A: For fraud or any other suit against the seller it will depend on your contract or agreement.

If you do not have a written contract or agreement then you can still file a case but it becomes a he said/ she argument that can be hard to prove.

To file a suit against someone you need to know how to find them and be able to serve them with the case documents.

Another consideration is if you win against them in court- can you collect against them.

Make this a business decision: It will cost you time and money to file and litigate a case, even if you do it yourself, so make sure you have a decent chance at winning and collecting on a judgment.
