Customer Question

I sold a car for $6,000 that I guess the state thought was sold under value because they sent a letter to the buyer in order to confirm the price. I had to fill out my part of the form which included confirming the price. There was also another space to fill something in and she said something like, "I guess you put the VIN# *****" so I did. later I thought that I should have read what it actually said because I filled in the VIN# ***** I didn't actually read what they were asking for. So while I did put the correct price I filled in the Vin# ***** an area that I do not know what they actually wanted. This concerns me because when I signed I saw that it said that I was signing under penalty of perjury. If I filled in the Vin instead of what was required could I actually be charged with perjury or would they just consider it a mistake and only be concerned with the actual price of the car, which I filled in correctly? I don't think a mistake is perjury.

Perjury requires intent. You do not commit perjury by mistake. You can file a corrected document if it gets kicked back, but it is very unlikely anyone will accuse of perjury because you filled in a form incorrectly.

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.

I was arrested in Henrico,Va for DUI. Henrico Co., arrested
Henrico Co. Virginia , arrested 06/24/2017 for DUI , Went iIwas brought into the police station I did not take the breathalizer and repeatedly requested a blood test. The officer angrily stated that would require him to obtain a search warrant before he could take me to the hospital for the blood draw. shortly i was taken to the hospital. I was never presented nor did i ever see a warrant of any kind. After the blood draw I asked the officer how lond was I going to be detained ? He then stated "ON THE POLICE VIDEO" that he had to take me back to the station to obtain a warrant ?? I feel this was an illegal blood draw without a warrant. I have been to court and was sentenced, however, i feel i have a pending law suit because i was never presented nor saw any warrant. I spent eight days and eight nights in a jail pod built to hold 32 inmates, the population fluctuated form 96 to 102 inmates. I was forced to spend all my time on the wet concrete floor directly next to the overflowing toilet with garbage etc surrounding me. My main issue right now is the fact "RECORDED ON THE POLICE TAPE "which I have" That my blood was drawned without a warrant ?? Thanks for your time and kind consideration ! … read more
