I have full coverage on my car. We had a massive blizzard in

I have full coverage on my car. We had a massive blizzard in Colorado in March which closed down everything. It was huge. Where the car sits is under a huge tree. The wet heavy snow froze and fell from the tree causing hail type damage to the vehicle. Insurance said it didn't look like hail damage and put an investigator on the case. The investigator took pictures and talked to me and then my roommate. My roommate took a video of the frozen snow from tree falling the day that it happened and once we noticed it and the damage was done saw it as it was tapering off. The investigator talked to roommate who described what he saw and gave them the video he had. The investigator told roommate that he spoke with previous owner and verified that there was no previous hail damage. He stated that talking to him helped put things into perspective and helped the case. After weeks of no response they stated that it was not covered because the previous owner stated that there was hail damage. His own recording of the conversation has him saying that he spoke with her and there was no previous damage. Pretty sure I have pictures of vehicle before the damage as well but it shouldn't matter. The investigator said one thing and I have a witness. I requested something in writing stating exactly why it is not covered and so far they have not done so because they know that they are caught in a lie. What are my options here? How do I contact the previous owner? Is there a way to do this? How do I get something from the dealer I am buying it from stating the condition it was in when received? I know they check them in and take pictures of any damage present if there is any. They just don't want to pay it out because there was a significant amount of damage. I need to do something here. This is crazy and criminal.

I purchase a car in Illinois from a Dealer Online. The

I purchase a car in Illinois from a Dealer Online. The vehicle was advertised as a 1968 Pontiac GTO with a 400 CID Engine. Purchases @ $21900 (of which $500 was non-refundable) + $950 for shipping. The car arrive in at our home in Connecticut 1 week later. The engine in the vehicle was not a 400 CID but instead a 350 CID. The value of that car with that engine is closer to $15000 as a replacement USED 400 engine would be at least $5000 not including labor. Reported the issue to the dealer the the next morning after receiving the car after hours. After a week of stalling asking him to either compensate or refund our money minus fees - they finally replied with an offer to "buy" the car back for only $15000. Do I have a case to sue for either loss of value, miss advertising so that I can return - can I include legal fees in any suit? I assume I have to find a lawyer in Illinois and use the Illinois court system as well.

Auto work performed at national tire chain, I will call (.

Auto work performed at national tire chain, I will call (Biz. A) in NJ. Oil change / thermostat housing / coolant flush & replace. Next oil change auto was taken to a national auto maintenance center (Biz B) for oil change. This service center would not do the oil change for fear of breaking off the entire filter system. Filter system cap had been over tightened & the whole system wanted to turn @ the block. We were told to take it to the auto dealer for safety sake. Had a conversation with (Biz A) but auto was taken to auto dealer (Biz C). Later coolant light came on, took car to (Biz C). Was told that the radiator had 2 leaks in it & a part at the bottom of radiator had been broken. (Biz C) is placing in writing that (Biz A) could not have finished the work without knowing they had cause the problem. (Biz C) are taking photos on our behalf & giving back the broken parts, if possible. They are putting it into writing. Cost out of pocket about $3000.plus. (Biz A) has been contacted about the oil change filter system, but was NOT contacted concerning coolant flush and problems now. This is all within 4 months. Do I need to contact (Biz A) of their poor workmanship that has been discovered & repairs done at (Biz C)? Will this make it hard to prove the case. Would it be advisable to just file a civil without an layer? Part of this work was paid for by my daughter living in PA, the rest has been paid by me. All work has been performed in NJ.

I need to know the best way to report this scam and to seek

Hello,I need to know the best way to report this scam and to seek to get my money back. Should I go to the police? The district attorney in California where the scam company is based from?I think I have been the victim of a scam involving my amazon affiliate store. When I set up the store last summer 2015, I paid a $499 website set up fee to a company that had reached out to me about becoming an amazon affiliate. About 3 months later in November, I got a call from Great Western Tax and Accounting, LLC. I spoke to someone for about 2 hours. He told me that I needed to get an LLC and pay for online marketing to drive traffic to the site in order to succeed with the amazon store. I paid $3250 for the llc and this online marketing, and was also told I would be helped to apply for a business line of credit for the amazon store. The line of credit would support the marketing expenses and I could pay it off every month with the earnings from the store.This process was supposed to take 60 days. I have been calling these people since January 2016 and have gotten the run around regarding the reason for the delays. In March I was told to close my personal credit card account so that they could apply for a business line of credit for me? I have to admit that I was not sure of the reason for this . I told them that I still had not received the LLC filling documents so how could we apply for a business line of credit. They assured me that the LLC was in process. Needless to say it's almost June and I don't have an LLC or a business line of credit. I also don't believe they ever did any marketing for my amazon store, as I have earned $0 from this site as of today. My accountant who did my taxes told me that an LLC in NY costs $800. He also told me I dont need an llc for an amazon store as Amazon is the one handling the orders, shipping, etc so there is no risk to me ever being sued, that would warrant an llc being needed.

Called the dealer and took my car back, he the dealer said oh why don't I have my glass man look at it. He will be Here on the following Thursday. I took the vehicle back and the glassman said oh that's nothing it has already been repaired it should not run any more. Well my question is shouldn't the dealer disclose that the windshield was cracked before I purchased it? Because I said to the glassman I would not have purchased this vehicle has I known there was a crack
