I'm Zoey and I'll be assisting you. I'm reviewing your question now. Are you online at this time?

Expert:  Zoey, JD replied 1 year ago.

Yes, unfortunately. Person A can be charged with conspiracy to commit the burglary, which means he can be subjected to the same sentencing possibilities as the person who actually committed the crime.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
ok, but what if the case has already been closed?
Expert:  Zoey, JD replied 1 year ago.

How long ago was it closed? In what US state?

Is this a hypothetical or has this been reported to the authorities?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
no it isnt a hypotetical. I would like to explain by phone I already paid but for some reason It didnt work. The case was opened by the homeowner and the authorities closed the case, it was two months ago. But someone is threatening that they have proof via text messages that the event occored and who did it. They are threatening to take it to the police. But the property was not the homeowners and there is proof of that. She was holding it, she had actually said she would give it back but then changed her mind. Then a third party said they had proof with text that it happend and they were going tto take it to the police

if you dont mind staying online I will try to pay again for the phone conversation
Expert:  Zoey, JD replied 1 year ago.

Try to work that out. I will be online, though I will be eating dinner shortly and would not be able to call you for an hour or so.

Expert:  Zoey, JD replied 1 year ago.

Nope. Still shows payment failure.

Let me try this another way and maybe it will work.

Expert:  Zoey, JD replied 1 year ago.

I've sent you an email with a link for a phone call. Pehaps it can work that way.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I can not get it to work I think it's a security issue with my credit card
Expert:  Zoey, JD replied 1 year ago.

Then we will have to communicate here unless you want to try to pay with another card.

I'm going to be eating dinner in a few minutes. But meanwhile, did the people who told you about reporting this to the police ask for money? Did you make any incriminating statements to them.
