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 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?

This may be a question about splitting hairs, but I would

This may be a question about splitting hairs, but I would appreciate a thorough response. Harassment is a crime in the state of Maryland. So is stalking. A peace order (restraining order in other states) can be issued to a person accused of stalking or harassing someone. When a peace order is issued, the respondent is ordered to refrain from activities such as harassment and stalking. As it is a civil procedure, having a peace order issued is not the same as a criminal conviction, such as being convicted of harassment or stalking. In the interest of defining a truthful description of a person who was under a peace order, is it accurate to define that person as an "adjudicated stalker and/or harasser" or is that a false statement since the respondent was never convicted or "adjudicated" for the crimes of stalking or harassment. Thanks.

I received a call this morning from my car insurance

I received a call this morning from my car insurance provided that I was involved in an accident yesterday, that I did not recall. I called my ex husband thinking it was him, he thought it was me. After discussing with the insurance company in more detail I realized that yes I was in a situation where I could have hit a vehicle however I didn't believe that I did because I didn't feel any impact. I went ahead and had the insurance company view my vehicle today for damage and in looking myself I did see some very small damage, the claims adjuster said about $106. At this point I'm just concerned about a hit and run charge, I certainly didn't mean to hit anyone and didn't think that I did or I would have stopped and left a note. I'm just not sure if I need to call the police department to let them know I'm cooperating or what my next steps should be really be. So I'm just trying to find some information.JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when did this happen?Customer: This happened in Omaha NEJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: Not yet I wasn't sure if it was necessary at this point, as I haven't seen the police report and I haven't been contacted directly by the police.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I don't think so.
