Q: Hello I am an International student and I have been scammed $ 4700 by somebody, how could I sue him?
I am an international student, I wanted to learn how to trade forex and I made some research and found good feedback about somebody. I contacted him in order to learn with him but he scammed me $4700. He puts me in a terrible situation because I have almost been expelled form the country because I was not able to pay $3000 dollars for my spring semester. By chance, my mother sent to me the money to pay for school and I want him to give back my money and also stop him.
A: Do you know this person's real identity and are they located in North Carolina, or at least in the US?
If so, you may have a chance at suing them to recover your money.
You can contact the North Carolina Secretary of State's Securities Division to file a complaint if this person committed broker fraud. Filing a complaint will give you a bit more information; but the NC SoS will not get your money back for you; you'll have to hire an attorney.
