You can always make a motion to the court for a trial date continuance (it may not be granted, but you can ask). It's more likely to be granted if you can get the creditor to agree to provide more time for you to gather the debt owed.
His relative Michael is willing to take over the debt through installments, and he wants to do an agreement which guarantees that John’s debt is transferred to him, so John is no longer owes me(creditor) anything.... Read more »
You can assign debt from one debtor to another, but the problem is if you cannot find the one willing to take on John's debt you won't be able to get the assignment completed/signed. You might need to hire an investigator/skip tracer to find Michael first.
Shipper refuses to reverse the charges for the goods, and keeps adding monthly late fees to my account. I was home at time of alleged delivery, as were 2 other people. The shipper and carrier are both large corporations. The shipper is in Louisiana. I have been a customer for 25 years. I filed a... Read more »
Sounds like both facts can be true, as in, they lived up to their end by delivering and you did not get it. So, the Judge will decide and who knows what s/he will decide??? Maybe it would be better to make a claim on your insurance?
I'm sorry this happened. What did your attorney say/do about this when they went for the restraining order AND showed this evidence you have on tape AND when they tried to evict you? Seems like THAT was the time to make sure you had your legal ducks all in a row. That said, it may be wise to...Read more »
I reached out to the chain franchise and they reassured me the franchise I went to was participating in the promotion. The specific franchise is profiting off not honoring a popular promotion. I’ve been there twice and had the same issue.
There are missing facts here but it sounds like a corporation is falsely advertising a promotion without a disclaimer that the offer may not be available at all locations. Or maybe not. You should consult with an attorney experienced in consumer class actions.
I pay her weekly for the car. I was short on my last payment to her. I told her I need one more day to go make the money so that I wouldn’t be behind. She said that’s ok. Then early the next morning she comes and picks up the car. Can she do that? The car is registered under my name.
Well, she did it apparently? Check your agreement to see if she has the right to do it? My guess is she likely does not have such a right. Also, if this is a landlord, any fight could get ugly, as in, you may end up losing your place of residence? You will want to sit down with an atty asap to...Read more »
Generally, I'd say that not a lawful move. You may want to see all agreements you signed or signed off on and have them send their written policy on this to you and where you can find it in the contract and/or online...
My friend ( so I thought) said I could keep my horses at her house. I told her I would provide hay I just need a day in advance notice. Well she never said a word to me and went and bought 10 bales of hay and wants me to pay her for them or she won't let me remove my horses. She knows that I... Read more »
Our agent told the tenants not to submit their offer if it was less than $900,000, this amount being $100,000 over the listing price in the agreement. This was conveyed without our knowledge or consent. How is this legal?
The flippant, snarky, and downright rude (apologies) answer is, "Yes, it is called a 'Request for dismissal of your case,' or if you are the Defendant, it is called 'Withdrawal of Answer to Complaint.' If you want to litigate your case, and go to trial, then you must...Read more »
I rented a storage unit yesterday, paid $165 it’s paid thru April 3. today I was locked out and my stuff is being kept unless I pay $689.00 because of a unit I rented that was sent to collections 18 years ago. Is this legal?
It is not legal what they are doing. The statute of limitations on that contract and any warehouse lien expired more than a decade ago. They are in breach of your new contract, guilty of conversion, fraud, and in violation of the covenant of good faith and fair dealing. They would have been within...Read more »
I payed a shop $6000 through PayPal g&s and f&f, half each. I never got my order for half a year so I contacted PayPal. I got my refund through g&s but I can’t get my other $3000 from f&f since he doesn’t reply to me on Facebook. Can I file against him or can the police do... Read more »
Back in 2019 I had an account with spectrum and everything went decent up until I noticed a service on my monthly bill I never requested or authorized and the company would remove said service when I called them out on it since I never used that service. I closed my account because it became... Read more »
there are fact specific layers here that require that you need to speak with a debt collection attorney and have all your documents and facts ready for review. if you were already in "collections" when you closed your account, then they were claiming that you owed them money. having a...Read more »
I received an email from a debt collection agency. I requested a debt verification from them, and they say that they are a commercial collection agency and the debt is not subject to FDCPA. Also, they sent me a document that does not show me the debt belongs to me. Is it legal to they keep... Read more »
They are correct that the FDCPA does not apply to commercial debt. Whether or not the alleged debt is commercial or consumer debt can be a complicated analysis. You can ignore them and they will eventually sued on the claim or not. If you want to be more proactive and determine if this is a valid...Read more »
Like many contracts and releases, it really comes down to the specific wording of the document. They can always threaten to sue, or even file a lawsuit, but to understand whether their action is realistic you need an attorney to review the documents.
The steel seat has fallen on her shoulder and head multiple times. It is not level, but sits at an angle more like a slide than horizontal.
