My son received a notification from his credit union that he

My son received a notification from his credit union that he was being investigated for fraud. He had given someone his ATM card to make a deposit into his account. That person in turn gave it to someone else who is unknown to my son. That person deposited a bogus check for $4000 into my son's account and then when on a shopping spree, spending $4000. He was notified by the the credit unions fraud department, went down to the next day to fill out fraud papers and filed a police report. Today he received a certified letter from the credit union saying that he is liable for all that money. Aren't there laws to protect him against the fraudulent charges?

Thank you time. I am not sure I chose the correct specialty

Hello. Thank you for your time. I am not sure I chose the correct specialty - but perhaps, if not, you can hand me off to the proper attorney.The short version: someone wrote a bounced check to my employer - which I was responsible for acquiring and now the accounting dept wants me to correct this issue. I either need a new check or proof (as the bouncer states) it was paid after all. The check was returned to my accounting dept with NSF stamped on itThe bouncer made the mistake of writing to me on her company "letterhead" from work the other day - when I called and asked her again to make good.The question: am I able to call her work, her supervisor or whomever at human resources and explain the situation?? The check was for $1800 and if we cannot get another check or the proof it was paid - my employer wants the money from ME!!Thank you again for your time

I gave a car to a needy couple and signed over the title but

I gave a car to a needy couple and signed over the title but they never got it notarized or officially took title to the vehicle. They then "got rid of it". Sat it on a roadside, put a sign on it that it could be taken for free and it was. Now I don't know where the car is or who has it. How can I get myself free of any liability for the car?

Do jails have to provide "a reasonable accommodation

do jails have to provide "a reasonable accommodation for the disabled" according to the ADA?Is PTSD, anxiety, panic in a jail setting reason to be arrested? Shouldn't police and prison/jail guards need to explain why they are asking a person to do something, esp. it the person asks them. Some of us just want to understand why we are being infringed upon? Are police allowed to leave bruises on persons at an arrest and to always charge "disturbing the peace" and "resisting arrest". It seems to me that any person that I know who has been arrested has always also had these two charges added on to whatever the "real" charge is.Does the person being arrested need to understand why they are being arrested like if a person has "Asperger's syndrome or mild ASD or a right hemispheric disorder" need to understand the reason for arrest? Do rights (Miranda) always need to be given to a person arrested?
