My question involves a consumer law issue in the State of: Texas
I recently gave a contractor checks made out to a medium-sized home repair chain store in the South that totalled about $6000. He bought the materials and then returned them without my knowledge or consent and received a store credit in his name. Now that I have discovered this theft, the store is refusing to give me store scredit or a refund. They say that once the checks from my account, signed by me were accepted by the store "they just became money" and were put in his account. How can this be legal? It sounds like a conspiracy to commit fraud between the contractor and the store chain.
This chain has stores in about 7 states , so there must be hundreds or thousands of victims just like me. It sounds like a class-action suit made in heaven.
Part 2: If I want to warn other consumers, is it alright to identify the store by name, or to say something like this :it has a green and yellow logo and the name rhymes with Oh boy's
