Good morning out there on the coast. Thanks for using JUST ANSWER. Short of a tire iron out on the parking lot :-) it would appear that your next logical step is to hire the lawyer that you should have used in the first place to sue the fellow immediately. The amount of noise that you can create around the office, including going to his wife with the problem might be helpful in getting your money back; however, my experience in matters like this is that this fellow cheated you out of the money because he desperately needed it, and it's gone. Nevertheless, I would not recommend simply walking away at this point.

I hope that I have provided excellent service and, if so, would love a 5 star rating. If not, please let me know how I can further assist you. There is no additional charge to you for rating me. A bonus is not required, but is always appreciated.

Thanks again for using JUST ANSWER.
