If a car dealership in MA sell a car without being in

Hi, if a car dealership in MA sell a car without being in position of its Title at that time, committing a crime? This is the scenario: customer from out of state buys a car from this dealership in Boston, Ma. Customer traded his car and took the car home the same day unregistered. Transferred plates. The dealer then finds out title is not available at their floor plan bank. They bought the car from an auction that announced car comes without title. Dealer then finds out the dealership that sold the car to auction were waiting for the title to come from customer's bank (customer who sold or traded the car to the dealership). The customer that bought the car now, waits for 2-3 months to get the title while being in position of the car. At all this time, dealership could not give the customer a definite time of when title will be arriving. This dealership has sold many cars without the title at their position in that moment. Many of their sales are trade in cars that they sell but still waiting for title to come from person who traded it prior.

I ordered online Trial samples of skin care from two

I ordered online Trial samples of skin care from two separate companies. The products were Eyereform/dermarstore and Haloeyeserum/naturacel. Both of these companies sent me the trial samples then sent me monthly the products. There was no information provided or bill enclosed, confirmation #, email of shipments, tracking number these products combined were almost $800.00 and I didn't order them. Spoke to a rep that told me that I needed to cancel the trial within 14 days or the product would be shipped. I have read online that others were scammed and if you log onto products they request you not to write complain about credit card charges. My debit card has been discontinued that was used for these products that I can not afford. My bank wants information that I don't have, don't have any receipts or documentation for this purchase because I didn't order them. This went on, myself thinking they are sending me samples for several months. If they had sent something that indicated other than a trial size I would have questioned it. Each of these were in excess of $85.00 plus for a tiny vessel of product. Do I have a recourse. Thank you Sharon GeertsenJA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: I live in MontanaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Yes I reported it to my bank, First Interstate and they changed my debit card. They sent me a letter wanting receipts or supporting documentation and I don't have any because I didn't order it.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No I think that's all I have except I didn't check my bank statements which indicated they were withdrawing month after month without my approval.

M. Padron. I have the following question regarding my

Hello,My name is*****I have the following question regarding my consumer rights when purchasing online tickets.I purchased two tickets to go the the Summer Olympic Closing Ceremony in Rio.I purchased the tickets via online from the official ticket seller called CoSport on 8/10/16 (https://www.cosport.com).At the time of the purchased...I selected Category C tickets (I had previously gone to the opening ceremony and purchased the same Category C ticket and had a real good seating area (section 304/equivalent of a 30yard line on a football stadium).Shortly after the purchase I emailed them requesting information on the seating area. I also called them several times and spoke with someone but they could NEVER give me the simple information as that of the seating area. Previously when I purchased the ticket for the Opening Ceremony I did speak with someone names Cory...and he suggested I email them to inform as to what area I would like to sit and I actually had a ticket in the section I had requested.With this first experience in mind, which was that of getting a good seating area for a ticket priced at $646.81 each (total $1,293.62 for 2 tickets) I would have thought I was going to have the same results. I was wrong and after numerous of emails and calls I could NEVER get an answer as to what section I was going to seat in.So, I gave it one last chance and I went to pick up the tickets hoping I was siting in a good area. INSTEAD I was sitting in the end of the stadium. Seats that I, AS A CONSUMER, was not happy with and at that moment I decided NOT TO TAKE THE MERCHANDISE. I asked to speak with a supervisor regarding the matter and my dissatisfaction with the tickets the company granted me. The supervisor then mentioned that these tickets are FINAL SALE. I clearly was not experienced with having this kind of situation. I am used to always buying a ticket and knowing where I am sitting and at $600+ per ticket...I was expecting a better seating area. I thought, as a costumer, I deserved better seating and at least for them to provide that information beforehand. Clearly they didn't but I gave them the benefit of a doubt and went to pick them up...but clearly I left the venue without the merchandise because I was not happy with the merchandise I was given.So, that same night I called my credit card to dispute the charge. I also wrote to CoSport to let them know I was disputing the charge. Also, I went the day before the event to pick up the tickets. Giving them ample time to resale or return the tickets themselves.Note to consider: When I went to pick up the ticket for the Opening Ceremony I waited nearly 8 hours to actually get the ticket. It was very disorganized...but I was happy I was sitting in the central area of the stadium and that compensated the wait. But unfortunately this wasn't the result for the second purchase I did (Closing Ceremony). I also don't know what state law this would apply to since I feel this is an international company but it has offices in NJ (as you can see in their web site https://www.cosport.com).Credit Card dispute was denied because CoSport is protecting themselves by staring that ALL SALES ARE FINAL = NO RETURNS/REFUNDS POLICY. A defense I feel is disputable because if the consumer is not satisfied with the merchandise...we should have the final say into taking it or not. I called the credit card to inform them I am continuing the dispute. I called CoSport and left the message yesterday to speak with the person that wrote the letter to the credit card. I haven't received a call back.Your help in this matter will hopefully enlighten me on what steps to take on next. Thank you for your time and shedding light to this situation I'm really upset about because it is a hefty amount and I feel CoSport should be held responsible for their lack of service in making a paying costumer satisfied with their purchase.I look forward to your reply,Thank you, ***** ***** Padron / Miami Beach, Fl.

US online merchant (centuryhearingaids.com) fraud I live in

US online merchant (centuryhearingaids.com) fraudI live in Vancouver, Canada. I went to a website named http://www.centuryhearingaids.com/ (Century Hearing Aids, 5311 East Peach Street, Tucson, AZ 85712) to purchase a hearing aid. I paid USD $931 by credit card on Sep 9 for a couple of hearing aids to be shipped within 2 days (for a cost of $33) by FedEx.I waited till Sep 14 for the order to arrive but it did not. I wrote to***@******.*** asking for when it will be shipped. I got a response saying, “Its headed your way, I will get your tracking number in 24 hours.”I did not get a tracking number. Two days later I called and wrote asking for the tracking number. I got no response.On Sep 19, I wrote asking to cancel the order. He claimed that the order was shipped but did not have a tracking number. On Sep 20, I went on the website for Better Business Bureau***@******.*** and filed a complaint.Every day afterwards, I called and wrote by emails asking for a resolution. On Sep 23, the business owner finally admitted that the order was not shipped and that he would refund the full amount of $931. Till today that refund has not happened.I call and write emails daily. Every day he has a different story to tell. The last one I heard yesterday, Oct 3, was that his business went through a downfall last week, he did not have the cash to refund the money now, and that he wanted me to wait a couple more days.In summary this business seems to have only a website but has no product to back it up. Even when I asked him about the identity of the manufacturer of the product he is selling, he responded that “Its a mid size mfg in Casselberry Florida - in business for 20 years - they private label for me, and they like to keep that way.”It seems to me that this business has no product, yet he sells claims of a product on the internet then after being paid, he would claim to not have the money available and that his customers have to wait for him to refund it.What remedies do I have? Can I file a police report in Tucson online? Can I hire a lawyer in Tucson to charge all legal costs to that merchant and get me my refund? What is the best route to deal with this situation?

I am receiving threating calls from a debt collector stating

I am receiving threating calls from a debt collector stating they are taking acting against me for check fraud. My problem is I have no knowledge of any check fraud nor have I received anything in writing. I asked for them to mail me something and they said they were notating the account as a refusal to pay. She wanted my credit card or bank information. If, I do owe it I don't have a problem paying it but I can't get them to mail me anything showing me it's a legitimate debt or that they actually own the debt.They have now started calling my family.I'm afraid to call back for fear it's a scam. I've tried to GOOGLE the name of the company as well as the phone number but nothing comes up.What should or can I do?

I have been contacted by a company called YP mobile app,

I have been contacted by a company called YP mobile app, they say I have a past due invoice. This is an unsolicited service. I told them that I have not signed a contract nor authorized this. They told me they have a voice recording with my authorization. This is incorrect. I told them that this was not a real invoice. I was then called by a Michael Burk from something called Peerless resolutions, threatening and harassing. They are demanding payment today. I called YP mobile to resolve this and was sent directly to Michael Burk at Peerless.
