This is complicated and I hope you can help me

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

California but these people they get to anyone from any state even from out of the country

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

I went to the local police but they didn't pay much attention

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

I just need to know if its possible to nail these people
this is a ring, they sweet talk to vulnerable people and make them fall for them
then they complain about their sad life and we stupid women feel sorry for them and give them everything they ask for
even we argue the no fact they give you guilt trips
for myself I caught on to late but have been investigating it
by contacting people who I was suppost send the money to and asked them if they knew such a person the two I was lucky to question told me it was a different name.
so I asked what was their names and phone numbers
please help me

Hello,

I have not had a chance to answer anything. I asked: Please tell me if you've filed any complaints with any state or federal authority yet? This would have helped me to formulate my answer.

Anyhow, you can go to www.justanswer.com/help to cancel the question. All the best.

ElaineAtlanta, GA

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.
