I gave a Yorkie breeder $300 as a deposit Yorkie. The

I gave a Yorkie breeder $300 as a deposit for a Yorkie. The agreement was for me to pick the Yorkie up on Sunday 6/26. My niece had my car so I called the breeder to see if my niece could pick up the puppy along with my check for the balance owed and the breeder would not give her the dog. The breeder said she didn't feel comfortable giving the puppy to my niece (I asked her was it ok earlier and she said yes). She also said that she didn't accept personal checks, which she never told me. So we then made arrangements for me to pick up the puppy Tuesday between 4-4:30pm. I called 2 times and the breeder didn't answer. I sent a text message with no response. She called me about an hour later but by then I had made it back home which is about 45 minutes away from her. In my message I said that it was too much of a bother getting the dog so I just wanted my deposit back. Today I received a message from another gentlemen saying that the deposit was non-refundable and the deal was off. Do I have a case to get my refund back?

I bought a 2009 Cadillac CTS from someone I thought was a

I bought a 2009 Cadillac CTS from someone I thought was a friend in December of 2015. I traded my 2007 Hyundai Elantra and 5,000 cash for the car. I immediately got insurance on the vehicle in my name but was negligent as far as having the title and registration legally transferred to my name immediately like I should have. About two weeks ago, a stranger came to my door and said he was there to take possession of the vehicle he just bought. He had a valid title and registration, and since my documents were in the back of a giant storage unit, the sheriff's department advised me to let him take the car. Since then I have been able to determine from his former girlfriend and baby's momma (who is also co-listed as the previous owner on the title) that he got a duplicate title for the vehicle about 30 days before this happened, and made her sign it. She has written a signed statement to this fact and I'm wondering how I should proceed or if I have a case, and if so is it criminal or civil?

We red a service firm to do home repairs: plumbing,

We hired a service firm to do home repairs: plumbing, painting, tile installation, etc. The work was some of the worse I have ever seen. It has been almost two months and I have been in contact with the owner, who keeps promising to come and take a look at it. He has finally said he will be out by the end of the week. We have paid half of the quoted price and don't feel we owe more, in fact, feel that some of our money should be refunded. Are we under obligation to let him send his crew back out to make it right? If not, what are our alternative avenues?

What can I do regarding the following in PA, anything?

What can I do regarding the following in PA, anything?Amidst selling my home, I rented a storage unit from Jetport to store my belongings. My storage needs surpassed the space I had rented. I requested a 2nd storage unit late morning on a Saturday. They charged to my card immediately even though I was asked when I would be "moving in" to which I responded tomorrow (Sunday). That evening, my plans had changed and I no longer was in need of the 2nd unit, however the office had already closed for the day. The office was also closed all day Sunday. So...monday morning (within an hour of the office opening) I called to cancel the unit I had reserved on Saturday. Long story short...After a lot of aggression towards me on their part, they reluctantly agreed to refund me a portion of what I had paid. 30% penalty for 3 days of use, claiming I was responsible for Sat/Sun/Mon at 10% per day. (Even though I had the unit for an approximate total of 6 hours of available office hours that I could have cancelled). Plus a full months charge for storage insurance and an addition $20 administration fee! In total...I paid Jetport $109.68 for a storage unit I never accessed (didn't even put my lock on it or open the door). The facility prevented me from cancelling sooner than I did because of their available office hours and being closed on Sunday, but still held me responsible financially for those days at an inflated rate. 30 days for that unit was $257 equals $8.47 per day ($25.41 total cost for 3 days), not the $77.10 they charged me plus extra fees.

May of 2015, I called a company located in CA. that makes

May of 2015, I called a company located in CA. that makes ability boards for physically challenged citizens, and inquired if one could be customized and delivered for a dedication to a non-profit organization before or by a scheduled luncheon,November 8, 2015. Confirmation on the make, sale and delivery was made. Price tag: $7,000.00 pre-paid. Invoice mailed to me.November came, no board. The seller did call to ask if delivery could be made in January of 2016. I rearranged dedication date to accompany his request. January, February and March went by. No board, no calls, no contacts or connections. Ending of April the merchant call me to say the board has arrived. I told him because of the new arrangement, the board need to be delivered to my house.When he arrived, everything came in separate parts. Nothing was packaged or shrink wrapped. I ask if this was a new board, he told me it was. I asked if the special calligraphy writing was imbedded in the board as I ordered, he told me it wasn't. I told him to just place the pieces in areas in my garage and that I will look them over when I get back from my three weeks overseas, which I was leaving in a few days.When I came home and checked the items out two days later, I was very distraught. The board and various accessories were not new at all and in bad condition. He pawned an old, used and damaged board on me. I called him right away that I was not accepting the board and that I was very unhappy about him not keeping to his commitments. I told him he need to pick this board up and give me back my money. H hung the phone up on me. Before he did, though, he said something to the effect of..."you wanted a board, I got you a board and that board you got is what you paid for".I want to give him or the company he does business an opportunity to mediate the money I paid to have a board made for me. If not, then I will make this subject to sue.Is this a case I can go into court by myself and rely on the judges decision or should I take council?Thank you for advise.
