My name xxxxxx. I received a phone call from Florida, phone

Hello my name Michael xxxxxx.  I received a phone call from Florida, phone number 850-xxx-xxxx, around 4pm on Monday,  September 28, 2015. Supposedly I was confirmed for a $1,000 loan from a company called Money Loan Company. The representative's allegedname was Andrew xxxxxx. I,needed the money desperately and talked with him for three hours until he finally convinced me to send a $90 plus service fees money gram to Steven xxxxxxxx from California. He promised I would receive the money on my American Expressserve card within an hour but I never did. I desparately needed the money to buy my daughter's necessities and pay on some bills im behind on. So without thinking I gave all my information. Name, email and home address, birth date, and even social securitynumber. I was wondering if I could file a lawsuit against them and sue for dishonesty, fraud, identity theft, false advertising,  and suffering For not having the rent money and money for my daughter. This should not happen to anyone else.  Any feedback wouldbe greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I applied for a loan on line on May 14. I have some past

I applied for a loan on line on May 14. I have some past credit issues although I am workiing diligently to get back to my previous credit score. I was contacted by phone on Monday, May 16 by Nathan Hathaway an agent with Lincoln State Financial which is located on Park Avenue in New York City. The purpose of the call was to inform me that I had been approved for the $10,000 I had applied for, although due to my credit situation, it was not through a bank. The loan was for a 3 year term at 6% and, due to my credit situation, the insurer was requiring the lender to obtain the first four months payments ($1214) as collateral. This was fine with me as the main reason for this loan was to pay off 7 payday loans that were costing me approximately $2000/month (basically just for interest). Mr. Hathaway e-mailed me the loan agreement detailing these terms. I was informed that the money would be transferred into my account possibly the same day if I got the collateral to the Insurance Company before noon but definitely the next day at the latest. I signed and returned the contract to him on Thursday, May 19, and sent the money (which I had to borrow) by Western Union on Friday morning. The money was sent to a female in Spain. Once I notified him that it had been sent he assured me that I would be receiving the $10000 either Friday afternoon or Monday. On Monday, I was in a meeting all morning. When I came out of the meeting I had a call from Sydney Blackwood from Lincoln. He informed me that the insurance company had examined the transaction and had now decided they wanted an additional 4 months payment. Needless to say I was quite upset but knew that if I could borrow the additional money I would be able to pay it back on Tuesday, which is what I did. On Tuesday I got a call saying that the loan company had pulled out and that they were going to be suing them on my behalf. He also said they were not able to find another company to lend me the $10000 but were able to find someone who would lend me $20000. Of course, the insurance company now wanted an additional 8 months of payments. Please keep in mind that I had contacted all of the payday loan companies and arranged for full payoff on Wednesday, May 25 which is when their next payment would be deducted. Now it is Tuesday and they want another $2400+ for the $20,000. After going back and forth (they did say I could get my money back) they agreed to put up $1000 of the $2400 so I borrowed the rest and sent it yesterday. Once they received it I was assured the money would be there today. I started calling Mr. Blackwood this morning. Of course he didn't answer so I left a message (which he has never responded to previously). I called Customer Service and asked them to have him call me. He did call around 11 am and left a message that the transfer had been delayed but it would be done today and that he would call me as soon as the transfer went through. I have called him three more times with no response. I also called Mr. Hathaway who seemed genuinely concerned and assured me that he would find out what was going on immediately and have Mr. Blackwood get back to me. That has not happened. Where can I go from here? Needless to say I'm desperate. Thank you for any help or advice you can give me. Roseanne [email protected], XXX-XXX-XXXX.

I got a piece of junk email that said "online teen

I got a piece of junk email that said "online teen masturbation" I opened the email without thinking and there was a link which I DID NOT click on. I deleted the email. It basically said click here. I figure that just opening an email and viewing that text is not any sort of crime but I was simply wanting to confirm this. I only viewed the text and no images. I guess I should just delete an email like that but it was a simple lapse in judgement and I saw NOTHING. ALSO, I WOULD NOT WANT TO SEE ANYTHING!

There are 2 questions below. If 2 questions are too many

There are 2 questions below. If 2 questions are too many please just answer the 1st question.1. What is or what constitutes "want of probable cause for the institution of the former proceedings" under number 5 of the 6 elements necessary to sustain an action for malicious prosecution stated in Wisconsin case "Elmer v. Chicago & N.W.R. Co. (1950), 257 Wis. 228,43 N. W. (2nd) 244?2. Also if I brought a "reasonable"suit (legal action) to recover costs incurred as a result of malicious prosecution against me is there a possibility that that I could be counter sued for bringing the malicious prosecution suit if I do not prevail in my suit? In a previous hearing the judge dismissed harassment charges against me and scolded the other attorney for bringing the harassment charges when the other party should have filed a suit for quiet title if they had a claim to our land.

What does "Have you ever been convicted of a felony or

What does "Have you ever been convicted of a felony or subjected to deferred adjudication on a felony charge?" mean? I was arrested on a possession of identifying information charge in 2004. I accepted deferred adjudication and completed without any incident. The word "subjected" makes me think that the question could mean something more than did I just accept deferred. I was never convicted, revoked, nothing. Completed probation perfectly - 14 years ago. I am afraid this will hinder a potential job I am trying to get. I recieved the offer letter, now they are asking this. What should I answer?
