How can I file a lawsuit against an ex-roommate that used my credit cards without authorization, did not pay her share of rent and sold my car and did not even tell me?
JA: When we are ready I'll take you to the appropriate web page.
Customer: Thank you.
JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: I'm in California.
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: I made a police report, but we went back and forth then they decided it was considered a civil case and not criminal "because I knew and shared the same unit with this thief"
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: This roommate left me without a place to leave; I could not continue to pay the high rent on my own; she ran my credit cards to exceed their limit in a very short time, financially left me in a bind, because I had to pay her debt, including a loan
she got in my name, she sold my car so I was left without it. I concluded she was a con person and a fraud. I tried to get her to make payments, but she refuses. I want to file lawsuit, but can't afford lawyers. I decided I can try to do this by myself.
