I received a letter from Trident Asset Management, L.L.C.,

I received a letter from Trident Asset Management, L.L.C., based in Atlanta, GA, claiming that I owed $630 from a check that I had supposedly written out to a casino in Wetumpka, AL, to withdraw cash on December 2, 2011.I only received any information about this alleged debt from 2011 in August after I answered a call from them, after a month of them calling, thinking they had my number on a call list and I wished for them to remove it.After receiving the letter, which only stated the amount I owed and who the previous and current debt owners were, I filed a complaint with the BBB of Atlanta and sent Trident a certified letter through mail disputing the claim and expressly requesting a copy of the original check so I could verify its authenticity.They responded to the letter again telling me how I could make payments and that I had 30 days to dispute the claim, with a letter showing the amount I owed and the debt owners. They did not include a copy of the original check for me to verify.I have written to them with a certified letter, again stressing that I disputed the claim and demanded a copy of the original check.I also wrote to the Alabama Attorney General about this issue.Since I was never notified of this alleged debt until last month and they have yet to produce a copy of the original check, do I have any legal standing against them? Would I have to pay the debt they claim I owe?

We never made it to court and the person over the estate got ahold of another lawyer who is acting as a legal advocate he was under the impression that the case woulde be dropped and when we went to court they are going to put the case off again because they want to charge me with another offence in which he told me that he would not be able to take the case because I could not pay him and I did not qualify for a public defender because I made to much eventhough I spent all my moneyon the first case I am one check away from going under.The person that accused me wants to recant his statement I know for a fact he tried to call the court himself he is a minor 17 almost 18 but he was afraid his father would find out and he's affaid of being hit and the person that he did call did infact call his father who is pressuring him to say the things he said. what am I to do for legal help?

OUr HOA changed parking rules. All 61 spaces are. My wife

OUr HOA changed parking rules. All 61 spaces are for guests only. My wife has Handicap placard due to peripheral Neuropathy. They refused a reasonable request for aparking waiver. Refuse to correspond to us as we sold our unit to an investopr and rented it back. Fined us several times, the last one was $250 which we re-imbursed our landlord. Before the cnange in rules, we could park one car outside our garage. Not now. What are our rights.JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state the association is in?Customer: Irvine, Ca.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No, but thinking about it. I don't think HUD or other Gov't agencies do much. Are basically non-responsive.JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: My wife has balance problem. Fell 3 times last month. So far, only once this month. Always lands on her face/head. Very bruised face right now. Needs to be able to walk to outside car. Too many steps to get into garage

What happens when a company is able to lock up the regional

What happens when a company is able to lock up the regional market and not allow any competition? Is there a way to legally force entry into the marketplace? An example, let's say a shoe company has gone to every retail location that rents space and has reached an agreement with all the individual landlords that they are not to allow any other shoe company to rent space from them other then them. By doing so, it gives only the option of someone wanting to enter the local market of building their own store and not renting. Is there anything illegal in doing this solely for the reason to prevent competition in the local marketplace?
