I submitted the California Small Estate Affidavit to PayPal with a notary attachment. However, the check was made out in my deceased relative's name only. Which is not how other checks have been made out.
Two banks that I do business with, including Wells Fargo, have declined to... Read more »
I would send it back to PayPal along with a California Small Estate Affidavit (free forms online) filled out by the person who legally is the next of kin (or beneficiary of a will if there is a will). Ask them to re-issue to the correct person or persons. Good luck.
I was off the clock. Co worker called me at home. Asked about breaking the ethics rule. I told him if there was nothing else he could do then go ahead. Can I be fired with him if it comes to that? I did not commit the violation but I basically gave the green light.
Can you be fired? Maybe. Insufficient information to make a determination since not possible to tell what kind of rule you are talking about, or that you advocated co worker to break. Does not matter if you are on or off the clock if you are advocating breaking the ethics rules. Ethics do not...Read more »
Yes to Question 1. Look at the contract for Q2. You used up all your questions. Taxes? Which Taxes? Sales Tax? Property Tax? Income tax? Employment Tax? Perhaps you need to discuss your matters with a Tax attorney or an accountant.
This is not banking, it is Contracts. Contact your bank, see what you can work out. Get out your loan documents and read them carefully, maybe the bank made a mistake. It happens. Negotiate with them to get some relief.
This is a Probate Question, not Banking. You should repost so it gets out to the probate attorneys. I don't understand your situation. Your wife was in CA and you are in OR, so you are legally separated? If you are separated, why are you responsible for her debt? Her assets should be...Read more »

I was told by Best Buy that their staff sometimes don’t know of their own terms and conditions so it’s our duty to read it but how can we do so if we’re at the register with a line behind us. Besides that, they did not tell me upfront that the most important part about this card is the... Read more »
"Best" Buy means best for them, not you. This is a high pressure sales store, even at 19 years old you should have realized that the sales people were pushing you and not for your best interest. You can do much better buys online. At the age of 19, you have reached the age of majority,...Read more »
I freelance as a QB accountant and doing this for one of my clients. Their bank produced years of checks, but can only tell me which financial institution they were presented. I need to find out the name and account number from the respective banks. It is several thousand dollars.
Here is the situations. Husband and wife are both US residents. Husband is a Green Card holder, wife is a US Citizen. Do we need to file any tax form when the husband transfer large assets assets (e.g. money and stocks for $300K) to the US citizen wife? is it best to use a joint account or can the... Read more »
Many financial institutions will only cash checks for their own depositors. Their rules are internal and can change at any time. You might have a case if you believed that the bank was discriminating against you on the basis of a protected classification such as your gender, gender preference,...Read more »

You are not saying what type of debt they allege (consumer, commercial, line of credit, credit card), but if the default took place ten years ago and you did not acknowledge the debt during that time, most probably the statute of limitations would not allow the claim to be filed in court, or it...Read more »

I paid in full cash in March and it was supposed to be picked up my mid March but then everything closed, they now want me to pick it up but prom is over and I was supposed to receive it months ago. How do I get my refund.
If they refuse to give you a refund even considering you were never able to use the dress and they failed to deliver when it was due, it seems you have at least two choices available to you. 1. Take possession of the dress to use at a later date, or so you can sell it to someone who can later make...Read more »
