Consumer Protection Law Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
HI I hope to help you with your question today. First thing you should do is contact EBAY. They have great customer service and are very helpful. Second, a contract can be enforced in either jurisdiction unless your contract specifically states otherwise. Of course it would be easier for you to file suit in Illinois but you do need to have the other party served with the papers in their state. You may also try a certified letter to the business demanding relief, such as your money back. Keep a copy of this letter and the return receipt card so you can use it if you have to file a lawsuit. Also, did you take photographs of the vehicle as it was delivered?
If you have additional questions, please let me know. I am happy to help. Otherwise please rate my answer as it is the only way I get paid for my work.
I see that you did take photographs. Be sure to keep track of any and all correspondence you have with the dealership
