That's weird. A reporter must provide a requested transcript to a party to the case if the party pays the estimated cost up front, and an appropriate motion to the court may be made to seek relief. Which law applies depends on which court you're in.

Mere possession of a counterfeit document is not necessarily a crime.

It's not really up to the judge to do anything. You could, if you want, report it to the federal authorities, and see if they want to prosecute.

Yes, it does seem as though it may be some sort of a scam. A stranger who you met online sending you stuff such as cash is suspicious. Contact the Department of Homeland Security &/or the FBI.

Anyone can claim anything. If you have been charged you want to discuss the matter with an attorney who handles criminal cases in the county where the charges have been brought. Otherwise it's not clear what the issue is.
