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'm applying for a concealed weapons permit in Colorado. 15

I'm applying for a concealed weapons permit in Colorado. 15 years ago I was arrested, for 3rd degree assult was on probation did what the courts asked of me, then the case was dropped. I had an attorney get my records sealed. I know they do an FBI and a CBI (Colorado Bureau of Investigation) but that would limit me from getting my license would it???JA: Have charges been filed? Is there a prior criminal record?Customer: I was charged with 3rd degree assault Misdemeanor, it was a DV ordeal. but since it was my first offense, I was put on probation for 2 years, I only did 1 year of probation due to good behavior and everything was dropped. About 3 years after that even I went into the Military as well, and I'm still in. I haven't been arrested since for anything.JA: In what state did this occur?Customer: ColoradoJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I just didn't want to be disappointed if I was denied. But I work for the Department of Defense full time and reservist part time, you'd think I wouldn't have been able to come into the Military.
