Welcome! My goal is to do my very best to understand your situation and to provide a full and complete answer for you.
Good morning. You do have some recourse....what you want to do is raise the stakes on them to make it cheaper to pay you voluntarily than to not. A person in your position would want to send them a certified, return receipt requested letterdemanding that they refund your money in total within a short specified period of time;and inform them that if such demand is not timely complied with, there will beno choice but to file a suit against them for damages. The letter would want tomake sure to specifically mention that this claim will be filed not only as abreach of contract case, but also as a deceptive trade practice action, whichwill entitle one to not only to actual damages, but also an additional amountequal to 3 times that as punitive damages. That generally provides all theincentive necessary to comply with your demands; but, if it does not, a suit should befiled.
