I had a motorcycle up for repossession 2 years ago . It was parked on the side of my townhouse (no garages). It eventually was gone. Now almost a year and a half later I’m getting calls from collectors and repo saying they’re looking for the bike? I am very confused. I do not have it, and have... Read more »
Seriously? Your bike was stolen. If it had been repossessed, you'd know it. Now, instead of the creditor getting the bike back, selling it, and applying the sale amount to your loan, the lender (creditor) will probably sue you for the entire amount of the loan.
Sorry to hear about your experience. It's not quite clear what legal grounds you want to stand on. If you mean the debt... If you acquired the debt on your credit cards or loans in your name only then you are responsible. Did you get his promise to repay or share in writing? If so you could...Read more »

I've tried to get my money or my shoes, he won't give me anything. Cashapp can't do anything because you have to dispute the transaction no more than 60 days after it's been completed. Do I have a case here? Can I sue him in small claims court to get my money back. Him and his... Read more »
You “have a case” if you sue and a case number is assigned. You state that you sent him money but don’t indicate if it was a gift or a loan. Unless it was a loan, then you’ll likely lose. Hopefully you at least have emails or text messages clearly showing that it was a loan.

So I left and came back with my mother. In which they refused service to because she is associated with me. The whole time they... Read more »
You didn't ask a question. I assume, however, you would like to know if you can "cancel" the gym membership without potentially being sued for the balance due on the contract. Minors have no legal capacity to enter into contracts (unless they have been legally emancipated). If you...Read more »
They say it is from a payday loan but they won't tell me the name of the company. I did owe a couple of companies but I am sure I paid them off. When I ask they name of the company they just say cash store. I have no way to know if this is legit or a scam. They keep threatening with taking me... Read more »
That's a scam. First, you cannot be arrested by a collection agency. Second, legitimate debtors don't want to be paid with prepaid cards. Third, it is illegal to threaten to arrest someone in connection with a debt collection effort.
I paid $3000 to a lawyer who assured me of good things. My husband even denied a plea bargain with the state because this lawyer said he would and he can get a better one. But now he never answers and the state wants my husband to do even more time now. He now even has warrants that he didn't... Read more »
An attorney has an obligation to respond to his or her client, which in this case is your husband. Even if you were the one who originally retained the attorney, it should be your husband who is calling or texting. If you don't get responses in a couple of days then send an email. If you...Read more »
A Nevada attorney could assist best, but your question remains open for a month.

Unscrupulous debt collectors have unlawfully used threats of incarceration for many years, trying to scare debtors into sending them some money--any amount--which should not EVER be done before talking to a Florida lawyer.
