1 Lawyer Answer

A: Assuming that this person had an agreement with you to provide a good or service in exchange for your payment, then you likely have a claim against that person. These claims could include but are not limited to breach of contract, fraud, and unjust enrichment.

Depending on the underlying facts, you could be entitled to damages as well as equitable relief. We routinely handle these types of cases, so feel free to contact my office for more information.
