Hi all! My mother in law got scammed by a con artist from the UK online and lost $7K (damn you Facebook!) Her status in the US is currently complicated and she doesn’t have a green card(tho she’s working on it), my wife(her daughter) is American. I want to report this to the FBI’s elder fraud department but I don’t want to complicate her situation even more. Does anyone know if criminal stuff like this and immigration related things are separated?

They are very much separated. ICE are feds but they are not a branch of FBI.

You may also need to report this to the appropriate authorities in the UK given the con artist is located there. I’m not seeing ways in which this will affect her green card case, especially if she was the victim. There are no questions about being victims of fraud or a scam. Rather, it’s the reverse: if she was suspected or guilty of fraud.

Report it to the Facebook fraud team as well. If this issue is at large or related to a fraud ring, authorities will eventually have to get involved. Also, FB can ban such accounts.

Hi 🐠, need some advice. Was told by my manager that time doing research (for info related to my client) is not client billable and has to be charged to the overhead code.

I asked for a non-billable code that counts towards utilization but was told my utilization is fine even though I’d be billing <40hrs & to use OH code
