Some years ago I let my brother use my credit card to apply

Some years ago I let my brother use my credit card to apply for a cable tv. The paid for the service for a number of years (13) until two years ago when he discontinued the service, but he didn't pay the balance of the bill. I received a collections notice for the balance. The company says that the account is in my name, which I had no knowledge. I have contacted the collections agency and the cable company to explain the situation (as my brother has too) to have the bill sent to him so he can pay (which he is willing to do). I am getting nowhere with the collections company of the cable company. What's your advice?JA: What state is this in? And when did the issue begin?Customer: Texas...I received the notice last week.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I called the collections company to tell them I did not have an account because I did not connect the issue with my brother. Nothing has been filed other than us trying to resolve the issue with the companies.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no

I bought an RV on the 24 of April 2017. All paper work was signed by me and the dealer. The lender is a bank in Illinois. At the time of sale I was told I qualified for a 5% down payment. On 3 May 2017 I was called by the dealer and was told I did not qualify for a 5% down and would have to come back and re do the paper work and give them more money. The bank has already taken the 5% down money. Is there any thing I can do?JA: What state is this in?

Esq: I purchased a laptop computer for my son almost 3 years

For Gerald, Esq: Hello, I purchased a laptop computer for my son almost 3 years ago on Amazon. We purchased a 3 year warranty offered by a third-party on Amazon(mechanical /tech support ).It expires this August. I realized once the laptop wouldn't work due to a Windows problem of some sort, that we got the warranty. My son's younger cousin, I assume, called to help me out to get the warranty going, as i had been unable to call. For some reason he said he thinks it got water-damaged. Next thing I get an email stating the warranty was refunded. I made time and called. I said I would never ask for a refund of the coverage & they had no business doing that. I said I am the laptop owner, the warranty owner & payment was by me. I was not in front of the laptop to go much further, but they implied bc it was stated there was water damage , it was not covered. I am very mad and told them you can certainly ship it and see its a software or hard drive issue. Now I got another confirmation saying warranty price refunded. They said they took the callers word bc he had serial # and receipt. Do I have any recourse here? They have pulled a fast one on me.

An unregulated binary broker overseas owed me money from

An unregulated binary broker overseas owed me money from months ago for unauthorized charges. Never got it. Well I went back to trading there after hearing they cleaned up their act. Their processor now process's payments under a different name that I didn't recognize on my bank statement so I filed claims with my bank. Statement didn't match broker's name. Website did not state that "blah-blah-blah will show on your bank statement as the charges" I got credit before I realized it was the same broker just a different processor name. They still owed me from before. Do I fess up and reverse the chargebacks? They threaten me with legal blah-blah
