i live in louisiana, a friend had me call and cancel her ex

This answer was rated:

i live in louisiana, a friend had me call and cancel her ex husbands hotel reservations. I simply called and said i wanted to cancel his reservations (I didnt say who I was) and they did it. In the end they upgraded his reservation to a better room. Not sure if its true but he says its a federal crime...fraud over state lines. Is this true? I didnt know I was committing a crime if I did.......maybe something that wasnt nice but certainly not a crime. Ive never even had a traffic ticket must less something else. Please give me some advice.
Yes, it is considered identity theft and electronic communications fraud. Now, will it be charged in prosecuted, the chances are slim to none, with none winning, that this would ever be charged. However, if I were you I would absolutely not say anything about you doing this to anyone.

I didnt say I was him, I just simply said I wanted to cancel his reservations......the hotel representative didnt ask who I was but simply did what I asked. He told his exwife that the DA was working on a case against both of us. What should I do? Should I meet with the DA or get an attorney? How do I find out what he claims is going on at the DAs office is true or not?
