My father has an elderly friend that we believe is being manipulated by foreigners for money in a promise for a relationship. He might have spent tens of thousands if not hundreds to help a female make it to America for a relationship. This female seems to have multiple medical or other problems... Read more »
This is a common scam and is considered elder financial abuse, most likely. You may call local law enforcement or adult protective services to report your concerns. You can also alert your father's friend's bank to be on the lookout for suspicious, large transactions. If your father's friend is...Read more »
I had him replace widows, which started out wrong. He measured one of the windows completely wrong and we didn't discover it until they went to put it in and it didn't fit. Custom ordered mind you. He needed to fix that problem which is still incomplete from March 2019. I then, decided to let him... Read more »
You need to review everything in detail with a local attorney. Depending upon the size/dollar amount of the job, contractors are usually required to put their bids in writing and give you written notice of your rights as a homeowner and notice that if you pay the general contractor but he fails to...Read more »
In return if I helped her she would pay me 20% of her late husbands funds which is over 2.6 million £ or over $3 million usd. She had her attorney contact me and explained the situation and sent me legal documents and bank statement. Well 3 years later and over $13,000 usd which I've paid in... Read more »
I hope your bank is able to assist you here. As a general matter, exercise caution with offers from parties you do not know who speak of sums of several million dollars, and that involve princes, heiresses, or other exotic beneficiaries. They often involve inquiries about your sensitive banking...Read more »
I considered attending a state university and then never followed through. I had made an email in their system and got no further. They later contacted me via this email and said that I owed them $5,700 for a room and board that I never reserved. They only have this email and my name and they do... Read more »
If they know your name they can easily find out everything else they need to sue you; and they might, do that because of the large amount involved. Accordingly, I do not advise you to start ignoring them now. Your decision to appeal the fine has already pushed them far enough to continue with the...Read more »
Assuming there is no Judgment against you that is trying to be collected upon, you may well have a 6 year statute of limitations, running from your last partial payment or last legitimate charge on your bill. IF it truly is past the statute of limitations, and you are being harassed by a...Read more »
The unit contained not only the manuscripts/reels/files/notes/art for most of the films they have ever produced, but I have over 20,000 personal family photos dating back to the 1920's, and original artwork of a locally famous painter related to the films studio owner.
The items are now your personal property. Keep in mind you only have the property rights, so some items would have intellectual property rights to them (for instance copyright on the manuscript) so you just own that copy, not the rights to the films.
The creditor appeared out of no where after 8 years with out any collection effort. Added in compounded interest and is in the process of trying to foreclose on my property. He received a decision that said he could sale my portion.
How do I dispute this? I never got served papers, but when I called them they said someone answered the door and said they were me, I work during the day so I know for a fact I didn't receive any papers. So the person who "served papers" lied, cause I never got them. Do I have a legal case?
Likely not - if you have some adequate grounds to dispute the validity of the Writ or the amounts being garnished, then you have a time frame to oppose it in court. If you haven't filed within that time frame and the Judge believes you were not timely served with the Writ, he/she might extend your...Read more »
Depending on the declaration, bylaws and rules of the UOA, the insurance company may be right. But there is also the possibility that you might recover against the guest, or even against the owner on the theory that the owner was negligent in entrusting the unit to this particular guest (something...Read more »

While there is no law which clearly concerns mold exposure in rental buildings, the landlord is responsible with providing tenants with adequate living conditions under the warranty of habitability, which includes taking care of mold contamination. You should not have to pay for having this issue...Read more »
This is a really bad idea. Car lenders will go for a fast sale which is often below what you owe on the car then they will sue you for the balance you still owe. If there is anyway you can sell the car and pay off the loan even if you just break even, that would be the better way to go. If you...Read more »

Most of these scam operations, and they are scams, are based outside the United States. So while these scams undoubtedly violate more than one US Law, actually tracking down the criminals and arresting them is next to impossible.
Here is a website called "scam busters" that you should...Read more »
I went in to donate and later received a Facebook message from an employee asking me out and telling me his boss would kill him when he knew. I feel totally violated and tried to be polite as I plan to frequent this center and need the money. What are my rights here? Can I sue for privacy... Read more »
You need to get help to change your Facebook Settings to make sure that your personal information is not visible to people you don't know. I am not an expert on privacy laws so whether or not you have a lawsuit I can't tell you. Generally speaking you need to prove economic damages to have a...Read more »
No, you would still need to go through all the statutory requirements, obtain a court Order, etc. Any provisions to the contrary in a lease or other agreement would simply be unenforceable at best and possibily render the landlord liable for damages if he/she knowingly put unlawful provisions in...Read more »
And has only done 6months work on it and has been paid $5500 and my dad recently past away and this guys wont give my dads truck back. What can i do about this. The truck is not his and hes being real rude since my dad has dies and my mom had all info and stuff for that truck
If this fellow is still owed money for work he has performed on the truck, then he has a mechanic's lien on the truck and can keep it as collateral until he is paid in full. Then he has to release it, but technically only to the Personal Representative or Claiming Affiant of your father's estate -...Read more »
Talk to your bank and do damage control. Talk to your lender and find out why they didn't what they did. I would stop autopay so this can't happen anymore if that is an option. Talk to anyone that you needed to pay and can't and explain the situation. Most creditors are nice if you ask nicely...Read more »
I was told collection would be evaluated (each piece as I had over 9,000) graded, and put to auction. This was not the case. They were lazy and sold by collection by geographical area in 8 different lots. Sold for less than 4k. Was told would fetch up to 10-12k. They misrepresented the process... Read more »
There is probably some type of agreement you signed, either a paper agreement or an online agreement. You will need to take this agreement and copies of all documents showing what Heritage promised they would do in terms of selling your collection and go to an attorney to get your case evaluated....Read more »
Probably not - the life insurance was paid to you pursuant to a contract your sister had with the life insurance company. However since the proceeds were never actually payable to your sister while she was alive and the policy I assume named you as her beneficiary, and did not say it was payble to...Read more »
There is no survivorship on the title. I am not the executor of her estate. There was only one executor. She died in 2012 and this car was not part of her will/estate. The donation company tells me all I need is to give them a notarized inheritance affidavit and have a death certificate, but DMV... Read more »
You should give the car title with your signature on it, your grandmother's death certificate, and the DMV affidavit of heirship to the company you want to donate the car to. The affidavit of heirship should be signed by the beneficiary of your grandmother's estate. You can get the DMV affidavit...Read more »
