Please allow me several minutes to read your facts and type my response both initially and when you add a follow up question or add facts. Please don't ask "are you there", "where is my answer", etc., since when you post it can erase what I am working on. If we are having a conversation unless I tell you I am going offline, I will be here but I may be doing research.

I have difficulty hearing on the phone so I do emails I have the previous email he has sent me
Lawyer: Dwayne B., Attorney replied 3 months ago

If you received an email that came from the website, not me. I don't participate in the telephone program.

As I said, I read your facts, is there a specific question with which I could assist?

I guess there is nothing you can do to help me thankyou
Lawyer: Dwayne B., Attorney replied 3 months ago

I can likely point you in the right direction if you can just tell me what questions you have. At this point I understand your scam but I'm not sure what you need assistance with?

i want to get my money back from this person who scammed me
Lawyer: Dwayne B., Attorney replied 3 months ago

The first thing to do is go to www.IC3.gov and file a complaint there. That is the federal agency which investigates and prosecutes internet crime.

You can also retain an attorney to file a lawsuit on your behalf. The lawsuit can be for fraud and you can get a judgment against him and then proceed with discovery to locate where his assets and money are located. Once these are located you can use the judgment to get an order garnishing his assets or accounts.

The lawyer can also get more information on who has charged him with fraud and, potentially, ask the prosecutor to pursue a criminal case on your behalf as well. If you can get a prosecutor to pursue him then you will be able to get an order of restitution against him and he will have to repay the money as a part of any plea bargain he makes or as a part of his probation/parole.

If your question has been answered then I'd offer my best wishes to you and ask that you please not forget to leave a 5 Star Positive Rating so I receive credit for my work. Also please consider clicking "BONUS" as a nice way of saying "thanks" for a job well done, although this is neither required nor expected. Of course, please feel free to ask any follow-up questions in this thread. I want to be sure all of your questions are answered.

I am about to take a break for a while but if you have any follow up questions please ask them in this thread and I will pick up when I return.
