okay so here's the deal. I recently took out a loan on a chain my dad gave me when I was a little girl so this does have a lot of sentimental value. I really needed the money. I've been putting it on hold from taking it out by paying extra fees. I have a receipt that they gave me stating I had till this October to either pay again so It could stay there or take it out.. I called them last week about the chain and they said they had sold it already and that I didn't have till this October but it clearly states on my receipt that I do... what could be done???
Yes, you can sue the pawn shop for break of contract. If the value of the chain is $10,000 or less, you can sue in small claims court. You can file and serve the documents on online. Google "Los Angeles Superior Court Small Claims" for more information and instructions.
Agreed with the above. If the deadline has not already passed, document yourself attempting to redeem the necklace and then telling you it is already sold.
The sentimental value is not something that will add to your damages in court.
