I am sorry to hear that. you can file a claim in court for an injunction in court having them ordered to return the data but you need to be able to identify this individual and serve them with legal notice.

I'm a student now,I don't have money
What do you recommend my next move?
Expert:  Asad Rahman replied 3 months ago.

You can file on your own without an attorney. Go to the local court house and ask for the motion for injunctive relief form.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
But the scammer are probably in Philippine.....is that still gonna work?
Expert:  Asad Rahman replied 3 months ago.

I see. I would still file it and maybe that will scare them enough. I think this may be fraudulent however.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I'm hope it won't send it to my friend on facebook...it will tears me apart...
So I should fill out the form of injunctive relief form and what should I do after that?
Is it still possible to trace them?
Expert:  Asad Rahman replied 3 months ago.

You will have to do that. You can see if the FBI or the police can trace them down..
