A: I would hope if you are posting here that you have already contacted law enforcement and they were of no assistance. If not, you should contact the law enforcement agency for the jurisdiction and file a criminal complaint.

If law enforcement involvement does not resolve your issue, you will need to file a complaint in small claims court.
