Best to face this head on. Otherwise, there will be a warrant for your arrest. And while the police likely won't come out with the SWAT team to arrest you on something like this, these sort of things often creep up and catch up with you when you can least afford to deal with it: you get pulled...Read more »
I was contacted by a law firm representing US Bank. For a credit card that was open in 2005 and payments made on it until 2008. A balance of 5000 was never paid. I have no recollection of this. It has never been on my credit report. It could have been opened by my ex wife. We were going through a... Read more »
lease. We are 70 and retired. She has left apartments with unpaid rent in the past. We said we could not but she said that the company had waived the cosighner. We gave her furniture and she moved. We heard from her and she sent pictures of the apartment. She... Read more »
This might be something you may not want to do given the family relationship, but is something you would likely need to do to clear your name: you will need to report this to the police. Until you do, the apartment complex will continue to hold you responsible for the balance.
A friend of mine said he had done work for someone but didn't have an ID to cash a check they were paying him for the job so he had it put in my name. I went to cash this check and the bank acted a little fishy over this check and wanted me to stick around to ask the owner if it was legit. I... Read more »
Yes you could be convicted. Your defense goes to your state of mind and not knowing the check was a forgery. That can be difficult to back up. The prosecutor will almost certainly be convinced you were in on it. You should get a lawyer.
I had to report to pretrial services on my OR bond I didn't I went back to jail! I had a new bond set used bail bondsman to get out ! Would the conditions be the same or would new conditions be set & me be informed because its a new bond
He left me w35$. Can I change the irrevocable trust and sell my home? Since I can prove fraud, identity theft, elder abuse. I owe109,000 on my mortgage can I get a home equity loan on a 6 family ? I need money for legal fees and dental work.
I’ve never signed anything or agreed to assume the mortgage and I’ve never seen a single paper about the actual mortgage yet his mortgage company claimed it to my credit and falsely claimed the payments haven’t been made yet they all have through direct withdrawal , I’ve provided them with...

It is possible a Defamation/Libel Suit exists, but you may not have any Damages. Look hard for a lawyer that represents consumers against debt collecting. If you did not sign or assume the Note, then it is not your Debt. You may wish to get the POA revoked.
This is not my area of practice, but your question remains open for two weeks and it frustrates me that a veteran might have their benefits held up due to administrative discrepancies in personal information. Here is an address link to a page in the SSA website -...Read more »
I left my old job in 2016 and never got a chance to clean out my locker. I believe whom ever they gave my locker to got that info from old check stubs I forgot I left in there. The fraud starts in 2016 with my old address and phone number linked to my previous employer with many inquiries for... Read more »
not likely unless you have specific proof showing your old employer gave your information to the person that stole your identity (knowing that the person will steal your identity). it's a hard burden to prove.
A Georgia attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. Your post is very brief and it could be difficult for someone to figure out what kind of attorney you're looking for. You could try reposting (don't include personal information - this is a public forum),...Read more »
And your question would be can the store legally do that? Probably, but what you mean by "personal demographics" is unclear. If I were a customer at that store, I would probably not buy that item if your name was scribbled all over it.
I have filed police complaint.The person cheated me by signing lease and showed fake ID proof .Sent.me.fake check for deposit and little over of deposit amount and asked me to transfer remains amount to his bank account
I know only the bank account number and routing number and bank... Read more »
This depends on several factors. However, contacting the prosecutor's office and letting them know that you don't want her to be charged is a first step. You can request to fill out a non-prosecution affidavit, but ultimately it is up to the prosecution to determine if they will dismiss...Read more »
The problem is, for the police, there is no proof they stole it or are using it - either of which would be a crime. Your best bet may be just to apply for a replacement card, and disassociate yourself with this person.
