I live in California where all parties involved in the phone conversation have to give consent before phone conversation can be recorded.
My question is - how the information discussed over the phone could ever be used as evidence in California? The goal would be to handle it to either Police, IRS or Court in hopes that they would do something about it
Is really the only option to say in the call that conversation is recorded? But then the other party will probably stop talking with me...
Or would it be enough to have some third-party to silently sit in the call and later testify about the information contained? Are there procedures to follow so that it would not be "your word against my word" evidence?
