Miguel *****,. - I bought 100 tee shirts from Damaged

Customer Question
Miguel *****,. - I...

Miguel *****,. - I bought 100 tee shirts from Damaged Couture in calabasas for $350 for which I have a receipt. The owner gave me a receipt for $350 and on the receipt he promised delivery on November 17, 2017, however, I have neiher received the shirts nor return of the $350.

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

I live in Oxnard, CA and no one else is helping.

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?

I purchased 100 tee shirts from Damaged Couture, a tee shirt manufacturer in Calabasas, CA for $350. I received a receipt from the owner who noted on the receipt that he would deliver on November 17, 2017, however I have neither received the shirts nor returrn of the $350.

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

I planned to net $1000 from the sale of the 100 shirts and continue ordering.

Hello,

You can send a demand letter to the vendor and state that unless you receive the purchased items immediately, that you will have no choice but to file a civil action in small claims court to recover your damages. If you can prove that you have lost profits of $1,000.00, then the court will award you the entire amount. Otherwise, you can only recover your filing fees plus the $350.00.

I hope I've answered your question. Please let me know if you require further clarification. And, please provide a positive feedback rating for my answer (click 3, 4 or 5 stars) -- otherwise, Justanswer retains your entire payment, and I receive nothing for my efforts in your behalf. Note: If you cannot find the rating button on your webpage, please just type in your rating in a response to this note, and customer service will apply the rating for you.

Thanks again for using Justanswer!

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

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.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
