I ran a stop sign, kind of. It was a newly added stop sign on my old neighborhood street. On my way to work, in January, the sun would rise in a direction that completely blinded me on this road. I knew the stop signs were new but stopped way too early but knew it was around that location. When I started going again, the officer was parked on the cross street of the stop sign and didn\’t see me stop (before the stop sign line) and just thought I ran it. I didn\’t want to be late for work so I didn\’t want to try and explain and waste anyone\’s time. Shortly after this incident I moved from San Marcos to Encinitas and didn\’t received my court date paperwork until after the fact (I don\’t own a key to my new mailbox, my roommate does and she had it in her unread mail stack until recently). I was holding on to my ticket but misplaced that during the move as well. Needless to say, the court appearance fell off my radar and received the failure to appear in court notice from the DMV and my license is now suspended. Is there any hope to get this off my record?
I was introduced by an acquaintance to a Defi Trading platform where I purchased Tether USDT crypto currency from Crypto.com, then connected my offline wallet to the exchange and began trading USDT/Bitcoin futures contracts. I believed I was trading very successfully, so I transferred more money into the platform and believed my acquaintance was also crediting money into my account as well. I made a small withdrawal early in the process to “test” the process and the withdrawal went through. But after more “successful” trades, I attempted to make a larger withdrawal. At that point, the exchange informed me it did not allow such a large withdrawal, citing “anti-money laundering” protocol established by the “International Banking Regulatory Bureau,” which required me to trade at least 50% of my deposits in my trading account within 24 hours of attempting a withdrawal. So, I deposited more funds into my account, and was told my acquaintance had transferred money into my account as well, so I could withdraw the amount I wanted. The exchange called this process a “recharge.” Again, I believed I had made more successful trades and now had enough money to make my planned withdrawal as I met the minimum trade threshold. This time, the exchange denied the withdrawal request, again citing the “International Banking Regulatory Bureau” concern that my account was being used for money laundering, effectively freezing my account to withdrawals. I asked how I could prove I was not a money launderer and was told by the exchange I would need to deposit into my wallet the exact amount I had been trying to withdraw, which was $650,000. I contacted my trading acquaintance, and she stated her account had also been frozen and that I would need to comply with the exchanges’ instructions. I asked customer service what to do and was told if I transferred the $650,000 and provided a screen shot of the balance, they would release the funds. So I took out a loan and deposited about half of the $650,000 in two installments into what I believed was a safe account for such purposes. But as soon as the second deposit went in, without my consent or knowledge the exchange moved the money into my trading account. I protested but was told this was to secure my funds while I finished the verification process and that the only way to access my money would be to deposit the remaining funds to get to $650,000, although they said they would allow me to trade in the account, just not make withdrawals. My money was now trapped and so my wife suggested getting financial advice from a professional. We got leads to GearHead Engineers who confirmed that the whole deal was a sham. Their team of highly qualified hackers immediately launched an attack on the exchange platform and after 4 hours, I had recovered all the deposits I had made. The following is their contact information.
