Lottery scam on the elderly. I am helping out a little old
Lottery scam on the elderly. I am helping out a little old lady who has lost over $500K of her hard earned retirement over the last 3 years to a lottery scam artist, allegedly operating out of Costa Rico. An intervention was performed before she lost all her money.We have bank and payment records, we have the land line phone number, physical location (in Indiana) and fake names used by the scam artist in question. The scam artist is now calling the lady daily after failing to return 3 messages left at his number by her daughter before we stepped in. He is now promising to return all her money and to provide the lottery winnings.What is our best course of action. Private Investigator? Attorney? FBI? Secret Service?

i was looking for a job and found one online. I was employed
i was looking for a job and found one online. I was employed by a certain person as his mother's caregiver but before i could get to take care of his mother, he made money transfers in my account for my payment and for a western union transfers. The next thing I knew the bank called the cops on me. I never knew the money transfer in my account was fraudulent because it was a wachovia account. I am just scared what is going to happen now. As for evidence, I have all the email communications between me and that certain person. Am I going to be arrested?
I got a divorce about two years ago. The new girlfriend
Hi, I got a divorce about two years ago. The new girlfriend before we were even divorced said that I was calling my ex has been too much and she had a police officer call me. It was absolutely ridiculous we had to talk back-and-forth in order to get everything settled. They wrote it off and said whatever because obviously there was no harm or anything like that. After that on New Year's eve I called and wished him a happy new year and I said I hope you have the best year ever. That was it one time since our divorce which had been four months prior. I then got another call stating that I was harassing him and she lied and said I had left text messages voicemails and phone calls all throughout the day and night which was not true and again nothing came of it because it wasn't true. A year later which was about two weeks ago I heard he was sick so I called him and that was it. I did not text him I did not leave a voicemail and I called him one other time again I heard he was sick. So I get a letter in the mail today from an attorney stating that if I don't stop the phone calls all Day and all night and the text messages and voicemails that they are going to file a restraining order on me and that I will have to pay for the attorney fees. I have never text him I have not even spoken or called him in almost a year as well as I have not left a voicemail they were only a couple of phone calls. And they were innocent. I have never been to their home I have never called her I have never been angry toward him except in the beginning of course everything has been cordial and nothing crazy no threats no screaming and like I said I haven't even spoken to him in one year. The letter is a lie and I would be more than happy to hand my phone records over because it's a complete lie. But, I'm tired of them or her stating that I make calls day and night and text Messages and voicemails when it's not true. I am tired of these threats. I know they can't get a restraining order against me because I haven't done anything wrong and I never try to see him or anything I really don't want anything to do with them again I just called I heard he was sick that was it. Can you please tell me if there is anything I can do or say in return to this letter as well as state that I am tired of being accused of things that aren't true. Also, can they really get a restraining order against me when I haven't done anything wrong?
I went out on a camping trip to mount rainier,wa with some
I went out on a camping trip to mount rainier,wa with some friends and when me and my girlfriend got to the campsite my friends were allready there, my friends and my girlfriend were shooting guns for a bit and later had the firearms located at the camp site by the tents. My girlfriend had just left to go to the store in town about 15 miles away meanwhile a forest service officer came to our site and asked what we were doing and who's guns they were so my friend claimed his guns and I had told the officer the last gun there was my girlfriends but she had just went to the store, he proceeded to run everyone's names and later placed me and a friend in handcuffs and the officer advised us we both had a charge from 2008 that was still on our record that would prevent us from having legal possession of a firearm. He uncuffed me and my friend and told us we will get something in the mail then he left, it's been over a year and still have not heard anything I've called several places and everytime they keep telling me they don't show anything on that in the system, my question is what should I do to cover myself to be sure? Also what could be the possible outcome of this if it does go to court?
