Ellettsville, IN asked in Bankruptcy and Consumer Law for Indiana

Q: In 2012, I purchased a voucher, on sale, for a digital photo-to-canvas transfer. The voucher says that the promotional

promotional value of the voucher is good for three years (ending June 21, 2015) but that the paid value of the voucher never expires. I found my credit card statement with the purchase showing on June 28, 2012, and the company name is exactly the same as it appears for the current company, but I've been told that since the company that sold me the voucher declared bankruptcy in Jan 2017, my voucher can't be processed. Another company bought the name? They want to offer me a % off, but it's the same offer they're giving everyone right now, so not a bargain. If i show them what i paid for the voucher, must they give me credit towards a purchase for that amount?

A: EVEN THOugh the middleman declared bankruptcy, the company is still liable for the service sold bc they were the one providing it. They owe you the paid value of the voucher, in whatever form that may be.
