I received gifts from someone in Nebraska, while I live in Virginia. This person willingly sent them and is now demanding them back. I refused at first but then I agreed that I would send their things back and in return, I wanted some of my things back. This person said no and threaten to get the law involved and I was just wondering to make sure, could I really get in trouble with the law over teddy bears that were gifts? I know this person will lie and say that I am not sending their things but it costs money to send mail which I don't have considering that I am unemployed. I'm seventeen years old and I'm afraid that I could get sued. Please help as soon as possible.

As I told you yesterday after you called my office, if the items were given to you
as gifts, then they are yours to keep and you are under no legal obligation
to return them for any reason.
You will not "get in trouble with the law" for exercising your right
to keep teddy bears that were given to you as gifts, so sleep tight.
