Q: Does the MLA (military lending act) cover me in this situation?

1 Answer | Asked in Consumer Law, Contracts, Arbitration / Mediation Law and Broker Fraud for Oklahoma on
Answered on Sep 16, 2017

There is a federal Military Lending Act, but I am not aware of a state law passed in Oklahoma. The federal law does offer protections but you don't say in what way you think the MLA was violated. Please provide more information and I will evaluate. Thank you.

PS Don't let the time to answer the suit run, the predator will be able to get a judgment by default against you and you will lose your rights forever to defend yourself.

Q: What I do about a sacm landlord

2 Answers | Asked in Landlord - Tenant, Real Estate Law and Broker Fraud for Florida on
Answered on Sep 16, 2017

Your question does not provide enough information to give you a proper answer. If you are saying that you paid a deposit and now the landlord is not returning your calls, I would try to stop payment on the check. If that's not an option, I would write a letter requesting your deposit back and state the reasons why. If that doesn't work, you can file a complaint with the State Attorney's Office, which may help by getting the authorities involved. If the "scam" is due to another reason, you...

Q: If a broker lists a bank owned house at a specified price and I offer to pay that amount, is the broker obligated by law

1 Answer | Asked in Broker Fraud and Real Estate Law for Florida on
Answered on Aug 22, 2017

Absolutely no obligation. Multiple offers is a very common situation and they may have already had other full asking price offers. Or there may already be an offer over asking and your offer, or broker is giving everyone a best and final offer chance. And an ad is not a binding contract either. It is clear you need an agent or attorney as you are attempting this on your own without the skills to do so.

1 Answer | Asked in Consumer Law and Broker Fraud for Illinois on
Answered on Aug 7, 2017

You may have recourse, but fraud claims are extremely fact intensive, so an attorney would need to review all of the specific information to give you a comprehensive evaluation of the merits of your claim(s). That said, I would recommend organizing all information relevant to this situation, including all communications and contracts with the relevant parties, and consulting with an attorney individually. Many of us offer free consultations, so it will not cost you anything to obtain the...

2 Answers | Asked in Contracts, Broker Fraud, Business Law and Securities Law for Florida on

You need the services of an attorney who works for you, not the other party. I don't know why you were required to pay the other party's attorney, but it may be something in the contract. Your attorney can review the whole matter and advise you.

Q: I recently financed rims, services through a store. Cancelled order. How do I get my money back?

2 Answers | Asked in Broker Fraud, Civil Litigation, Contracts and Consumer Law for California on
Answered on Jul 22, 2017

You'd have to have an attorney review the finance agreement for cancellation requirements. If there is no written agreement, then you can probably go straight to Small Claims court for breach of sales agreement. This is not a "return" situation since you are not in possession of goods to return. This is a cancellation of a sales agreement, or a finance agreement, due to failure to produce the agreed products. I believe that there is a requirement in CA that finance agreements have to be in...

Q: Any recourse against a broker who lied about an expected timeframe and cost us thousands?

2 Answers | Asked in Broker Fraud and Consumer Law for New York on
Answered on Jul 18, 2017

Fraudulent misrepresentation is difficult to prove, actual damages would be difficult to prove in any case since moving is always a disruption of daily life. You can try to put together a list of some damages / out-of-pocket expenses incurred that wouldn't have been incurred otherwise and if it's below $5K in most parts of NY you can just file a small claim which is an expedited type of proceeding.

Q: What are the exceptions behind the student loan bankruptcy discharge exemption?

1 Answer | Asked in Broker Fraud for New Jersey on
Answered on Jul 8, 2017

You would have to "Google" that. You literally have to have one foot in the grave and one foot slipping into the grave to discharge even a portion of student loans in Bankruptcy. But if it is a private student loan and involves a fraudulent school it is a different situation.

Q: I got arrested than got OR an now when i was looking up my court date it said i had a warrent

1 Answer | Asked in Criminal Law and Broker Fraud for California on
Answered on Jun 16, 2017

After you are released O.R., then you still have to go back to court. If you miss that court date, then a warrant will be issued. If this is not what happened, there are other possibilities, such as a court clerical error, or a notice to appear with a different date but you never received the notice, etc.

Q: I have been sentenced but now have new evidence in my case. I wish to file a motion for reconsideration.

1 Answer | Asked in Criminal Law, Banking, Broker Fraud and White Collar Crime for Maryland on
Answered on May 25, 2017

How long since sentencing? If within 10 days of your trial date you can ask for a new trial. If within 30 days of disposition you can appeal, if within 90 days you can ask for a modification of sentence. Depending on what court you are in, likely will need to file a coram nobis for a new trial opportunity if past the time limits mentioned.
