After a national bank allowed a fraudulent account to be opened in my name I froze my credit with all three bureaus and added a fraud alert. Weeks later, another national bank ignored the freeze and the fraud alert and opened new accounts in my name, along with obviously suspicious activity.
answered on Mar 4, 2023
You may have recourse against the national bank that ignored the credit freeze and fraud alert. You could start by filing a complaint with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) or with the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) if the bank is a national bank. You could also... Read more »
What's the outcome of relieving this charge
answered on Jan 16, 2023
Not sure what the circumstances are you're asking about. But if you are a victim, your first call should be to the police. They, in conjunction with the prosecutor, will determine what charges are appropriate.
It came to my attention by way of my daughters FOC case that I was being accused of making a false CPS report against my grandsons father.

I'm unsure what you are asking. If your concern is that a call you made was reported inaccurately, that's one thing. If you're saying you never made a call, then that's a whole other thing.
The information you received through FOIA are reports, which are always subject... Read more »

I'm not sure how TikTok would be liable to you. Most social media companies, in that finely printed terms and conditions no one reads when they sign up for an account, say basically "we're just a platform and not responsible for the content users upload".

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...

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.

Someone has stolen my social security card I know who stole it and that they still currently have it local authorities said all they can do is nicely ask him to mail it to me.
answered on Sep 24, 2021
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.
I need to know what to do in order to get the police to do something about this felonious crime.
answered on Sep 20, 2021
I'm unsure what else you can do other than file a police report.

A durable power of attorney terminates upon death of the principal. Once your mother died, you had no power under the POA. If you believe someone forged a document submitted to the probate court, you should contact the court.

First, does your lease - the agreement YOU entered into with the landlord - allow for this arrangement (subleasing)? And if so, is the landlord aware that this is what's going on now? If not, the amount owed is between you and the landlord.
