Bank said check wasn’t in the system. Called company and they said I would have to wait a couple of hours for the check to clear. I signed over my ownership of the car shouldn’t funds be immediately available?
answered on May 19, 2023
Sorry for your issues. The funds from the company should 'immediately' be good unless you had some other agreement with them. The bank saying the check was not in the system seems concerning. Monitor this closely, as the earlier you catch a fraudster, IF that is what happened here, the... Read more »

Assuming you are in CA it is almost certainly beyond the SOL. As noted by Attorney Dorfman, it is possible for things via trick or otherwise, to change, including (I hear, not 100% sure) if you agree to pay (or actually pay) some portion of it? Also, it is not about the default on the loan but... Read more »
Navient Private student loan. The loan was closed (charged off) 4 years ago, but every month they report it late. My score dropped over 100 points when it was charged off and I have been able to increase it a little bit but the monthly late payment report from them continues to hurt me.

So, charge off means essentially, they are no longer trying to collect or believe they can and then typically, they sell it to someone for pennies on the dollar, who specializes in collecting bad debts like this one. What it does not mean is that you no longer owe the money or that you no longer... Read more »
I bought the car maybe a month ago and it wasn't until I put it up for sale that a previous owner let me know that it had different VINs. This isn't the same one that sold me the car, it's the one prior to the seller that sold me the car. Only one VIN is mismatched and I'm... Read more »
answered on Apr 19, 2023
The main reason someone (usually) cares about 'matching VINs' is the car is some type of collectible.
Usually, if one is buying a collectible, one knows to check for this issue. IF the VIN was not misrepresented,
it's more likely to be on the buyer than the seller in... Read more »
Y a truck. Then wrecked said truck 3 days later. Can i retrieve the 7k i put down for the truck because it was purchased using my credit?
answered on Mar 7, 2023
I do not think you have a loan. I think you have a contract that includes their promise to deliver a car to you and ownership of said car, when the contract is paid off. That is one reason you have insurance, should this event occur. That insures their interest and hopefully yours. Here's... Read more »

There were (40 yrs ago when I sold life insurance for a living) two kinds of policies. That's changed I'm sure, over the years, to add some hybrids and more? Anyhow the two basic types of policies WERE
1- Whole Life
2- Term Insurance

You may be in luck. Based on the year of your car and the mileage, there is a very good chance you have a warranty. The bumper to bumper will usually go at least 3 yrs and 36K miles. The powertrain, can often go up to 100K. Get in touch with NISSAN right away...
I purchased a used 2021 Nissan SUV from a Lexus dealership. It had under 32,000 miles so I still had a transferable dealer warranty from Nissan.

It is unlawful to sell a NEW car with an open recall. It is negligent, unfair, misleading and perhaps more depending on who said what and when, to sell a USED car with an open recall.

A copy of your check should be good enough to expense it.
In my opinion:
The management most likely is not wanting to give you a receipt
because they do not want a written trail, ie, they are likely either
avoiding paying taxes on it, OR not telling the real LL they... Read more »

The car had damaged underneath I didn’t see until 4 months after I bought the car
answered on Dec 5, 2022
Have it looked at by a professional body shop. Should cost no more than 100.00 to do so.
Then, if it is a 'real' problem, contact dealer in writing. Then, if they do not agree to help,
which is virtually every time, contact an attorney.

Can't tell IF you have a case without more info, BUT, since it is an RV and most are lemons, you may. THAT said, the CA lemon law covers "New motor vehicles" and "Consumer goods." Your RV is NOT a new motor vehicle. Also, to be a 'consumer good' under the CA lemon... Read more »

Feels more like crimlaw than consumer law. AND while I do not handle crimlaw matters, I think it is VERY rare for a 'cop' to write a letter. I think if this is a misrep or a scam, you may have a nice counter (type) claim? Good luck with it...

Hard to say, but I'm sure you have options. Assuming you and the dog have bonded and love each other, I'd get a value for this one and assuming it is lower than $3,000.00 I'd demand the difference from the seller, if it were me.
