ESSEX COUNTY - CONSUMER

Representation in Small Claims lawsuit

NS, a young single mother, paid an acquaintance $2,000 in cash in exchange for a car. She has text messages between her and the man, and proof of having taken out the cash from a credit union, but she did not receive a receipt or sign an agreement. The man never delivered her car and has made excuses for the delay every time she contacts him. NS sent a certified letter asking for her money back, but the man called her and said he didn’t have it. NS is seeking assistance in filing a lawsuit in Small Claims court to recover the money she paid.
