I do not want to threaten anyone, but I'm out $1,200 right now.
What is considered a certified letter? Does it have to be notarized?
Okay. As far as making threats, it's not something that I want to do, but what if he just says no to my request for a refund or the books?
Would the fact that I sent the money from my state through Western Union have any affect on jurisdiction?
So that's not the same as making a threat?
He is actually the one who told me he's not allowed to sell books.
Thanks for the advice. The botXXXXX XXXXXne is that I do not want to involve anyone other than the two of us, but he's ignoring my phone calls and I have not received about $1,200 worth of goods that he has agreed to send me. I will go ahead and send the letter, what kind of tone and and phrasing should I use in the letter?
or would you recommend trying to drop hints before sending the letter?
And at the end of the 15 days I will take legal action?
Okay I guess that is it. One last question though - should I go ahead and let him know that I am sending the letter or should I give him more time and mention something about how I'd hate for someone to find out that he's selling his books against the department head's orders? Keep in mind I've gotten zero feedback for two full days now and I have a feeling that would change with either of these actions.
Excellent Service by the way.
So would it be better to just go straight to the legal steps by sending the letter or should I give that more time? Not more time to receive the books, those should have arrived earlier this week, but more time for him to get back with me, even though I know he's ignoring my calls and texts?
So if it gets to the point of needing to send a letter, just send it without saying anything about it?
And what would you recommend doing between now and Monday?
he is kind of screwy, but there's no reason why he can't just let me know that
anyways, thanks for your help and have a great night!
I will definitely do that.
