Customer Question
I have been ripped...

I have been ripped off by a fellow I hired to do some lawn work. He walked off the job when I showed him his original receipt, wherein he said he'd remove and replace a certain bunch of oleander free. I had already paid him $600 towards that end but he was already writing up an additional bill. When I showed him the original I said, "You owe me $600. He mumbled and hemmed and hawed and finally said he'd go get my money right. Shortly after he, his men and their tools were gone and not seen again.

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? And is a local attorney or other consumer protection advocate helping with this?

Arizona. I don't know where to start.

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you contacted the manufacturer?

There is no manufacturer involved

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Not that I can think of, thank you

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
