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?

1 1/2 year ago, I contacted the sheriff to report my

1 1/2 year ago, I contacted the sheriff to report my grandmother was murdered. They listened and said they'd call me back "in a few days" after they spoke to the person I alleged to be the head perpetrator (there are multiple). They've never called me back. I've called and written letters and received no reply. I'm assuming they found there were validity to my allegations and are investigating; if that's the case, that's fine. I don't want to disrupt their investigation. But how long should I wait and how can I find out the disposition?
