How to Sue a Company

Every year, thousands of companies get sued. This is due to a number of reasons such as defective products, poor service, harm that it could cause to you or your properties and others.

These reasons can make you file for legal action against a company. If you are new to this, it could be a confusing and difficult process.

suing a company

There are steps that you should follow and understand when it comes to suing a company.

  • The first step is to investigate on the company that you want to sue. You can use the internet as your resource tool. You need to collect as much information as you can about the company. Gather information about similar lawsuits or complaints that is close to your situation in particular. The small claims court is a venue where you can sue a company. It is normally found in any state. It is much more relaxed environment compared to the higher courts. However, make sure to be wise in filing a complaint, this is because there are limits on the amount that you can sue. With small claims court, there is no need to hire an attorney to represent. In this case, you can be able to save a lot of money. It is best if you can gather your own evidence so you can build a solid case.
  • Before filing a case, it is best if you know whether your case is for money or you need to replace a product. Remember that you can only sue in small claims court if you are after money. If you have gotten a bad product or received a poor service, then you would need a much higher court system. This would require you to hire a lawyer to represent you.
  • You can’t do away with paperwork while suing a company. It is best to file your paperwork at local courthouse. They will be the one to advice you about the next step. You need to be 18 years old and above to be eligible when it comes to suing a company. If you are below 18 years, you will need somebody who is over 18 to represent you.
  • The next step is to know who will serve and deliver the notice to the company that you are suing. The court could either send it via sheriff or using a process server. This process server is anyone who delivers paperwork to the person you will be suing on your behalf. The person must have proof that the paperwork has been delivered and signed by the receiving party. If you don’t have a process server, then you can appoint someone to deliver the paperwork.
  • It is best if you could organize your paperwork. It is a good idea if you can accompany it with pictures. Find anything that would support your case like testimonies from individuals.

Take time to attend hearing so that you will know how the process works and what to expect from it.

    Hi, I worked as a freelancer for a Ottawa based company. Its been more than 6 months I completed the project and did not get paid yet. Still now I keep on exchanging emails with them. But I get very rare reply from them saying that the payment will be made. Under the above circumstances, I was wondering what would be the process to sue the company and how much it would cost me. Thanks.

    A background check company working on behalf of an employer in which I was seeking employment, faxed personal information over to a past employer to seek employment verification. What she meant to sent was some type of release form but she says she accidentally sent my personal info. This info contained my full name, date of birth, social security number, drivers license number, physical address, personal email address, high school diploma, my grades from the college I attend, and my 2005-present tax transcript that I received from the IRS. They keep calling me and leaving messages apologizing and asking me to call back but I'm trying to find an attorney first. However, I don't have any money for one right now because I'm still a college student and i just started working. What can I do? How much could I sue them for? They are a multi- million dollar company?

    Las Vegas, NV, US. Hi, I am working for a large corporation [Port of Subs]. I have just recently realized that my manager clocks me out for breaks I do not take. I have clock-out slips as proof. I am concerned that this has been happening since I started working for the company. I understand that what they are doing is illegal and am concerned for other workers, as well as myself. Is there a way I could sue the corporation?

    Hi, I own two houses next door to each other. One is a rental, the other my daughter lives in. My problem...The rental is with a corporate account. I receive considerably more rent from the corporate than I would renting to anyone else. The gas company has been billing me for both houses. I finally caught the problem. I spoke with the gas company and they said they would get it taken care of. The lady in charge of the corp. account can not bill the company for the gas bill until she receives a accurate bill. She is not in charge of it. The legal department for the company will not allow her to pay the gas company. This has been a mess since I complained to the gas company in April. Two days ago the lady from the corporate called me. She was very upset. The gas company has turned her over to collections, because they have her SS#. We have been working with the gas company, the supervisor who we have been talking to for the past month calls and keeps telling use the account is still a mess but they are working on it, and thank you for being so patient with them. Because of what has happened with the gas company and the collections, the corporate is going to break their lease with me. I stand to loose thousands of dollars. Can either of us sue the gas company over this? I depend on the high rent money and security that goes with this corp. account. The corp. lady of course will now have this collections thing show up on her credit reports and is understandably upset. Thanks.

    On may this year i started working for a company named st.jude medical. I had applied for the assembly and i got it. If only i knew what i was getting myself into. My aunt had worked for them previously for two years and she always used to tell me about how they mistreated people. Even she had told me all this i still wanted to work there because they paid well. Ever since i had started the job they kept moving me from one department to another. During my third week there after being moved to the third department i called about my pay check and they told me they wanted to terminate my contract and i shouldn't come in on monday. I had explained to the lady that first got me to the hiring manager that i needed an explanation of why i was being fired. She told me that the supervisor said that i made 7,000 dollars worth of mistakes. I told her that i was new to the department and because i was transferred there that same week and i was in training because for every mistake i made my previous coworker also my trainer had told me that i should put down in training. Nobody had told me that i shouldn't make any mistake but i don't understand thats why people get trained so they can learn. But the story is longer, i never went back. I want to sue them now, can i?

    This may be stupid but a newspaper I had subscribed to continued to deliver after the subscription expired. They then billed me for the delivery. I explained by phone and in writing I didn't want to continue and any deliveries would be considered as gifts. I just throw them out. They turned this small amount over to a collection agency and have dinged my credit. I told them if this were to happen I would sue. Now, how do I sue? It's a matter of pride, I just can't let someone extort money from me yet I don't want to pay the extortion amount if it cost me ten times the amount I owe, I want to stand up for myself.

    Flint, MI. I'm not sure where you guys got your information. You have the option of suing a company in Small Claims Court, but if you choose to do so, you will waive your right to the appeals process. If the Judge rules against you, you lose - game over.

    Instead: file suit in Small Claims court and on the first day you appear before the judge ask that it be removed to General Civil.

    This way you will preserve appellate rights instead of laying all of your chips on one number. Judges make mistakes - small claims will lock you into those mistakes forever.

    As to the lawyer contention - that depends on what your case involves. If you were bringing suit in small claims, you likely have a case that you won't need an attorney for. There are many resources online (such as findlaw.com) and in libraries (such as the NOLO collection) to do it yourself and spare yourself the $180/hr lawyers fee. Good luck.

    Hi, I was working for mcdonalds a million dollar company. I was employed at there company in 2009, I were going into work on my off days to cover for other crew members. My checks were always short, but I was going in on my days off off work to make extra money. So by law I was suppose to be paid overtime. I kept wondering why is my paychecks so short. Then I called the insurance company and they told me I never was registered into there system for insurance so my employer was not suppose to be taken and medical or dental or vision insurance out. I talked to the manager and he told me he was going to fix it he never did. So I received my w2 form and someone ssn was under my name and I called corporate it took them 8 months to fix that error and the employer I was working for never fixed it he told me that there was not anything he can do about it.

This is how mold starts. I thought the white circles where just crumbs or some thing. After a couple of hours, i got a stomach ache. And then it was gone. My refrigerators temperature is normal and the other older cheeses nothing happened to them. Can I sue Kraft Canada??? Toronto, Ontario

    Maybe you know that Expo is a corporation or a company who is responsible for helding job fair and exhibition for unemployed and graduated students to find Jobs. During the year this company advertise for several job fairs and most otimes job seekers should pay administration fee about 5 $ or 10 $ or maybe more. I have seen only job agencies, recruiters and colleges attend in this job fair to present their self and companies don’t attend in these job fairs specially big and reputed companies. Yesterday 27 of January 2011 as an unemployed person attended at skywalk employment exhibition just because of Bombardier Aerospace in their list in order to drop my resume. but the guy from this company denied to admit my resume, honestly I don’t believe this kind of job fairs because I have attend several times and haven’t had any good result for finding job. Always some colleges and agents attend in these job fairs, the only reason for me was attending Bombardier Company. The guy told me through their web page i can apply for that, the question here is that, I know and knew as an engineer who is looking for job that through the web page can send resume, but what is the target they are here for job seekers? Are you planning to get unemployed people money, are you considering just for your own benefits? This is fake and I am so nervous since I wasted my time, money and so on…please let me know how can I sue Expo? Regards Mohammad

    Hi, My name is Aman and I bought a dvd player for my car for $ 199.95 on 23rd of March 2011 at 3:30 pm in the afternoon and the item had delivery for overnight for $ 37.95. I bought with the delivery for $237.90. Today is 25th of march 2011. It means it as been 52 hours and still they didn't send me the item. I called them today to ask why my item is not here, they were saying that we don't know when your item will come to you. I ask them that i paid for overnight shipping. they replied me that we don't give you Guaranty that when it is coming to you. I am thinking that if they charge for the delivery and shipping money why they don't deliver by the time. I want to sue them. Can I do so? Thank you
  • James expert adviser said on March 26, 2011

    @Aman, i know it feels bad when the things are not at your doorstep when it is expected. But I don't think you can really sue them, read their terms and conditions that you agreed before buying, they normally mention about "no guarantee" on shipping. But you can definitely cancel your order right now as the item didn't arrive on time and take a full refund.

    I walked into a McDonalds restaurant in Honolulu Hawaii early one morning and a worker that sees me all the time. Said to me how big is it? I said to her what are you talking about. She said how big is it and was looking at my lower body. I told what. She said I see you with alot of girls. I told her she should not be asking me that kind of things. I told her Manager and called the Toll free number. A lady called me and asked me how can they take care of it. They fired her and transferred another manager that had complaints about this before. She had said other things to her coworkers. This is the first time she has said this to a customer. McDonalds says they well send me a check for $100. No lawyers that I called would even look at it. Should I take the money and run.

    Hi, I live in Northfield, MN. My wife was late for a dentist appointment. because we got pulled over by an officer. When it happen we gave the Dentist a call and told them we'd be late. I was driving and didn't have a valid license and my wife had a drivers permit. Officer told her that she couldn't drive and needed someone to pick us up. The lady we called at the dentist asked us when would we be there. We said 30-40mins. I asked the officer if he could take her there so that she wouldn't miss the appointment. When I made it to the dentist i saw my wife crying.She told me that they didn't see her and that the dentist was very mean to her, she was scared. I don't think that was right and went up and talk to the counter people and ask if i could speak to the dentist that talk to my wife to let her know that wasn't right. she told me that they booked 2 hours for her. I said she was only 30 mins late? I also told them that they didn't have to be so rude to my wife. They told me that I was being rude, which I wasn't.... and they wouldn't see my wife if I continued to talk like that? I told them you know what fine, don't see her it's ok and walked off.

    RED DEER ALBERTA CANADA. I went to super store and purchased sushi from the bento kiosk in the store. I came home and it was lunch for my kids and I. I gave my children 2 pieces each and I had 2 pieces as well. I ate my second piece as I was chewing I bit down on a crunchy object it was unknown to me. I spat it out onto my plate and I found a pill It had a clear cashing on it almost looked like a anti-biotic it said 15mg on it. I still have the sushi container the piece of sushi and part of the pill dissolved in my mouth. You can clearly see the 15 mg written on it and half of the medication in the casing. My children are involved so I believe I have a case about and hour after the incident I felt dizzy and sick to my stomach I had no sitter so I couldnt go to the hospital yesterday when it happened I am still feeling dizzy and sick so I am going to the hospital to get them to check me out. My kids show no signs of them having anything in there sushi there ages are 2 and 3 years old. I have contacted Bento sushi in Toronto I explained what happened they told me to bring it back to super store and someone would send it off to toronto and than they called back and said someone personally will be coming to my residence to take it. I am going to get them to sign a piece of paper stating they have received it so I have confirmation some one came to pick it up. I have been a great customer to this company and I am just shocked this happened it could of killed one of my children or myself I have no idea what this medication was. If you could gt back to me I would greatly be thankful I am just unsure on what to do. I am going to mention that I am trying to contact a lawyer when they come to get it. thank you.Crystal Shannon

Now I doubt the entire billing system of Rogers which they have sent me for the past 5 years. This time I don't want to spare them. I have a strong evidence with me and they also agreed that they done the mistake. I wish to sue them for at least $400,000. Because they should feel the pain once hereafter before charging anybody. Is that legally possible for me to sue them for the above mentioned amount.?

I happen to be highly allergic to meat and have not eaten and in 21 years now. every day that we had the soup, i ate it, but would get really sick. i would be throwing up for days and lost a lot of weight due to the illness. i wasn't sure what was making me sick until much later. the soup was the only thing i had eaten the day i realized thats what was making me sick. i read the ingredients and it said ham... i told my GM about it and they contacted corporate. the person i spoke with told me that it was just a substitute and it shouldn't be making me sick. they basically told me it was all in my head. months later im still waiting to hear back about what they plan on doing about it. i didnt get an apology, my money back or anything of the sort. im to the point where i am ready to sue them for labeling the soup vegetarian when it clearly is not. i'm not sure who to talk to or where to go. i am still currently employed with them. any suggestions?

    I purchased a storage shade from Sears store @ Holyoke Mall,Holyoke, MA on 7/30/2011 for $456.86. The shade is manufactured by Arrow Storge Shade Co. The shade came in a heavy, bulky box. I told the salesman I will pick it when I borrow a pick up truck from my friend. He said it was no problem. Finally, I was able to borrow truck on 8/13/2011. That day there was a sales tax free weekend in Massachusetts. So I asked the salesman if I can take advantage of that. He told me that in order to do that I had to cancel the first sale & repurchase the shade. I did so to save good amt. of money. I repurchased the shade & took the delivery. When I started to build shade I discovered that it was very poorly designed & sheet metal material was very thin & cheap. It was very easy to put kink in the panels. According to Arrow Co. it should take two days to build shade. We found it very difficult to build it. When assembling holes were not matching. I had called Arrow & Sears & complained about problems. There were also parts missing. Once I ran out nylon washers & had to wait for 10 days before I could resume work on building storage. Now the shade is complete after six weeks, it is plagued with water leaks. When it rains I find water puddle on the floor inside the shade. I complained about that. I never got any concrete suggestions. I called Sears Customer Relations & complained. I told them that I was totally dissatisfied with their product. Sears has a 90 day return policy. I told them I was willing to take the shade apart & bring it back to the store for a refund. The customer relations person told me that since I purchased the shade & return it for a refund & repurchased it so that I would not have to pay sales tax I am not eligible a refund even though I am dissatisfied. But I never ever picked up the shade first time it was purchased because I needed a truck to haul it. Returning & repurchasing was all just paperwork. That is a poor excuse to refuse refund. What can I do?

    Last weekend I went to NJ for thanksgiving. I was shopping in the mall and wanted to use restroom, I was in macy's and I went in stood in the line. It had about 20-25people infront me. I was holding my bladder for so long. Then I was feeling really hot and I thought may be its just hot here then after some more time I started sweating, by the time I reached the restroom I passed out. Luckily, my co-sister was with me and held me and called for emergency. After, I came to consciousness, I saw cops around me, first aiders putting the oxygen mask on me. They asked me if I had any medical histories, I said no, they asked if I was pregnant, I said no, they asked me if I took any diet pill, I said no. I pulse went down, my blood pressure went down for holding my bladder for so long. I later realized that there are only 5restrooms for 3floored macys. 5 is insane, I see small restaurants have 5. The lady who works there said there is employee restaurant which no one knows, people could have used that. How will people know about it? They are only worried about selling products to customers but not worried about how many customers are in line for restrooms, are they not responsible for that? Can't they put a sign saying additional restrooms are at so and so place? What if there was pregnant woman standing in that line for 20mins or more.. what if something with medical conditions was i that line, what if any old lady was in my state and has dropped the pulse and blood pressure? I want to sue Macy's for their negligence. And I need help!

    A couple weekends ago, I went to a concert at the House of Blues in Boston and was completely sober. When I handed them my bottle of sprite they looked at me and was questioning it and they pulled me aside and accused me of possession of alcohol and have been drinking. They kicked me out and I asked them to breathalyze me and they refused. Can I sue them for that?

    I made a purchase from a very popular store and i was given coupons based on my purchase to be redeemed on a said date, on redeeming the coupons i was given a merchandise return card. After some days i wanted to use the card only to find out that the card has no value i explained to the sales personnel how i got the card and she called in her manager who arrogantly offer to pay a less amount than what the card was valued for. The manger was so insulting and threaten to called security to walk me out of the store.But at the end i requested for the card and the balance coupon as evidence. Can i sue this store for this act?

    Bronx, NY, USA .. A cab driver kicked me and my younger sisters (11 & 5)out of his cab because I questioned him about the price he was charging, but never did I say that I wasn't gonna pay him. When I questioned him he said if you don't wanna pay I'll pull over you can get out and catch another can I told him to take me to my destination then he asked for the money.. I began to explain to him my father was paying him when we reached to our destination and the driver became outraged and began to yell at him and told me to get out .. Is there any way he can be sued or the company can be sued ? He left me and 2 kids out in the street on a Sunday night at 10 pm to get another cab in an area we don't know .. Is that right ?

  • Michael said on May 26, 2012
    Hattiesburg, Ms, USA.. Somebody please help me. I took my car to Midas because it wouldn't crank. They told me if they were to give it a tune up the problem could be fixed. IT DIDN'T work. SO I had to pay them $230 for their work that didn't fix my car. He suggested that I take it to the dealership (I had to call tow service and pay $75). I was at the dealership for 30-45 minutes and they told me the problem was my fuel pump and that I needed a new PCM.. Why couldn't a credible place such as Midas spare me time and money and tell me that? So as i'm looking at old receipts, I see one from Midas back in 12/21/2011, where they replaced my fuel pump. So at this point Idk who to sue. I need my money back. I don't care who it comes from. I have lost so much dealing with this situation. I had to take out unnecessary loans to pay off my school account, that's another story, and eat 1 pack of Ramon Noodles every OTHER day to save food. I can't pay my rent because all of my money has been spent on getting my car fixed at any cost. So now have to move back into my moms place until I find a job. I am at the point where I am suicidal right now. What can I do?? Can I take this to a small claims court??

    I was recently fired from Burger King. I'm 20 years old trying to make it and get in school. For no apparent reason. I was there not even two months. I was on time for work everyday. Pretty much got along with the other employees and did what I had to do everyday. Well, we were switching from a company to a franchise and everyone had to go on Hartland food Corporation and reapply to be rehired. I did all of that and completed it. They were also doing background checks. Well, I have a misdemeanor that was 2 years ago and it was dismissed due to guilty by association. So everyone had gotten background checks done. Most of the people that worked there had convicted felonies and were on parole or had a felony drug charge. One employee still had an open case. So all the background check come back besides mine?? I called and talked to both of my managers. One said that isnt right and that she didn't know why the new company didn't approve me. The other manager got smart, didn't even call me to tell me she had an employee tell me I didnt get accept it and to not come into work. So i dont understand that. Then, I heard from a former employee that the manager that is always rude called me stupid behind my back and that she came to selective few employees asking who do ya'll want to stay and who do ya'll want gone!! So that was kind of wrong and I believe there is something else behind that. How do i go about settling this and/or sueing the company? Help I am lost and feel I didnt really have to get fired and for what? oh i'm from nashville, tn davidson county

I have emailed the website three times asking them to take our name off the list but they will not do it. We are getting many calls from men asking for services. We have even gone as far as to move our office and change our phone number but they have now after 2 weeks found our new phone number and put it on their site. 95% of my patients are women and now that it is getting darker earlier I want to make sure they are safe leaving the building because at my old location strange men would walk in and sometimes would walk right back out when they found out it wasn't that type of place. I leave here a lot by myself at night and don't feel safe because I know its just a matter of time before they find my new address and strange men start showing up again. I want to sue the website that will not take me off their list! This is not safe for me and my female patients. I fear one day or night someone will be attacked. Please help!

What happened yesterday, i went to an eatery and ordered Veggie burger, instead of making sure twice or thrice, they gave me chicken burger, i had a bite and got some different taste. I straight away went to the store talk to their manager and they accepted this thing. Actually i am a pure vegetarian, it's a religious matter that we are not allowed to have meat, chicken, etc. She told me that you did not noticed before having it, but how would i know that it's a chicken burger or not because i never had something like that. afterall i checked twice or thrice with the the attendant there.

    (Target Co. La Puente CA, USA) Hello...I was wondering, about 4 years ago my friend, whom was 7 months pregnant at the time, and I went to Target. As we are approaching the very last checkout line I slipped on vomit that had been sitting there with no warning of any sort like a "wet floor sign" or anything to warn me. My pregnant friend had to help me not fall so hard but it was impossible considering I was wearing scandals. To make the matters worse we see two Target associated in the clothing section I believe looking straight at us as I slip and do NOTHING about it. I had vomit all over my pants and hands. Well being naive at that time I was more worried about being embarrassed then worried about suing anyone. Well now 4 years later I live in a humid climate and my knee that I put most of my weight on when falling hurts a lot. My dad said it is caused to the injury of when I fell at Target, he says when you get injured overtime you can feel you injury due to the climate. Now my question is, can I still after 4 years sue Target, even though I seem to have misplaced my paper work of that day?!? Also they were going to send me to their medical clinic but I denied. Is there anything I can do?!? Please someone help me!!!

    This is about the collectables that target sold for the Hunger Games. I want to know if I can sue them for canceling my order. When the products were to go on sale. Aug 18th I was checking my computer ever couple of mins so I would not miss out when the jackets and the other collectibles went on sale. Since I'm on the west coast I started checking at 8:30 pm. Once the site was up I ordered 1 small jacket. The jackets were still on sale for 3 more days( I know because I kept checking it). My order had to have be one of the first orders if not the first one. I have 2 emails from target assuring me that I was getting a jacket. Then no message or an explanation from target when it was canceled. This was to be a birthday present for my niece Emma (I mentioned in my other emails to target). I understand that I was not charged for the jacket. But they advertised the product, I ordered the product, was sent 2 emails stating that I was getting one. Then someone on canceled my order. Target could of sent me a message of some kind before it was canceled. Getting what ever problem if there was a problem fixed. The fault here is all on their side not mine, I did everything possible on my end. Do I have a leg to stand on for suing Target

    on 3/26/2012 I ordered a chicken sandwich at CARLS Jr, restaurant in Victorville, CA by their Drive through .They gave me a receipt of chicken sandwich but they put beef patty in the sandwich instead of chicken. I am a Hindu by religion and never can eat beef. Upon receipt of sandwich immediately I started eating the sandwich in my car because I was hungry, after couple of bites I realized that it was not chicken but beef (Beef patty was not visible but was wrapped up between the buns). I stopped eating and parked my car and went inside the Carls Jr. restaurant and gave the manager remaining sandwich and told her that why you gave me beef since I ordered chicken I showed her the receipt of chicken sandwich as well. She told me that beef sandwich was given to me by mistake. I asked the manager to give a claim form so that I could document that event then she called her General manager over the phone and she told me that her general Manager is telling her that she(Manager on duty) is not authorized to talk about this matter because it was a legal matter. I started feeling very stressful & chest pain. I had to rush to emergency room at Victor valley Community Hospital, Victorville, CA where I was diagnosed with heart attack symptoms and then they admitted me in the hospital and performed the required testes & treatments and then I was shifted to saint Marry hospital in apple valley, CA where they performed angiogram test and I was told that this medical condition came from lot of stress. All this stress & chest pain came from this restaurant’s negligence which caused me lot of stress and made me feel guilty towards my religion(Hinduism) which is ongoing. Still I am always in stress and having night mares about this painful act of eating beef being Hindu. Then I spoke with an attorney in Victorville, CA they took my case and also the attorney send the demand letter to restaurant's Insurance Company and insurance company asked for my authorization to release my medical records that I signed. Unfortunately that attorney quit the Law firm which I retained and now that attorney office is telling me that they cannot re-present me in my case and they are asking me to take second legal opinion if I want to. I need help in this case. I found you as a well-known attorney in this kind of area of practice on internet about your expertise. Please call me or send me an e-mail if you can take my case. Thanks & Best regards

    Toronto Canada--Hi I have a dress shop and a customer ordered some bridesmaids dresses she lives in Ottawa, When she received the dresses that were mailed to her she said that one dress was damaged; and she wanted her money back. I have a no refund no exchange policy because some women buy dresses go to the function and return the dress for refund so I had to implement such a policy. I told her that I cannot return the money but me and the wholesaler were willing to look at the dress and clean the stain and return to her or she could do it and will reimburse for the cleaning.

    She refused and continue to ask for the money but the real reason I know; is that the dress was for a young teen and the mother did not approve. She sued me first using her father's law firm and when I said it was conflict of interest; she took a lawyer. I live in Toronto where the order was made on the phone; now they want me to pay 750.00 for a dress that cost 225.00 and now come to Ottawa for the court hearing. I have neither the time or money. I am a small businessman. Does she have the right to sue me in Ottawa when the purchase was made in Toronto. Please let me know.

    I live in Aurora Missouri in the U.S.A. I tried to order a product off a website that only sells things online. I have purchased things from them before as have several of my family members. They are normally pretty good about their products and making sure things are done legally and morally. The last time I ordered something from them it said it was mailed to me but never made it to me and then for some reason got sent back to the company and they refunded my money with out ever telling what was going on. This was after several emails. This time I tried to order 2 pairs of the slippers they had for a christmas gift for my children. They came to a certain total. The first time I tried to order it the website told me they could not process my order at this time to try again in a few minutes. I tried again 15 minutes later or so like it said and got the same response. I then contacted my mother to have her try and order and it went through for her just fine. I went online to my account I have with this company and it never showed ( and still to this day does not show) that I ever tried to order these slippers. But when I went to double check my bank account and figure my book, I showed one amount and the online bank statement showed something much much lower. I showed that I should have like $60 or so in there and it showed I had only $4 or so in there. Those are not exact numbers just an idea of how much the difference there was in there as to what should have been in there. I called my bank to see what was going on and they said they showed 2 transactions pending for the amounts of the slippers. I told them what happened and they said I needed to contact the company. I went back to the website and sent in the email form that I was directed to do. Then the next day after no response I wen through the Better Business Beaureu to find a number to call this company. When I called they told me that they would not help me over the phone that they were only a web based company and only responded by email. I told her I had sent an email and she could pull it up and look. She refused to help me. Then I asked to be transfered to a manager to speak to them and try to get this handled and she flat refused to speak to me. I am not sure what to do next. The 48 hour mark I was told to wait for an email response will be here at 8p.m. Central time today on 11/29/2012. I am wondering if i am able to sue them and how to go about doing it since it is not a local company. The branches are only in NY an Fl. If there is anyone that can help me please let me know. I am at a loss and in a level of income with my family of 5 that the little bit that they took out of my account was a big hit to our pocketbook. We barely make it by month to month with my husband disabled and me not working an going to school full time at college an hour from home. I have to drive there 3 times a week and that hurts our pocket book too. Please someone help me.

    @sandra Baksh, it is hard to give the legal advice for Canada. I suggest you to look for some generic question answers using google and ask your detailed answer here http://lawstudents.ca/forums. I know many lawyers in US & Canada take probono projects so use google to find them and approach for help. There is no harm in trying.

    Hello i'm having an issue with this cooperation. I work for carquest and i deliver car parts. Every time i go to this place this employer for carla ditta he smokes in the office constantly which an office is not a smoking area and i'm currently pregnant and it's not fair to me to breathe in his second hand smoke. this is the second time i had to deal with this situation. I told my manager Mr. Keith and he said the issues will be addressed but i'm still want to take precautionary actions if this issue comes up and yes I can afford a lawyer so contact me in my email and any advice will be greatly appreciated. Gretna, Louisiana right on the outskirts of New Orleans, thank you very much.

    I was behind one payment on my car and the dealership sent for Repo . well my car was Repo, and I called and told them I have the full amount plus any fee's I owed for the Repo they told me I had to pay the full amount for the car and I responded that i knew it was illegal in the state of California , that if i was able to pay the missed payment and any Repo fees they had to reinstate my contract. well they put me on hold and when she came back on I was told I would receive something in the mail . well they lied and said I interfered with the Repo. that was the only thing that a dealership could claim otherwise they had to reinstate me . they lied, and that was illegal . what are the statues of limitations if any? and is my case winnable ?

    I can not believe how 'sue happy' our society is. There are some legitimate posts on here, and those people should sue but many of these are completely ridiculous. What happened to working for your money? Everyone just wants it for free. This is really sad.
  • Billy said on December 14, 2012
    Also - To @Sandy Lane - Have you contacted the repo company? With any luck they will not lie for the dealership and you could end up owning that car. This is certainly something you should pursue.
