My mother was a victim of a security system scam. AMP came

My mother was a victim of a security system scam. AMP came to her door indicating that they were "upgrading" her current Vivint security system. Vivint called her telling her that they were scamming people in the area. Unfortunately, she signed a 60 month agreement with AMP (representatives of Guardian Protection Services). They sent a email notifying her of a direct payment with her bank account and when I called to ask them to cancel her service I was informed that they would charge her $1250 to terminate the contract. She did not receive a copy of the contract at time of installation (5/14/2016). I have asked for a copy and have received it.Is there any other recourse to get the contract terminated without paying the termination fee?

I'm getting sued tree removal There was a verbal agreement

I'm getting sued for a tree removal There was a verbal agreement that the tree company would pay the insurance deductible when I told them I could not afford to pay them the 6200.00 they quoted to do the tree removal work. We included verbiage on the written quote "Ins. to pay" I signed and they signed. The Ins company wanted a amore detailed receipt, so they added some general items they said would be doing and I signed it and turned in to Ins company. No Ins to pay was on that receipt. The Ins company paid me the total value less the deductible, and I in return paid the tree company the 3000. that the Ins check was for. They took check never said a word and cashed it. about a week later I got a notice from the court saying they were suing for 3000.00., that the 3000.00 paid was a deposit. Whats my options or chances?

I am a resident of DC. I have had an intake appointment

I am a resident of Washington DC. I have had an intake appointment for legal assistance. They are currently on vacation for the next three weeks. I asked them what should I do if the company should call me in the mean time. The intake evaluater said that it was extremely unlikely that they would callback. Well, now they are calling constantly, I don't know if I should ignore their calls or take them (and what should I say if I should take the call?)Please adviseI bought an Easy Rest Bed; my problem is with the salesman. I originally wanted to put down $1300 and have a 2-year contract. He said it was easier for us if we only put down $150 with a 48-month contract (Then we wouldn't have to struggle). I signed the contract not understanding what an article 78 loan was, until I made my 1st payment of $2500. My balance remained just short of $6000 dollars. I have a very credit score I would have been able to get much more reasonable payment optionsI called customer service and learned that 48 months of interest was placed on my balance upfront, Therefore; extremely high interest is paid first before the principle. I know that I signed the contract; however the salesman was dishonest and this can't be legal. At the very least the contract should be amended to my original requestI called the company back and explained the situation. I told them that I was willing to make another payment of $1300 to be paid directly toward the principle and switch to a 2-year contract. The supervisor said, “the salesperson is an independent contractor and you signed a contract.” I said he still works for you and he was deceptive. If he does not work for you why then why were no other financial options made available to me other than to pay the full balance upon delivery? The supervisor said they don't make changes but that they would get back to me next week just the same.The contract says that disputes are settled in arbitration governed by the laws of the state where purchased. I believe this is a predatory loan. I should have been offered a better contract or at the very least the contract should

Can you tell me the requirements of a level 2 sex offender

Can you tell me the requirements of a level 2 sex offender in New York State. I have a lake house that I share with a cousin who is married to a level 2 sex offender and is registered. I want to know what he can and cannot do. There are plenty of kids around that are in and out of the camp. I feel that they may keep some of his regulations away from us so he can come. Also, there is plenty of alcohol in the house and people drinking. Not him, but others.
