Thank you for the note. If you would like to settle the case

Richard,Thank you for the note.If you would like to settle the case without further legal proceedings (per your letter), please reimburse the entire dollar amount I incurred in expenses as a result of Gregory's conscious advertent actions to engage in a relationship that was based on misrepresentation.Gregory gained my sexual consent and compliance to engage in a relationship with him through deception and fraudulent statements.In addition to suffering material losses which would not have been incurred if Gregory had not misrepresented himself to me in the beginning of our interactions with him, I suffered physical and psychological pain that was caused by numerous acts of battery and harassment towards me and my pet at that time.Please advise if you would like to settle by compensating me for the expenses incurred during the relationship with Gregory.As discussed, I will not contact Greg.Please advise your client that he should refrain from any attempts of getting in touch with me.Kind regards,TatyanaSent from my iPhoneOn Sep 23, 2016, at 2:03 PM, Richard ********* wrote:Ms. ************,Having raised the specter of litigation, however meritless, I am asking that you please sign the attached Release and return it to me prior to any funds being wired.Thank you.Richard *************From: Tatyana ************Sent: Friday, September 23, 2016 12:33 PMTo: Richard ************Subject: Re: ExpensesRichard,Thank you for the note. You were 16 minutes late for our phone meeting earlier today and failed to notify me you were not going to be on time for the call ahead of time. I have serious doubts regarding your professional judgement based on my interaction with you so far.Please transfer the transportation expenses in the amount of $450.00 to the below checking account:Routing number: *********Account number: ***********Tatyana ***********Citi bank.Regards,TatyanaSent from my iPhoneOn Sep 23, 2016, at 11:01 AM, Richard *********** wrote:Dear Ms. ************,Thank you for calling me yesterday. And thank you for respecting Greg's request that you not contact him directly anymore.From our conversation yesterday and today, it is my understanding that you are seeking the expenses below because Greg was "deceptive" in his relationship with you. Specifically, you believe that he deceived you because he was romantically involved with or interested in another woman while seeing you, and that Greg essentially "misrepresented" himself in his relationship with you.Although I understand these circumstances were upsetting to you, this does not form the basis of a legal obligation to pay for what you term expenses. Gifts are gifts. Dining and entertainment are normal expenses in any relationship and you certainly benefited from Greg's companionship on those occasions. And while a lack of emotional commitment or fidelity may have disappointed your expectations for this particular relationship, it does not entitle you to compensation. Frankly, your threats to bring civil or criminal charges if Greg does not pay these "expenses" border on extortion and harassment, and I doubt your claim that a lawyer advised you to do so.That said, Greg certainly understands that you traveled to New Hampshire specifically to visit him. Although not legally obligated to reimburse you for those costs, he is willing to cover the $450 in travel expenses that you list below.If you would like us to forward that amount to you, please let me know, and I will make sure the check goes out in the next few days. Alternatively, if any further communication is necessary, I suggest your counsel contact me directly. Again, please do not contact Greg via text, email, phone or any other means.Respectfully,Richard ************Richard *************************-----Original Message-----From: Tatyana ***************Sent: Thursday, September 22, 2016 10:12 AMTo: Richard *************Subject: ExpensesAs discussed, please find the list of expenses below:Gifts:477 - Broadway tickets (gift)216 - cashmere sweater (gift)180 - blanket (gift)50 - Gus (gift)Wine - 100 (gift)70 - cup (gift)Total gifts: $1093Dining/Entertainment120 per week, 3 weeks per month, 9 monthsTotal dining/entertainment: $3240Transportation:Bus - 160 (round trip)Bus - 40 (one way)Acela - 250 (one way)Total transportation: $450Total Spend: $4,783Please let me know for any questions.Thank you,Tatyana

Sigh, I had an incident tonight. Was riding my bike, and a lady went right around me, and then turned right, causing me to dump my bike and I yelled at her. I got back on my bike, and kept riding and the next thing I know this lady is chasing me in her car, honking and just about hit me. We got to an intersection, and she hit my back tire then got out of the car and started storming toward me. I hit her hood with my hand and said you almost killed me, and then kept riding. She proceeded to chase me, swerving at me and honking, so I got on a side walk and got away from her. Next thing I know, I have cops chasing me down and detaining me for questioning. They let me go, but what can I expect from this?JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in?

My contractor and his father took a deposit before signing

My contractor and his father took a deposit before signing the contract for finishing basement and doing flooring upstairs .This is in state of New Jersey We trusted him as he had done work in the neighborhood. The father started work in February. Then stopped. The contractor lied to us about filing permit and on being confronted a month later he filed it the next day and lied that the county was at fault. He then got us a rudimentary contract with the work and payment to sign. We did so as we had already paid him around $5000 and were told by neighbors that their contract was also done similarly. The work was started in February 2016 and has not been completed till date. They have done shoddy work . They took all labor money upfront in the name of various subcontractors. We have given them $10500/- so far. They respond to texts and some emails to show that they will continue work but no one turns up.The contractor admits that he has no experience with basements and is dependent on his father for guidance. No materials they say they have ordered have been sent home like flooring, ceiling tiles . They have failed above ceiling inspection both electric and building and have not bothered to fix it. We want to press criminal charges against them as this has disrupted our lives since February 2016 . We feel that we have been scammed.

I am an Enrolled Agent and have my own firm. A few months

I am an Enrolled Agent and have my own firm. A few months ago a business consultant asked me to send out promo for her consulting firm as if it were a service I was delivering. The idea was I would respond to me from the promo and we would make income and split the consulting/service fee. We got no response and it kind of moved onto the back burner. I have for many years dabbled in business consulting. I do have a college degree and training in that area. I would often help people with their businesses so they could afford services in the organization I worked for. The idea of being paid as a business consultant is certainly something I would be interested in and expect to do. My main line has been taxes. I got a potential client referred to me. I talked to this Doctor, and discovered taxes were not a major problem. But he was having business trouble and was paying a consulting firm $2500 per month and was not getting the help he needed. I could have worked out being his business consultant, but it was busy tax time. I called up my friend who has her own small business consulting firm, an S Corp, and discussed the situation with her. She was confident she could help him and offered me 10% as a referral or 30% of the consulting fees if I actually sold the consulting. that would be 30% of $2500 monthly- $750 per month. I called him up, closed him on the monthly service, and collected the first $2500 on a credit card. I forwarded her $1750, less credit card fees, to her. The next month she waived his fee because he had been billed by the original consulting firm. At least she told me she waived his fee. Now she says she has reviewed the cycle and cannot afford to pay me the commission, that it was wrong of her to agree to do so. SHE DOES NOT DENY SHE MADE THE AGREEMENT. She also said she had to hire a partner at $1250 per month to do his Marketing. I pointed out that our agreement, while not in writing, was an ethical and legal contract.; And she agreed to pay me 30% of the fee. She is now saying I got a one-tine $750 dollar payment and she and her marketing director are dong the work. And that that is ALL I get. I realize this could be a problem to prove in court. But that is not the next step. The next step would be to persuade her to not break the law. So, here are my questions. 1) If she agreed to pay me 30% of commissions paid by client who was paying her $2500 per month, and she did not forward it to me, is this a legal violation? Maybe breach of contract? Would this be a felony or misdemeanor? I am not planning legal action against her at this time, nor do I want to report a criminal violation. While our friendship may have gone south due to this cycle, I am not vindictive. To me if she agreed to give me 30% of fees pay, that is a verbal contract, and if she refuses to pay me the percentage, that is a criminal breach of contract. I realize she might deny it or take the 5th, but based upon the data herein, if she does not forward me my commission, would this be a criminal act? Proving it, sueing her, or getting a prosecutor to prosecute are different questions. Is it a criminal act to agree to pay a 30% commission of fees pay and then not pay them?
