I leased a Tesla July 2nd. I tried to utilize their "happiness guarantee" to return it within the first 2 weeks based on false claims about its performance. They agreed to take the car back but refused to return and of the roughly $7000 I had put down. August 1st I was informed the bank refused the financing due to errors on the lease agreement and was asked to sign a new one. I refused as I am still planning to return the car. I have not heard from them in three weeks to arrange the return of the car and return of my money. What are my options?

I'm a contractor & my general liability just due to a

I'm a contractor & my general liability just doubled due to a construction defect lawsuit that just settled after 3 years of litigation. I shopped around for a better premium price & I found one & signed up, but just this morning when I checked my email another agent came in with a much better premium & with the same high quality "A" rated company. My question is does the 3 day right to cancel also apply with regard to insurance matters? Please advise.

I live in Massachusetts. I was scammed by a painter who is now suing me in small claims court ( Clinton District). I have filed Dept. Consumer Protection Complaints against painter and partner (sub?). The sub took apart and took 1/2 of a multi-piece swing set and left the other half. I would like to counter sue for damages to house and paint and for the remainder of swing set to be removed. My question is can I sue for the swing set either as part of a counter suit or separately and can I counter sue in a different district ( Concord)?

A small business (1person LLC) said he will report me to

A small business (1person LLC) said he will report me to collections because I have asked for an accurate invoice from him and not paid the inaccurate one after 24 days. He has lied about the amount of time on our property working (which we have security video proof of) and has now said he also will charge for travel to and from our home which he never mentioned before. He did light yard work, there is no contract. He has called and text me numerous times. I have text him to send a correct invoice and we are happy to pay. He has yelled at me via phone and left a few messages, one very rude. What can I do? I have excellent credit, have never had collection involvement and this guy is a repeat convicted felon for theft and drugs. I really don't want this unethical person to affect my credit. Thank you!

I purchased a retreat in Peru. 12 days before I was to leave

I purchased a retreat in Peru. 12 days before I was to leave I received a video blog update stating that the clinician that was going to be conducting the retreat was no longer and it was going to be moved to a different location which was still undisclosed. Hence, this was no longer anywhere near what I had originally purchased.I emailed the retreat company with no answer upon refunding me. I then did more research on this company and discover that they have been scamming people And holding these retreats illegally there are several accredited articles as well as video blogs some former employees stating as such. As well as a Facebook support group for people who have been scammed by them. I then email the company back because I was not getting any phone calls returned stating what I had found and that if I did not receive any correspondence I would contact an attorney. Then I did receive an email back sitting I would be refunded fully in 5 to 10 business days yesterday was the 10th day. I sent an email that morning telling him I would be expecting the money at the end of the day otherwise I would have to pursue this further and I didn't receive an email back . So that I had sent another email upon which the owner once again did tell me that they would refund me but it was going to take another 5 to 10 business days and if I could be patient. Basically saying they didn't have the money and if I were to go into dispute I wouldn't get my money back because of the disclaimer of canceling a retreat with in the allotted amount of time. However, I feel this is a breach of their contracts me because this is a completely different trip not the one that I had originally paid for. it's like going to a car dealership and purchasing a Chevy and they pull up with the Ford and say here you go. I have not responded to their email asking me to wait and basically politely threatening me that if I take legal action it will not go in my favor. Because of all of this At this time I am looking not only for reimbursement but possibly considering suing for emotional damages because this is a retreat that I needed for my own personal well-being which is now being denied to me. I'm not sure how I should respond to their threatening email as well as what type of an attorney I should contact to rectify the situation for me because it's clear that this will not rectify itself on its own. The very least I just want my money back. I am located near Boston Massachusetts and appreciate any helpful information that can be provided in this process or pointed to an attorney that can help me.

I got an email from amazon stating that I have ordered

I got an email from amazon stating that I have ordered enough items to qualify for a free item of my choice. I clicked on one of the items (Testosterone booster) without the intent of buying it. I just wanted to get more information about the product. I clicked on the item and it automatically sent it to me. About a month later I received the item in the mail. About two months after that I had received another package of the same item, so I thought they had just messed up, so I didn't think anything of it. Months keep going by and they had kept sending me the bottles of testosterone boosters. I didn't even want them anymore because I know that you have to have low testosterone for them to actually be effective. I am a healthy 18 year old male, I don't need them, so I got rid of them. Turns out they were charging my Moms credit card every time. The bill is around 600 dollars. What should I do?
