Hello,

Thank you for using Just Answer. I want to provide you the best service I can. Please feel free to ask any follow up questions you have.

I am an attorney with 30 years of experience; I hope to provide you information that will help you in resolving your question.

There is a principle in law called "Fraud in the Inducement." It pertains to situations where Person A convinces another Person B to take actions by making false statements which Person B relies upon to their detriment.

That principle can support a lawsuit for damages. These are difficult suits to prove, and so you want to talk to a local attorney to assist you. Most attorneys will meet with you to assess your situation at little or no cost.

Here is an example of a case that discusses this concept. It isn't exactly like yours but it will give you an idea about how it works:

This site can help you find a local attorney:

I hope the information I provide is useful to you. I want you to be comfortable and satisfied with my attempt to assist you. Please, if you have ANY follow up questions, feel free to ask. Please note that I am generally unavailable Friday evening through Sunday.

Please do not forget to give me a positive rating. It adds nothing to your costs but it helps me greatly. Thank you.

If you are dissatisfied with my response PLEASE let me know before giving me a negative review so that I may try to be of better assistance. Or if you prefer, let me know and I can “Opt Out” and your question can be re-posted without additional cost to you. I will be fair to you and only ask the same from you.

Good luck.

Please note: Information is educational and not given as legal advice. Only your local attorney can give legal advice. I can't establish or accept an attorney-client relationship with you. All posts are available for public viewing.
