If you are alleging a breach of contract, then you need to file lawsuit against the party that you are alleging breached the contract. You can file a Small Claim for return of the money that you paid to get services under this contract. The company that sold this contract to you needs to be made to understand that the failure of the company to resolve this dispute, to get the check reissued for the correct amount would be held against the company. Therefore, you should make a formal written demand to the warranty company for the correct reimbursement amount. Then if the company ignores you, you can then proceed with your lawsuit.
You can obtain Small Claims forms at your local Courthouse in the Clerk's office.
