A: Sorry to hear about your problem in getting your money back. You should consult with a consumer law attorney and possibly law enforcement as soon as possible. You haven't included much information here, but this could be a problem with the company, the third party selling you the car, or with a scammer. You will want to take action as soon as possible.

Best regards,

Dan

A: Small Claims is an option if the money is $10k or less. Collection is always a problem, though.
