I am not sure what you mean by a "flag" from the fed. Did a pop-up appear on your computer saying something like the FBI is watching you? If so that is just a spammer scam and you should not worry.
If you got a letter from a federal agency - you need a lawyer now.

Avvo doesn't pay us for these responses, and I'm not your lawyer just because I answer this question or respond to any follow-up comments. If you want to hire me, please contact me. Otherwise, please don't expect a further response. We need an actual written agreement to form an attorney-client relationship. I'm only licensed in CA and you shouldn't rely on this answer, since each state has different laws, each situation is fact specific, and it's impossible to evaluate a legal problem without a comprehensive consultation and review of all the facts and documents at issue.
