Welcome to JA and thank you for your question. I will be the Attorney that will be assisting you.

The first step is to file consumer protection complaints at the State and the Federal level. The consumer protection agencies are paid for by your tax dollars to assist you.

The other option, and you can do both is to file a claim in court for the amount owed.

Can you tell me if there was any paperwork signed?

I see them in Indiana. I am not seeing them Ohio. Can you tell me where in Ohio so I can tell you the complaints to file and how to bring a small claims action?

The Ohio Attorney General is the top law enforcement officer in the State. The AG is tasked with investigating and resolving consumer complaints against companies doing business in their State. You will contact that office at http://www.ohioattorneygeneral.gov/Files/Forms/Forms-for-Consumers/ConsumerComplaintForm3292012-pdf.aspx

At the Federal level a complaint for an investigation can be filed with the FTC at https://www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov/GettingStarted?NextQID=251&Url=%23%26panel1-2#crnt

I have more information for you if you can tell me the county in Ohio.
