Work politics/ethics advice

I need advice, guys.

Back in May, I applied for a job that sounded just perfect for me. I found out about it rather late and faxed my resume in just two days before the deadline. Well, I never heard back from them, not even for a phone interview, and then the start date came and went so I gave up on it. I ended up getting a job at the same company, a lower position with less pay and responsibility, but I liked it okay anyway. I eventually became friends with the person who got the job I had originally applied for (we'll call her A). It turns out that at the time of her hiring, she was already employed by the company and the week that I had faxed my resume in, the HR director was out of town and part of A's responsibility at the time was collecting the faxes. She flat out told me that when she saw a competitor's resume that was better/more qualified than hers, she simply threw it out to better her chances of getting the position. I'm 99.9% sure she did that with mine because, honestly, I am definitely more qualified for the job than she is. I'm kind of fuming, and I guess now the question is... do suck it up and let it go? Do I tell her that I had applied for that job? Do I tell her boss?


Edit: thanks for the advice. I guess I'm just going to keep quiet. It HAS been almost six months and I don't have any evidence anyway. I'll just keep an eye on her... and put laxatives in her coffee every morning. Ha, just kidding.
