Ask a Business Lawyer. Get Business Law Questions Answered ASAP.
Hello and thanks so much for writing to me. I will need just a little bit more information before I can respond:
Can you explain in more detail please? You said you took some money for cars - was it cash money or postal orders or what? How much money have you lost out of pocket? What happened?
I'll look forward to your response!
BTW, sometimes there can be a delay of many hours before I can get back to you. Be patient; I won't forget you, and I can usually respond within no more than 8 hours.
1. Have you notified law enforcement? I suggest that you contact the FBI and tell them what happened.
2. You could get sued or you could get blamed for a crime. That's why I suggest that you go to the FBI and tell them what happened.
If you act quickly, law enforcement may be able to find the guy and catch him by following the money trail.
As far as what may happen - such as will you be charged with a crime - that question would be better for a criminal law expert.
Frankly, I think you need to hire a criminal defense attorney and be prepared for anything.
I wish I had better news for you.
