Victims of identity theft are often victims of multiple crimes and may be unable to clearly define what has happened to them or how it happened. They may be confused or even paralyzed by the experience.

I wouldn't worry about revenge, but I would be hesitant to fill out the affidavit insofar as personal data is requested. You indicate it is supposedly from a police department; I would contact the police department independently (not using the contact information you received in the mail) and...View More
The jail can hold her until she either bonds out or is offered a time served disposition ; unless you do something about it. If you are not involved in the crime in any way, you can contact the law enforcement involved in the case and inform them of the fraud. Giving a false name to a LEO is a...View More
My husband doesn't want us to divorce so all assets stay together and grow together more than divide them in a divorce. I finally agreed to sign a postnuptial to remain married and keep assets together and protect them from third parties... Now he tells me that a lawyer told him that a... View More

Your inquiry indicates that you writing from Indiana but directing it to Fla. attorneys. If this is an Indiana matter, you must direct your inquiry to Indiana attorneys. If it's a Fla. matter, more facts would be needed to evaluate this and determine what actions can or should be taken. Of...View 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.
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 -...View More
I suffered the following crimes from a neighbors' guest, who has been living in the building: stalking, car burglarized, wire transfer fraud on my Citibank check, mailbox tampered, bank statements missing. Lease violation to have a guest more than 2 weeks. Guest was just released from prison... View More
You might be able to obtain an injunction against the criminal. His crimes have nothing to do with your landlord; constructive eviction is a cause of action between a tenant and the Landlord. You have no remedy to terminate your lease; you can leave at any time, but you will suffer negative...View More
My sister has opened several credit cards in someone else's name, even got to withdraw a total about $5,000 from a Wellsfargo ATM (cc belonging to Wellsfargo) months ago, but this has happened over the course of a year or so, and nothing has happened, and today she received two calls she...

In short, yes. She will want to speak with a criminal defense attorney to represent her rights for these likely felonious charges. Depending on the number of charges brought, she could be looking at quite a long stay in federal prison.
To the best of my knowledge, no such attorneys exist.
IMO, what you want to do is not possible in this nation of laws that intentionally encourage unlimited commercial advertising with its corresponding egregious invasion of privacy coupled with complete "transparency" of...View More
In 2009 I was going through a hard time my sister told me to come stay with her in Columbus Oh. I came up from FL to see how things would go and they did not work out I was told she had 13 evictions in my name recently I had to go to court because the FWC gave me a fine for a fish that was two in...

It wouldn’t be the first time that a sister/brother used the identity of a sibling during an arrest. You’ll need to run an FDLE records check and find out where the DUI occurred, then work on getting it off your record. An attorney can assist you. Good luck.
Someone has been financially gaining by using a different name on documentation which has been notarized (as required to be valid and binding) but, the name does not match the legal name or initial on the FL ID. For example: the person's name is "Tom Smith Jones" (First, Middle and... View More
To answer that question, a review of all relevant documents and communications would be required because notarization is not normally needed to create an enforceable contract. So the issue is whether the faulty notarization makes a difference, as opposed it being irrelevant because of having a...View More
