The money was sent via western union but charged to my debit card I was planning on contacting my bank and having them reverse the charges I just want my 460.00$ back as quickly and as relatively painless as possible I have sent the person an ultimatum via email saying that at 9:01 this morning if I have not heard from them that I would be taking action with my financial institution on getting the charges reversed and looking into fraud charges against them am I taking the proper steps is there more you would recommend?
I'd rather just go stake out the address I sent it to and confront the them in person than involve multiple organizations.. small claims court also sounds like a hassle... If I were to try and take them to small claims court how do I go about it? what if they don't appear? will I have to show up multiple times to get it resolved if they keep blowing off the court date?
does the whole lawyer client privilege exist between me and you?
So if I wanted to sue this person for fraud and I mean really take them to the cleaners like get them shut down and put away what steps should I take?
I dont care about getting any more money back than what I am out but I do want these people prosecuted by the authorities for fraud and to get them shut down where should I go to get that done
so if it was an escort service could there be any repercussions on me?
whats illegal about hiring a date for companionship?
the fact of the matter would be that they were to provide me with a date and they didn't though so how would i not be entitled a refund on my purchase?
