Hi, I have received...

Hi, I have received a card to contact my local police station. I believe it is in relation to my ex claiming attempted blackmail. What should I do?

Lawyer's Assistant: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when did this happen?

WA, found the card in my front door this morning.

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

Not sure, haven't rung yet

I recommend that if there are other issues involved, I recommend that you discuss in detail with a lawyer first just to make sure when you contact the police nothing is said out of context.

would you like to discuss this matter by telephone ?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
