for10cents .com owes me between $20-30 of cash and merchandise what cani do?

Terry L :

Hi, thanks for your question. You should hire a lawyer for specific legal advice. No attorney client relationship is created here.

Terry L :

If you are unable to cash out according to your agreement, you can do a couple things.

Terry L :

1. refer them to the better business bureau and open a complaint.

Terry L :

Businesses often want to keep their record 'clean' so they may work with you.

Terry L :

Otherwise, you can file a small claims court action or arbitration against them. Now, for 20-30 bucks, it may not be worth your time, as the costs would be too large -time and court fees etc.

Terry L :

Try the BBB route.

Terry L :

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Terry L :

Thanks
Terry

Customer:

i tried to clarify this it is $20-30,000 cash & merchandise which puts it above small claims -and above something i can just let go!!!-this is why i tried to rewrite the ?

Terry L :

oh, 20-30k! big difference!!

Terry L :

Yes, you would look to sue them in state or federal court.

Terry L :

Once you get a judgment you can seek to enforce it by putting a lien on the defendants assets.

Terry L :

You can seize bank accounts and garnish wages possibly too.

Terry L :

Now, if the company is broke, it could be all for naught, unless your attorney can get a personal judgment against the owner as well.

Terry L :

Then it's a matter of enforcement.

Terry L :

Best to talk to a local attorney to prepare a case for you. They can review strategies, and likely outcomes.

Terry L :

They can possibly avoid trial too, if they are able to negotiate a repayment plan.

Terry L :

When attorneys get involved, sometimes that helps grease the wheel.

Terry L :

any other questions?

It depends on if the attorney will charge you contingency fee (1/3 if win) or an hourly rate.
