Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
HelloThis is Samuel. I am sorry to hear of this situation and I hope you are feeling better. You are correct, if there are no refunds it should have been noted on the website and any other documents you might have signed. I suggest, your recourse is to sue her in small claims court for the full amount you paid.
To sue in small claims you can get the forms from the clerk of the court. But you need to sue in the county where she conducts business. If you can show that she has conducted business in your county before you, you can sue in your county. The clerk can give you the forms and you can file them without the help of a local attorney.
And the reason you are correct on having knowledge that there are no refunds is because the state leaves refund policy entirely up to the merchant. However, if there is a no refund policy it should be stated and told to the consumer.
