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 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?

Good Morning! This is in regards ***** ***** neighborhood

Good Morning!This is in regards ***** ***** neighborhood informants. For some time now, I felt that my computer has been hacked. So, I had a cyber investigator check it out. Last week, what appeared to me, in my opinion, a neighbor was walking out to a vehicle with two other individuals with what looked like his hands in handcuffs. They got into the vehicle and drove off. About, a week prior to that, another so-called informant neighbor, in my opinion, had abnormal amount of vehicle activity at their home. My question to you is, if these neighbors were issued warrants for a cyber crime, can a law firm or a government agency intervene and deny or conceal any information regarding those warrants or are those permanent warrants somewhere on file? Can someone hire an attorney to retrieve those warrants?Thanks.

I had an extramarital affair with a man over email and he was

I had an extramarital affair with a man over email and he was privately investigated and the investigator contacted my husband and is threatening to send the emails and photos to him and offering the information if he wants to pay for it. I am trying to not only save my marriage but also make certain that these emails, including photos, are kept private and I don't believe it is legal for someone to hack into email. I want to stop this investigator in his tracks from further investigating into my private accounts and life.JA: The Criminal Lawyer will need to help you with this. Have you consulted a lawyer yet?Customer: No I have not. I also do not know the name or contact information for the investigator. My husband will not share that information with me.JA: OK. The Criminal Lawyer will need to help you with this. Is there anything else important you think the Criminal Lawyer should know?Customer: Just that I don't know how the investigator is contacting my husband or who he is. I do know the man he was investigating lives in Texas. I really just want to stop the threats and the negotiating for money over my personal dealings.JA: I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully refundable deposit now.

This is a question about cyber bullying/cyber stalking. if

this is a question about cyber bullying/cyber stalking. if an individual in california receives just one instance of offensive (not threatening) messages on skype from someone in missouri, would this be sufficient grounds to file some sort of cyber-bullying/cyber-stalking complaint? worth noting that it's not prima facie clear that the suspected person in missouri actually sent the messages--it'd require getting the name of the ISP from Skype, and then name/addr info from the ISP, and even then it is possible that the suspected person could claim that their wifi was hacked.

This is in regards ***** ***** previous question. More developments have happened. Ex-wife is accusing me still of hacking. Supposedly she has went to the district Attorney.
