I sent a letter to an investigator and had questions. I hope

I sent a letter to an investigator and had questions. I hope you and your staff are well. I was wondering if you had time and if I could drop a quick note. I'm asking you for a quick favor. I'm asking for a short response if at all possible. I wrote the following: I am asking you to let me know, if you are able to, whether or not the case is proceeding forward or if the investigation has been concluded. I'm asking as a whole beyond ***. I understand that my lawyer said he connected with you and that you were satisfied, but I'm asking from the standpoint of the investigation as a whole because there were other things that I experienced that were open-ended, outside of ***, that feel that they are culminating into something else. Whatever else, I'm not sure. My computer having been taken from the *** airport, my boxes having been gone through in *** and in ***, and investigators threatening me back in *** and then my home being staged, with items being placed into drawers, unboxed, scattered around the house, and more, concern me. All of these are aspects which go beyond, yet perhaps, are connected to ***. That's the part I don't understand. I need help to figure out what I need to do if anything. They all transpired between June and July, and some aspects, occurred after Captain Lindsay, you, and my then-psychiatrist, spoke. Here's what is confusing. ***Apparently, your team, ***, and the *** team are satisfied. My lawyer says the case is closed. But, he cannot name any of the people in the paragraph above that I just told you about. The question I have for you, attorney, is how do I make sense of who is investigating me, if things are happening and I don't know everyone who is? My lawyer wrote the following but it ignores investigators that he does not know about. Is there any way that you could truly know who has been investigating you? What am I to make of the letter below? Thank you for choosing us to represent pre-charge on the insurance fraud investigation. We have contact local authorities in *** and in *** and are satisfied that neither are bringing charges. We have spoken to the *** o about your case and their agent indicated they do not have an investigation or a case to be filed against you. I have spoken to both of your psychiatrists at length and they have indicated the mental illness that you suffer from may be prohibiting you from moving on past this incident. The doctors also indicated that many of the "facts' as you recall them are figments of your imagination and may have never occurred. We are unable to locate any computer that the government seized as you indicated. Based on our assessment and extensive phone calls with you, your doctors and state and federal law enforcement, we have concluded that there are NO PENDING CHARGES nor any open investigation against you. Therefore, we are closing you file. In the rare event that you are contacted by law enforcement, please do not hesitate to contact us to reopen your file. Thank you. Does the primary state's satisfaction mean that the investigation as a whole has ended or did the investigation merely transfer across state lines? There were some parts that were in other states that had happened (***- detective and the computer, ***- car being slowed down, and ***- home being staged/investigators coming in). That goes beyond ***. I need your help in viewing the investigation in a broader perspective. Without knowing everyone who has investigated me and having property taken as part of the investigation, how do you know: 1. If the investigation is building up around one state and was transferred 2. If the investigation has truly concluded across the board (one state and beyond). I have experienced primarily in June or July, across various states, I'm not sure what to make of it, how to feel, and what to expect. I just have the threats from the investigator in July who told me to get a lawyer. Then, I did. He says that everything "Is wrapped up." I'm back to the original questions. The investigators who came in July and comments that were made, let me to believe that the investigation continued, but then I don't understand why there is a delay from *** to ***. We are 5 months out after those comments and recordings were made. The Roto-Rooter man (one of them recorded me and filmed the entire place.) I need to know what's next. Any help or insight would be helpful. I know your time is valuable and I want to be respectful of it. Thanks!

I committed insurance fraud by falsifying details of an

I committed insurance fraud by falsifying details of an insurance claim through my previous insurance provider. Once my claim got to their SIU, I opted to cancel the claim because I did not want to go to jail. The claim was canceled without further mention and I thought it was all done and over with. Today I received a notice saying my car insurance was being canceled, and the reason is was Misrepresentation of materials or engaged in fraudulent conduct. I made no official statements to my previous carrier to either deny or admit guilt, I simply asked for the claim to be closed. No money was paid out by my insurance provider, and no services were performed outside of an estimate performed by the insurance provider. At this point, do I need to be concerned about being prosecuted for this, and if so, how long before either a warrant is issued or a subpoena is issued?

I filed a claim with a previous insurance company, that

I filed a claim with a previous insurance company, that refused to cover the damages due to the vehicle being in storage. I filed a new claim, for the same damages with my new insurance provider. I honestly did not realize it was a felony to do so at the time, but found this out today. Today I also found out that the claim was sent to a SIU for investigation. I decided to send them a message, formally withdrawing my claim and that I would be handling the repairs at my own expense. At this time, no repairs have been made at their expense. I provided no further information, and do not intend on providing further information. Should I be concerned about being charged criminally at this time?

I've been seeing the same therapist since I was young. It's been 7 years. I recently realized that all this time he has been waiving my co-payments and that this is considered insurance fraud. I had no idea I owed co-payments for a therapist visit or that not paying them is fraud. Because I personally benefit from this fraud and get free therapy, am I in any way liable?
