Dear Attorney Eli:
I notice that you refer to the instruments mentioned in my problem as being a "CHECK". (Checks being Issued by a Bank)
The item under discussion is a Promissory Note, or a Sight Draft or a Bill of Exchange and is not issued by a Bank. (My instrments are Issued by me)
The subject matter has nothing to do with a check. PLEASE TAKE NOTICE.
This is the major difference that has other people failing or refusing to obey the clear and conspicuous mandates of the Uniform Commercial Code, Commercial Paper.
Please carefully re-read my Statement of Facts and you will see that all through the narrative I am talking not about checks, but about delayed payment instruments, why they were created and how the Vendors, Banks and Law officers have perverted the intent and express language of the UCC, CP to my injury and detriment.
I regret that I did not make myself
more clear in writing the problem.
If you are too busy to dig into the heart and soul of the UCC, CP, then, perhaps we both are not on the same page.
I need and will pay for time and advice ONLY for information [certain words] on the face of the instruments; How best to protect myself from the fumbling and illegal acts or omissions of others who have caused me large sums of Attorney fees, loss of liberty and illegal detention.
The UCC,CP, deals with Civil-Commercial laws with which I am acquainted more than casually. So far, I have not found the correct combination of words to stop others from
acts or omimssions that have caused me hurt, harm and danger.
I have contacted the local Attorneys in my city and find that they are immersed in Criminal, Probate, Bankruptcy, Real estate and a whole series of specialities, except the Uniform Commercial Code.Commercial Paper.
When I talk to them, they seem bewildered or have forgotten what they learned in Law School 101. This is why I am using the Internet.
I surely hope that you and I can get this thing together. I remain
With all due respect,
I am glad that we are now talking about delayed payment instruments.
My target and hazardous trips were dedicated to creating a [paper] credit card that will punch a big hole in the Bank's sky-high interest rates, penalties, and other rip offs.
With the economy in the dumps I feel confident that many people will now leap at the chance to Buy Now and Pay Later with an Interest Free instrument.
I will have a Web site set up and offer on the Internet the AMAZING INTEREST-FREE (Paper Credit Card)!
Once you produce the Magic Words so that me (first) and others (who follow) will avoid the legal probems that I have faced in the past.
Any and all Merchants will be glad to be released from the slavery of the Plastic Credit Cards that cost them far more than they would voluntarily contribute as Juice to the Banks' Silent Robbers.
I frequently talk to the local merchants and confidentially they often gripe about the fees they have to pay to the Banks, just for the so-called privilege of a Merchant's Account.
Plenty of them give me a discount on goods or services when I pay cash.
OK, you now see and understand from where I am coming and the direction to which I am heading.
Let' hop to it and do it. OK?
