In the wake of recent publicity that lying to a government agent is a crime, 18 USC Section 1001, here is a set of simple instructions should two FBI agents appear in person at your home or place of business:
FBI Person – I’m Agent so and so and with me is Agent so and so and we would like to ask you a few questions:
Person – May I have your card?…Thank you. I’m going to ask you to talk to my lawyer. He will be happy to answer your questions.
After the agents leave, call your lawyer immediately.
