Leavenworth, KS asked in Small Claims for Missouri

Q: How do I proceed with this issue...I believe it’s fraudulent and just want my money back.

I have a possible issue with possible fraud. I basically gave an online entity money in exchange for helping me to build my real estate business. They promise in 10 weeks they will get you at least 1 new client with their program and of course they did not deliver. I paid them a bunch of money up front and just want a refund. I have sent them a cancellation request/refund request letter via email. They are wanting me to schedule a video call to move forward. Call is tomorrow. Do I do the call? What things should be avoided in call? What kind of lawyer should I reach out to and do you think I need to get legal action started? I haven’t threatened legal recourse yet but think I should start that direction. What do you think I should do?
