Im from Germany and I did a bad business with a company wich

Resolved Question:

I`m from Germany and I did a bad business with a company wich is located in Titusville Florida. I have a question to you. Is it possible to bring a charge about fraud? I payed this April to Watson Performance Engineering Dalton Watson) near 4000$ for engine parts but I never get them. To bring back the money with Mastercard was the first what I attempted, but the term was over. Dalton Watson doesn´t answer to my Emails since the beginning of August.

I hope you understand my english and you can tell me if it is possible to bring a charge as a german person.

Thank you very much and Greetings from Germany.

Being German doesn't prevent you from filing charges. The best thing to do is report it to your police and go through them OR report it to your State Department. If that doesn't work then you can contact the Federal Bureau of Investigation and ask them to file charges. You can find the FBI at www.fbi.gov.


There is no "first right of refusal" unless it is a specific condition of a contract, usually written.

By the "could they sue you" question I wasn't meaning that they were really going to sue you, just trying to get you to look at the question of whether there was a contract from another angle.

The other "conditional contracts" like financing, inspection, etc. specifically spell out on them the conditions and what effect they have on a contract so that the conditions, in effect, become a part of the contract. There really isn't any wiggle room because the condition is usually related to some type of performance by a third party, different than what you had here.

I still think you're going to have problems proving that there was a contract. However, if you can make the argument that they approved the condition then you MIGHT be able to argue that the deal to let you take the drawers and look elsewhere and spend all that time and effort was either 1) a part of your contract or 2) a separate contract in and of itself.

Several customers have asked how they direct a question to me in particular. If you specifically want me to provide information for you just put “FOR JD 1992” in the subject line and I will pick up the next time I am online.

You don't have to have a written contract to file the charges. An oral contract is binding.

The FBI is the US organization that investigates crime involving the internet, telephone, or mail.
