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?

Is it true that if a person that is not a policeman dresses

Is it true that if a person that is not a policeman dresses like a policeman, but the insigna of the uniform says a city that is 3,000 miles away from the city that the person dressed like a policeman is in, then he/she "can't" be charged with impersonating a police officer because he/she can say that he/she is/was an actor/actress for a play or whatever? Thank you.
