He was a resident of South Carolina but his bank accounts were at a large National Bank office in California. My wife in South Carolina was the sole heir with ownership of the accounts and in July 2022 she received a call from an individual in New York purporting to be with the National Bank... View More
You say that your wife spoke to a National Bank in New York. Then you say that the fraud was perpetrated by someone in Louisiana. I think that you need an attorney to handle this in New York. I don't know the amount of the fraud, but if it is over $25,000 then the case would be brought in the...View More
I put a down payment on a vehicle and signed the paperwork but the car dealership created a fake driver’s license for me to get licensing which is what has made me not want the vehicle after concentration he kept telling me it’s legal and I wouldn’t get into trouble which is the only reason I...

My initial answer is yes, you should get your money back. Even though you signed the contract, you never took possession of the vehicle. The reason should not be an issue. You never took delivery of the vehicle so one of the conditions to make the contract never occurred.
The car dealership advertises that they do a 125-point inspection and the issues that were found total up to almost $2,000.

How can I challenge the judgement I was never given notice for? I was never served any noticed from the creditor or received any mail. Just a judgement against me that was left on my mother's property taped to her door.
Immediately hire a competent SC attorney to file a Motion to Set Aside the Judgment for lack of Due Process, Untimely Claim Against the Estate, Rule 60, etc. in the Court that rendered the Judgment. Also notify your Surety if there is one, and check the Estate File at the Court carefully.
A South Carolina attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for two weeks. It could be a difficult matter to pursue, where it looks like it would be your word against theirs. If there was some sort of surveillance monitor or witness, that might change things. Good luck
A complaint can be filed in magistrate court as long as the amount is less than $7,500.00 and present this issue to a magistrate to resolve. It would probably be a good idea to speak with an attorney in your area to see if they might be able to help you with this. In some cases attorneys will take...View More
My friend’s neighbor in the apartment under her calls the cops on her probably once a month for having her TV too loud. I have been in her apartment when it happened.
