Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Hello, and thank you for contacting Just Answer and asking for me. I am an expert here and I look forward to assisting you today.
There is no need to pursue it. It is a scam, this is a common one, and even if you get a judgment you would never be able to collect it.
What you should do is contact the local office of the FBI and report it.
You can find the local office at www.fbi.gov
Why would it be a scam he is not asking for money?
He would have asked for money eventually.
Have you gotten an internet loan, a payday loan, or used an internet pharmacy or anything like that?
There is no such things as a "cyber crime being investigated by a cyber crime law firm". These would be investigated by some law enforcement agency not a law firm.
yes I have applied for a loan and I have had at least 50 calls a day. It is driving me crazy.
That's where they got your name from. They were going to claim that you hadn't paid a loan and committed fraud.
ok I feel better now.. I will contact the FBI and let them know. thank you
You're very welcome and don't worry, it is the beginning of a scam but you were smart enough to check into it before you got stuck!
Usually people contact us after they have already sent a bunch of money.
where is your law firm located in case I need help?
I'm from Texas but unfortunately none of the experts on here are allowed to take any cases that originate on the website.
It's part of the agreement that we sign.
ok.... thank you, XXXXX XXXXX good night.
Best wishes to you. Please don't forget to leave a Positive Rating (of course I'd suggest Excellent) so I get credit for my work.
my lawyer has been checking on it, he said that he tried to call them but no answere. left message. they called him back the next day and told him 'no comment' so he said that he has the authorities involved to find out why these people are bothering me and other people. He is running my social number through some database to see if anything comes up. He said there is nothing that has shown up, but state has not come inn and its been a week now. I asked him about it as he said sometimes no news is good news. He said that they are scammers but he wants me to come inn Tuesday. What do you think this means?
I am just wandering why state has not come back. If I am being investigated by them then would my attorney tell me? I have never had to use a lawyer before so I don't have a clue on whats going on.
he ran a check of my social through database to see if I had any warrants or anything. nothing anywhere on me or the government. but state has not replied.
can he tell me over the phone? or does he have to tell me in person?
ok, thanks for your time. I will give you an excellent rating....
