Hi
JA: Hello. How can we help?
Customer: My issue is that I was con by a man that pretended to be a veteran
JA: OK. The Military Lawyer will need to help you with this. Because laws vary from state to state, could you tell me what state is this in?
Customer: Louisiana
JA: Have you consulted a lawyer yet?
Customer: No
JA: Please give me a bit more information, so we can help you best.
Customer: Ok so this guy moved to Shreveport Louisiana and said he worked in the army for 7 years. He built a fake resume with fake information about his army status. Fake universities and even filled out a GI bill in front of me
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Military Lawyer should know?
Customer: He has been borrowing money from everybody with his military stories
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Military Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.
Customer: And we just found he lied about all that and he is just an addict

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.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
