I sold a phone in used, but new condition to someone over

I sold a phone in used, but new condition to someone over amazon for $220 (dollars) not including the shipping they had payed. The phone was in amazing condition and I had securely wrapped and shipped it to the buyer. When the buyer received it, they started throwing problems at me left and right, but I stayed patient and tried to work it through. After a month of going back and forth, the buyer claimed that they wanted a partial refund or a discount to compensate for an issue with the phone that occurred during shipping. I relented and agreed for a partial refund of 20% plus the shipping they had paid and left it at that. The buyer then decided a month later that they wanted to file a claim with amazon. Amazon did nothing to support me as the seller, they misinformed me through emails sent to me, and the disregarded my entire representation in the claim stating that I did not provide required action within a timely manner when in fact I have emailed the claim service with their response stating that I had no action to take except to wait for the claim to be resolved seeing as how it was under review. In my account, the claim is still under review yet they have taken money and forcibly refunded the buyer which was clear trying to get a free phone the entire time.JA: What state is this in? And just to clarify, when was the purchase made?Customer: I, the seller, am from the state of Florida. The buyer is currently located in New York. The purchase was made on January 8, 2017JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Yes, The buyer chose to file an a-z claim under the Amazon a-z guaranteeJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Amazon has also emailed me stating that they do not allow for excessive messaging between parties and usually cut off at a certain point, however, that clearly isn't true if the buyer consistently kept contact just to get what they wanted.

I briefly attended a for-profit college from late 97-early

I briefly attended a for-profit college from late 97-early 98. When I withdrew from the school, the school immediately sent my account to a law firm for debt collection. From 98-about 00, I made monthly payments to the firm until the debt was paid off. Today, in 2017, I am told by the school that I still owe them money! The school rep was unhelpful, and kept insisting I owe money, instead of listening to what I was saying and trying to get to the bottom of the issue. I called the law firm that I made the payments to, but I was told that they are "no longer the same office," that they have not represented the school in many years. The assistant did try to look me up in their records, but they have no information about me. My question is: I am scared that this school is going to send more debt collection after me. What can I do to find proof that I paid the debt and protect myself? After all these years, and many moves (I was in the military), I no longer have any documents to indicate I paid.JA: Because education law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in? PayPal, Debitcard or credit card are all fine. Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: The school is in PennsylvaniaJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I think I've got it covered so far.

I have a question regarding the repayment of a loan. My

I have a question regarding the repayment of a loan. My ex-boyfriend owes me at least 7K for a loan I gave him in 2012. I say "at least" because I opened several credit cards in order to provide him the money, and these cards have accrued about 4K in interest since then. Can I sue him for this loan? He has not given me any money to pay towards his debt in over 2 years.
