I found a on-line business opportunity and was contacted by

I found a on-line business opportunity and was contacted by the company "My Business Ventures". Through conversations I wound up deciding that they were legit so I invested with them through an on-line contract. Once paid I had three days to rescind. However, it took several days for me to receive a "final" product which was an on-line retail store. Once I had access to the store (not "launched" (or publicly accessible) at this point) I discovered that the items in my store (which they were to provide) were priced too high (some as much as 60% higher than other stores such as Lowes, Sears, Amazon, Walmart and Home Depot) and although I would have the latitude to change prices, there were thousands of items I would have had to research and adjust pricing. I felt somewhat betrayed and I then sent a registered letter to them asking the company to close my account and return my investment. I returned their document package without opening it. Since then (about three weeks ago) I have been charged another fee from them on my credit card which I expect is a monthly charge with no communication by way of email or regular mail. They did attempt to contact me via phone but I would not answer because I was told not to by some one who was trying to help me get my money returned. The same day I sent the registered letter, I called my credit card company and told them I wanted to contest the charge. They told me I would have to wait for at least 15 days to give them opportunity to refund the money to my account. The time has passed and there has not been a refund. Do I have any recourse in this case?JA: What state is this in? And just to clarify, when was the purchase made?Customer: Virginia. Looking for the document so I can provide the correct dateJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Nothing beyond what I have already told you.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Contract was signed on Jan 16, 2017

Is it illegal to tell a customer representative at Verizon

Is it illegal to tell a customer representative at Verizon you're an attorney.. Obviously I made a horrible mistake in saying this, but I caught them in a case of false advertising and I stupidly said it out of frustration due to their refusal to assist me further. However they did blatantly admit to the false advertising, which I have in writing. I did not say I am licensed or anything of that nature.

Florida. HOA. I am in a deed restricted with county roads and rights of way. We have an owner who does not like cars parking on the grassy area next to the sidewalk, and wants to take control of them and prohibit cars from parking anywhere except their driveways. The roads, sidewalks, and all are county property. Can the association get the county to deed over ownership, and if so, can the association then have the cars towed?
