Dear Customer, thank you for using our service. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I would like to assist you today.
If the company has told you one thing (that was "material" or important to the contract) that they knew was false, or reasonably should have known was false at the time that you entered into the purchase agreement, that has caused you a financial loss, that is fraud. You can either void the contract (get your money back) or you can pursue them for money damages in court for breach of contract and fraud.
Given the fact that they are conducting business through the internet, they have opened themselves to jurisdiction in your state (Oklahoma) and you can sue them there if they do not acknowledge these breaches in contract and false statements, and make this matter right for you.
thank you.. i think you get close to my answer ...
if i want to sue them.. how do i go about that because I actually want to sue them for money damages.. but the contract was not given send to me not until I made the full payment, Please advice me on how to go about suing them for money damage..
Here is a link to the Oklahoma Small Courts case (this will get you cash damages up to $7,500, above this you will have to sue in general civil case which usually means you should consider hiring an attorney), http://oklaw.org/resource/small-claims-court This has the basic considerations for how to go about filing a lawsuit (even a general case follows these same basic steps, but the procedure is more complex and the rules are much more strict).
as the money involve is more than 7,500 .. am I not going to loose more money than what they took from me and time and the money am going to pay they lawyer..?
This is entirely a strategy decision on your part (I can only offer the options available to you). But it is possible to limit your civil lawsuit to the actual damages for dealing with the title issues/storage fees/etc. associated with their wrongdoing - but again, I do not know if this is reasonable or possible, but again it is a way to get the claim below the jurisdictional limit for small claims. Your other option is to go ahead and sue in general civil court for the full amount. (Remember, you can also negotiate for settlement at any time during litigation which gives you more options throughout the litigation process regardless as to which court you are suing in).
