I had to get a new phone and although I did not have the internet service activated the phone will use wi-fi and my probation team is accusing me of using the phone to access sites I am not supposed to. Also, I have to provide bank statements and there are recurring charges on my statements from this website. I have consistently tried to get the charges stopped however they continue. I have been on the phone for a an hour and a half, getting the run around trying to have the charges stopped.
They made the accusation just based on the fact that my phone has wi-fi capabilities. They haven't seen the bank statement yet but I do have to provide it.
I need to get some kind of proof from the website that I haven't accessed it in any way. For instance, my probation team can say that I used someone else's computer because the charges are on my bank statement. Do you have any suggestions or would that require a court order also to obtain usage from the website? Is a court order something I can do on my own or do I need to use an attorney?
