I had my driveway redone, and it is no better than the old

I had my driveway redone, and it is no better than the old one. It has been 3 months, and the guys haven't come back to fix it as promised. They ignore my calls. I feel the next step is either finding an attorney, or filing a claim in court, but I have no idea what to do.

I am in the process of purchasing a motorcycle from someone

Good evening, I am in the process of purchasing a motorcycle from someone I thought was a friend. I gave him the money, he gave the the title, motorcycle itself, registration, etc. We couldn't transfer the title because I had work so we were going to the following day. Now I cannot get ahold of him. I reached out to his mother and aunt whom he used to live with and they cannot reach him either. I have left several messages, called several auto tag places and now I have exhausted everything I can do. please help if there is anything I can do.

I have a storage property of which I did fall behind on

I have a storage property of which I did fall behind on payments. Received a letter via mail June 15, 2016 stating I was behind on rent for unit and currently owed $660.00 (rent plus a lien) which must be paid in full within 14 days of date of letter. Letter continued to say I was now denied access to storage until said time of being current on rent. In addition if we wished to continue renting we needed to fill out paper to haveof the Storage automatic withdrawals from checking account and if we do not wish to remain in unit we must be moved out by end of July and you will have to add July's rent if not automated.We paid the $660.00 and filled out the form to have automated payments made. I talked with the lady of which she stated once payment had cleared she would get in contact with us to get our access back. We waited a bit for understating the clearing of the check. However, the check cleared our bank June 29, 2016 and as of this date we have yet to here from her and do not have access to our stuff. She did not do the July automated payments (reason unknown) we have attempted to contact her via phone left several messages as well as sent email requesting us to find out what we need to do to get our stuff. Again nothing. Now we are almost to the end of July and we want to just get our stuff out and cant and don't know what to do. could you please on what we could possibly do to get our belongings?With Sincere ThanksMarvin Miller

I recently accompanied my daughter to a dress shop where she

I recently accompanied my daughter to a dress shop where she ordered and purchased a dress that didn't fit.A day later I got a phone call from a man that said he was a Bedford police detective. The store owner Brian Fortin of modern bride saw some anonymous online threats (a brick through his store window, setting the store on fire) made on the internet printed them out and brought them to the police dept.I asked why they decided to call me. He said it was a civil matter that he hoped to keep from becoming criminal. I said I left the store peacefully both times. I said I didn't do it nor did I have any knowledge of this. He said he knew I didn't do it. I told him I never I repeated why call me then. He said the owner noticed a large uptake in negative comments about his store after we left unsatisfied. He asked how I felt about that. I said I had yet to make a comment but as long as people are reporting the truth I think its a good thing. I told him this was the man(Brian Fortin) that had yelled at me on the phone because I tried to tell him his emloyees giggling while trying to zip my daughter into a dress several sizes too small was hurtful.I asked the detective to spell his name. The number he gave me to verify his identity was the same number that came up on my phone when he called. There is a detective by that name in the department.I still don't understand why he called me. I told him I think Brian Fortin was using the police to scare me. He repeated the whole just trying to prevent a civil matter becoming criminal.Is there anything I can do? Is there anything I should do?thank you***** *****FYI checked with my daughter who is 28 and lives in Londonderry and she said all her reviews were accurate and her name attached to them. She brought up as she was the actual customer why would they call me instead of her?

My daughter's friend is 18 and due to issues with her mother

My daughter's friend is 18 and due to issues with her mother and stepfather, she has moved in with us. She has a dog that we could not allow at our house so we had to find another alternative. Another of my daughter's friends agreed to foster the dog for her until she could find a more permanent situation. There was no contract other than through text and verbal. Last night, the friend living with us received a text from foster friend demanding food for the dog. Friend doesn't get paid until Wednesday. This led into foster friend accusing friend of abandoning the dog because she hadn't seen the dog except once in the last month. I know that friend did try to set up a time for her to go visit, and foster friend didn't have time. This also led foster friend to demand $20 per day for the last month that she has fostered the dog. There was no money exchange agreed upon except for friend to help with dog food. Friend was never notified until yesterday that the dog needed food. It had been mentioned a couple of times about foster friend adopting the dog and paying friend $200 for the dog. But now foster friend wants $600 for the month she has fostered, or friend is to give the dog to foster friend.I wanted to know what grounds either party has in this kind of situation? Does foster friend have the right to demand money when no money was originally agreed upon? And can foster friend really get friend for abandoning when I know she has tried to see the dog?Friend is willing to allow foster friend to adopt dog for the original $200 that they had talked about before. I just don't want friend to proceed with this until she knows what kind of rights she might have. There is another family that would take the dog. Friend doesn't want to go get dog and have foster friend call the police on her. That is the impression we have received from foster family.Thank you so very much for any help you can give us.

I have a friend who I lent an iphone to period to where

I have a friend who I lent an iphone to for a period to where there was a verbal agreement that when I would request it back then it would be returned upon request. I have requested it back last week but have only been delayed with conflicts with schedule changes and other reasons why this former friend cannot return my property. She will not accept phone calls and will not answer text messages in a timely manner. She has at 3 occasions via text said she would return the item but when the next day arrives she does not contact and after only warning of possible Law enforcement involvement has replied owing to conflicts that have come up and showing a reluctance for a meeting. I can certainly turn off service but may lose this very expensive New Iphone. What recourse do I have?
