Thank you for the note. If you would like to settle the case

Richard,Thank you for the note.If you would like to settle the case without further legal proceedings (per your letter), please reimburse the entire dollar amount I incurred in expenses as a result of Gregory's conscious advertent actions to engage in a relationship that was based on misrepresentation.Gregory gained my sexual consent and compliance to engage in a relationship with him through deception and fraudulent statements.In addition to suffering material losses which would not have been incurred if Gregory had not misrepresented himself to me in the beginning of our interactions with him, I suffered physical and psychological pain that was caused by numerous acts of battery and harassment towards me and my pet at that time.Please advise if you would like to settle by compensating me for the expenses incurred during the relationship with Gregory.As discussed, I will not contact Greg.Please advise your client that he should refrain from any attempts of getting in touch with me.Kind regards,TatyanaSent from my iPhoneOn Sep 23, 2016, at 2:03 PM, Richard ********* wrote:Ms. ************,Having raised the specter of litigation, however meritless, I am asking that you please sign the attached Release and return it to me prior to any funds being wired.Thank you.Richard *************From: Tatyana ************Sent: Friday, September 23, 2016 12:33 PMTo: Richard ************Subject: Re: ExpensesRichard,Thank you for the note. You were 16 minutes late for our phone meeting earlier today and failed to notify me you were not going to be on time for the call ahead of time. I have serious doubts regarding your professional judgement based on my interaction with you so far.Please transfer the transportation expenses in the amount of $450.00 to the below checking account:Routing number: *********Account number: ***********Tatyana ***********Citi bank.Regards,TatyanaSent from my iPhoneOn Sep 23, 2016, at 11:01 AM, Richard *********** wrote:Dear Ms. ************,Thank you for calling me yesterday. And thank you for respecting Greg's request that you not contact him directly anymore.From our conversation yesterday and today, it is my understanding that you are seeking the expenses below because Greg was "deceptive" in his relationship with you. Specifically, you believe that he deceived you because he was romantically involved with or interested in another woman while seeing you, and that Greg essentially "misrepresented" himself in his relationship with you.Although I understand these circumstances were upsetting to you, this does not form the basis of a legal obligation to pay for what you term expenses. Gifts are gifts. Dining and entertainment are normal expenses in any relationship and you certainly benefited from Greg's companionship on those occasions. And while a lack of emotional commitment or fidelity may have disappointed your expectations for this particular relationship, it does not entitle you to compensation. Frankly, your threats to bring civil or criminal charges if Greg does not pay these "expenses" border on extortion and harassment, and I doubt your claim that a lawyer advised you to do so.That said, Greg certainly understands that you traveled to New Hampshire specifically to visit him. Although not legally obligated to reimburse you for those costs, he is willing to cover the $450 in travel expenses that you list below.If you would like us to forward that amount to you, please let me know, and I will make sure the check goes out in the next few days. Alternatively, if any further communication is necessary, I suggest your counsel contact me directly. Again, please do not contact Greg via text, email, phone or any other means.Respectfully,Richard ************Richard *************************-----Original Message-----From: Tatyana ***************Sent: Thursday, September 22, 2016 10:12 AMTo: Richard *************Subject: ExpensesAs discussed, please find the list of expenses below:Gifts:477 - Broadway tickets (gift)216 - cashmere sweater (gift)180 - blanket (gift)50 - Gus (gift)Wine - 100 (gift)70 - cup (gift)Total gifts: $1093Dining/Entertainment120 per week, 3 weeks per month, 9 monthsTotal dining/entertainment: $3240Transportation:Bus - 160 (round trip)Bus - 40 (one way)Acela - 250 (one way)Total transportation: $450Total Spend: $4,783Please let me know for any questions.Thank you,Tatyana

My daughter is 21 years old. She is prescribed Aderol for ADHD. One of her coworkers is also on Aderol but her prescription had run out and unfortunately, my daughter gave her two of her pills. The coworker was arrested and when asked by police where she got the pills she turned in my daughter. My daughter was then arrested.

I'm being charged with a felony forged documents and

I'm being charged with a felony forged documents and burglary of a bank for trying to cash or deposit a check into my bank account that I didn't know was bad. I have a housecleaning business that I advertise on Craigslist and was hired to clean a house and possibly others in a city about an hour away from where I reside, this is not unusual in this business. The person was going to put the money in my account but when I met them they gave me a check for over the amount and said there would be more work to come as to why. I went to a wellsfargo bank, who I bank with and asked to cash or deposit but didn't know if cashing was even an option since my account was upgrading from opportunity banking (can't cash have to wait for next day deposit) to a regular account (where you can same day cash checks). I was arrested IN THE BANK and released on OR the next day. I spoke with my local branch and they said this was very unusual and if the manager of that bank had me arrested why was my account even still open? They said I had given out too much personal info with my online banking info I provided the person who gave me the check and they could access my funds and clean my a count out so closed that account under lost or stolen and opened up a new one as well as I was still upgraded in my banking account as mentioned before. My public defender is not helping at all and I'm scheduled for a trial in a few weeks! I'm a single mother of three children with NO family to help so my kids would end up in foster care if something happened to me. To top it off were staying in a domestic violence shelter on top of everything else. And I forgot to mention but I tried contacting the person that "hired me" but it was a google number or something like that that was no longer working.
