I quit my job at a sweepstakes in north carolina now he is telling people i stole 6000 and he is gonna press charges on me i never filled any paper work for this job and i havent stole anything my name is XXXXX XXXXX in there system can i go to jail for this

JD 1992 :

Hello, and thank you for contacting Just Answer. I am an expert here and I look forward to assisting you today.

JD 1992 :

He is going to have to prove you stole the money before worrying about going to jail.

Customer:

he claims that the reciepts can prove it but my name is XXXXX XXXXX the reciepts its somebody else name on them but it is my log in number

JD 1992 :

I think he is going to have a hard time proving it.

JD 1992 :

If you get contacted by the police you will want to hire a lawyer and definitely do not talk to them.

Customer:

he called threating me to write a letter saying how i am gonna pay him back but i am not gonna admit to nothing i didnt do we barely have 6 customers in a 12 hour day so how in the world can he have 6000 dollars stole from him

JD 1992 :

He may just be trying to extort money from you. Don't talk to him or interact with him. Go and talk to a lawyer and hire him to send a letter threatening a slander suit.

Customer:

can the police come and just arrest me on his accusations is what i need to know

JD 1992 :

Yes, they can get a warrant for you just on his accusations. They usually investigate first, but they don't always.

Customer:

wow so i need to find me a lawyer fast huh

JD 1992 :

You should.

Customer:

ok thanks i will do that now i hope i can get out of this and i am gonna sue him for slander

JD 1992 :

Best wishes to you. Please don't forget to leave a Positive Rating (of course I'd suggest Excellent) so I get credit for my work.

Customer:

i already did all i have to do is submit it and do you know any low cost lawyers in north carolina

JD 1992 :

I don't know anyone in NC but you can find one by going to www.lawyers.com and looking for lawyers that do criminal law.

Customer:

ok thanks
