My question involves a consumer law issue in the State of: NY
I hired a paving contractor to resurface my driveway which he did and gave me a written guarantee for 3 years started on 7/14 by 7/15 the driveway is basically crap now. They were called several times and were always no show.
Shortly after this they changed their number and started going by a different name. The original and new business entity's I believe are not legitimate businesses as I can't find record of them with the county. I know I should have done more research but I was pressured to do the job with a low price which I should not have done, as I see that clearly now.
Now, I paid with a card and the payment was actually drafted by a legitimate business here locally which I believe is a relative or friend of theirs processing their cc payments. All correspondence via USPS has been returned when I send to the people that actually did the work. So, my question is does the company that actually took the money have any liability here? Do I have any options at all?
