Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Hello - Thank you for contacting JustAnswer. My name is Michael; I look forward to helping you with your criminal problem today.
I'm sorry to hear about your situation. To be clear: you signed promissory notes for this money? And you're current on the payments?
Yes I signed several promisery notes and I am making payments.But PI is saying the Promisery notes mean nothing
The PI is trying to say I forced them into signing the notes.Which is clearly not true.1 note is in the Wifes handwriting,and 1 I made on the computer per the computer per their request
are you still there?
I'm sorry I didn't respond more quickly.
From what you have relayed, I don't see any way they can charge me with a criminal action. If they loaned you the money willingly and signed the promissory notes with intent, you did nothing wrong.
That's ok,can you answer my questions now
"charge you" I should have said.
They can't say I forced them into loaning me the money ,or swindled them into it?
That doesn't make any sense. A contract is a contract - it doesn't matter why they loaned the money.
Swindling is when you con someone out of money with no contract. In this case, you borrowed the money.
What if there a bunch of here say going around about Why I borroed the money?They say I tols them something totally different to borrow the money.I told them exactly what I needed,and they say I said different.Nothing was signed as to Why I loaned the money
That does not matter. A loan is a loan.
They signed a contract and loaned you the money.
I do not see any criminal acts.
ok,so why is the PI trying so hard to quiz us every single day and saying I Lied to borrow the money
I would have no idea why he was doing that. A private investigator is hired by the person and is not law enforcement. He may be trying to scare you into paying back all the money at once, who knows.
he's really pushing the issue that I lied to borrow the money however there was Never nothing in writing as to why I borred it.Just here say stuff...Lies going around everywhere
I would stop talking to anyone about it and go about your business, you don't have the duty to speak to anyone about it.
Please read my comment.
No He's PI from the police Dept trying to pursue charges against me
Then stop talking to him at all. Ignore his calls.
they also say its financial exploittation of the elderly However the people are not vulnerable or incompitant
If he charges you, hire a defense attorney and you should be able to easily beat the charges. I assume that he won't file charges though because there appears to be no criminal act.
is this financial exploitation ?They are completely compatant people
You keep asking the same question and my answer is the same. I know you're worried and scared, but please listen to what I'm saying. I do not see a criminal act. They loaned you the money. You have no duty to talk to the officer or anyone else about this. Ignore all calls or visits from authorities and don't explain yourself. If they do happen to charge you, hire a criminal defense attorney and you should be able to get out of the charge. Again, I see nothing criminal from what you have posted.
Ok,And I am sorry.Your right Im scared.I Thank you for your time.You have helped a great deal
No problem. I wish you the best of luck and think you'll be fine.
If I can answer anything further, let me know. Remember, I'm here to help and your satisfaction is guaranteed. If you don't have any questions and you valued my time, I'd ask you to consider rating me positively. Take care,Michael
Well it's been 5 months now since I've been quuestioned,and I just found out that the papers just got sent over to the County Attorney on February 25th.For Review.I was informed that the Couple is still saying I lied to borrow the money,and that they never agreed to monthly payments.They said I told them I had a settlement I was paying them with.This is not true,They just told their son this to keep him off their backs for borrowing me the money.I have been making my monthly payments.They are saying I talked them into signing the loan agreement.In whicjh I didn't.They signed it on their own will.Do you think the County Attorney will pursue any charges?And if so,what charges?
How do you know the age of the Borrower's,and how do you know the monthly payments are low?And they are fully compitant and reviewed and signed a loan agreement
Well I really Respect you for this Sir.So do you believe All the other Experts gave me Sugar Coated Answers?And that they were just lying to me to keep me paying and coming back?
