I live in New Jersey, and was a victim of fraud, property

I live in New Jersey, and was a victim of fraud, property damage, and extortion last summer from a group of people. I am saving money for a criminal attorney as I have the evidence on video and phone recordings.What is the statues of limitations for this crime in my state of New Jersey. If I only have a year, does that mean the person(s) need to be 'charged' with this crime within a year - or does it mean I can start proceedings with a criminal attorney to 'start' the investigation i.e. accuse them at the least?Thank you.

. In July of last year I made a deal with a guy on craigslist

Hi. In July of last year I made a deal with a guy on craigslist to build a website for me. Let's not debate the wisdom of that. It was not wise. In about August or September I told him I was not in a rush anymore, take your time. I paid him a total of 4000. In November I contacted him and told him to finish. He said no problem, he would be done by Jan 1. On Jan 1 he confessed via telephone that he had been irresponsible, but that would change immediatley and I would be his main focus. He told me he would be done by March 1. I gave him until April 1 to make absolutely sure he had enough time. It is now five days before the end of the first of the two months, and he has NOTHING to show me. Bot***** *****ne is our relationship is over. Can I have him prosecuted for interstate internet fraud?

Hi, not sure if this is the correct place for this question

Hi, not sure if this is the correct place for this question but I will try. About a week ago I bought 4 used tires from a used tire dealer and he mounted them and put them on my truck without putting them in the water tank to check for leaks. about 3-4 hours later, after there shop was closed of course, I pulled up to my drive to find that on of the tires was losing air fast and went flat in like 10-15 seconds. The next day I went out to take the tire off so I could take it back to the shop and try and get him to exchange it for another good tire, when I went to my truck I discovered another one of the tires had went flat. So I took off the 1st tire and took it to the shop in hope of getting a replacement but when I got there they said they did not have any more tires in that size and was going to do nothing but after telling then several times that they had to do something, replace it give me a refund so I could get a tire somewhere else or something so they finally put another tire on the rim but it was not the same size as the one I originally purchased. So I returned home and put that tire on and removed the other one and went back and he said that he had not more tire of my size and had no patches there because they were locked up and the owner was not there. and refused to do anything, I had to go back on 2 separate occasions to catch the owner there and he started saying you cannot just keep coming back wanting these fixed. I had told him that I had taken the 2nd tire to a big name tire shop to see if I could just have it fixed and they said it could not even be patched because of where the hole was. But he proceeded to patch it anyway and after applying the patch he sprayed soapy water over the spot and it started bubbling indicating that the patch was leaking so he just rolled it over and stuck a plug in it and put the tire in the back of my truck and basically said that's all he was going to do and to go away. A few days later I noticed yet a 3rd tire going flat. My question is would this be a criminal matter like fraud or something for selling me bad products then trying to fix the problem by replacing it with a tire that was not even the correct size and basically taking my money and refusing to give me a refund for a bad product?

So, one of my friend asked me to impersonate him and go to his appointment where he was asked to be disciplined by the Dean of a college for plagiarism. I was caught and the Dean called the cops. My friend and I was brought to the campus police head quarters for questioning. We told the cops that my friend asked me to impersonate him to go to the appointment, and no benefits were received from any of us. What could this lead to?

I currently have 35,000 in debt to American express. Over the

I currently have 35,000 in debt to American express. Over the past few months, I have been able to pay off balances in full totalling 10,000 to 69,000 in some months. Recently, I had an out of court settlement, leaving me with little to nothing. This Amex debt of 35,000 has been charged in the past 2 months and was charged with every intention of paying it back just like in previous months. American Express has begun to call me as I am now in default. As a sign of good faith, I made a 500 dollar payment (though it was small it was what I could do). My question is, will American Express perceive my recent charges as fraud? (these charges were mostly on clothing and luxury goods, but thats no different than months past as this card was primarily used for that affect) I have no assets and I am being relocated to the United Kingdom. I dont want this to affect my immigration. and can they pursue my debts if I am out of the country? (proper service, collections, etc.)I have been with amex for two years with a total spending and repayment of approx 200,000 minus this amount in default.Also my near future prospects for repayment are grim. (we are talking approx 5 years)
