Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.

What USMC can do is confiscate your phone and do a search on it to find text messages that they believe are relevant to their investigation. They basically do a search just like the police would do a search. What this usually requires is the direction of your commanding officer.

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.
