Ask a Canada Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello! My name is***** you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.
I am a lawyer in Canada.
There are two questions on this post.
Which one would you like for me to answer here? I can only answer one. I can answer the second question if you start a new post for that.
What province are you in please?How much did you pay her?
Did you get a chance to read my questions to you? I cannot answer you in a meaningful way until I gather the appropriate information. There is no charge for us going up and back of course.
I am sorry to hear that.
I suggest that you send her a letter by Registered Mail. Tell her that you now realize that you are a victim of a scam. She failed to provide you what she said she was providing but in fact lied to. She also did not donate the money to charity and you are certain she did not burn it.
Give her a deadline for paying you and tell her that fails to comply you will commence legal proceedings and then be seeking interest and your costs.
You can sue her in Small Claims Court and can self-represent. If it gets that far and you find you need some help as you go through the process you can always post on this site again and I can assist you further.
Does that help as a starting point?
Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
You can send her a letter and call her whatever name you use so long as she gets it.
To be able to sue her you will need her name and then you may need to retain a private investigator to find out her real name.
