7 counts of fraud on cashing stolen check, victim of fraud

7 counts of fraud on cashing stolen check, victim of fraud scam on criaglist, two Attorneys one said shes looking at time the other said its BS and he can fight it. I feel like we are getting different advice every time we seek information. I mean how can a Judge put someone away who is a victim herself. She had no idea the check was stolen but the guy who gave her the check is no where to be found. Do cases like this happen offten ? Do people go away for being scammed themselves ? They charged her with bank fraud, forgery, grand theft, identify fraud etc her biggest mistake was maybe being dumb for trusting this guy and not asking the right questions. I mean the check was cashed at her own bank if she knew it was stolen her own personl bank would not be her choice to fund it. I am at a loss here

But what can that government do to stop this incident? Why

But what can that government do to stop this incident? Why will a company see my resume at Career builder and send me a message that they are interested in me working for them and send me application to be completed and fax back to them. And then I actually work for 2 and half month the send me checks, very tricky for u to know it is a scam. They claim part of the money is for your pay, others for your reimbursement of expenses and remaining to be sent to a location and this person is suppose to be another secret shopper or client of the company. Do u see the trick in this, what can the government do to stop these activities? Can I pay the money back by installment? Because there's no way I will be able to pay the bank money back in lump sum. Will I be able to set up payment arrangement?

I am talking to attorneys to help get my drivers licence

I am talking to attorneys to help get my drivers licence back after my second offense OVI. I talked to one on the phone and he asked for my case number. I sent him the information via email, and asked to come to see him to discuss my case. He would not set up an appointment. Now I get an email from him saying my best bet is to file a motion to only remove the interlock. I don't think it's worth it for me to pay him for that. I know I need an attorney because the judge is mad at me because my original case attorney tried to get away with proceeding as a first offense so I got a harsh sentence. Now that my probation is over, I'm looking for help to try to get my licence back. (3 years suspension w yellow plate and interlock) I don't want to pay and wast a motion to just remove the interlock when no driving privileges would be gained. Will I have to pay this attorney if I didn't meet with him? I would prefer to go with someone else to try for my licence restoration.

This skit is a dream I just had: My friends are staying over

This skit is a dream I just had: My friends are staying over for the night and a group of two persons break into my home. They are armed with edge weapons (one of them has a licensed conceal and carry gun in his long coat pocket. A fight breaks out and nobody dies because the attackers abruptly stopped to dance. The attacker without the gun puts his scissors on the nightstand in the foyer area (where the incident is taking place). I seize the opportunity to pickup the scissors and stab him in the neck. What are the crimes and sentences of the people in the scenario. Use your best judgement in all circumstances.
