    Default Can You Be Charged With a Crime for Failing to Provide Services After Taking Payment

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: Washington
    I sold a used computer for services I was going to provide but didn't. I want to make it right, but am wondering what I could be charged with, if the other party won't respond. Is this criminal , or will it have to be in small claims?Thank you

    It might be treated as fraud, which is essentially a form of theft. If you never really intended to provide those services when you made the contract then you committed fraud. At the very least, the other party can sue you for the breach of contract.

    The computer I sold, was given to me by the other party first.

    How much did you get for the computer?

    Has the other party complained about not getting the service that you agreed to perform?

    100.00 It was old. Sold it for parts. I never got a receipt, but researching the model, they sell used between 150 and 300 tops

    Yes, and they got someone else. I have made the offer to replace it with another, which costs much more

    And what did they say to that?

    Although, rather than go on and on with it, why not just send that person a check for $100 and be done with it?
