My question involves criminal law for the state of: NA/Internet
Hi everyone. I am new here so I hope I placed this in the right section. Please feel free to move it if it's in the wrong spot
I belong to a close knit forum, where we always try to help each other out. Recently, one of our very active and beloved members became ill and ultimately, died
A husband and wife (J&C for confusion sake), both members of our forum, mentioned it would be a good idea to hold auctions to raise funds for the widow and her three small children. Obviously we all agreed and many of us donated items to be auctioned. When all was said and done, we raised about $5400.00.
J&C were to collect and dispurse all monies to the family in need. A total of $1600.00 was indeed sent to the widow, but the remainder of funds were spent by J&C to buy drugs and pay an outstanding utility bill.
I am afraid it gets worse
J&C tried to say that the widow was paid in full and posted a supposed check for the remainder amount of funds. The check was found to be a fake and J&C later admitted to the fact. They also admitted to buying the drugs and paying their bill.
They now refuse to pay ANY of the funds owed. As an online community, donations from around the US and other parts of the world, we are at a complete loss as to what we can do.
I can post a link to the thread if needed...there is also pictured proof of the check fraud, edited bank statements and admission of guilt by the accused.
Thanks for reading!
