Default Obligated to report it but any benefit for me to help them stop scamming?

So I found out yesterday that someone I knew is still doing the same thing I was to get in trouble. This is a white collar crime an he never got caught. Well I hot info he is still doing it. And I can also prove it. I know I'm oblgiated to report it but is there any benefit for me to help them stop him from scaming. As far as probation wise. It's a federal probation that I owe restitution an like 2 of 5 years left. Any suggestions or thoughts are welcome

Not worth the risk to YOU. IMHO, either turn them in to LE (anonymously) or keep your mouth shut, take care of your own business and out of theirs. Good Luck. I know you want to help them stop, but in doing so you could become entrapped, entangled & incarcerated as an innocent person.

If you want to stop them, my advice is the same, don't involve your PO, or put your name to it.

Thanks for the info. That’s what I did when I was caught. Just kept her zipped and worked through it. I just hate what he is doing now. I am allowed to talk about my case so basically I was just redirecting people that visit my site to an affiliate link of choice if they bought something I got a small commission. So that got me a federal felony tag. What he is doing now is hust wrong and Errks me to the bone. So looks like only real option is anonymously. Only issue that wouldn’t stop him as they need proof an that can only happen one way. So thanks for the advice. It’s very much appreciated. This is almost behind me and I definitely do not want it to be back main stream in my life again. Thanks again

I was under the impression if you knew someone was gonna rob a bank(I know you thought they were kidding) and donít report it or know someone committing a crime you can get in trouble also for not reporting it. Just what I thought could be way off.

I'm not familiar with "not reporting" being a crime with the exception of any type child abuse. Since this isn't child abuse, if you don't know about it, you can't report it. Hear nothing, see nothing, say nothing, to anyone, before or after their downfall. Either that, or go the anonymous route and turn them in now. Either way, its your conscious that has to deal with it.

One thing the authorities are going to be wondering is how it is YOU have knowledge of that crime. Just having knowledge kind of implicates you just by association.

When you're already under government scrutiny just by virtue of being on probation, I wouldn't be rocking the boat or drawing any attention to myself at all if I were you.

Turn them in but don't involve yourself. You never know what could happen. And even if you give your name it's not going to get you any time off your probation.

Is this work related? i mean you dont have to say but it has me curious.....
You said he reached out because he needs something fixed?


even a sticker situation if its work related in that eventually when they do figure out whats going on, and if they can see anything coming back to you....that could make things er......a situation.



Maybe a reply something to the effect of hell no, I want nothing to do with this.
I dont know now what to tell you.
