Q: Us auto filled march 7 bankrupt and they stole from me and a lot of people.

A: If you suspect fraud or that the company failed to fulfill its contractual obligations, you should immediately seek legal counsel to discuss your options, which may include filing a claim in the bankruptcy proceedings.

You should also check the court docket for the bankruptcy case to see if a deadline has been set for filing claims.

If you did not receive a notice of the bankruptcy, there might be grounds to file a claim even if the deadline has passed. It's important to act quickly to protect your rights and potentially recover your losses.

Collecting all documentation related to the warranty and any communications you've had with the company will be vital.

You may also consider joining any class action suits if there are multiple consumers affected. Discussing this with a lawyer will provide you with guidance on the appropriate steps to take in this situation.
