    Many consumers ask if there is an automatic right to cancel a contract to purchase a car within three days. The general answer is there is no three day right to cancel the transaction but, as always, there are exceptions. I'll give you some general guidelines. Consumers can rescind a contract if it was induced by fraud and the parties can be returned to the status quo. Consumers can revoke acceptance of a car if he or she received non-conforming goods, e.g., the consumer buys a 6...

    Yes, they can but that probably is not commonplace unless they are just trying to get location information, sometimes referred to as information for a skip trace or a header. You should know that the credit bureaus request a lot less information from their subscribers for your credit report than what they typically require from consumers and sometimes, the reports generated for the consumer are different than those for subscribers and sometimes subscribers are given two reports, i.e., multiple...

  4. Should I dispute a repossession on my credit report?

    The lender should not be entitled to a deficiency if you were not sent a notice of sale, etc. Thus, although the repossession reporting may be accurate, the amount of the debt may not be. If you would like an instructional dispute letter form, you can email me at stevefahlgren@gmail.com. You may also want to send the creditor a validation notice. Make sure you ask for a copy of that form as well. I wish you the best in the future.

    You certainly can sue. The seller has likely breached the implied warranty of title. You may also have a fraud or unfair and deceptive trade practice action. Prior to forming my own practice in 2002, I represented several car dealers. Since forming my own practice, I represent consumers and no longer represent any car dealers. I have sued several car dealerships for selling a used vehicle without proper disclosure or for breach of the implied warranty of title. To better evaluate your...

    Robert Sola, Mike Baxter and Justin Baxter are Portland attorneys with the reputation of having the highest verdicts against Equifax and Trans Union. I have worked with them. I would recommend you give them a call.

    I agree with other commentators. Statements made in the course of litigation are usually not a basis for a defamation complaint but may be perjury subject to criminal prosecution if they can be proven false. This is an important case on the litigation privilege. http://www.floridasupremecourt.org/decisions/2007/sc05-564.pdf I wish you the best in the future.

    I am sorry to hear of your troubles. As a previous victim of identity theft, I have some idea what you are going through at this time. I have also been involved in hundreds of hours of litigation with the credit bureaus and obtained a multimillion dollar jury verdict against Equiifax so I have considerable experience with this problem. See http://www.fortheconsumer.com/in-the-news.htm You should file a police report if you have not done so already. In my experience, I have not seen a...

    Randy provided some good advice. The School Board sets the policy. I would go up the chain of command to the Superintendent and if he suggests it is a policy issue, then I would go before the School Board. Get involved and stay involved. Have a great weekend.
