the incident. This is important because in many states uttering a forged check is a felony. Believe me, this is what I do all day. Make a statement and hope your friend tells the truth.

NOT unless it was stolen. Stolen cars are reported stolen. Cars securing a loan in DEFAULT are reported as DELINQUENT to the credit bureau. If you choose to report the car stolen, go ahead. I would not reccommend it though. Filing a false police report is illegal in most jurisdictions.
