    Non profit horse rescue came on private property and removed my horse while I was out of town helping terminally ill relative. Supposedly the owner called and said horse was abandoned but this was a lie as he just received the board payment for pa...

    Warren’s Answer

    You should offer to pay the reasonable cost of boarding the horse, since it benefited you (and your horse). You should sue everyone involved if they don't give the horse back.

  • I leased an 18 wheeler truck 1200 per mo it just got repossessed behind 2 payments, it was leased

    my truck got repossessed today 4-29-16 need it to pay my bills...

    Warren’s Answer

    Indeed, the only shot you have is a bankruptcy filing. However, even if it works and you get the truck back, you'll have to pay the next month's payment, or they'll file paperwork to get the truck back anyway. There is no substitute for money to just pay your bills.

  • Can I be charged even though Ive paid the doctor all but a very small portion?

    Warren’s Answer

    When you get a check out of nowhere, you should probably ask yourself if you know why you have received the check. In medical situations, there can be obligations precluding your use of the money.

    The doctor cannot "file criminal felony theft charges" against you. The worst he can do is file a suit against you, which he is highly unlikely to do. Just let him know when you'll pay him, and then do that.

    Warren’s Answer

    In these kinds of situations, I would contest the fees, and explore appeal possibilities. I would also contact them and see if there might be a cash discount if you just pay it, if you are in a position to do so.

  • Do I have a case against either not being liable for this debt, or a case against the collection agency for not following FDCPA?

    You should visit with a local attorney, and show him all of the documentation. It's too cheap not to visit with one of us. It may be that a demand letter might do the job. You might actually have a good claim, or it may be just not worth doing. Some judges see these kinds of issues as beneath their attention, but a good look would help.

    Warren’s Answer

    I would suggest that you take all the paperwork to an attorney, along with a chronology of the events, with an eye toward sending a demand letter to let you out of what is probably an unconscionable contract.

    Warren’s Answer

    Theoretically, you need no attorney, but in the real world, you probably do need an attorney to make it work. It won't be too expensive, as long as the bankrupt company or its assigns don't complain or pop up.

    You should immediately start recording all your calls. When jerks like this use crazy and non-existent phrases to scare people, they need to be punished.

    Warren’s Answer

    There may be a gift tax if your money gives you too much money too fast. Any tax attorney should be able to get the basics of the issue, and to be sure, an immigration attorney might be consulted.

    Warren’s Answer

    I think you might just tell them that you consider this a done deal, and if they mess with you further, you'll sue their pants off with a DTPA. In the spirit of being generous, tell them that they can send you something in writing that shows where they get the right to undo the deal after the fact.

    If you have any trouble, just recognize that there are many attorneys in the area who love cases like this.
