I am a foreign medical student doing clinical rotations here
Hi, I am a foreign medical student doing clinical rotations here in the US. The rotations are organized by a private company (Pinnacle Education Services) that my school in Mexico works with... The rotations are not as agreed upon. We pay a large sum of money to come do these rotations. Does this qualify as consumer fraud?JA: Because consumer protection law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: TexasJA: Have you contacted the manufacturer?Customer: reread the questionJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no

I entered into a annual contract that renews every year
I entered into a annual contract that renews every year automatically for another 12 months. In order for me to terminated it I must give them 90 days notice. 115 days prior to the end of the current contract I inquired how I could take advantage of a promotion that they offered regarding if you signed a one-year contract you can get one month free. At the time they told me that current customers could not take advantage of the offer. After looking closely at the terms and conditions I found I could take advantage and pushed this issue. Now 60 days since I initially inquired they are telling me that I could have taken advantage but I needed to have given them a 90 day notice to prevent my current contract from renewing at the end of November 2016 for another year automatically. I feel that I was misled by them telling me initially that I could not take up the offer.Is there any case law as to how I could justify that they misled me as to how I could've taken advantage of the free month back when I still had the option to give them a 90 day notice to terminate the automatic renewal?

Would I have a legitamate case against the company that I purchased my new built home from? I have been trying for almost three months to try and get them to fix damage that was caused by improper installation and they refuse to acknowledge our communication.

I recently purchased a living room sectional from a used
I recently purchased a living room sectional from a used furniture store, I had found on the app OfferUp. The owner and I settled on a price discount of the delivery (actually a discount of their consignment fee), because of the claw marks on the sectional, that I was unaware of, until I went to the store to pay for it since their policy is cash only. That was stated on their ad. The owner basically purchases furniture, gets it cleaned and then sells it. Either that or they sell furniture for a consignment of 35%. I had texted him pictures of my current living room set and he told me he wasn't interested in purchasing it...that's when I found out about the consignment deal that they offer. The owner explained that he couldn't deliver the sectional for free so I was able to get him to agree that he would deliver the sectional, pick up my set, sell it for me and then discount the delivery and pickup fee total of $50, off of their 35%. I contacted him today to ask him what time he could deliver and pickup today and he said around 4:00 this afternoon. Then he asked me if there was anything wrong with my set because that would affect the sale of it. I explained the 2 small things wrong with it and that I'd take a couple of pictures and text them to him. He replied saying "Yes please because if it's something I have to put money into I'm not interested". Before I could reply and send him the pictures, he quickly followed that up with "If it's got all those issues that you're speaking of I'm going to pass". So I told him that I was going to have to go back to the store and get my money back. He quickly said there were no refunds so I explained that, that was not stated to me upon purchase and it wasn't stated on the receipt. After some time had passed, I'm assuming he looked into this, legally, he told me that the policy is posted all over the store. Obviously, I knew that before I'd arrive at the store, he would've made sure that policy was posted all over the store, if what he was saying was actually not true. So what do I do now? I sincerely ***** ***** the long message but I wanted to be as detailed as possible.
Yesterday I arrived in Austin, Texas to an apartment I had
Yesterday I arrived in Austin, Texas to an apartment I had viewed online and signed a lease for based on photos (of a different unit) and a 1min 30sec digital tour of the apartment. Once physically in the apartment I found it not to be in livable condition. Aside from obvious aesthetic things like it being filthy and missing a drawer in the kitchen, the dishwasher is filled with disgusting, stagnant water, there is mold and mildew in the bathrooms, large holes in the wall above the baseboards, and cockroaches among other bugs both alive and dead throughout the house. My girlfriend and I stayed in a hotel last night and told them that we refused to take ownership of the apartment in it's current condition. At this point, it seems like they will likely not agree to the necessary repairs of the apartment, and I would like to know what leg I have to stand on in that situation.

I had an RV that I wanted painted with a design. The original estimate was $15,000 with a $9000 upfront deposit. I made this deposit and waited for 3 weeks (original estimate was 2 weeks). I gave him another $800 during the 3 weeks in good faith towards my total tab. The RV was returned to me in horrible condition with blotches paint and deformities in the paint every where. The owner says that he agreed it was not his best work. I was upset and just said that he should paint is one solid color to avoid screw ups in the design. He agreed and asked that I pay him more money to cover the extra cost of paint. After much debate I paid an additional $2000. He agreed to take another 3 weeks to finish the RV paint job in one color and then I would pay the balance $4700 upon completion. He texted me on the 3rd week after and stated that the RV is done but that there were still bad areas that he felt needed to be worked on and that he needed more time. I responded "ok" and that I didn't want to rush him. He just texted me (4 weeks later) and said that he's not done but is not going any further until he gets more money. What recourse do I have??? Can I take my RV back right now? What should I do? I feel like this guy is going to literally steal more money from me.
We had a misrepresented offer up with direct tv as a
We had a misrepresented offer for signing up with direct tv as a customer...the promotional offers was of a 300$ gift card and once the sales rep saw we were at & t customers said we could bundle accounts and qualify also for the 48" Samsung tv! Wow amazing offer, we questioned him at least 3 times because it did not sound right and he kept confirming we qualified so needless to say we signed up, on our contract forms it says about the initial promo of the gift card plus 3months free Chanel's.... Then I said how do we get the tv? He wrote a link in the back of the envelope for us and stated to wait until after we had service installed then go to link and claim promo....so we did and of course it did not apply to us, you must add a line and purchase a Samsung phone over 600$ later.... I have spoken to different department many times and have a case# ***** doesnt always show on their reports but when it does is because someone takes the time to read all activity since start and all they say it's escalating, but no help from them.today June 13 the I thought I should call about the gift card which I was told about 5 weeks ago that it had been processed, today is not even showing on initial order that we had one coming, so the representative kindly took the time to request it to be added to account since she saw offer was for Jan 2016-sept 2016 ..... My husband wants to sue for misrepresentation and fraud, also wants to post online about the way they r doing business, I like to know if there is a way to move forward with this, do we have a legal case? Or should we go about it by exposing their lies viral?....Thankyou kindly
