Recent Misrepresentation questions

I was recently served a subpoena, however, the way it was

Hi. I was recently served a subpoena, however, the way it was served was illegal. I live with my fiancé and his parents in a gated community. I'm not even listed as living here. A processor came to the guard gate and said she had a package to deliver to someone named G***. Then she said it was for B****. She gave no identification and did not say who she was, nor did the guard ask. The guard called the house and spoke to my fiancés dad and just said there's a package for B****, my fiance, so his dad let her in. She came to the house and my fiancé was outside and he heard her say "there they are" into a microphone. His dad came out and she asked "is T**** C****** here" he said "yes" she's right here." Then the lady gave me the papers and left. This is all over a credit card company suing me. Can I file a motion to dismiss since the subpoena was delivered illegally?

I committed insurance fraud by falsifying details of an

I committed insurance fraud by falsifying details of an insurance claim through my previous insurance provider. Once my claim got to their SIU, I opted to cancel the claim because I did not want to go to jail. The claim was canceled without further mention and I thought it was all done and over with. Today I received a notice saying my car insurance was being canceled, and the reason is was Misrepresentation of materials or engaged in fraudulent conduct. I made no official statements to my previous carrier to either deny or admit guilt, I simply asked for the claim to be closed. No money was paid out by my insurance provider, and no services were performed outside of an estimate performed by the insurance provider. At this point, do I need to be concerned about being prosecuted for this, and if so, how long before either a warrant is issued or a subpoena is issued?

I'm in a dilemma that's causing me extreme panic. I unintentionally provided false information on FAFSA regarding my marital status. I assumed that the marital status on tax return by law is required to reflect the FAFSA. At the time of the FAFSA application, I filed single because I wasn't able to file married on 1040 because my wife didn't have a social security number at the time. So corrected my marital status after amending 1040, but my wife did not work so no change in income and no advantage in aid eligibility. Could I still get into trouble?

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.

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.

If a person says that they are a sister to a person that is hospitalized,and unconscious but there is no family relationship is that considered fraudulent? Also this person gave orders that no doctors and nurses could give information to the only surviving relative, a daughter. The only legal documentation this person had with her name on it was a DNR witnessed and signed.
