> This is a thief. He had stolen and resold stolen goods. How much would you ask if someone robbed you?
Been there. Did that.
I asked for monetary damages. I had to. "The law" had no interest in prosecuting the offender.
Now these were real damages, not something just imagined or a matter of wishful thinking. This was a repeat offender that had a trail of victims going in both directions. As I already said: "The law" just wanted to ignore him.
Eventually got the money back. A good lawyer helps. Now that's sorted, I am not sure I want to spend the cost of Harvard tuition to keep him locked away from the world. The public record of the court case will do enough to slow him down in future.
Again. These were REAL damages and not just some made up sh*t.
