they are working with title company to buy this for a chineese company. the amount sounds great , but in order to process, I have to pay the RFC fee to do business in mexico - in order for them to release by money by the government.
He's aids that it needs to be paid immediately or they are going to serve me and have me arrested. There is also a woman that I talk to that says she is an attorney with a totally different phone number which is from my state. They both tell me the same thing. I legitimately owe this debt,...

Be suspicious and skeptical. You cannot be arrested for not paying a debt unless you are in contempt of court. You also cannot be 'locked out of your bank account' unless they have attached it during a court proceeding. This sounds like a scam but a lot of debt collectors utilize high...View More
Before I withdrew from school, the college wanted me to stay so they offered to let me do the online adult program. Two weeks before I was to do the online program, they called and said they weren't going to allow me to do it because my advisor didn't want me to. They waited until the... View More
No, you are the hook for your student loans even if you did not complete your degree. You aren't paying the school at this point you are paying the loan provider. The school already got their money. If payment is an issue you can work with your student loan provider to get onto an income based...View More
I gave $580 which was half on car plus parts needed for a repair. Was to pay remainder $450 5 days later when repairs were done. Seller won't return calls or texts. Seller sold same car to another person which they didn't get car either. Can I press charges?
Most definitely. Since the amount is rather low, you should most likely file in a Small Claims court where the limit for recovery is $6,000. Go to your local courthouse, visit the Small Claims clerk desk and ask for the proper form. The filing fee will probably be $125 or so but it varies from...View More
My mother recently passed away. Trying to get things taken care of, my sister called the mortgage company to inform them of her passing. While speaking with someone, she asked about us assuming/taking over the mortgage. (My mother willed her mortgaged home to both my sister and I) They told her,... View More
My husband owns his own custom car shop. A customer left his vehicle at the shop after going over what work he wanted done. They did not discuss a date it would be finished. There was no contract with a final finish date, only an invoice stating the amount of bill. The customer called my... View More
I am surprised he was able to get police to assist him in taking his car back. He "can" do that, because obviously he "did" do that, but your husband can sue him for the value of parts and labor he put into the job.
My car's battery died and I had to leave it in a parking lot of a business. The towing company now wants me to pay $200. Can they charge whatever they want or are there guidelines they have to go by? Thanks.
I received a notice to appear to answer questions about my nonexempt property subject to proceedings supplement. I am paying a garnishment for one company right now. not sure what can or can not be done and if it is mandatory to go
It sounds like you may be a defendant in a small claim, upon which a judgment may have been entered, and for which proceedings supplemental to execution are pending. Long story short: yes, you need to go to court. Moreover, get an attorney to help you with this, as you apparently have a judgment...View More
Probably not, but it can certainly affect the outcome if the date is relevant and material. NOW, if the debt collector is fraudulently representing to the court that a payment was made in order to get around the statute of limitations, that is very significant! Contact a consumer rights lawyer and...View More
I bought two used cars in Indiana as is, one truck & one car. After purchasing I had a mechanic look at the vehicles and he found many issues with both. The truck had deliberate rigging to the brakes, starter, and exhaust. Some held together with vice grips. Is there and legal action I can take... View More
I looked at the last two years and noticed interest applied to the loan jumped all over. According to a normal amortization schedule, interest payment should have only been above $200 the first month. Only 10 payments from the 2... View More
I get paid quarterly and use the money for bills. If they were attaching my paycheck they can only get a percentage. Would that stand in the case of my bank account since I won't get paid again for 3 months?
I was sued by an apartment I moved out of 3 years ago. Apparently they had taken me to court and had a judgement entered against me. The court said they served me a notice which I never got. They said I owed them for damages. That debt was sold to a collection agency who is taking me to court based... View More

RANDOLPH county Indiana. We live in the country, not within city limits. Our dog was half on the road and half on our property. A lady was speeding down our road and drug the dog over 100 feet, did not stop. Went down the road about 1/2 or so and made a police report once she noticed her car was... View More
I got insurance pre-approval for the procedure and spoke with the scheduler to ensure that everything was covered so there were no surprises (my exact words). Afterward - the Anesthesiologist balance billed me for the procedure as they said they were out of network. Insurance paid them based upon... View More
I would suggest to the facility that arranged for the pre cert that if they have an out of network person for anesthesiology then it is up to them to tell you, and tell the anesthesiologist as he didn't let you know he was out of network you are not paying.
I had a problem that my car had a very loud noise when driving. I went and asked for the dealer to test drive and they told me it was just because the tires were worn out and that they inspected the wheels and saw nothing wrong. I took it to the shop and it was the bearing which was getting... View More
