My son is on probation and is recently being hounded by

my son is on probation and is recently being hounded by phone calls claiming to be some Orando County collections office saying he owes money for rentals that were never returned 8 years ago. he gets different calls from different phone numbers and no one can provide him with written documentation of what the actual charges are. he is being threatened with arrest warrants for grand larceny and grand theft, which would not only violate his probation but could result in years behind bars. there has been no other contact - by mail or otherwise - except these phone calls. we need to determine if this is legitimate or not - any idea how to do that?JA: Okay, I'll connect you to the Lawyer to go over that information with you. Before I do, is there anything else you want the lawyer to know?Customer: this same scenario played out earlier this year - feb/march time frame. my son called both the Orange County Sheriff, his probation officer, and an office in Texas (where the calls were originating from). they all told him this was a scam to collect money with the threat of jail. we think it may be the same thing, but want to make sure

The issue is Harrassment. I have a brother with two felonies

My name is ***** ***** the issue is Harrassment. I have a brother with two felonies (drugs & stolen property). He has threatened me in the past, once in front of a Sheriff. The Sheriff "sugar coated" it by saying, He didnt mean it, it was just talk. I dont know if it was documented or not. Since then the brother drives by my house everyday, sometimes several times a day. Often he parks at the end of my driveway and stares at the house for a few minutes before pulling away. This has been going on for several years. He often uses different vehicles, never his own. I have not gone to the police again because I feel they wont do anything about it. Should I see an attorney and what can I expect to be done about it? His son, my nephew also does it with his friends. Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue? Customer: He has always been an abuser. He abused his ex-wife and his kids. He also abuses animals and many people know about the animals though he has never been charged.

My son is a mechanic. A couple years ago he took out a loan

My son is a mechanic. A couple years ago he took out a loan for a tool box. They said he would need a co signer. His girlfriend at the time agreed over the phone with the loan officer to co sign. My son recently fell behind on the loan because the job he was employed with wasnt paying much. He now has a new job and is making very good money. He has an agreement with the loan company to start repaying the loan, with payments starting 12/1/16. My son says that his ex never signed anything just gave her info to the tool rep. This was 2 yrs ago. The issue is, she is saying that my son commited fraud and gave the loan company her info without her consent. She has now filed fraud charges against my son and has gotten the police involved.
