Reads as though there is more going on than just the repair person taking photos inside your house. It is possible there is an invasion of privacy issue here, but it might depend on what was photographed and/or whether or not the contract says anything about photographs.
I was sued for debt and received a summons and complaint. I settled with them and sent them a cashier's check certified mail after getting the settlement offer via email. They got it and say they have filed a "stop service" and that I will get something in the mail in 25-30 days from... Read more »
The debt settlement letter states "this letter will confirm acceptance on behalf of the above referenced current creditor the sum of [dollar amount] as settlement of the subject account" (where dollar amount is the agreed to amount and is less than the full amount owed) and then goes on... Read more »
Sounds like it. The "settled" verbiage they are requesting actually protects them in a way; it acknowledges that you haven't paid the full amount owed, so they can properly tax you on the difference by sending you a 1099, which will effectively be income to you. Back in the day,...Read more »
My husband and I have several judgments against us for credit card debt. Two creditors have put liens on our house (which we own) and three have garnished our state tax returns. One garnished one of our bank accounts. I cannot pay these debts back at the current time, especially now, and my main... Read more »
From a practical standpoint, you might try working it out with the breeder. From a legal standpoint you can likley sue in small claims and at least be heard, that is the purpose of small claims, the result of the hearing may or may not be better.
It might be helpful to know.Pets have long...Read more »
I am not sure if i should get in contact with a lawyer about this issue due to not knowing if legal compensation is possible but i want to exhaust all my options. in short I have an account with the company Activison-blizzard (the people behind games like Call of Duty) this account was compromised...

What damages have you suffered? Has someone used this data against you? Has someone stolen money? Without actual damages, it's going to be tough finding a lawyer to do much more. I'm not sure how you'd be able to show them being complicit in data theft, let alone fraud, if the breach...Read more »
Im an AUDI enthusiast and also a custom jewelry designer and fabricator with a small LLC. Ive wanted to replace the metal AUDI symbol and vehicle badges (S4) that are in various locations on the vehicle with identical replicas in diamond encrusted gold/silver, but understand there are probably many...

You can do it for yourself on your own vehicle, but you wouldn't be able to offer them for sale to others due to trademark issues. If you were to sell them at retail, you would need to obtain a license from Audi, otherwise you could be sued for trademark infringement.
I see several on here, but i can't seem to get one to return my phone calls or email. If you specialize in going after debt collectors for violating the FDCPA or know of one located in that area, can you please leave a working phone or email i can reach them or you by? I would greatly appreciate it.
This is the second debt collector I'm dealing with. The first debt collector i was dealing with couldn't provide all of the information i requested in my validation request letter, so they passed it to another debt collector. People keep telling me that paying a debt collector is a very... Read more »
You are right to be wary. Some lawyers will give you a free consultation and review these validation letters and responses to see if you have a potential legal action. If your goal is to pay the debt and not be hounded by additional debt collectors I would advise you to consult with a FDCPA lawyer...Read more »
I never received a bill from the original creditor. The first letter i got from the debt collector was them threatening to sue me, so i sent 2 letters requesting validation. The first time, they didn't provide all of the information i asked for. The second time, they didn't respond and i... Read more »
You could call the law firms for both debt collections, and ask them who the original creditor and the original account number was for each. You could also send them a letter asking the same questions. Keep in mind that when you talk to them on the phone, they will be recording the phone call. You...Read more »
I was buying a house and closer decided to end the deal due to lender not meeting closing date. I know meeting closing date is not guaranteed but every time I try to contact them they never called back. When I was finally able to contact them (two day before my closing date) they said they needed... Read more »
Are you using a Realtor? That person is probably the first person you should (or should have been) in contact with. Generally, since the mortgage lender is not a part of the contract you made with the seller, it would be hard to assign liability to them.
I have lived in a small Detroit suburb for 20 years and recently a female server, at a bar I was dining, informed her manager and staff that I made her feel uncomfortable. I was asked to leave by another staff member. So I asked for the night manager whom reaffirmed the servers opinion and asked... Read more »
If you want to prevent this from becoming a bigger and more known issue, the best thing you could do is let it be and not go back to this establishment. It doesn't matter what other business owners say about you; what matters is that a server, her manager(s), and the owner of this...Read more »
I had a verbal agreement (recorded) with a pest control company to remove a wasp nest with ONLY a non residual contact aerosol pesticide which would be used to kill the wasps quickly in their nest then the nest would be put in a bag and pulled down. I was assured that the chemical used would not... Read more »
You want to know if you have a meritorious case. A lawyer will require a lot more information to answer this question. The biggest problem with your potential case is the verbal contract. Your recording may or may not be admissible in court based on multiple factors. If it's not admissible,...Read more »
Saying it would just be a couple days all they had to do was replace a panel they forgot to but when the fire marshal returned when the panel was replaced he did a fuller inspection and found the dryer was so full of lint it was actually all the way up in the ceiling going about 40 feet back. This... Read more »
Your question references a condition at the property which could've, but in actuality did not adversely affect you. In the eyes of the law, you lack standing to sue, because you have not suffered a particularized injury traceable to the hotel's conduct. Sure, you...Read more »
Got some landscaping done, before work started requested and got a written estimate. Based on that we agreed to proceed. Work was done. Then we got an invoice for $3400. Twice the estimate. At no time during the work being done, which was over a few weeks, did we get any communication that the work... Read more »
Assuming there was no language in the contract regarding the estimate (e.g. "this is just an estimate, you agree to pay for all work performed"), you seem to be correct. I would have to review all documents to provide you with a definitive opinion.
Purchased the Door on 7/20/2020. The door arrived at the box store for pickup on 8/10/2020. I picked it up a day or so afterwards. After it was unloaded in my garage. I inventoried the track kit contents to verify it had what it need before I began assembly. I noticed that the struts both had been... Read more »
Was your car parked in a tow zone? Was a tow truck called? Did the tow truck arrive and begin hooking up the vehicle before you came back to object? If so, this sounds legal. The harm was already done (breaking the law by parking in the tow zone). There is no legal loophole that says "but if I...Read more »
