Customer Question

JA: Hello. What is your issue regarding?
Customer: Hello
JA: Hi. How can we help?
Customer: I have an issue with one organization, that during the summer was organizing summer camps for kids. I've paid full amount but on the second day of the camp my son got sick and they asked me to pick him up. I did. He had a sudden spike of fever. I waited for 24 hours during which my son was healthy and fever did return. So i brought him back to the camp as i would do at school. They refused to take him back but promised to refund the money. I waited until yesterday i had a chance to talk to the owner about my refund. She said she won't do it, and that it was my fault that i brought a sick child to the camp. She was very aggressive and rude. I don't know if I have a "case".
JA: What state is this in? And just to clarify, when was the purchase made?
Customer: fever didn't return
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: Not yet.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: We are in CA I don't remember the day of purchase but i can look it up.

I am very sorry. I posted to this by accident. I'm going to opt out and someone else will take it over.

Hi, I'm Stacy. Who made the promise to refund money? Was this verbal? If the camp refuses to return the money, you could file suit to recover the fees since they made a promise to refund. However, litigation is expense and lengthy. An option many people have had success with, at least in my state, is by contacting the Attorney General's office. They often act as an intermediary in consumer issues. I personally used them in my state for an issue regarding a refund that did not arrive as promised. They worked with me and the other company to reach a resolution. I had my refund within 2-3 days.

If you'd like to file suit, and can provide me with your county in CA, I can try to direct you to the appropriate forms. However, you need to ultimately decide if the amount owed is worth a lawsuit after factoring in filing fees and your time.

I hope this answers your question. If so, please kindly leave a positive rating. This is how Just Answer compensates experts for their time. Thank you. You can still ask followup questions after a rating.

I apologize, I was assisting another customer. Give me a few moments.

I apologize for my delay. I had to step away to pick up my children and take them to gymnastics class. I have located this guide which walks you through the small claims process. The most important part of this is the link to the forms. I found them to be relatively self explanatory to where someone with little legal background could easily complete them and get things filed. However, if you find yourself over your head, you may seek the assistance of a local attorney.

I hope this answers your question. If you've found my information helpful, please kindly leave a positive rating. This is the only way experts are compensated on Just Answer. You can still ask followup questions, too, if needed.
