1- Will your answer stay online or I should paste-up the whole thing ?
2- It seems difficult for me to terminate my attorney because I have had hard time to find him and there is a time limitation for claiming to the bankruptcy court. A settlement between Dalbey and FTC is in process to be completed. We are about to know what are the possibilities for recovery.
Can I use your answer to argue with my attorney ?
A lawsuit has been launched on May 2011 by US authorities in regards XXXXX XXXXX Dalbey Education Institute. I signed in to Dalbey Institute on Feb. 2008 and most of my expensive fees are on my 2008 credit card invoice statements. I also have fees on 2009 and 2010. Because of the amounts of money that are involved, I think I am OK with the timeliness concern.
And you, what do you think ?
Thank you Paul for your support and your professional answers.
Before ending : What does SOL mean ?
GOOD AFTERNOON PAUL,The last time I spoke to you, you explained the Statutes of Limitations regulations. Therefore, I have another question.The actual loss is $26,000.00 USDMy attorney appreciates my explanations in regards to SOL and all relevant evidences I disclosed to him to help him writing his recommendations in regards to the recovery. I do not know yet what is going the amount of money the Debtor (Dalbey Education Institute) will allow me for recovery.The only thing I know is that I have the CLAIM FORMS under my nose ready to be filled with my attorney. The CLAIM FORMS is the B10 Form. The Debtor has filed for bankruptcy. Legal procedures allow all harmed consumers to be recovered, each case is a unique and singular case. I have a lot of losses. Such money put on credit cards with no income generated as expected. you can imagine how harmful is the Consumer Fraud.To the best of your knowledge, what could be the amount allowed for recovery ? Can attorney fees be charged to the Debtor to help my financial restoration ? To me, it would be fairplay if I could receive $18 000.00. I wasted a lot of money. The best thing would be the whole $26000.00 for me and attorney fees charged to the DEI (Dalbey Education Institute) but I should not expect too much in such circumstances.According to you, what could be the amount of money allowed for recovery ?I have secured and non secured loans to pay off lenders, what would the law say for recovery ?Thank you PaulStéphane
