Why on earth do you think that your bank--that had nothing to do with your decision to get scammed--should have to indemnify you for your loss? Can you imagine what would happen if EVERYONE who gets scammed by some thief over the Internet could just asak their bank for the money? Where would the...Read more »

I went to a hotel, to get a room that costs $60 per night. The hotel has a policy that there is only 15 minutes within paying to either change rooms, or ask for a refund, and makes people sign a paper stating this, and does not let people look at the rooms first before deciding to pay. In my case,... Read more »
Wow. It's too bad you did not anticipate any problem when this (very cheap) hotel made you sign an agreement not to complain about their cheap rooms unless you do it immediately. In any event, there is nothing you can do to force your bank to give you the $60 that the hotel kept. Why not...Read more »

I have an old debt with a landlord in Ohio from 2014. A judgement was issued in Ohio in2015. I completely forgot about, as I had zero communication with the debtor in the past 3 years. Now they got a bank levy and I have til May 1, 2019 to respond to a notice for a hearing or to claim why I... Read more »
This would be an easy problem to solve if it did not involve two separate states. If the bank levy was filed in the state of North Carolina you should hire a NC lawyer to help you. If the action was filed in Ohio, you need an Ohio lawyer. Do not try to defend against this levy without a lawyer.
There is a very common belief that there is a difference between an "authorized user" of a personal bank account and a "co-owner" of a personal bank account. While there are several different kinds of bank accounts, access to each type of bank account is either defined in the...Read more »
It depends on the transaction and how it is structured. Generally you can't avoid debts by transferring property and assets to insiders, particularly for no payment.
