Rando- If you're a real person please don't take this the wrong way, but it's getting harder and harder to believe this entire thread isn't a hoax. My bullshit meter edged into the yellow during all the "I'm giving him a second chance" posts, but now it's firmly pegged in the red. I'm not prone to conspiracy theories but it seems like either:
A) You're Jeremy or his partner, and all of this has been a smokescreen to lull people you've scammed into a state of inaction (becuase they'll think action is being taken on their behalf).
B) You're Rando and don't actually have a lawyer, but are trying to create the illusion of having one to scare Jeremy.
If this is legit, well then I don't know what to say. I don't like to blame the victim but you appear to be a chronically gullible person and I question whether you'll actually learn much from your mistakes. Assuming you actually spoke with Jeremy's mother on the phone, and even assuming everything she told you is true, your wording indicates an inappropriate level of trust.
You wrote, "..Jeremy's mother is taking control of this and will be paying me."What you should be saying is,
"All possible legal actions have been commenced. A person purportedly to be Jeremy's mother has said she'll pay on his behalf, but until the full amount has been returned I am prosecuting this to the fullest extent of the law. If and when the payment is received (which I doubt), I'll consider
dropping the charges."
See the difference?
To date your posts have read like those of a victim (enabler) in an abusive relationship. You grasp at rationalizations as to why, this time, things are going to be different. Just stop it. Take firm control of the situation and you'll find that Jeremy et al will scramble to satisfy you. Never, EVER, delay any of your own actions as a 'sign of good faith' to someone who has screwed you. It just shows weakness and you'll be taken advantage of, both now and by others in the future.
With all of that said I wish you luck. Getting scammed is a terrible feeling and can happen to anyone under the right circumstances. Assuming your story is real, then I'm sure you're a good person who meant well through all of this. But you've got break the pattern of being a victim. Play to win.
