Customer Question

Good morning, I have a concern. My ex gave me money he told me to keep half and than give him the rest. He gave me a time frame of which to return the money. I explained to him that I wouldn't be to give him the money right away. Now he says he has the FBI and interpol involved and they going to come arrest me can he do that.

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

I live in NY and he lives in Florida

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?

I told him I can give it to him by 6pm this evening and he and the FBI have been texting me and telling me I need to have it by 10am but I'm currently in the hospital and have no way of doing that

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

No that's it Thank you

Okay no problem thank you for taking me into consideration
Family Lawyer: Phillips Esq., Attorney-at-Law replied 26 days ago

I am sorry, but I do not understand your post.

Why is the FBI involved in your case--in a civil matter between you and your ex?

How do you know is the FBI texting you?

Did you get the FBI's employee number?

Kindly explain a little more?

Thank you for your cooperation.

There is NO FBI texting you. Your ex is trying to scare you into paying the money. FBI does not get involved in private disputes between individuals. FBI is a federal police agency and only deals with criminal cases.

You WILL NOT be arrested for owing him money.

Best wishes,

A 5-star positive rating to my response is appreciated so that I can receive credit for responding to your post. There is no additional cost to you for giving a positive rating. However, that is how I get paid for answering questions on this site.

Thank you for your cooperation.
