We had a contract between the two of us. Is this legal?JA: What state is this in? And when did the issue begin?Customer: Washington state. I paid for the cat on December 14. I kept asking her when she was shipping her out, she kept making excuses, then she said she was moving to Arizona and she would ship the cat out after a few weeks when she got settled in and was boarding it in a boarding facality. I told her I did not want this and wanted my can now. She said no because it was impossible. I told her to give me my moeny (2500.) back. She said NO, we have a contract no money refunds. So I went to my credit card company, told them, they reimbursed my money and it is now in litigation. She said she is suing me for breech of contract and with all the lawyer fees. The transaction on the credit card is between myself and a auto mechanic ? company.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Just with the credit card company.

I have an ongoing "case" with America Express Credit Card

I have an ongoing "case" with America Express Credit Card department about a misplaced payment. It is dragging from the end of September. I called their Support 8 times already and they still can't resolve the issue. Basically I get merry go-around and promise to resolve it within 48/72 hours. I am royally pissed off at the moment and want to expose AMEX for a terrible customer service. Can I sue them? Note, I do not care about money (except my 3000 they have since September). Itbecame a matter of principle for me. Do this case have a merit?JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: CAJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: No. I just called.
