Or, can I sue that peron for the difference? Thank you.JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: TexasJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I got it in writing and in email. but I didn't have enough "legality" on print to file a lean on that person.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I don't think so.

I recently learned that you can supposedly file a lien on

I recently learned that you can supposedly file a lien on your birth certificate BOND to take back the title, power of attorney, and Treasury Department account(TDA) attached to it. The $value of the lien on my own birth certificate can therefore be created by me as worth anything, Ex. 1 $Trillion, or even a blank check. This then would allow me to discharge my debt to the federal government(having the TDA pay for debt) rather then from my regular bank account. This was legalized by HJR 192 in 1933(the new deal) when the United states defaulted, ceassed to legally be a country, and is now in fact Unites Staes incorpatated of the state of Great Britain. My question is, is this a real thing? If so, would you be willing to look over my Uniform Commercial Code(UCC-1) filling to make sure my paperwork is correct, and that I am doing the filling process properly?

We are Wisconsin residents. We made a downpayment for some

We are Wisconsin residents. We made a downpayment for some home improvements to be done to our house. Later the same day we wrote out a check for a downpayment we had some concerns with the person (carpenter) who was going to do the work. I called the carpenter the next morning explaining that we were going to hold off on the work and asked for the return of our downpayment. When the carpenter made it clear he was not going to return the downpayment I informed him we were stopping payment on the check.Sometime between when we gave him the check and the next morning when we told him we were stopping payment he signed the check over to a friend who in turn cashed the check and gave the cash to the carpenter.Bot***** *****ne the carpenter got our down payment and his friend who cashed our check for him was left holding the bag when his bank did not honor check due to the stop payment.Now this friend who cashed the check is coming after us for payment and a lawyer he contacted is telling him we are responsible for honoring the check because of "holder in due course". Are we responsible for this check even though we were dealing with the carpenter and not his friend who cashed our check for him? We are not sure what to do, or our rights in a case like this.Thanks,KD Wisconsin

I shipped a package valued at $2300, at a UPS Store. I purchased insurance for the package. The package was damaged in shipping. The UPS store (an independently owned and operated store) claims they cannot be held responsible because I signed a Terms & Conditions contract. I actually did sign it. It was a full page of text. I did not know what it was. The clerk did not tell me what it was. It was not completely filled out. But I did sign it. Will this terms & conditions contract hold up in small claims court? Even though I did not know what it was?JA: Because laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And can you tell me what's been officially filed?Customer: Georgia.
