I signed up to facebook using a nickname I have used since

I signed up to facebook using a nickname I have used since 1956 (Was born in 1941). I looking into changing my "born name" Mary L** to my nickname T*** while living in NYC, and found $7,000 to much to spend. Facebook looked for no verification of the name. I signed up in a game available on facebook (Royal Story) using a credit card in my legal name ***** *****. Somehow -- and I have no proof how -- I was hacked. I removed the card, and had it deactivated from credit card company.JA: What state is this in? And when did the issue begin?Customer: I currently live in Texas, state in which I was born. Point is Facebook let me sign up with no verification that Terri L**** was a legal name. After I was hacked, they have blocked me from using the facebook credits I have on record until I provide proof that Terri Leinneweber is a legal name. Which it is not. It is a nick name. I have driver's license in Mary L L***, and lots of documentation for banks and stuff. I also have genealogy records in M****.Com showing that I have used Terri as a nickname.JA: Have you consulted a lawyer yet?Customer: No. I will probably simply let facebook disable my accounts, and stop using it.JA: Is there anything else important you think the Criminal Lawyer should know?Customer: Not a criminal lawyer. I didn't do anything illegal. I was actually wondering about Facebook's legality to do this.JA: OK. Got it.

A friend of mine visited an asian massage parlor which just

A friend of mine visited an asian massage parlor which just got busted recently on the news for as a sex prostitution ring. The owners of the massage parlor have already been arrested and according to police, they state the investigation is ongoing. The police states many of the customers of the massage parlor have been already identified and more will be identified as the investigation continues. My question is should my friend be worried? According to my friend he visited the illegimitate massage parlor multiple times and paid using his credit card. Just because he visited a place in the past that got busted, could he be charged and arrested as well? just for being a previous customer? As far as I'm aware it's not illegal to visit a place where illegal activity is going on if their is no proof that he ever gave money for sex acts. Could the owner of the massage parlor testify against him?

A few months ago I reported my ex-wife to the disability

A few months ago I reported my ex-wife to the disability fraud office for misusing our son's disability benefits. She is the representative payee for him, and I know that she is allowed to put the money into her personal account (which she does), however she does not spend the money for our son. Disability has contacted her (she has sent me text messages threatening me because I turned her in), to begin looking into the report against her. We just went through trial in family court regarding medical bills for our son. During the trial I was given copies of her bank statements, credit card statements, and other documentation. These documents clearly show the deposits of the SSA benefits for Tom, our son and herself, but they also show how she spends 100% of her money. Can I legally send these documents in to the disability fraud office as proof of her misuse of funds? I obtained all of these documents legally, with her knowledge.

If a daughter acquired a second credit card on her mom's MC account without permission which probably involved forging her mom's signature in addition to convincing her mother it was "in her best interest" to add her to her checking account and then spending 3 of her mothers Social Security checks which were predestined for her care giver at the assisted living facility which almost caused her eviction until the facility had to step in and have the checks deposited directly into her moms facility account. her mother lived in fla. at the time and the mothers son had a POA registered with the County and State. She has sinced passed away at 90yrs. old. Are these still prosecutable offense's under Fl. State Statute 825.103 even though she has passed? If so can you recommend an attorney in Port St. Lucie County Fl. Thank you, Lee (the son)
