Is mortgage elimination a scam or legitimate?

The possibility of losing your home to foreclosure can be terrifying. The reality that scam artists are preying on desperate homeowners is equally frightening. Many companies say they can get a change to your loan that will reduce your monthly mortgage payment or take other steps to save your home. Some claim that nearly all their customers get successful results and even offer a money-back guarantee. Others say they're affiliated with the government or your lender and still others promise the help of attorneys or real estate experts.

Unfortunately, many companies use half-truths and even outright lies to sell their services. They promise relief, but don't deliver. In fact, many of these companies leave their homeowner customers in worse financial shape.

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the nation's consumer protection agency, wants you to know that there is a Rule in place to protect homeowners. The Mortgage Assistance Relief Services (MARS) Rule (also known as Regulation O) makes it illegal for companies to collect any fees until a homeowner has actually received an offer of relief from his or her lender and accepted it. That means even if you agree to have a company help you, you don't have to pay until it gets you the result you want.

If you're struggling to make mortgage payments or facing foreclosure, the FTC wants you to know how to recognize a mortgage assistance relief scam and exercise your rights under the Rule. And even if the foreclosure process has already begun, the FTC and its law enforcement partners want you to know that legitimate options are available to help save your home.

Depends on the text. You can probably solve that on your own as you know why that text was sent to you in the first place.

Can you drop out of college at any time?

Yes, you may drop out at anytime, however; if you plan on withdrawing out and have taken out student loans/grants there is a predetermined time frame in which the school has to return any payments received. (Ask your school counselor to find out how many weeks you have if this is something you are interested in.)

If the school is required to return funds then you will only be responsible for the difference of what was spent. If you do not drop out soon enough then you will still have to pay your student loans back in full (in installemts unless you can afford to pay in full).

If you have paid out of pocket for you tuition then the same applies they will refund you any overage you have paid if you withdraw within their specified time period. Otherwise your payment will not be reimbursed.

Is there a law on casino money won?

Yes, lots of 'em. Each state has their own sets of laws and federally, you are supposed to claim your winnings, but that's pretty much on the honor system. When you claim your winnings on your federal tax, don't forget to subtract your losses. You can easily obtain a win/loss report from the casinos you frequent if you call them, or stop by their customer service or players club booth. If you don't have a players' card at that casino, though, getting a win/loss report will probably be difficult or impossible. Casinos are not required to send the win/loss reports to the feds, so don't worry if you feel the amount you have won is too insignificant to claim. The IRS won't come and take you away or anything. I would, however, strongly advise you to claim any winnings in excess of $10,000. If you made $10,0000 all in one day, you're going to be on the radar anyways, because, just like banks, casinos are required by federal law to fill out a CTR (currency transaction report) for cash transactions over $10,000. These are not sent to the IRS, but to homeland security, to identify possible cases of money laundering. But if one government agency has this information, how hard would it be for the IRS to get wind of it?

Beyond the federal, the only state I can answer for is Indiana. If you win a jackpot of $1200* or more in the state of Indiana, 3.4% state tax will automatically be taken out. You can get this back if you are not an Indiana resident, although I hear that can be quite a hassle. If you win a drawing, you may be required to pay state taxes also. Just remember, though, if you don't have your current drivers license, state ID or passport with you when you win a drawing or jackpot, you will not be able to claim your prize until you can produce one of those valid documents.**

*The $1200 amount is the same for any U.S. state, it is the amount that the IRS set as a minimum. However you need to have hit 1200 in one shot. One spin, one hand of poker, or blackjack, one roll of the dice, whatever. If you play for a while and get small hits a lot and cash out more than 1200 you're fine. ( I played for a while, built my total up to $1300, cashed out, and went home. however I also hit a win for $1500, when I was paid, the casino workers also brought a tax form to fill out before they gave me the $$ ) You'll see progressive amounts for some slots/video poker stop at $1199, so more people will play them, knowing that if they win top payout, they don't have to pay taxes.

**If you don't have valid ID on you at the time of the win, you will be removed from the property, and the casino will keep the win and possibly any money you have in the machine. You cannot be in a casino without proof of age/ID, no matter how old you are, or "who you know". If gaming control comes in and cards everyone, than everyone better have ID, or the casino can get fined, or even get their license pulled.

Why is there no statute of limitations for murder?

First lets look at why we have the concept of statute of limitations in general. We have statutes of limitations to ensure the prompt prosecution of criminal charges and to the accused of the burden of having to defend against stale charges after memories may have faded or evidence is lost. On the other hand, Murder can be exceptionally difficult to prove- it may take years or decades to develop enough evidence to prosecute someone for murder. Rather, the legislature took the side of the government's interests on the issue, and the concept is not one originating out of "constitutional law" as the quite similar doctrine of latches developed from the case law in the context of civil law. However, as a trade-off, the Defense can still use "time" to impair the credibility of the prosecution's witnesses under trial rule 609, which pertains to impeachment of witnesses.

Is murder legal anywhere?

Societies have sanctioned murder (pursuant to a death penalty) when committed by a government. Although justification for such killings is commonly advanced by claiming a retributive purpose (this reasoning goes back to biblical times), it is a form of profound denial to claim they are completely free of "malice aforethought". Attempts to legitimize such killings through social consensus do not negate their moral status as murder. There is no question that such killings are "deliberate and premeditated." The universally experienced discomfort connected with killing another human being has yet to be fully owned up to in the few jurisdictions where the death penalty is legal.

Killings associated with war are similarly excused as something other than murder. At its core, the distinction is conceptual and illusory.

Remember, murder and killing are distinctly different legal concepts.

Killing is causing the death of another person.

Murder is a legal definition of certain types of killing. By definition, an illegal killing is murder, and thus, murder is always illegal.

Virtually all known societies have situations where killing is perfectly legal: such situations can depend on a great deal of variables, from the "who did" the killing, do "who was" killed, to the actions of either at the time of the killing, to other conditions in force at the time of the killing. All of these circumstances must be collected together to determine if a killing is murder or not. If the killing is deemed illegal, then it becomes murder.

Thus, murder is never legal anywhere.

What does motion denied as moot mean?

It may depend on the context, but in general it means that the motion no longer has any value so it was denied simply because it doesn't matter. For example, suppose you file two separate motions: one to dismiss a case against you, and another to exclude certain evidence so it can't be used against you at trial. If the judge grants your first motion, then the second is meaningless; no evidence will be used against you because there will be no trial. Therefore, the second motion would be denied as moot.
