Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
I blieve so, the return address was from Florida. Im trying to figure out how to get my money back and if/where to file a police report?
I wish I did, but I made a bank transfer. Is there some kind of consumer protection law? I live in Switzerland making it a bit more complicated but I'm certaionly not going to let this guy off the hook
Thank yo so much!
I dont live in Florida and I believe I would have to go to court myself with a small claims suit. Which route has a better chance of winning and what would (roughly) be the cost of the lawyer?
If it costs 2200USD in fees - I wouldnt have to do the work I can still get 5k. Also if I go with a lawyer, will the other person also have to pay a lawyer? If he represents himself will he have a smaller chance of winning?
Im trying to figure out which route to go. Even if I dont get much money I want to make his life hell and costly (if thats all I can do)
Also what instruments are in place to get the money back if I win the lawsuit? Small claims vs with a lawyer?
So i have 3 options right:
Should I propose these 3 options to the seller ?
Thank you very much!!
Another thought - if I go with a lawyer, what are the steps and things needed from the other guy? What is his incentive to want to settle?
I fell that with a small claims suit he will just not take it serious. If a lawyer gets inovled how will this impact his day-to-day life?
Thanks, never been inovlved in any kind of legal issue so its all new to me. Im pretty sure he scammed me (not UPS) so i really want to make his life hell for being dishonest (probably wont see much money out of it)
