• Isn't this fraud?

    "Fraud involves using a lie, deception, falsehood, or dishonesty in an attempt to gain a benefit." I was lied to and mislead to believe a woman I met online was poor, in need of financial help and was single. She led me to believe she liked talking to me and did so daily. She claimed the money I was sending her was being used for living expenses and college but I later discovered it was being blown on vacations with her bf who she convinced me did not exist. How is this not fraud? Cops claim she committed no crime but by definition this is most definitely fraud. Sure I willingly gave her the money, based on false pretense. Just like anyone who is conned out of money does in any scam does. Had I known the truth I most definitely wouldn't have gave her a dime, but she used the lies in order to benefit and it has caused me to suffer a great financial loss of over $75K. It has also ruined my credit, caused mental anguish and distress, depesssion and caused me to lose my trust in people making relationships strained. I think the cops are wrong. This has to be a crime. I think because it's a girl scamming a guy ppl view it as "no big deal" but if it was the other way around they'd be up in arms claiming fraud, extortion, rape, murder etc. This is unreal.

  • If a girl I really like smokes pot, should I still go out with her, or worry about legal concerns?

    We live in Connecticut. She has been the girl of my dreams for years. She’s so nice, caring, theoretically, hypothetically speaking, if she smokes pot for her massive anxiety issues because it’s the only thing that will help her, we hang out and a cop pulls us over and finds pot on her, will we both go to prison?... show more
    We live in Connecticut. She has been the girl of my dreams for years. She’s so nice, caring, theoretically, hypothetically speaking, if she smokes pot for her massive anxiety issues because it’s the only thing that will help her, we hang out and a cop pulls us over and finds pot on her, will we both go to prison? Or would they show sympathy? She said her doctors are for her getting a marijuana card, but not sure how long that would take. She’s a great girl, never been in trouble, helps others, works lots of hours, but I myself have anxiety about prison. I do NOT smoke. I’m for it, but I don’t drink or smoke. So hypothetically if this is all happening, could I be at risk in Connecticut of going to prison for being with her?

  • Is sending money overseas to a fiance from your SSI money legal?

    Best answer: If he is sending money to a stranger online, he can, it is up to him, but she is not moving over as if he is on SSI he can't afford to sponsor the visa.... sound like he is being scmmed for money and she will keep chatting while he sends that money

    Wanting to know what happens to an inherited property that a female owns before she gets married, (but the property isnt fully paid off yet). Lets say she keeps all property expenses in a separate bank account through the duration of the marriage. It stays only in her name. It was her father's property. She continues to make payments on it. But then she gets divorced. What happens to that property if she lives in California? Does the husband still get half of the property? Does she need him to sign a prenup before marriage to protect her property?

  • Can I rent a hotel at 13 with my parents permission?

    I wanted to go to Toronto with my friends, and we wanted to rent a hotel at Hilton hotel, but I heard the legal age is 18, but if my parents sign under they’re name would it be legal, and do they have to be there to sign or can they do it online.

  • Is this illegal? Just wondering before I do it?

    If I have an item sold to me at a very low price but the item could actually be worth more, Can I resell it for the maximum price? It sounds like a good idea to get extra cash, but I couldn't help but kind of feel guilty if I did it.

    His estate is completely insolvent and the lawyer has been sending notices to that effect to everyone he owed money to. The lawyer for the victims of the accident got the notice of insolvency and us now threatening my siblings and I, but none of us had anything to do with him. The lawyer says we should have taken his car away since we knew he was an alcoholic. Do we have any liability for his accident? None of us have spoken to him in years and I don't think I'd have a right to take away his car if we wanted to.

  • Wrongful Termination?

    I recently left a "long" term fully employed job of 3 years to take on a role that would fit into what I wanted to do for my career. It was a bit outside of the work that I had done in my past. After 3 months of working for the organization I was fired without warning with a one sentence explanation of why. I had asked continually during the hiring process weather they were willing to train me and get me up to speed. They stated they were and that the training process would take up to a year. In addition it was a small organization and they also hired another person for the same role with over 15 years of experience in the field; which was not mentioned during the hiring process or at the time of the offer. Both of us started within weeks of one another. I feel like I was made false promises during the hiring process and it took me away from a good solid full time job and now has left me unemployed. I do live in an at-will state. Is it worth seeking legal advice for wrongful termination based on false promises or do I just move on (understanding no actual legal advice is being given here)?

  • Can I sue my neighbors in civil court, and can they be prosecuted in criminal court for using my water to water their grass?

    I caught them on video camera taking their water hose and hooking it up to my water spigot. They watered their grass for about 5 minutes. They pulled the hose so much that it pulled the spigot out of the wall a little. Our stair rail had previously fell and we weren’t sure how it fell, but looking at the video,... show more
    I caught them on video camera taking their water hose and hooking it up to my water spigot. They watered their grass for about 5 minutes. They pulled the hose so much that it pulled the spigot out of the wall a little. Our stair rail had previously fell and we weren’t sure how it fell, but looking at the video, they could’ve knocked that down too, previously, because they had to lean over it to reach over for my water. My house is currently vacant because my tenants moved out. PS: this neighbor has a history of harassing us and our tenants because she doesn’t like renters and she hates when investors purchase property there to rent. She wants all owner occupants in the community. She is on the HOA board, and she’s a council woman for the town. She was also a mayoral candidate. Is this means to sue for the water usage and damage caused to my property and can she be prosecuted in criminal court?

I'm guessing they wanted to see if I could pay for this visit and procedure. I felt like I was being discriminated against or maybe not? The staff member claimed it was for demographic purposes? Sure. Next time I'm going to refuse to answer the questions if I don't feel comfortable with them. What do you guys think? Has this happen to you guys? Thanks in advance.

  • Are you still legally disabled even though you work full time, and make 2100 a month?

    I make around 2100 a month working as a security guard, I live with my parents and have Aspergers/ high functioning autism, would I still qualify for Medicaid as being disabled, because that’s what my mother is demanding that I do.

  • Should the mom have the final say on the name of the baby?

    Best answer: Yes I think so. Ideally both parents can compromise on a name, but if not I think the mother should have the final say, especially if you're likely to be the main caregiver for the child. Perhaps the father can choose the middle name?
