I have a friend who is a sales manager at a auto dealership

I have a friend who is a sales manager at a auto dealership and was approached by an individual who wanted to purchase a vehicle and wanted to put a large sum of money down but did not want the money to "show up". After foolishly taking the money and spending some of it (which was a money he says was given to him for making the deal) he found out that this individual did not obtain the money legally and that some of the money is counterfeit. He did not go through with the helping the person get the vehicle and I advised him that he should now go to the authorities and tell them everything and whatever happens, happens. What should he do?

I am curious about the Dr. Shopping law in North Dakota. I

I am curious about the Dr. Shopping law in North Dakota. I did not do it, but a pharmacist says I have red flags on my prescription list. Back in Nov 2016 I had a cyst with MRSA infection in my armpit and a relapse of it in Jan 2017 again. I was prescribed Hydrocodone for it and then in Jan Hydrocodone again. I had a reaction to it at the ER and the ER doctor game me Oxy to take instead. I did not go to a PCM, but went to the walk-in clinic daily to get my packing in my arm removed and replaced. It was easier for my schedule because they are open until 10 and I work all day. I am on Cymbalta daily for anxiety. I also saw a doctor previously and he put me on Lorazapam, but I started to go see another doctor because the other one was wacky. I did refill the prescription because I had refills left and was out of Xanax. I never took them together, but now I am concerned that they think I was Dr. shopping because I was seen at a walk-in clinic daily and saw the provider that was working that day. If I was still in pain because of the hole in my armpit and was out of meds I asked for more. Is there anything wrong with that?

I have come to realize that the gh end bicycle purchased

I have come to realize that the high end bicycle purchased locally through Craiglist is actually a counterfeit. I now have written confirmation from the Pinarello (authentic Manufacter) US distributor. The seller claims he did not know that is was counterfeit. I do have reason to believe otherwise, however, I would like to know if I have a case against the seller to recoup 100% of my $3,500 purchase price should I not be able to prove his knowledge of such or not. Also, in such case, would I be required to return the item.The seller resides in Olathe Kansas, Johnson county, where I first viewed the bicycle at his residence. I reside in W**** Missouri, S******* The actual transaction took place in Indenpendance, Missouri, Jackson County. Where would I file my case?It seems I have a couple cases, Civil or small claims and then criminal. Would I own the criminal offense or would the County/state or federal gov't or authentic manufacturer?

I buy and sell motorcycles as a hobby on Craig's List. I

I buy and sell motorcycles as a hobby on Craig's List. I carry insurance on the bikes I buy and most are street legal with license and registration. If someone gave me counterfeit money to buy my bike, would my insurance cover this as a theft? And, If someone test drives the motorcycle and wrecks it, would my insurance cover this? I only take cash and screen people pretty well, any other known scams to be aware of that you know?

Mr Dwayne I'm a craigslist and ebay seller. About

hello Mr DwayneI'm a craigslist and ebay seller. About 1 month ago I purchase a case of used beats headsets from a Hong Kong seller but the package was seized by the custom. Yesterday I received a letter from a law firm in CA says that they want to know the source of the headsets, the sale record of the headsets and the inventory record of the beats headsets. What should I do at this point.
