You have to file a police report in most cases and they present it to the proper prosecutorial agency. Fraud is also a Civil tort where you would sue them. Without knowing what acts constituting criminal fraud are alleged it's hard to direct you to proper investigative agency.

You need an attorney. But the case will likely be tried before a jury as is the defendant's right unless waived. Without knowing the actual charge, the facts of the case, and all other factors that go into a defense, no one on a forum will be able to provide you with an answer as to how you "prove...

The ability to claim you as a dependent is not related to whether you're in high school. The question is did he provide over one half of your support.

I think you answered your own question. Your friend to use the credit card. That’s a crime because it wasn’t his card. Therefore, the government can charge him for using the card when he should not have use the card because it does not belong to him.

Q: What can happen to a notary that notarizes completely blank POA's? He tells people to fill them out later.

This guy works for the county jail. He passes them out to inmates. What can happen to him? I know this is wrong. They are complete blank, nothing filled out. He just notarizes them like this.

William Jaksa
William Jaksa answered on Oct 14, 2019

In my jurisdiction he would lose his ability to be a notary; if he's a licenced paralegal or lawyer there would be sanctions from the law society; depending on the context and extent there could be criminal charges for breach of duty or fraud.

Yup. A person can threaten you with reporting a crime or starting a civil action to correct your behaviour - that's perfectly legal. But be my boyfriend or else ... that is blackmail. The real question is what are you going to do about it? Leave her and face criminal charges? What is worse?
