I called them to complain about this error and get the money back because they had left 3$ in my bank acc and they said 7 days to get a check... okay whatever 10 days later I called turns out they processed the check. I read TN penal codes and nothing discusses this issue only what the check cashed... Read more »
No.. You gave them a check, and they cashed it at their leisure. This happens all the time, and the payee is not breaking a law by negotiating the paper early. You could try to sue the payee for breach of contract, but it is not advisable.
I settled over an $800+ bill in court and paid it off. Now the same collection agency on behalf of the same hospital, is saying i owe another $1900+ from previous service dates before the aforemention $800+ bill. Is this even legal? What should i do?
Could be legal. Sounds like you only settled one bill. Without seeing the other bills, it's hard to say whether they can collection for various issues including statutes of limitations. Consult local counsel to best determine your options.
I have no idea what you are asking for, but start calling around for a lawyer to help you. Most attorneys will either help you or refer to somebody else that can. You can look around for websites, but you really need to talk to one either on the phone or in person.

If your name is solely on the checking account then your mom is not allowed to take the money without your permission. If she does, it can be considered theft and you can call the police and report it. If it is a joint checking account with your mom's name then it is her account as much as...Read more »
Someone came to my roommates house today and dropped papers off for me and it just so happen to be a civil summons in regards to a c.c bill I defaulted on when I lost my job. I know they can take whatever I own in order to satisfy a judgement but it also says that if I want property exempt from... Read more »
Hire a competent attorney that understands notes and exemptions. Few know how to exempt property, which is what you should do now and in the future for at least 10 years. The attorney should attempt to make the contract debt as painless as possible, then properly exempt your chosen personal...Read more »
The contract can have whole statutes or partial statutes. It can be whatever the draftsman wants and the parties agree. Hire a competent attorney to examine it and see if it is enforceable, complete, unambiguous and non-contradicting.
If the bank is threatening foreclosure- that usually means they have a lien on the property, and if you acquired that property by inheritance, you acquired the property SUBJECT to the Banks lien: this means that if you want to keep the property, you will have to pay the loan. You don't owe the...Read more »
I am a victim of Time Share Resale fraud. I reported it to the state of FL. Now some 3 or 4 yrs later I now have a company named Consult and Recover saying that I have been approved for slot 63 of 65 for a payout since the Fraudulent people have been caught. The money is in an offshore account and... Read more »
From just reading your question, the first impression is that you're dealing with a scam. However, if that CA attorney checks out, then it may not be a scam. One would need much more information to make that determination.
Im liable for the money unless i truly believed the check was good? And i even offered to pay the bank back in installments if theyd draw up the paperwork, but he said no and now it's gonna be a lot more! Help!
I believe I already answered this question when originally posted; and since you still do not understand why you are liable for the money that the bank lost on the bad check you deposited allow me to try again to explain.
1. All bank customers who deposit checks that later bounce are...Read more »
I went on a cruise and I was given a $150 credit. On the day I was to debark I had a $150 charge still on my account. It came to light that the $150 credit was posted the account of one of other people I was sharing the stateroom with (who had already been cleared to debark). I used cash the entire... Read more »
No, the amount of money involved is way too small and the dispute can be solved between you are "the other guest." The law is not designed to solve every little problem that comes your way during this lifetime, The Latin phrase for this rule is "De minimus non curat lex."
Probably they can, especially if you agreed to it by signing the Note and the Deed of Trust. If they gave you some specific reason why they did not want your business, then it might be something to report to HUD, but I doubt there is any merit. Also you are talking about going after the Lender...Read more »
