Hi my name is***** my husband is in jail for aggrevated assault and reckless endangerment. If I don't testify against him and don't press charges what will happen to him?
Last Thursday, july 3, I consulted with Zoey D regarding my facts of being a victim of swindling. Since then, I have been playing detective myself since I was drained of every cent that I cannot retain a civil lawyer. I finally found out the true identity of the swindler. I kept looking at photos that was emailed to me and one of them had a chalice logo and a partial name of an institution. To make a long detective story short, I found out the perpetrator is the main pastor in a First Christian Church in Carlsbad, NM. His real name is XXX XXXX XXXX. I then went to Facebook and cross-referenced this person's existence, etc. I understand that criminals are sophisticated in computers and they copy and paste photos and other materials. I painstakingly went through each photos. About half of what was sent to me by the swindler was posted on Facebook and the others are not. Including a naked photo showing the man's face. So to my opinion, it is indeed the pastor of this church who had swindled me. I also see the patterns of his writings about God and his religious beliefs which he shared in the beginning up until he abused asking me to help him by loaning money, throughout a 6-month period, having to make Western Union and depositing amounts to different individual. This perpetrator owes me $300,000.00 and not paid one cent and now i exhausted everything i have including my retirement and my house getting defaults and foreclosure notice. I carefully listened to Zoey D from justanswer and followed her advice. Now that I have discovered a major breakthrough, what do you suggest I do next?
