    What r my options?

    We are both in the States...same State actually.

    He advertises on Craigslist

    He had a website.

    I know his girlfriend's website and bricks and mortar biz.

    I wrote him two checks that he cashed.

    He keeps having excuses...started in Mid February.

    Last contact was May 04 via email that he would get back to me May 10th.

    Long story short...NADA! despite my calls and emails


    What would you do?
    Legally? offline
    Website? t
    CL postings - so others don't use his service

    Basically a game plan to thwart this predators efforts.

    I appreciate your time and input in advance

    Yeah do a chargeback through you're bank... Since you said you're in the same state I'm guessing he isn't local so I doubt you payed cash

    Ok here are a few things to check.

    First see if he has a real company. that is set up as a dba, llc or inc. Next I would sign up with Pre paid legal and have them send a legal letter for you.

    Then if that doesn't work then go file at the small claims court. This is cheap to do.

    Then go and file reports on all the rip off report sites that you can find.

    If you are still needing work done shoot me a PM i can help you out.

    since you wrote him checks. take him to small claims court. hopefully he does not live too far away from you.
