I have been on holiday in the USA several times in the last

I have been on holiday in the USA several times in the last 2 years using the visa waver program. I have however approx 3 years ago been arrested on suspicion of common assault, I was never charged, I gave no admission of guilt and no further action was taken. I was innocent. I am now possibly going to be applying for an 0-1 visa, and am worried if I should have previously not used the waver program? However all my research indicated at the time of completing my ESTA that common assault even if you were found guilty is not a crime of Moral Turpitude. Simple Assault in the USA carries a max sentence of one year in prison, in the UK Common Assault is a summary offence which carries an max of 6 months in prison and / or a fine. Therefore I believe common assault is a lesser offence than simple assault when making a comparison. My sponsors immigration lawyer has asked me to complete a form that asks if I have ever been arrested (and not have I been arrested or convicted for an offense or crime involving moral turpitude?), so I will need to disclose my arrest, but I would like to have supporting information when I do, and the reassurance that by travelling on the visa waver program I have not miss-lead US immigration, because the ESTA question asks, “Have you ever been arrested or convicted for an offense or crime involving moral turpitude?” therefore I truely believe that I have answered the visa waver question honesty.

Is my name and I am wondering how to find out if

***** ***** is my name and I am wondering how to find out if a friend in Ghana is really who she says she is. She sent me a copy of an expired passport that she says needs to be renewed but online images are different than hersJA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?Customer: She seems to be asking for me to send money often but will only use Money Gram or Western Union and I asked her to open a bank account that could just receive a wire transfer and she refuses to use a bank. It made me start thinking she may not be who she says she is we've been friends online for a long time and I like her but not sure if I should trust her. She says she wants to come visit me or me come thereJA: OK got it.
