Legal Question

Asked on: 8/24/13, 4:33 pm

I live in Oregon and I was communicating with a man in Washington. He was having to go to South Africa to work for a couple of months. On his way there he lost a piece of luggage ( the airline misplaced it), but when they did find it, it had been broken into. He and his daughter lost the electronics that were packed. He asked my help, I sent him what he said he needed. I was told that he would pay me back when the job was finished. Then he also asked for more money to help with the job. They he wanted me to send him my bank info. I told him that I could not help him any more with money that I did not have. I told him that he had to stop asking for anything from me. He cut off all communication. I have since asked for him to pay me back. The second attempt to get my money back he final answered, because I told him I would give him 2 weeks and then I would have to go to the authorities. He then again asked for my bank info. I told him that a cashiers check would be just fine. The last answer I got from him was he would get back to me. Time is up as of Monday the 26th. I'm not sure who I should contact. I know that I was not very wise to help, spending $4,000. But I am having to pay off the credit card with intrest that he should have paid back. I did dumb, I took him at his word. So, will you tell me who I should go and see?
