I applied for a visa card online with a credit union that is

I applied for a visa card online with a credit union that is located in Oregon or Virginia using my real information such as name, ssn, d.o.b., phone number and address. I was asked on the application about my employer and annual income. I wasn't being truthful in this area and I know many people that aren't truthful when asked these same questions, however now I got a call a few days ago from their security fraud department stating that I lied because they contacted the employer that I listed and they confirmed that I do not work there. Accordingly, they are going to be contacting my local police department and that I would have to explain to them why I decided to lie. I would like to know if this is accurate and are they able to just contact my local police department or could this person said that as a scare tatic. It's not like they gave me a card or I used someone else's information I wasn't even approved. I did inform the person from the fraud department that I was unaware that it was a crime but he didn't care much for my answer. So I look into getting an attorney or wait and see if I am contacted by my local police department? I also live in the state of New Jersey.

I gave a prescription to a pharmacy that I had from a while

I gave a prescription to a pharmacy that I had from a while ago written for my son when I called pharmacy to see if it was ready they told me it was a forgery now the local police are calling telling me to come in and talk to them I am hesitant because although I have had no problems in over 10 years I have a record I am going to see dr who the prescription was from apparently he signed something brought to him by police and said he did not write script. I am going to ask him to call police and revise his statement and indicate it could be his prescription the dr told my family that he wants to help me in this situation not hurt me it was the pharmacy that called police Do I have to go see police they have only called and asked me to come in to answer a few questions Will they come to my house. Please advise I don't want to lose the life I have built up these past 10+ yearsJA: OK. Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No I wanted to see if I could have the dr take it down a notch by stating it could be a prescription he gave my son that was lost we did have lost prescriptions that he rewrote and he was getting treated by this dr with this medication for years up until last yearJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: My biggest concern is that I have had prior legal trouble with medication in 2004 and I was convicted of crime I know that will give the police more reason to want to have me come in and talk to them and incriminate myself

I am a resident of South Dakota and have recently been

I am a resident of South Dakota and have recently been discharged from parole from a nonviolent felony. I understand that I have been restored my voting rights but I am a bit confused regarding my hunting and gun ownership rights. I have read that because I am a nonviolent felon that my hunting and gun ownership rights have also been restored. I also read that if I were a violent felon then I would have to wait 15 years before my gun rights would be restored. Is this correct and if so what do I need to do to begin the process of obtaining my gun permit? Thanks!
