I have come to realize that the gh end bicycle purchased
I have come to realize that the high end bicycle purchased locally through Craiglist is actually a counterfeit. I now have written confirmation from the Pinarello (authentic Manufacter) US distributor. The seller claims he did not know that is was counterfeit. I do have reason to believe otherwise, however, I would like to know if I have a case against the seller to recoup 100% of my $3,500 purchase price should I not be able to prove his knowledge of such or not. Also, in such case, would I be required to return the item.The seller resides in Olathe Kansas, Johnson county, where I first viewed the bicycle at his residence. I reside in W**** Missouri, S******* The actual transaction took place in Indenpendance, Missouri, Jackson County. Where would I file my case?It seems I have a couple cases, Civil or small claims and then criminal. Would I own the criminal offense or would the County/state or federal gov't or authentic manufacturer?

I buy and sell motorcycles as a hobby on Craig's List. I carry insurance on the bikes I buy and most are street legal with license and registration. If someone gave me counterfeit money to buy my bike, would my insurance cover this as a theft? And, If someone test drives the motorcycle and wrecks it, would my insurance cover this? I only take cash and screen people pretty well, any other known scams to be aware of that you know?

I've a question concerning a clients ability to stop attorneyView more criminal law questions
I've a question concerning a clients ability to stop attorney over billing. Given; Criminal atty takes a flat fee of $10,000 to defend 1 felony charge. The fee will change from flat to a larger amount, or hourly, if the case goes to trial or extreme complications arise. Of course, the client will be notified the minute one of these things happens. It's complications that arise: but the client is never told, until the day a plea is accepted. The last day atty and client will meet. On this day, 11 months after flat fee of 10K was paid, a second bill arrives in clients mail, for $25,000. No warning of "complications" was given to client from atty; trial is not an option. Isn't this contrary to the guidelines of Ca law , in which a client must be told almost immediately when his payment, flat or retainer, is used up? Otherwise the client assumes the flat fee is covering everything. Isn't waiting almost a year, racking up over double the initial cost paid as flat fee, unfair to the client? There's no chance for client to notice that this billing may be unfair, unacceptable, if no complications are evident. Shouldn't the client get the chance to ask for an accounting of these fees, so the client can find another attorney? Isn't every other month considered the standard? What can a client do when presented with an additional $20,000 on the last day working with this atty?
