If I was in your situation, I would gather all of the information, hire a civil attorney, and sue her and the imposter for the amount of money stolen, as well as the cost for litigation. After filing the suit, I would also subpoena the place for footage of the transaction. Hopefully it still... Read more »

You posted this under identity theft. That is a big possibility. Without seeing the full report I cannot tell. Look and see if you recognize all of the debts. If not, put a fraud alert on the report, and contact the erroneous entries.

You should talk to an attorney to go over the facts of your case. You need to explain how and who stole your money. Basically, why Coinbase is at fault for your loss?

The terms of the trust will govern a lot of it. If the trust has provisions for your lifetime care, you can ultimately petition the court.

This would be best handled by a civil litigation attorney as it sounds like it involves several name changes or may require one now. You may be able to get free help from legal aid clinics but if not you can always reach out to attorneys directly and ask if they would help for free. Best wishes!

An attorney who deals with healthcare law and HIPAA could be a starting point, and depending on more information, possibly a medical malpractice attorney or civil litigation attorney, based on the issues that emerge in making a more detailed assessment. You could use the tab above (Find-a-Lawyer)... Read more »

Did you get a loan? Have you paid this loan? How are you liable if your name is not in the database?

Your post may have been overlooked in this category for the past four weeks. While it may have originally stemmed from an identity theft issue, at this point, the best guidance would probably come from a collections defense attorney. There is a section here (Collections). You could repost, and if... Read more »
My brother stole money from his employer to build a house on my mother's land. If this is taken to court, can the court take the house and land away from my mother?

Yes, it is possible. The benefit of the theft cannot inure to your mother.
So I was given two checks for a side job I deposit it to my account and they decline next day I was called that the check’s were fraud but they bank never gave me the money.

If you never got the money and the checks were declined, the bank must suspect you for fraud. There is something not right but if the whole matter is over $110 there is little a lawyer can do. When the courts reopen, make a small claims suit.
I have just received a letter from a organization that mailed my personal and sensitive information to the wrong address. They sent me a letter apologizing for it and offering free credit monitoring for up to a year. Would it be a good idea to file a lawsuit? Thank you.

It could depend on what kind of damages you incurred and whether you would want to go through with the expense and time of a lawsuit. There are attorneys who deal with identity theft/privacy type issues. If you wanted to look into the matter in greater detail, you could contact one of them. Good... Read more »

You did enough. If you did not give your social security number too, you are fine. Cancelling the card is sufficient. There has been no crime yet, so the police would not get involved. The IRS has nothing to do with this.
Broker was a national security dealer. When broker learned of death did not disclose post-death withdrawals from account to estate fiduciary.
answered on Nov 22, 2019
Who are you to this deal? It may not be prejudicial. Depends on where the money went and where it was supposed to go. If to you, you can sue. The broker cannot be liable for not knowing of death, but can be liable if it should have known authorization was improper.

The amount involved is small claims level if you want to sue to recover. Run your credit report and put a fraud alert on it if you believe he stole your number. Notify the card companies and get new cards.

If there is a criminal case, restitution will be part of any judgment. If not, you can sue. But, these debts are hard to collect.
