I am sorry to hear this but I don't understand the facts.

Is this about what this woman did to you? I thought it was but then you mentioned some other disturbing facts.

What are the police doing about this and do they know who she is and how much money she took from you?

Did you get a chance to read my questions to you? I cannot answer you in a meaningful way until I gather the appropriate information. There is no charge for us going up and back of course.

Thanks!
