My husband and I sent money $700 to a supposed friend of 6

My husband and I sent money $700 to a supposed friend of 6 years for a deposit on a rental home she knew of. She also told us if we sent the first payment of $360 she would sell us a vehicle she owned for $1600. She took our money and did not put a deposit anywhere nor did she put any money toward a vehicle. Is there anything we can do to get our money back? We sent the money via money gram from Virginia. She picked up the money in South Carolina

To law educator. Yesterday l was trying to ask you the

To law educator.Yesterday l was trying to ask you the same question l just asked you few minutes ago but when l send the question you were off line and the question went to somebody else. Now this attorney gave the answer posted below regarding the 90,000 dollars. It sound like l am a criminal also for giving the 90,00 dollar for the defendant. it sounds like l will be sued by the defendant if l asked 180,000 dollars. so what is your comment about this attorney answer?Please read this attorney response below for the same question l asked you and him."When you agree to loan someone $90,000 and get paid $180,000 in return, that would be a 100% interest rate if the loan were for a year. The $90,000 is considered part of the interest - and the means the loan violates California usury laws. This is true even when the other party is the one who suggested that astronomical rate. If you were to sue to collect $180,000, the guy who took your money could actually sue YOU for punitive damages. Meaning that, by agreeing to the loan, you could wind up having to pay this person A LOT of money.If you have evidence that he never intended to repay you and he tricked you into giving him your money, you can file a police report for fraud and theft by deception.... Except, charging someone that much on a loan is considered loan sharking, which is a felony. You could be charged with a crime if you went after this person based on the loan you gave him.I apologize that this was probably not the Answer you were hoping to receive. However, it would be unfair to you and unprofessional of me were I to provide you with anything less than truthful and honest information. I hope you understand. Please rate my answer positively to ensure I am paid for the time I spent answering your question. If you are on a mobile device, you may need to scroll to the right. Thank you."

I wanted to verify if I have an arrest warrant or any charges.

I wanted to verify if I have an arrest warrant or any charges.JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?Customer: I changed the price tag on an ítem in Macys. Ir looks like the cashier motives or maybe they caught me on camera, I really dont know. I just noticed that the cashier was acting nervous and recieved a phone call. She told me the price had been changed and to go directly to the department to pay. I went because I was willing to pay full price for the ítem but while I was waiting in line the cashier recieved a phone call and they started staring at me and I got scared left the clothed and left the store. In scared of any reprecussions this might have. I plan on never doing this again or even entering Macys because Im so embarrased.JA: OK got it.

I was swindled out of $13,000 for the purchase of a car that never went thru. The person I was buying it from promised to refund my money but has yet to actually do that. I have receipts for my cashiers checks and a receipt for the intended car. In addition, I have a string of texts where he's promising the money, even a fake wire transfer form he took a picture of to make me believe he sent it. What are the steps I need to take to sue him in Hillsborough county, Florida? Can you refer a local attorney?
