I want to know how to press charges on my ex-IT Admin. I own a small business and he has locked me out of my outlook account, one of my domain accounts, and multiple email addresses that he set up for my company using my company name.

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. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Criminal Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.

I believe that I have been experiencing a targeted hacked at

I believe that I have been experiencing a targeted hacked at home so I have used the public library to try to get away from that to report the IP abuse, change passwords, etc. I am unsure if my Hotmail and pen drive have been infected as of yet-- but if in the case that they are, is it possible that the suspected hackers could make the claim that I am the "real" hacker since I'm the one using a potentially infected device (even if it's their program) and that I'm doing it to frame them?
