The IRS transcripts say that a fund in my name was sold from a Fidelity account. I have never had an account of any sort with Fidelity or any financial company at all. I was given the name and address of the seller. This action seems like fraud perpetrated as a Trust. How do I get a copy of the... Read more »
Since the IRS rarely makes mistakes of this size (trust me), you are advised to consult an experienced lawyer to help you find out what happened and then to advise you what to do about it. In today's world of high-tech communication-- and rampant bank fraud-- you do not need a Connecticut tax...Read more »
In 2015 my Dad's wife said he had Alzheimer's so I would watch him at my apartment while she was at work because she said couldn't leave him at home by himself. His wife remarried him right after she found out he was getting a disability settlement from the VA. As soon as Dad got the money she... Read more »
Few lawyers can guesstimate the difficulty. So much depends on the documents, the witnesses, etc. If you would like to ask a local elder lawyer who litigates elder fraud to discuss the possibilities with you, please use the Find a Lawyer function on the website of the National Academy of Elder...Read more »
My understanding is that one of the elements is that it must involve a public official or someone who has a "legal duty". "Public official" is not at issue here.

There are federal crimes involved here because the activities crossed states lines. If you read the various articles about it, they explain what federal crimes are being charged in these cases. It is a good question.
Make a police report and you may have to hire an attorney to represent you. In some instances, one way is to call your local bar association and ask to be referred to an attorney referral service. You may need to hire an attorney experienced in civil law, specifically probate.
My attorney and my lenders attorney signed an agreed order revoking a substitute trustee sale snd ejoining them from non judicial foreclosure on a certain date. A year after they sell my house. Should the Agreed Order stopped them? Will that fact affect it now because it was supposed to resolve... Read more »
Before you attempt to assert my answer as being 100% correct, I need to advise you either to read the entire "Agreed Order" and figure it out yourself, or ask your current lawyer, or hire a different Texas lawyer to explain what appears to have happened in your old foreclosure case.
Yes they can be sued but your case would be quickly dismissed unless you can prove some egregious error because the judge has good faith immunity that is very difficult to overcome. Seldom is a suit against a federal judge successful.
A search warrant does not need to specifically describe a room in a house; simply the name of the suspected person, the suspected evidence expected to be found, the location including address and the basis for the warrant.

The FBI is a federal agency tasked with investigating and enforcing federal laws. Under our system of government, states are sovereign and can make, enforce, and investigate their own laws. The FBI has nothing to do with state law enforcement unless something becomes a federal issue.
Not exactly sure what your question is about, but a Civil Fraud case can certainly be made, and most likely also a Criminal Theft charge also. Illegal Income is still income that must be reported by the Recipient, and can be a legitimate business expense for the Defrauded Party. The 1099 could...Read more »
To my understanding, Congress and the FBI are merely fact finding and while attorney generals can prosecute, sitting presidents or vice-presidents who may replace them if impeached, can simply pardon or grant clemency.
