Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Hi, I'm Heather, an attorney with 15 years experience and I'd like to assist you for informational purposes. Wow, what a difficult situation. It's likely that all of those guns are going to be charged back, and so, in my opinion, you need to contact each of the sellers and verify that the payment did go through. It is possible that one of the sellers may contact law enforcement, but if you are cooperative, you will fare better. However, it seems very strange that your friend owed you $5,000 and you don't even know his last name. If law enforcement are involved, they are probably going to be skeptical that you would have engaged in a transaction like that and not even known the person's last name.
Let me know if I have answered your question.
