A wholesaler sold me a batch of supposedly authentic handbags, and I have come to learn they're replicas. What's my recourse?
Pay him with counterfeit bills?

I had a expensive repair on my car that was supposedly eligible for reimbursement from the manufacturer which was rejected multiple times for no clear reason.
Any recommendations for a lawyer that would take a look at it?

Lemon law layers ?

Tell him that either he's willing to take it back and reimburse you, or you go to the cops.

Is there a point in getting a lawyer involved ?

A lawyer would only be helpful if you want them to send a letter threatening to sue (which would likely only work if you had a case) or if you actually want to sue (which would definitely only work if you had a case)

I shipped a package with UPS. When I declared the value, I underestimated by $1500. The package was sent as signature required and was never delivered. None of the procedures or requirements for a signature required package of that value (>$10k) were followed.

Originally there was no signature shown as proof of delivery, but after the initial claim was opened, they showed a signature that was clearly bogus. The claim was reopened, a police report was filed, and after a few months they granted the claim but only for the amount in the declared value, not for what we provided invoices for.

Can I take UPS to small claims court for the remaining $1500? I figure that by granting the claim they've agreed they did not deliver the package using the precautions I paid for/requested. If I would not have declared the value, would they be off the hook entirely?

UPS is only responsible for the declared value. IMHO

Iím not a lawyer but it might be worth filing a in Small Claims Court regardless. Because as long as itís not a slam dunk case for them, thereís good chance theyíll settle for for at least more than it had cost you to file.
And no reason to be intimidated. Itís not like going up against UPS Corporation. For these small claims cases they hire a local fly by night attorney to represent them. Prior to the court date corporate gives them a maximum number theyíre allowed to settle for. The better prepared you come and ready for a fight the higher the settlement number they will offer.

IME its pretty cheap to file, and they may just settle.
