Frequently asked questions about california check cashing services

  • Because by law, your boss HAS to report the accident to the state labor board, and file a workers compensation claim. Non-insurance cost for an MRI is about $4,000. I'm pretty sure your boss didn't cut you a check for that. And, the reason why the MRI place doesn't want to see a workers comp person who's avoiding the claims system, is because they think they're either getting involved in fraud (true), or they're going to be stiffed for the bill.
  • Some places do not accept Workers' Compensation patients as the rate due to them for services may be less in your state than what can be charged in other situations. Some states have fee schedules for the rates that medical providers can charge, but without knowing your state, I cannot say for sure what is going on. Also your boss giving you cash and not reporting the claim to his Workers Comp carrier is a bit odd and may even be illegal in your state. You my want to give your Workers Compensation Department a call and see what they can do for you.
  • You really can't make a decision until you know what the offer is. If have worked up until now and paid into social security, you will be eligible to start collecting that at 62, although because you haven't worked recently it will not be a large amount. It also depends on how good you are at managing your money and investments or if you have to hire a financial advisor. Another factor to consider is if you are not totally disabled, you may be able to find some work that will accommodate your impairment, to provide additional income.
  • I think your boss was afraid of a lawsuit. It's better to just make sure you can get an actual written documentation saying that you got hurt during work, that way workers comp can compensate you for your time and money wasted.
  • ~~You have to ask your boss to file a WC injury report (by law he has to give it to you). Once this is done you have to go thru the WC system and many facilities do not treat WC patients as it has to be authorized thru their assigned doctors. Please do this right away, you are assured of proper medical care and if you do have something that may take time to heal you will receive 80% of your pay if you should not be able to work, and compensated for any lasting affect the accident may cause. What your boss did is VERY illegal in this state!~~
  • What your boss did is improper. If you were injured at work, YOU must file a WC claim with the employer. The employer, in turn, must notify it's WC insurance carrier.
  • apartment was a disaster when we moved in - actually weren't able to move in until 7 days after lease stipulated because of electrical, plumbing problems. Among other problems, there was mold, open paint cans, unbelievable filth (all documented and photographed). She gave me permission to take 6 days off rent for delay in move-in, 7 days off rent for all my "time and trouble" - cleaning, ongoing problems, etc. This was all done via phone texts. She now says I owe her the money. She cashed checks stipulating what the discrepancy in rent amount was about. Do I truly owe this money?
  • She is not entitled to rent when you could not move in. She can not legally trade rent for services. She needs to collect the rent, pay income tax on that, and deduct the costs of repairs seperately. If push comes to shove she is going to win.
  • If you have documentation just show the LL what she wrote - she just may have forgotten. She cashed the check but she should have returned it requiring that the difference be paid at that time. You could have stipulated on the check the statement on the text- "Payment in full for the month of ___", as agreed on _____. She may want to evict you and that is a whole different issue.
  • You cannot be charged for the time the unit was not available to you. The additional 7 days was a nice thing to do. You'll have to work something out with her on that one. Text messages aren't the best documentation. Given the early issues you're having, make sure everything is in writing (not email or text) going forward and make sure you get detailed receipts. Tell her you want to make sure you understand everything (don't spin it that it's to cover for her forgetting or changing things.) This includes all maintenance requests as well.
  • Hi, I have made a big mistake with my I-129f finace petition, we sent of the biographic info sheets but only sent 2 each when we should of sent 4 each.... now Im very worried that its gonna delay the application by months, is it possible to send the bio info again, but this time in full and have it added to my file before a delay can occur? We only sent off the petition 9 days ago and havent even recieved the 1st NOA (although the check has been cashed) Thanks for any help.... BTW im british so will be goin through the US embassy in London when the time comes.
  • You should receive a letter asking for the additional documents . I don't know when that letter will arrive though. it might arrive after they review the application. which might take around 6 months. look at the processing times for your category. You can just try and submit the biographic information now. they might be able to attach it to your case with no problem. write the receipt number if you get one in time. write a cover letter stating what happened in the envelope. Then have 2 ready if they send the letter asking for it. it should really only delay your case about 2 weeks at the most. I always send my documents overnight express.
  • I use kijiji to sell our rabbits.... I say do it if they use Pay Pal. Pay Pal can save you from a scam and get your money back if you happen to be scammed. You can also verify their information this way. Oh, if you haven't yet, establish the agreement via e-mail in case you have to take them to court. Well, keep the pictures, and keep all e-mails between you 2. If there are any discrepencies- then E-MAIL the seller. Always e-mail. Because it is hard proof and a judge can see what they told you and vice versa. I am still wary of buying things (like pets) via internet, but I feel protected doing things this way. You also live in the same state- so if you have to file a civil case it would be easier for you. But, the more information you ask for via e-mail and the use of pay pal should deter scammers. Scammers will look for you to send cash, money orders and checks. Don't do those things. Use pay pal. If you do these things, you shouldn't be scammed. Good luck and I hope you get what you want. GO TO https://www.paypal.com/ to get a Pay Pal Account Click Sign Up and have your debit card or checking account or credit card information. The payment you make will come from there and into their pay pal account. Benefits of Pay Pal? https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cm...http://www.1pcn.com/customer_service/faq...A money order you can more easily lose money. You can't track the person as well. You don't want to give them a check when it has personal information on it either. People are crazy these days. Look out for yourself.
  • Have them send a pic by email so you know it is really true. Then use paypal if you can that way you have a recete if the puppy does not show up. And as for only $55 that is a good shipping price
  • I would look in your local area for a pet because there are way to many scams out there and I have herd of some from the kijiji site, try looking in a local barter if you have one in your area at least you can pick them up and prob wont cost you as much.
  • Go on yahoo messenger with them and see the dog on a web cam. That will confirm that the dog exists. $55 sounds too cheap for shipping. How do they plan to send it? Can you meet the seller in person halfway between where you live?
  • its a scam leave well alone. anyway if its not the picture you have seen of this yorkie, how are you going to know if is the same one your going to get,there must be some nearer to you that you can go and see them with there mum and dad its best as you can also see that your getting a healthy puppy ,be patience you will get the puppy your looking for
  • I am not sure how you can ship a pet and I dont think its possible. And you will never know, the pet might not be safe (not vaccinated etc) Why dont you just go to your local pet store or adopt one, you will know what you are getting
  • is it ok to get a check in a big lump sums in the state of California if you or a handyman and your subcontract the job out, can i make 300.00 per and get one lump sum if i decide to quit because she is the women from hell i did not keep the receipts i give them to her and now she is saying i run off with the money after i got paid for 3 days at 300.00 a day paid 2 labors a day at 200.00 and give her receipts for around 700.00 a total of around 1,700.00 bucks what do i do cause i give her all the cash receipt, never know i will get into it like this after 35 years in the Business. was to nice , to late police involved i was only the handy man foreman and the interior decorator and ask for 300.00 a day my job was to find license contractors and get the job done but she was to wishy washy and i did not sign a contract with her and she got mad
  • It's ok for someone to pay you to find contractors/service people to complete work for them. By doing that, you are taking responsibility for the work being completed and to your customer's satisfaction. If you did not sign a contract, then at minimum you have to make sure that the work was done and provide her with documentation and reciepts. If she wants to take you to court, all you have to do is show that you did what you were paid to do, and that's it. If she paid you to do something and you didn't do it, that's a whole other story. Regardless of the state. (do the right thing, always)
  • My wife and I bought a home in November 2010. We were fortunate enough to find a foreclosed home that was manafactured in 2006. we paid cash for the house/property. I was wondering if there were any tax incentives when you buy a house with cash because I know that you can claim your mortgage interest but we dont have a mortgage and I know there isnt a current rebate offer.
  • In California, you can deduct the amount of your property tax bill. I don't know if that deduction is a state deduction or a federal deduction though. Also, capital improvements can be deducted if you own the property but you can't realize those deductions until you sell. Other than that, you really are at no tax advantage. The good thing is that you own your home FREE AND CLEAR. Not many people can say that so I'm happy for you! You may want to check with an accountant or H&R Block kind of tax preparation service, or even your banker or tax preparer to see if you can qualify for anything else. Your age can also create some tax advantages (i.e., if you're older than retirement age). Hope this helps. Good luck!
  • Contrary to what some people say, tax credit is of no value to you if your home is paid. I hear may, including professionals in he industry talk about th benefit of tax credit. But remember this, your tax credit only offers credit for part of the interest you pay. You will get some reduction of cost, but will never get your money back. Tax credit is best for those who can not purchase a home on cash. It is an incentive to get people to buy even if they have to borrow. So, you are doing good if you have a home purchased with cash. Tony
  • check the local paper. see what similar condos go for. remember u need to cover mortgage payment, insurance, taxes and maintenance service. when you add all that together, u can rent for that to just come out even or you add a percentage to that so u have a little cash flow. remember the market is kind of crazy. the rule is to get from the rent your cost for keeping the condo. anythiung else on top of that is yours.
  • Look in the newspaper and find similar properties listed under rentals and call the property managers. Ask them how much they charge and how much security deposit they require. Call more than one in the same area where your unit is located. But, just a word of advice. If you are a total novice at this it will be money well spent to interview and hire a property management company. They know all the landmines and you don't have a clue. Learn from them and maybe in time you will have the confidence to manage your own property. You will save yourself a lot of grief and money.
  • Search on the internet. If it's near a big city charge $800 but that's just me
  • Fighting broke out over night between rival factions along the Israeli Syrian border.Initial reports claim Israeli jet fighters have bombed a gorilla base....
  • Stop being so lazy and get in your car and start driving around looking.
  • $650 =]
  • $850 a month.
  • In the state of California you can only pay, in person, with cash or a check. I am sure other US states are similar.
  • Surprisingly, I've had similar experiences (in Colorado). They often have a cash machine on site, which charges high fees. The last time I registered a car, they were going to charge me an extra $10 to use a card. So I went to the ATM and was charged... $10. Go figure.
  • New Mexico takes credit cards online for eligible license renewals. It may be a thing with your state or your DMV lady may not know what she is talking about.
  • Most License agencies only allow cash or check, no credit or debit cards. Credit/debit only if doing business online.
  • Really very common in many states.
  • I applied for a pel grant at santa ana college, but i have decided not to go to school this semester. school starts next week, but the pel grant money has yet to "kick in". my dad said that i should take a leave of absence so i won't lose my money. the reason why I'm not going to school this semester is because my dad and i are not getting along very well and im moving out soon, but i will be going back to school next semester. do community colleges even have leave of absence forms?
  • There's no such thing as a leave of absence from classes at community colleges in California. You should check with the Financial Aid office to determine what will happen with your grant money if you don't take classes. If you get a check, whatever you do don't cash it before you find out directly from the financial aid office. Sorry about the stuff with your dad. Most colleges offer psychological services to help you deal with personal problems while you're attending college. Don't let life stand in the way of your education. Keep persevering in spite of it because ultimately your education will lead you to a better quality of life. Go online, look up Santa Ana College's financial aid office and student health center for more information. Good luck!
  • Great Scholarship...if you win .. it automatically means that you are proven to be in the country illegally and if you are not in the country illegally then you have defrauded the scholarship donor. Does it come with a free trip to an ICE detention center?
  • More than likely, you were scammed. You should be able to check the money order number and see if it was cashed (similiar to a check). For examble, if you sent it by western union, go to: https://wumt.westernunion.com/asp/orderS...and you can see what has become of the money order. If it has been cashed present this information to the seller. If it is not a scam, they will research, etc. If they refuse to do anything, contact Ebay customer service..
  • I would check their feedback first and see if it is a reputable seller. Send them an e-mail and let them know when you sent the payment in. I would also request their "contact information" from e-bay. You will get it in a matter of minutes after you request it. Give them a call on the telephone. Sometimes it helps for them to know that the cyberperson they are dealing with is a real person. Hopefully they will be getting it in the mail monday. Good luck!
  • they are scamming you most likely.

  • Adsense will pretty much NOT make you enough money to support anything....I wouldn't rely on adsense as an income. It's a nice boost but it's not a primary source of money.
  • The desire to learn is a good step to making money online. The next step is to look for free resources that will give you the correct information that you'll need to get started. You can check out here http://moneyonline.toptips.org It gives free training on how to make money online
  • For very best SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMISATION outcomes My spouse and i recommend making use of Google Search Bot: http://is.gd/gsbsoftware Utilizing that software I've got ranked my site to first page of Google on a quite high competitive search phrase.
  • You can fly on a plane alone if you are old enough to walk on your own, though if you are under 12 or so you may have to pay for an unaccompanied minor service from the airline. The age for that varies with the airline. Hotels are the problem. Very few will accept minors(under 18) staying without an adult present, and some do the same for 21 and under. They also require credit cards upon check-in, even if you are paying cash for the room.
  • Money isn't an issue, your age is. You are not old enough to contract for a room. You will be unsupervised minors and no legit hotel or motel will let you stay there for a week of partying.
  • You have to be at least 18 (ie an adult) to book a hotel room.
  • I am a certifed licensed/insured massage therapist skilled in full body sweedish and chair massage. My primary goal is to provide my services to those in the Sacramento, California regine. As some of you may know opening any self owned business is difficult and takes time and stradagy, and thats where comes in. I thought since i haven't seen any question posted like this before, it would be interesting to hear back from. So please feel free to reply back and we can see if there can be a partnership that comes from this.
  • Well I don't know if this is exactly a partnership, but our company is a credit card processing company. As a massage therapist you will need to accept credit cards because people no longer carry cash or checks on them. If you are interested in getting going, and we would love to help you, email us at sales@firstbankcardprocessing. com and we can help you and your company out. Good luck to you.

  • Start a car wash and lawn mowing service.
  • I'd say yes to be honest lol basicly you are asking for quick cash with no outlay, no real skills and minimal effort and if there were such a thing i doubt people would bother going to school. There are many 'schemes' or 'scams' as i prefer to call them that claim you can make a fast buck and usually around exhisting commitments like a current job or kids but after a small amount of investigation you realise the amount of effort you would have to put into these things would be worse than a nine to five and the risks are MUCH worse. I'm sorry its not a very positive answer but the saying 'nothing comes for free' is so true and the rewards you reap are usually proportionate to the amount of effort you put in to get them.
  • You didn't say whether you have any $ to start with but price arbitrage is a good way to make $ fast. Sometimes you can pick up *free* stuff off of Craigslist and resell it on Craigslist (post to a city near you/or near where you bought the item--not in the same location.)' sell in a yard sale, or on eBay. Then pick up something under *electronics* for cheaper than you can resell it for elsewhere..etc. Recap: Find something being given away free and resell it for a profit; then buy something in high demand at a bargain cost & resell it for more elsewhere. Check Overstock.com too for possible things to resell at a mark up, and the Penny Savers type weekly shopper newspapers etc. Good luck!
  • The quickest easiest way would be to invest in the stock market. You can make that much but you will need the capital. Your portfolio return would depend on your capital. You can also fund raise, if you have friends that can help you that would be awesome but if not perhaps try resale. Maybe find a rich "friend". It would all depend on what you need the money for, see I have experience raising funds for a non-profit and searching for sponsors and what not. You can get that money but it will take creativity to find it. Good Luck!
  • Gay porn. Seriously, you can get that $1000 doing a single scene. And if you're in CA already then you're not too far from the epicenter of porn (the San Fernando Valley) so just find an agent and have him hook you up.
  • Go on the stroll on the Sunset Strip in Hollywood. Wear comfortable shoes.
  • I would advise working in construction on your time off from school, basically moving bricks, boards, hammering, etc. Offering to do yard work or tutoring of other students.
  • I was paid Piece Work..$$1,000.00 per month working at a carnival.. That was actually accummulated Piece Work.. Setting up and tearing down 2-Carnival Rides.. And operating them for 5-days..about 4-hours(evening).. It would run April-->>October..I slept in a tent and ate off my BBQ-- Its alot of heavy lifting(iron)..and one stop was NON-STOP...no sleep for 2-days.. That was my part-time second job.. I also worked in a factory shipping copiers.
  • Have a yard sale,recycle,car washes,take care of peoples' pets,online surveys, panhandle, become a street performer, something like that hope i helped!
  • Take a loan from a bank or your friend. Spend it on what you need to spend it on. When it comes time to pay the loan back, call Obama and ask him to bail you out.
  • Seriously, one day EVERYONE should just go, You know what (BoA, Citi, Wachovia, ect (BoA especially)) We are sick of your ****, we want our damn money back In case you did not know the Fed only requires about a 1:25 cash ratio and no bank has enough money to pay back all of there customers if they were to with draw at once. Just curious in case there was ever a revolution against the banks and the fed in general what the reprocautions of this move would be.
  • Funny you should ask that question, I had a really bad customer service experience at Union Bank of California and I closed my account out that day and demanded that I be paid in cash. The bank didn't even have enough to pay me 1/4 in cash and I only had $56,000 in there! They gave me the option of a cashiers check or a wire transfer into another bank. It's scary to think of what would happen, there would be a lot of pissed off people! Good question!
  • A withdrawing of all cash deposits from all banks will never happen. I doubt that anyone could motivate every single US citizen to with draw their money at once. The Jewish, Seven governors of the Federal Reserve Board and the twelve private Federal Reserve Banks would not allow it - they would simply impose a freeze. Note: America is in serious danger of a total economic collapse. I am voting for Ron Paul, he is our only chance.
  • The banks would probably lock their doors for the day when it began to get difficult. Then they would begin demanding repayment on the money that they have loaned out, which includes home loans, car loans, and personal loans. Or perhaps just jacking the interest way up to begin to cover the funds they are returning. Either way, anyone with a loan through them would most likely get screwed. Then again, I could be wrong...
  • Check your disclose, in the event of a run on the bank, they could require a 2 week notification prior to you withdrawing all funds. But, they would probably never enforce that, it would prove to be more of a nightmare for the bank than it would be for you. Banks can borrow to cover their liabilities (deposits) and they can also sell assets (loans) to other institutions. If you think you can shut down a major player with a run, don't bother, they've thought way ahead of you.
  • Hi Sophia, If you want to sell you car then you need to know some basic steps before selling your car. 1. Know the Market 2. Determine the used car value 3. Have the vehicle detailed or clean it yourself. 4. The car should be spotless in appearance. 5. Post an ad on Classified Sites with all the information about the car you can think of, and also upload some pictures of the car to the ad 6. Provide all services records before they ask. 7. Negotiate with them. 8. Do not let them test drive the car alone; they may not come back. 9. When someone has agreed to buy your car, make sure you print a Bill of Sale and get it signed by your buyer. 10. Make sure the check is cleared, or that you have got the correct amount in hard cash, before you sign the title on the back. Now after following these steps you can give the keys to the car. Or, Avoid all this and sell through a broker. 
  • You need to have a valid smog certificate before you can sell a car in California. Get the car inspected FIRST. When you sell a car all you need to do is provide the buyer with a the signed Title, a detailed Bill of Sale and the smog certificate. That's all you need to do to prove to the state that you sold the car, when you sold it and who you sold it to. If you don't trust the buyer and don't think they are going to follow thru with the legal aspects of the transaction then meet the buyer at the DMV and do the paperwork there.
  • Finalize the deal at the Department of Motor Vehicles . To make sure the title is transferred to the new owner. You need the title to the car and the smog certificate. The buyer will have to pay the sales tax and transfer fees. DO NOT leave the title transfer to the new owner .
  • Rosemead, California? I've been hearing that the California economy isn't so good, but please don't get discouraged. There are two types of pharmacy technician certification--state and national. If you're state certified only, go to your state board of pharmacy technician site at http://www.pharmacy.ca.gov/.If you're nationally certified as well, go to https://www.ptcb.org//AM/Template.cfm?Se...These websites may not actually list "help wanted" situations, but there may be good information on how to job-search. Speaking from Oklahoma, most chain pharmacies actually "understaff" and work their pharmacy techs way, way too hard. I have heard that Target is one of the better places to work as they don't do this. Hospital pharmacies are usually good places to check too. If there's a particular pharmacy you would like to work at but no pharmacy tech openings, you may be able to be hired as a customer service provider (i.e., cash register person) and wait for an opening to occur. My daughter is a pharmacy technician, and not very many people know how frustrating and difficult your job can be. (It isn't your fault that some meds have to be counted twice and that insurance doesn't pay for everything!) Please don't give up. (Look on Craigslist and in your local newspapers too.)
  • God,Walmart sure could use some good ones!!!!! Theres suck so bad in my opinion.So slow and never seem to know what there doing.There like a bunch of chickens with there heads chopped off.If it wasn't for the very low prices,I'd never have my prescriptions filled there
  • Sad to say,,even with ANY cuts enforced or put forth,,the problem will not be solved..California is flooded with migrant workers,,legal and not,,which use the hospitals and schools at will.. Enforcement of immigration laws are lax, and everyone at the lower end of the spectrum is looking for and GETTING a free lunch and a free ride..Since NO ONE wants to pay ANY taxes for ANYTHING,,and the govt. is NOT going to ask for any new ones,,California will ultimately find their roads in disrepair, their schools run down,their social services ended,,and eventually California will grind to a complete stop..What all of us have to realize is,,there is NO FREE LUNCH..That's why there's a cash register at the end of the cafeteria line when you push your tray..Sooo,,whatever America wants,,we CAN have !! Its just you HAVE to PAY for it !! And as far as the legislators, they have agreed to a 5percent pay cut..And THAT'S nothing for what their making for what their doing.. They need to have their benefit packages reduced,,with them paying a percentage of the perks they receive !! Like Health Care,,and such..Also term limits with NO pensions for politicians..We the PEOPLE,,have to pay for our benefits, and less more than many even HAVE a pension !! And if they say they can't afford to be politicians if we do that,, I think Americans will come out better without such people sucking on the system.. SOLOMON
  • The standard practice outside of elected members of our government is to fire employees who are failing to satisfactorily perform their jobs. I guess that is as unlikely in California as anywhere else. Unfortunately, it is unlikely to occur. But, a 15% reduction in pay to California or any other state's legislators salary should stimulate a more conscientious work performance. Sorry, but I doubt this idea could be written into a Hollywood transcript.
  • They did technically, a 5% pay cut for people earning over $50,000 a year. But 2 out of the 40 refused. Yet those state workers can't refuse..... http://www.sacbee.com/static/weblogs/cap...
  • I still can't wait for the whiny puke gutless overpaid prison guards to go on strike Gee - they only make $100K per year - BOOO HOOO so they have to take a little cut and they want to go on strike. Well, I hope they let all the criminals out, I've got plenty of AMO, and there will be a lot of dead criminals, that's for sure !

  • This uniform has a 24 month roll out period and is currently only available for purchase in Great Lakes and California... and they have only been on the shelves since 1 AUG.... I'm guessing that even if Sailors have gone out and bought them, they haven't even finished being tailored yet.... Yes, Winter blues (johnny cash), summer white, and utilities are all going away in favor of the new service and working uniforms... but they won't be phased out for two years. Here is a Link for pictures of the new uniforms... check it out!!! http://www.npc.navy.mil/CommandSupport/U...
  • The army infrequently wears their application uniform yet they do have them. They share the BDU (conflict dress Uniform) with the Air rigidity (however the Air rigidity is phasing it out for the ABU) and the Marines and armed forces the two used to apply the BDU till some years in the past. in short, the army has a green/black/brown camo uniform called the BDU, nonetheless they are interior the potential for changing it with a application uniform akin to the ACU or ABU.
  • No. But it's a good idea. You do need to live where they are being shot, which means LA, NYC, Toronto, Sidney, Auckland, London, Paris, Rome or secondary areas like Phoenix or Santa Fe. YOu need pictures and a bio. You're only as good as your last credits. Survive with Extra work which pays $50 a day minimum. What you really need to get film work is a SAG card or some special talent. Are you a magician? Are you a professional clown? A musician? They cast "types" and often need "types" they can't find. Generally, the way it works, is a CASTING DIRECTOR who works with a stable of artists handles the show. The suggest "one liners" and provide all the "withs" and "ands." The Big people are usually drawn off an A or B list. Will you do nudity. That is one way to get in. The list of B list actors willing to go totally naked to secure a part with two or more weeks work is long. Do live stage as much as you can. Network. Go to parties. You need to learn about the "breakdowns" and that means an agent or insider, other than that you work out of the weekly Hollywood Reporter TV and MOVIE list, which you buy at the news stands or subscribe to on-line for about $15 a month. On any given day at any given studio there is a casting session and if you got the balls you can walk right through the doors and get your picture before them. After two years of doing this you finally become "known" around the circles and eventually someone gives you a break, just because you stayed around and made the rounds. They give you a "one liner." Don't blow it. You need dedication for movies. You need transportation, reliable transportation. You have to get there by 5 AM and stay until Midnight. For extra work you need to make friends with the 2nd AD. Get a studio job. Film runner. Go-fer. Every once in a while a VP runs into the office and asks: Anyone here have a current SAG card? The YES person gets a one liner. Once you get your SAG CARD ($1,000+ initiation in a single payment, cash or certified check) you can't do non-SAG work. Even EXTRA work is SAG. First 6 -10 extras must now be SAG. That means if you're not there for the first 6-10 jobs, you can't do it as a non-SAG. Register with the CASTING services, such as Central Casting and the little ones, which change yearly. You will need wallet size pictures, 4x6, 5x7, 8x10, color and black and white. If you can't afford to blow $500 a year handing out pictures, don't even bother going to Hollywood. I know, I been there, I worked with people who got shows to pilot and I got one extra her SAG card. It's called a Taft-Hartley and it comes from them violating a rule that makes you SAG eliable, which is a good status. If you can TAFT-HARTLEY wait 11 months and just keep your ELIGABLITY and state it on your resume. SAG ELIGABLE. Then have $1,000 in the bank to buy your card if they want you. This way you can apply for SAG jobs and still take NON SAG jobs. Don't let your eligablity run out, however, go for the card a few weeks before eligablity runs out.
  • You can find out about auditions on almost any acting website. But most of the time you cant schedule an audition without an agent. Most casting directors dont really take people seriously without an agent because that looks like n agent wanted you. Auditions are also held in Canada, Chicago, and some other big cities. Usually the auditions for a movie are held all over in big placces. You go to the one you are closest to.
  • You need an agent to audition for movies. If it is union movie (Screen Actors Guild) you have to be a union member, - it's expensive to join. Movies are filmed in major cities, Chicago, Houston, Dallas, Atlanta, Miami. If a movie is being filmed in your area, the information may be posted in the section that has information, on what is playing at the theater and at the movie theaters. As, they sometimes will offer small roles to local residents. Also, call the theater department of the universities, and ask if they have a bulletin board that lists movies being filmed in your area.
  • It's much easier with an agent. They have access to the audition info and can schedule an audition for you. There are some open calls though, mostly in NYC and LA. Read casting notices in the newspapers "BackStage" and "BackStage West".
  • open casting calls. where ever they're making a movie. indies might be easier to get into. My brother and his friend got into a few movies shot in Seattle. His friend was a part-timer in a series that was supposed to be in Alaska.
  • yes except for open calls then no
  • i am thinking of putting up a recycling business here in california (sacramento or bay area).i believe its a profit generating business and at the same time it's a help to our deteriorating environment. i need to know the steps from 1 to 10 : start-up,licencing,marketing,where do i bring the recycables?How do i go about it?Thank you.i'll appreciate all the responses.
  • You have just hit the jackpot. Recycling companies can make millions especially with new regulations like ROHS and WEEE in Europe. If you have the technology to separate the soldering material from PCB or to recycle plastics, you will not only be doing the environment a great service; big MNC (because of legistration) will come to you to settle their scraps. Best method, check out the recyclers around the world. Get a contract to represent them in your location. Get investors. Build factory. Get supplies (ie scrap). Get customers (to buy back recycled material). Sit back and listen to the cash register.
  • I recently filed for unemployment with the state of California I was on active duty for the army national guard training for the passed year and was released from my active duty service back to my guard status for completing necessary training. I had filed and received a notice of unemployment insurance award which granted me benefits of 374$ a week, 9 days after they send me a notice of amended unemployment insurance with the weekly benefit amount at 0$ .I'm trying to figure out wether they just are not making any changes to my current award or did they completely take away my initial notice of award.?any help would be great getting through to the edd is quite a ridiculous process thank you
  • A computer awarded you $374. A person looked at it and saw that there was a mistake, the actual amount is $0 Do not cash any checks that might come, you will have to pay it back.
  • If (1) you worked either out of state or for the federal government, (2) the original letter said you were not "monetarily" eligible because you had not worked (or had not worked enough) during your base period, and (3) the original letter was called "Notice of Unemployment Insurance Award", then ignore the first letter; this second letter replaces it, and do not file the appeal. If either (a) your only work in the last 18 months was in CA and not for the federal government, (b) the original letter that said you were not eligible did say use the word "monetarily" to describe the type of ineligibility, or (c) the reason that it gave was something other than how much you had worked, then you need to continue with the appeal. The notice of award says how much you would receive if you were eligible. It is sent whether or not you are eligible. It indicates only whether you are monetarily eligible, not that any other eligibility requirements have been resolved.
  • As long as you were employed for the period of time required to receive unemployment benefits I dont see how they could amend your benefits. You should call the claims number and speak to a rep. and they will tell you everything. Im from NY so the laws might be different in CA.
  • Do not call the claims number, or any other number. Contact EDD through "Ask EDD" form at https://askedd.edd.ca.gov/asp/frmEDDCOMM... without using the telephone.
  • They're completely taking it away.

  • A surcharge made by a merchant when a credit card is used is against the terms of service with Visa and MasterCard. It is illegal in the following states... California Colorado Connecticut Florida Kansas Maine Massachusetts New York (see the statute for NY that I've included near the bottom of this post) Oklahoma Texas States with limited surcharge laws.... Kentucky (bans surcharging by restaurants for tips if they are included on a credit transaction) Minnesota (allows surcharging up to five percent of the purchase price) New Hampshire (bans surcharging by travel companies) Utah (only government agencies are not permitted to add a surcharge) New York has a no surcharge rule for consumer purchases ..... "No seller...may impose a surcharge on a cardholder who elects to use a credit card in lieu of payment by cash, check or similar means..." Statute: N.Y. Gen. Bus. Law § 518 (McKinney) Statute covers: Credit cards only Statute: (N.Y. Gen. Bus. Law § 511(1)) File a complaint against the restaurant with the AG, and with Visa or MasterCard if one of those types of cards were used.
  • A restaurant can do this. Legally. Some gas stations in the south are doing it. Note that a restaurant that does this will quickly be out of business. To me it does not make any sense. Study after study shows that a credit card customer will spend more than a cash customer. Ex: A a gas station a cash customer will only pump 5 or 10 in gas. And it takes time to pay in cash. Blocking other cars from being able to pump. Plus it costs money to hire possibly an extra cashier. A credit card customer will fill up and pay right at the pump, and be done quickly. I read that 6% of the cash that is moving around today is counterfit. And checks often bounce. A credit card is guaranteed payment for a merchant. (even if it's stolen) It makes no sense to me why some places are so bad at logic.
  • Yes. What they are doing is making YOU pay for your own cash back or points earned for the card. Usually the scenario is ...you have a card that gives you 3% cash back on purchases. You buy stuff with the card and the merchant has made an agreement with the credit card company that they will pay these fees. They pay & those fees go to your acct as cash back or points earned. That restaurant (and others that do this) are simply making you pay for your own perks. The way to avoid this...shop or eat elsewhere.
  • Sounds like they are passing off their merchant fees to you. You can contact the Attorney General or FTC and see if this practice is illegal. In the meantime, you always have the choice to walk out of any restaurant that wants to charge you an extra % for using a credit card, or you can just use cash.
  • Yes, they are passing on the merchant fees they have to pay to process that card. There are no laws against it. It may violate their agreement with Visa or MasterCard but that has nothing to do with you. You could report them to Visa or MasterCard but don't expect to see any results. Either take your business elsewhere or use cash.
  • legal but not pemitted by the contract between the merchant and the c/c issuers. you can call the M/C or VISA system office and complain, but the restaurant doesnt care, they're doing it and they are probably not going to stop doing it.
  • Yes, it is. By paying via card you've agreed to the fee. It may violate the merchant agreement but is legal.
  • Of course. Many places do that including gas stations too.
  • I was "sub renting" a room in a large house and the leaseholder recentally deceased. I've been moved out a month now and still no word on my deposit. When I moved in I was under the impression this women owned the house, turns out she was only renting but had lived there 10 years. I cleaned up & moved out almost immeaditally after her passing. Her family member did my final walk threw inspection and was happy with the condition I left the room in. The family member said they would contact me about my deposit in a month after the "estate sale" I finally got back intouch and he clameshe us not responsable for my landloards debts and that I need to file a clame with "probate" in Boulder CO (I live in California)!! The only info I have is the case #. I didn't sign anything upon moving in but I do have Copys of the checks(s). Some was paid in cash.. A total of $800.
  • The estate had 21 days to get you your deposit. It is not dependant on any estate sale, only when you moved out. The estate now owes you 2400. You can file a claim with small claims court in the county the house is in and serve the estate by mail in CO, or pay for live service, but mail would be easier.
  • You will need to check with your state laws. I live in Michigan, and under the security deposit act, a landlord may not unlawfully hold your security deposit without a specific purpose. I.E.) The use of security deposits is governed by Michigan P.A. 348,1972. Your lease cannot waive any of your rights under the Security Deposit Act. A security deposit has a specific purpose: to reimburse the landlord for damage to the rental unit, unpaid rent, or unpaid utility bills left by the tenant. (See "Security Deposit.")
  • I'm a 19 year old college kid who just realized that college in california is mad cheap compared to the east coast. my plan is to take a plane out there to check it out to see if I really wanna live there. my question is though if I do take a plane out there for say a week, is the transportation services and housing cheap over there? (Buses and hotels) do they have hostels? any information would be great
  • College is not cheaper here than on the east coast for a comparable education, and being a non-resident pushes your costs for the UC's up to private college costs. If you're looking at UCSB, the cost for you will be $50,000+ an academic year cost of attendance for tuition, fees, non-resident fee of $23,000+ per year, room & board, etc on a very tight starving student budget. You cannot become a resident for tuition purposes, it's basically impossible if your parents don't live here. (The college is supported by the CA tax payers.) UCSB is competitive for admissions, but they do like out-of-state freshmen due to that extra $92,000+ in non-resident fees, they are even recruiting non-resident students for the extra cash. However, over 90% of transfers are CA community college students as they have the highest priority, even over other UC students. Santa Barbara is one of the most expensive places to live in all of CA, hotels are expensive. The Motel 6 runs about $100 a night with taxes, depending on the day and time of the year. I think there is only one hostel in SB, Santa Barbara Tourist Hotel: http://www.sbhostel.com/ SB and the surrounding area is kinda small, so you can take a bus, bike, or buy a scooter to use. Jobs are hard to find. Westmont College will also be $50,000+ per academic year cost of attendance. Santa Barbara City College (2 year community college) cost of attendance for a non-resident for an academic year is $25,000+. There may be some issue with you attending if you have 4 year college credits and intend to transfer to UCSB. All of the cost of attendance numbers are really low, most students need at least $2000 an academic year more to survive, maybe more depending on living expenses, as cost of attendance at UCSB can be over $55,000+ for a non-resident depending on where a student lives. These amounts do not include summer expenses, probably $4000+ and/or travel home. Good luck!
  • Mad cheap? What college in New Hampshire do you go to? If you are having trouble paying for college in your home state, forget Santa Barbara. If you get accepted to whatever school you are applying to, you will be charged out-of-state tuition and it's not cheap. It's exceptionally difficult for an out-of-state student to qualify for in-state. Most students who attempt to petition for in-state tuition fail. Housing in Santa Barbara is expensive as is everything else in SoCal. Hostels: http://www.sbhostel.com/reservations.htm...
  • Actually tuition costs for universities and colleges are expensive in every state. State schools are less expensive that private universities and community two-year colleges are probably the least expensive. Here's a website with information about Santa Barbara: www.santabarbaraca.com It's considered an expensive city to live in, and quite a few very wealthy people make their homes there.
  • Did you consider out-of-state tuition at all? The out of state will make it more expensive than what the east coast is charging you.
  • Good Question....I suggest you get on the telephone and start calling Western Union locations and ask can I pick-up money at your location? I live in California and just found out I can't pick-up at just any location...for example where I sent the money that's all they do just send money...you can't pick-up there. They told me the only location they knew of where my friend could pick-up her money was in downtown Los Angeles...so I went on the internet and starting calling around...I had to make 4 or 5 phone calls before finding a location where my friend could pick up her money and then was told they didn't have enough cash on hand so would have to issue her a check. I called Western Union customer service and was told "you can pick up at any location". And the Western Union inside my local K-Mart told me the same thing "you can pick up at any location". I tried to argue with them but they just kept insisting you can pick up at any location. I've sent e-mails complaining about this but still have not gotten a reply from them. My guess is that it's a hassle for the businesses to provide money pick-up...they have to keep enough cash on hand (the place where I sent it is a very small business) and besides there's no fee charged for pick-ups so they don't make any money on these transactions.

  • Why would you want to do that? They don't care.
  • I am 28, I work full time 55 hours a week, 220 hours a month, I have about 30 credit points that count towards my retirement and future ssdi benefits. My husband is 25, he has no credit points, so he has to apply for ssi, because he is disabled. I know that when people are married, and one person is working, and the other is on ssi, that ssi counts the partners income towards an income limit that is allowed for a person to qualify for ssi payments. Does anyone know what these limit amounts are? We live in California. We also have 2 children, I do not know if this matters, since my husband has not worked enough to qualify our children for benefits through ssdi. I have googled -ssi family income limit, but I can not find anything that actually list's a income amount, I see some places it talks about marriage, and counting the partners income, but no numbers. I make $1848.00 a month in gross wages. Does anyone in a similar situation know of any actual number amounts, and what is taken into consideration? Thanks to all, and God bless you.
  • If a child has a disabled parent, then the state considers that the disabled parent can not support the child financially as a the parent would be able to if the parent were not disabled. Because I have worked and earned points towards retirement, ssdi, and medicare, if I were to become disabled my spouse, and children would be eligible for $766 a month each, but not more than $1400, this was noted on my social security statement from last year. Then because my husband has not worked, he has been disabled since childhood, he has no credits to count towards ssdi, or income for family. He can apply for ssi, but I dont know if he is eligible to actually get a paycheck because ssi counts your spouses income, ssdi does not. The welfare office told me that when my husband is approved for ssi, that our children will be considered "disabled" because 1 parent is disabled, therefore my children may qualify for cash aid, depending on our family income as well.
  • You should check the social services website in your county since they are the ones who set the guidelines. I have a question about SSDI? Why do your children get any benefits if they are not disabled? I have not heard of that. I thought SSDI was for the disabled person. I am in California. I am on regular retirement social security and Medi-Cal. I know for Medi-Cal, for a single person my income had to be $867 a month and a family of 4 is $1767 a month. I dont know anything about SSI.

  • To make a long story short, I used tags from another car (which was being serviced at the time) on my other car that was running. I was using it to go to and from work and that's it. Anyways, on my way home, San Diego Sheriff ran my plates and pulled me over on the evening of Jan 27th. Wrote me a ticket for three issues: 4462.5 VC; display of false tags, a misdemeanor 27156(b) VC; CARB violation (no BAR sticker on project vehicle), a non-correctable infraction and 16028(a) VC; No proof of insurance - bascially I couldn't locate it in the vehicle at the time and later found it. I was insured well before the time I was pulled over; also a non-correctable infraction My court date is set for March 24th. I am 20 years old with NO prior convictions, or any kind of criminal or traffic violation whatsoever. I've never been involved in any legal matter in my entire life. I am nervous from reading the charges, that I could face up to 6mo in jail? Thinking back through it all, point A) Should not have done it, and point B) Had no idea of the consequences. Should have just left my expired tags showing and would have walked away with three infractions. Don't know what the hell I was thinking. What can I expect of my court date? Will I get to plea bargain? Or what will my options be at that time? Do I need to consult an attorney? I would rather pay $1000 something in fines than do any sort of jail time. My method of resolve: * Show proof of insurance for the vehicle driven dated from Dec 22, 2010 to June 22, 2011. * Show signed affadavit of non-use from the time of violations to present. I plan to file non-operation on the vehicle in question in August - according to the California DMV I must file within 90 days before or after my registration fees are due. All due fees WERE paid on-time for the year of 2011, the car was just missing a smog check due to the lack of CARB/BAR certification. * Plead guilty for use of false tags, say I screwed up and hope for the best. Any insights?
  • If you take proof that you had insurance to court, that charge will be dismissed for a $25 administrative fee. Your bigger problem is the false tags, since you deliberately and deceptively used tags from a registered vehicle on another vehicle. I doubt that jail would be imposed on that, but you should be represented by counsel on any misdemeanor offense. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be appointed for you. The scheduled fine for 4462.5 is about $680, so you are probably going to be out some cash in any case.
  • It happens. Some doctors offices are going to a cash only basis - it reduces billing and collections staff on their end, if everyone pays up front. (And one would hope that therefore their cash paying patients eventually see a reduction in charges as a result.) Doctors don't "have" to sign contracts with any insurance companies, nor do they have to participate with Medicare or Medicaid. If they can make that leap and still keep enough patients to stay in business, then they are entitled to do so. As a patient, you can either do things your doctor's way or find another practitioner. If you're having difficulty finding a provider who will bill your insurance company for you, check with your insurer for a list of contracted providers in your area. Most times, if the provider has a contractual agreement w/your insurer, they'll bill on your behalf.
  • Those doctors are apparently attempting to cut costs in their offices. Insurance billing departments are costly to operate, and I'd venture that a lot of money can be saved by eliminating them, as well as keeping bad debt down very low.
  • Doesn't surprise me. There are a lot of "fake" health policies being sold, and the doctors are being stuck trying to get money from people. It's a lot easier for THEM to just let you submit their own bills. There's no obligation for a doctor, anywhere, to deal with the insurance company.
  • I am planning on shipping a study manual from Illinois to California. Should I do something like a money order, or a just a personal check? Those are the only 2 options of which I'm aware. Also, how exactly do I ship the item? I guess I would go to a UPS or Fedex store, but do they provide boxes for item? All I would do is pay them at the store for the shipping fee? Thanks.
  • Have you considered sending it COD = Cash on Delivery ... when it arrives, the person pays the delivery person, be it snail mail, FedX, UPS, whatever, then the delivery service gets the money to you ... if they don't pay, the package comes back to you & you pay the both ways shipping. When they pay, the delivery service gets to deal with the risks that the money might be a fraudulent payment, running interference so less hassles for you. Have you considered going to one of those Pack & Ship places where they package it for you, weigh it, tell you the rates iva the above 3 places and their 30 competitiots, and you pick the one you prefer, and they help you fill out all the paperwork.
  • Paypal is a great secure company to transfer funds for items purchased. To ship items, find a small mail business that carries PO Boxes. They generally will package your shipment for a small fee, insure it and give you delivery confirmation. Your local USPS has supplies to ship also! Fedex/Kinko's and UPS are great places to get familiar with also as they specialize in getting your packages from point A to point B with little to no worries.
  • Sign up for a free paypal account. Have the buyer email the money to you. It goes directly into your bank account, but all the buyer has is your email address. Paypal will notify you of payment being received. You can then ship by UPS, FedEx or US Post office. I believe the Post office has free boxes for Priority Mail shipments and you can send mail with delivery confirmation.
  • I would suggest you go UPS. Yes they usually have boxes for just about any item. As for you getting your payment,,,,,,,send it COD ( cash on delivery ) The person receiving the item must first pay for the item before receiving it. Pay your shipping and insurance with cash and you will get a receipt from UPS for the shipping, in case it gets lost or damaged.

  • The owners manual should have most of those items listed in it. If yours is missing, go to an auto parts store and get a Haynes manual for around $20. If you are short on cash, here is a link I found. http://www.edmunds.com/maintenance/selec...
  • alot of these items should have been changed a long time ago. a better idea is to join a model specific forum and share your pains and triumphs with a group. here is a site with a cressida following
  • Southern California isn't cheap. Open up any local newspaper and check out the rental section. When you find an appartment that suits you and you know how much the rent is then we can begin: Let's assume your rent is $1000. You need first months rent and security deposit (usually the equivalent of one months rent = $1000). You also need to get your gas and electric started and of course you will need phone and cable service. Sometimes utility companies require a deposit... altogether assume that you will need at least another $500 to get phone, cable and utilities started. If it comes to less... good for you. Of course you want to furnish your place... that can get very expensive if you want to buy everything new. But you can start buying stuff now and put it in storage until you can move out. I would buy everything new for the kitchen: Pots and pans, silverware, glasses, plates, bowls, etc. (For this purpose you can have a friend host you a "moving in party" where everybody brings you something for the kitchen as a present.) Systematically go thru each room in the apartment and "furnish it" by writing down what appliances and furniture you would need on a piece of paper. Don't forget such things as bath towels and bed sheets. Then start buying the stuff you need for each room. By the way, thrift stores are an excellent source for cheap furniture... to this day I have hardly ever bought anything new unless it was a mattress set. I draw the line there... mattresses and box springs are something you do not want to buy used... not even "refurbished". Alway buy brand new. (You have no idea what could lurk in your "used" mattress). To make a long story short: To furnish your place using your existing furniture and buying either cheap or used... you can except to spend at least another $3000.. and that does not include the big flat screen T.V. So: 2 times monthly rent just to move in and pay security deposit. $500 to get utilities, garbage, phone and cable started and another $3000 min. to furnish your place and to fill up the refrigerator and buy dry food items... This is assuming that you are starting from scratch and will have a one bedroom, 1 bath place plus kitchen and living room. I think the last time I moved into a bigger place... I blew close to 10K. But then again I am older... and had this much money saved up for just this purpose. (I had to buy new washer and dryer... and went and bought brand new beds and mattresses...) It was fun... Make sure to have the cash ready and do not "finance" a move by putting it on your credit cards. If you are still at home you should have plent of time and opportunity to save the money you need. Just pretend you are already paying rent and put at least $1300 a month away. This much you can expect to pay for rent and your other monthly bills.
  • I am wasting 10 of my points to notify you all of this: I am in California. FYI so be careful. If it is safe take a picture of the people and their car with plates to give to cops. Don't take any chances though. Make sure you do it when you are safe in your car and leaving or have a way to escape though. Otherwise just say no and get the hell out of there. MAKE SURE YOUR DAUGHTERS KNOW AND EVERYONE ELSE !!! This is something that happened to us on the way back from vacation last week. At first I didn't think much of it until now. The reason we were a little suspicious is we had been riding in a jeep all day with 100 degree temps and we stopped at a truck stop for something to drink. When I was leaving, a young girl followed me out and asked what kind of cologne I was wearing. I don't wear any perfume. Also after 7 hours in the car sweating, I don't think you could tell if I was or was not wearing any cologne. We just got in the jeep and said no thanks. Then it was about 3 weeks ago, I was at a service station in Birmingham getting gas. It was about 9:30 PM . I was approached by 2 men and 2 women in a car. The man that was driving asked me 'What kind of perfume do you wear?' I was a bit confused and I asked him 'Why?' He said, 'We are selling some name brand perfumes, at cheap prices..' I said I had no money. He then reached out of the car and handed me paper that was laminated. It had many perfumes on it I looked quickly at it and gave it back. I said, have no money. He said it is OK, we take check, cash, or credit cards. Then the people in the car began to laugh. I just got in my car and said no thanks. Then I received this e-mail yesterday and it sent chills up my spine. Please read this. It is no joke. Here is the e-mail I was sent: Dear Friends: I know not all of you are women that I am sending this to, but am hoping you will share this with your wives, daughters, mothers, sisters, etc. Our world seems to be getting crazier by the day. Pipe bombs in mail boxes and sickos in parking lots with perfume. Be careful. I was approached yesterday afternoon around 5:30 PM in the Wal-Mart parking lot by two males asking what kind of perfume I was wearing. Then they asked if I'd like to sample some fabulous scent they were willing to sell me at very reasonable rate. I probably would have agreed had I not received an e-mail warning of a 'Wanna smell this perfume' scam. The men continued to stand between parked cars, I guess to wait for someone else to hit on. I stopped a lady going towards them, pointing at them and told her about how I was sent an e-mail at work about someone walking up to you at the malls or in parking lots and asking you to SNIFF PERFUME that they are selling at a cheap price or at least compare to which one you like best. THIS IS NOT PERFUME...IT'S ETHER ! When you sniff it, you'll pass out. They'll take your wallet, your valuables and heaven knows what else. If it were not for this e-mail, I probably would have sniffed the 'perfume' but thanks to the generosity of an e-mailing friend, I was spared whatever might have happened to me. I wanted to do the same for you. PLEASE PASS THIS ALONG TO ALL YOUR WOMEN FRIENDS AND PLEASE BE ALERT AND BE AWARE. IF YOU ARE A MAN AND RECEIVE THIS, PASS IT ON TO YOUR WOMEN FRIENDS. Ladies, this happened to me yesterday and I didn't smell the perfume either, thanks to this email. This is true. Believe me, I know. I was over by Big Lots in the parking lot at lunch time when I was approached. So either day or night, it does not matter. There were 3 guys together when I was approached. I called the police when I got back to my desk. Like the email says above, LET EVERYONE KNOW ABOUT THIS, YOUR FRIENDS, FAMILY, CO-WORKERS, whomever. It helped me. The first thing that popped into my head was this e-mail warning.
  • This has been circulating for at least a couple of years and is fake
  • Good warning, I have two daughters and a beautiful wife. Get the press involved and make it onto the news chanels, now, sooner than later. The world is full of whacko's. magoo
  • so why would they chain rob people in a very public supermarket, im not saying that doesnt happen, but its a dumb place to do it. like the other poster said, its fake i think.
  • Good for you for posting a warning,we all know who he is now-and who cares if this isnt a question,this guy probably saved someone money!!!
  • i have around $470 to spend and so went on craigslist and found a good gaming laptop for $380. the original price is over $1000. the seller claims it is in perfect condition. however, i am living in california and the seller is in montana. in other words, i cannot go test out the laptop. so i emailed this guy and he says he accepts paypal and will return my money if i am not satisfied. he also gave me his number and told me to ask the customer service if i had questions (im guessing he is part of some company?) i emailed him my questions instead, only to have most of them ignored. i began thinking this might be a scam so i was thinking of telling him to give me a UPS tracking number for the shipment and pay him when i confirm the right product has been shipped. but still i dont know if i cant trust him. any suggestions/advice? props to best answer
  • Yes this is a scam. Do only local transactions with craigslist.Also what they do is hack into your paypal and clean up your funds. Also they will pay you extra with a check for something you are selling and ask you to cash the check and send back any extra cash.
  • Stop. It's a complete scam. There is a big warning about this exact scam... on every page on craigslist. Do not reply anymore to the scammer. He's lying. It's all fake.
  • Unfortunately many online retailers aren't real or aren't reputable companies. When dealing over the net with buisnesses from other countries, this is an especially common problem. Call your bank and see if they cashed your check. If they haven't yet, have them cancel or stop payment on it. Then order your gun from Pyramydair.com or Airsplat.com. I can tell you for sure that they ARE real, reputble companies.
  • This is the first email:Hello dear! Thanks for emailing about the Siberian Husky puppies. They are still right here available for re-homing to a caring home that can afford transportation/delivery fee for the puppies. Their names are Tony and Velma and they are currently 13 weeks old and have up to date shots & vaccination. I am not putting them up for sale, I am only in search for a home for them as I just relocated in a new home here in California which turns out to be a non-pet apartment being transferred due to the nature of my job. I am looking for a family that can spoil them with love, attention & care. The new landlord will not permit Tony and Velma stay with me in the apartment and that is why I have to give them out. Already, they are home, potty & pad trained, so you will not face any difficulty if you take them into your home. Also, they possess all their papers which they will travel along with them and they have a health guarantee document as well and come along with. They are very calmed with kids, friendly with other household pets. All I want for Tony and Velma is a good, caring, loving home and nothing more and If you can promise/assure me that you are going to provide them with the best, then I will be willing to let you have them. As I'm concerned about Tony and Velma, I will like to know some few information about you & your family as well as answers to the few questions I have for you below; Where are you located? Can i have your phone number ? Have you ever had a pet before? Do you have kids? If yes, do they love pets? Are you interested in both Tony and velma ? Are you a breeder? If yes, would you want to breed Tony and Velma? And most of all, what's your reason for choosing Tony and Velma as a fury friend? They will come to your home along with some of their accessories which include .., * A new blanket .. * Puppy care kit .. * Food Menu Card .. * Medical paperwork .. * Bag of food they eat .. * Feeding bowl and * Their favorite play toys. All puppies are up to date on their vaccinations and have been vet checked. * Regarding their shipping/delivery, they would be transported to your home by South west Cargo Delivery Service as its the only delivery company in my area that transports live animals. I also did inquire about the cost which I was informed as mentioned above. Tony and Velma could as well be shipped to the nearest airport in your area (if you want) and you will be paying their transportation fee to the transport company just to assure you of where you are sending money for their delivery and it will only take about 5-7 hours for the puppies to arrive your home. I replied and this is the second email: Hello! Thanks for keeping in touch. Regarding transportation, it will cost you a total of $480 for the two puppies to be shipped and delivered at your home, their transportation fee is to be paid directly to the shipping company and the transportation charges is to be paid first so that the puppies will be able to get on a flight. The delivery agency is also going to inform you on how to pay the shipping fee for the puppies and they are going to be delivered at your Airport . Continental Air Cargo Delivery company will carry out the transportation of the puppies. In order to help facilitate the transition process, I will send the puppies along with their personal gift basket which will include; * A bag of puppy food, their vet records, 2 designer outfits each, Some pee pads, Baby blankets, Puppy Care Kit, 3-4 favorite play toys, Food Menu Card, feeding bowls and a puppy photo album and some helpful information. I'm ready to ship the puppies to you and it will only take about 5-7 hours for the puppies to arrive your home. Also, remember to send me monthly updates and pictures of the puppies as they will be coming to join your family so that I see how they are coping in your home. Will that be OK with you? and I can send them right away If I have your information for their delivery. The information required by the shipping company for their flight registration and delivery at your home is ... Full name ..., house address ..., Cell # ..., Home # ..., City... , State ..., Zip code & Closest airport in your area. Once I have your delivery information, I will go straight to the shipping company with the puppies, register them for transportation to your location and email you back as soon as I'm done at the delivery agency. The delivery agency will in addition contact you for delivery confirmation and also to give you instructions on how to pay the transportation charges. Hope to read back from you at your earliest convenience. Please i need to find out soon....
  • 100% scam. There is no dog. There are stolen pictures of someone else's dog. There is only a scammer trying to steal your hard-earned money. The next email will be from another of the scammer's fake names and free email addresses pretending to be the "pet shipping company" and will demand you pay for shipping fees, in cash, and only by Western Union or moneygram. Western Union and moneygram do not verify anything on the form the sender fills out, not the name, not the street address, not the country, not even the gender of the receiver, it all means absolutely nothing. The clerk will not bother to check ID and will simply hand off your cash to whomever walks in the door with the MTCN# and question/answer. Neither company will tell the sender who picked up the cash, at what store location or even in what country your money walked out the door. Neither company has any kind of refund policy, money sent is money gone forever. Now that you have responded to a scammer, you are on his 'potential sucker' list, he will try again to separate you from your cash. He will send you more emails from his other free email addresses using another of his fake names with all kinds of stories of great jobs, lottery winnings, millions in the bank and desperate, lonely, sexy singles. He will sell your email address to all his scamming buddies who will also send you dozens of fake emails all with the exact same goal, you sending them your cash via Western Union or moneygram. Whenever suspicious or just plain curious, google everything, website addresses, names used, companies mentioned, phone numbers given, all email addresses, even sentences from the emails as you might be unpleasantly surprised at what you find already posted online. You can also post/ask here and every scam-warner-anti-fraud-busting site you can find before taking a chance and losing money to a scammer. If you google "Cameroon pet scam", "fake puppy sale scam Western Union" or something similar you will find hundreds of posts from victims and near-victims of this type of scam. There are sites where you can look up pictures and find the site or sites where the scammer stolen the cute pictures of the puppies.
  • In general, if you have to ask whether or not something is a scam, it probably is. Especially when foreign countries are involved. If you take this "offer", you will be out $50 and however much else they can get out of you for whatever hidden fees they make up, and you will never see the puppies. This is one of the big reasons why you should never pay for a dog you can't meet first, the other reason being that, even supposing the dog did exist, you have no way of knowing whether or not its temperament is right for your household or whether or not it's healthy. If someone really needs to rehome their pet so urgently that they can't just wait until they find someone they feel they can trust, or if they just don't care where the animal goes, then they are not going to go through all the trouble of international shipping when they can just drop the animal off at the nearest shelter.
  • Didn't need to read it all to know that this is a scam. I had this with one of my dogs. They contacted me asking for them to be shipped. 1. You may think your be getting a dog but you might not. 2. You don't know what sort of condition their in. 3. They could be a dangerous trained breed. 4. Never ever trust a breeder who wants to ship live animals EVER.
  • When searching for our Aussie, we were scammed out of $1000 via western union. It doesn't sound like a scam to me, but for the rest of the people's judgements, I would say so. Make sure that you know where the airport is that the person is giving the puppies to to ship. Send the money there instead, if you can.
  • Yes scam do not give any of your personal information out the best thing to do would to reply to the email saying you little **** head scammers do something better with your life.
  • Yes, this is a classic Cameroon scam
  • sounds like it, If she is not willing to call you, or tell you where she is, or let you deal with the company directly concerning payment for shipping (call the company yourself, not let her hand the phone to them if you can get her to call you or let you call her) then it probably is.
  • Did not read it all did not need to yes its a scam .
  • I wouldn't trust it I dnt buy animals unless I can see them or show me proof be careful
  • scam
  • I usually say it will take 100 - 300 hours to trace most of your lines (75%) back to 1850 for white people, 1870 for black ones. Those are the years they started recording entire families on the census. (Slaves didn't count as real people until 1865, sadly; the first time they were recorded by name was 1870.) It can be done professionally, but the cheapest rate I've seen is $25 per hour. $50 is more like it. If you have some money to spend (most people here want to trace their family "FOR FREE" and think county clerks have nothing better to do with their tax dollars but put birth, marriage and death records on-line), buy a year's subscription to Ancestry.com and start digging. You don't learn much about people, unless you happen to find an obituary or a paid biography in a county history; the census, however, will tell you where they were living, where they were born, and their occupation. Your public library (but not in cash-strapped California) may have an ancestry subscription. You may be able to find a poor but honest widow through the county genealogy society or a Mormon church's Family History Center who would be willing to work for cash under the table. If you attend a church, one of your fellow parishioners might be willing to do some work for you. I offer my services every year at our church's service auction, in fact. This is a win-win; you write out a check for, say, $500 to the church building fund, a poor but honest widow gets the credit for the donation, you get a 20-page report of your ancestors. Ancestry.com, which is normally honest, offers a book about your surname for $29.99. You get the surname history ("Johnson means 'son of John' and is found in . . ."), a list of famous people named Johnson, and sometimes a list of a thousand or two Johnsons from the phone books in the USA - some might be your cousins. It is a cheat. Don't fall for it. The only fair way to pay a genealogist is by the hour. And, they may strike out. They usually don't, but anytime one promises you results or no payment, put one hand on your wallet and back away, slowly, without taking your eyes off of his/her hands.
  • I am fifteen four months old, and live in Los Angeles County, California. what can I do to get a summer job? Any websites/links to help me? and by the way: I am more than qualified for any type of job. I have a 4.33 GPA, was Freshman Class President last year, am an active member of Key Club (community service), and was on my high school's soccer team. So ya, I'm not just the average Joe trying to accrue some income... thanks for the help
  • i know it can be hard for a kid your age to find work. i found this free website, it's great. i make a lot of extra cash just filling out easy free surveys. anyone any age anywhere can do it, and it doesn't cost you a dime. check out http://tinyurl.com/6py28o for some more information.
  • You need a work permit from your high school at 15 1/2.
  • In California, you shld be at least 15 1/2 of age at the time you apply for a Provisional Permit. If you meet the minimum age requirement, these are the documents you need to submit to the DMV: 1. Certificate of Completion of Driver Education. - Usually colored Blue or Pink. 2. Certificate of Enrollment in Driver Training. - You do not have to start or complete this training program. It is sufficient enough that you are enrolled. 3. The Original Copy or Certified True Copy of your Birth Certificate - This should be the document that was issued by the County Recorders Office NOT the Certificate issued by the Hospital. A Photo copy or Xerox copy will not be accepted. OR A valid US Passport - DMV can accept an expired Passport but not a Cancelled one. 4. Social Security Card - You do not have to bring the actual SS Card but you have to know your SS Number. DMV will not process your application without your SS Number. 5. DMV Form DL 44 - Your School may have this form but you can always ask for one at your nearest DMV Office. - Section 8 of the form must be signed by BOTH parents if they have joint custody over you, OR one parent who has sole custody OR your Legal Guardian. 6. The Fee for a Provisional Permit is $28.00 - DMV accepts CASH, CHECK or DEBIT/ATM The 2009 Drivers Manual or Handbook is available at any DMV Office, I Suggest that you also get the Parent-Teen Training Guide which is also available for free at any DMV Office. For faster service, schedule an appointment by going to the DMV website (www.dmv.ca.gov) Lastly, I hope that this checklist will help and guide you in your pursuit of a Provisional Permit. Good Luck and I hope that you will have a pleasant experience at the DMV.
  • The questions on the test are all fairly basic. If you've paid attention to your parents driving you should get at least half of them right. Stop by your local DoT and pick up a learner's permit study book. It's going to give you 10x the information that will be on the test. And if you fail the first time, don't be upset. I failed it my first time and came close to failing it when I had to retake it (after losing my license). Plus if you do fail, you can just memorize which ones you got wrong (they'll show you and give you the correct answer) and go back the next day to retake it :) Good luck
  • I can only tell you about my state (NC), but here, you can take driver's ed at 14 1/2, and assuming you pass that, you go to the DMV and take a written test for your permit (here, you have to pass driver's ed to get your permit). Then at 16 you can go and take your written and road tests to get your license. If you go to your state DMV website, you should be able to find all the information on what exactly you need to do.
  • what I dont appreciate is that their are people that pissed me off because some immigrants have like 5 kids and have medical for themselves + the kids .. why them ? why?? For example I am married and no I'm not rich and NO I DO NOT HAVE KIDS I am going to school first =).. AND i cannot receive free medical WHY because I am married and dont have kids .. LIKE WTF isnt medical suppose to reward me or give me food stamps cause i dont have kids LOL Not everyone but yes their are many that lie and get so much stuff 4 free that is not fair for the ones that were born here!!! Their are familys that yes need the help but some of them dont really need the help + in many cases many immigrants get paid cash so they dont put in there taxes COMMON PEOPLE!! plus lets not mention what else they get free +wik +food stamps +housing Do you think a new governor would be able to change that? as far as investigation from Social Workers checking if a family REALLY DOES QUALIFY.. California
  • We need to get them out and they are leaving according to this link. Our young people are not able to receive general assistance because of budget cuts in social services. You have to be nearly dead to qualify for medical assistance, and there is absolutely no dental care.
  • They tell us that life in Mexico is crummy.. they had to come here. No one agrees with that idea.. but here they are. And because they don't speak English, in spite of having an I.D. that calls them George Harrison, they are entitled to the welfare. Nice racket huh. It sucks for the taxpayers... it is glorious for the dead beats.
  • I think they should be able to. I really want our nation overrun with immigrants who have nothing to offer except more kids. That would be so much fun!
  • This blows my mind 100% they get everything while guys like you and I have to work to make sure that they get everything!
  • I rent a room in a home in California. I gave my notice and was in the process of moving out. I do not believe on leaving my "dirt" behind so I got all my personal belongings out 2 days prior to the the last day that was agreed upon on paper (sep 30). I got a cleaning service to clean the room and the bathroom on the 29th and I had a carpet cleaning company ready to come in on the 30th to clean the carpets. I got to the house after I got out of work early to meet the carpet cleaning crew at 4:00 pm and I could not get in! I called my landlady/homeowner and she told me I could not get in after she left for work at 3:30 pm. Can she do that? She knew I planned to have it all cleaned. I told her when I gave her notice. She is now locking me out and left some of my cleaning supplies I left in case of emergency (not sure if I can trust the cleaning team) out in the driveway and stating that she will use my deposit to do it herself and when I asked her for the recites of the cleaning she said she is not legally bound to give or show them to me. Can she do that? So here it is again...can she lock me out? and can she hold my deposit and not verify what she uses it for?
  • If it's in your lease to be out by Sept 30 before 4, then yes. If not, she cannot legally lock you out. Also, it is illegal to deduct from a security deposit without itemizing each deduction and providing a copy to you. You also have the right to dispute charges on a security deposit receipt and can take unjust charges to court. If you don't get your full security deposit back, you should tell tell her right away, and in writing that you disagree with the charges. You should keep a copy of the letter, and if you have a check, wait to deposit it. You should also tell your landlord in your letter that you have not yet cashed the check because you disagree with the amount.
  • Yes, by the letter of the law she can do that - you are supposed to hand in your keys - and have everything "broom clean" by 12 midnight of the the 30th. That doesn't mean that you have until midnight to get the place in order! You are not required to clean the carpet - and even if you did - she could claim it wasn't clean enough for the next tenant. (you would need her to walk through the apartment (room) and agree that everything was OK - and you would have needed a witness with you at that time also. If this Room is REGISTERED as a rental (which I doubt) most homeowners do not bother to get a city license - and she probably doesn't declare the income from the rent on her income taxes - You can notify her that you intend to take her to small claims court (it costs 18.00) to file - and watch her pony up the "last months rent - or whatever she held in escrow" real quick. A legitimate landlord or management company has 30 days to send a receipt for any monies it used to return an Apartment to rent-able condition, along with funds it didn't use.
  • She may be able to lock you out depending on what your agreed time on paper was. If you agreed to be out by the end of the business day on September 30, than 3:30 is the end of the business day for your landlord. Your landlord cannot legally withhold any portion of your security deposit without providing you an itemized statement of why money is being withheld. If she does keep some of your deposit and does not provide you with documentation that the place was actually cleaned (a copy of the receipt), you need to sue her the amount of the deposit withheld and any punitive damages allowed in your state.
  • just make sure she doesn't charge you for that time, send her an email stating that you made an attempt to finish cleaning but the locks were changed, get her response and sue her if she charge you.
  • Being a notary certainly helps as far as a resume is concerned. Almost every business has a need for a notary at one time or another, so it is convenient to have one on staff. As far as earnings are concerned, think of it as a part-time side job... you probably will not retire on your notary earnings, but you should be able to make some extra cash in your free time. Each state has its own requirements to become a notary, so you may want to check with an organization like NotaryOfAmerica: http://www.NotaryOfAmerica.comto see what is required in your state. Each state also has a maximum amount you can charge. In California it's $10.
  • To become a Notary Public in the USA is not a career opportunity. You should be getting trained in an occupation for which there is a high demand - something in the Medical Field for example.
  • some places do it for loose, others can charge a nominal fee. it is going to can charge you below $10 for the three varieties, else you have become screwed. Hospitals consistently have a notary available, as do funeral residences. Banks, post workplaces and Licensing amenities are a great wager, too. or you are able to look it up on your interior of sight telephone e book.
  • You can use Wikipedia to determine what a notary public is. It is not something that you can make a living at.

  • I dropped off the keys to my old apt 05/30, and a week ago I got my return deposit. They charged me for an additional 10 days of rental, and a penalty for defaulting on that rent. They're trying to claim I put in my notice late, even though I was obviously out of the house before the 1st... In fact, they ordered their cleaning service the day after I dropped off my keys (05/31-- it's printed on the receipt they sent me). I've emailed them about it (twice now), and they're not replying to me.. I told them I would hold their check until we could come to an agreement, so I'm now a month out without ANY of my security deposit back. I'm not desperate for it, but this is kind of ridiculous. I'm worried that if I cash the check, they'll say that I accepted the amount, and they don't owe me more. I also think that they're aware that I moved across the country, and they're thinking I cant afford to sue them for the unwarranted charges... Which is kind of true. It wouldn't be worth the time and money to fly out for court. (They're in California, I'm now living in Florida.) Is there anything I can do long distance? Can I appoint someone local to meet in court in my place or something?
  • The date you were out of the house is irrelevant. When did you give them written notice that you were leaving? You seem to be avoiding saying that, or what your lease says about early termination. You have probably gotten all that you are entitled to.

  • My cousin and her husband cosigned for his brother to get out of jail because they both had jobs. They both signed the contract. The wife of the accused put up the %10 percent in cash. She was not working at the time and is now laid off due to the recession. The wife only signed a receipt for the cash payment. The accused was out on bail for 2 yrs and is now in prison. The cosigners did not know the premium renewed itself each year the defendant was out fighting the case. Of course the cosigners did not take the time to read the fine print. They were just trying to get their loved one out. Also, the bail agent never went over the contract with them before they signed it. This was their first experience with a bail bonds company. Now the bail bonds company, Bad Boys Bail Bonds, in San Jose is harassing them for the unpaid premiums. My cousin and her husband do not own a house and they are still making notes on their vehicle. The company claims they sent notices for the balance but my cousin said that is not true. Furthermore, the company said they will turn this over to the legal dept. on 12/27/09 if they do not receive a payment. What will happen to the cosigners? Will their wages be garnished? And if so, is there a certain percentage they will take out of their checks? How long will it take the company to sue them? Also, will the wife be responsible for the unpaid premium of 2 years? Is there anyway the bail bonds company can reduce the premium? It's quite high. Thx!

  • from durango, mexico. My little sister went to mexico with my mom for 3 weeks now, but she has to go back to school. My mom cant come back with her cause she's in the processes of getting a visa[thats not the problem] so here's my question: is it possible for a 10 year old to travel from Mexico [she has a US passport and everything] to the US alone? if so how? and its from Durango, Durango Mexico to Los Angeles/Ontario California please I need find out any information
  • Yes it is, my grandchildren (Americans) have done it. The child's parentt needs to call the airline you plan to use and arrange for the child to fly as an unaccompanied minor. You MUST do this by phone. You can use Continental or Mexicana if you like . Mexicana has people who speak English, just ask. you will make the arrangements and hand the child over to an assigned person at the airport to board the plane. The airline will have you fill out papers about who will meet the child on the other end. that person must provide approved I.D. There is a fee of about $70.00 for the unaccompanied minor service. That fee cannot be paid with your credit card when you pay for the ticket on the phone. It must be paid in person when you arrive at the airport...in cash. There will be a bunch of paperwork to fill out when you check the child in at the airport, so allow plenty of time.
  • 2 of the three ultimate journeys I even have ever taken in touch making use of around the U.S. (as quickly as taking I-10, the different taking I-80). the final element approximately making use of around the rustic is which you get to work out the changing panorama, geography, etc. you in addition to mght have the potential to stop and notice places may well be considered "out of how" from a considerable airport, yet that are "on the way" once you're making use of from one city to the subsequent. another suggestion for the reason which you reported the Grand Canyon; easily make it a factor topersistent via Southern Utah to work out Bryce, Zion and the different parks interior the location. have exciting!
  • I am an American citizen born and raised here. I met and "married" a Jordanian citizen. When we got married here in America it was at a local mosque where it was officiated by the clergyman, but there was no license filled and no marriage certificate offered. Three years afterwords, my "husband" was arrested on old charges (which I had no prior knowledge of) and had to spend 6 months in prison, followed by immediate deportation back to Jordan. He had been in America for almost 10 years when he was deported. I followed and moved to Jordan. While there he and his brother took me to the local Islamic Court where I was officially converted to Islam, and then married again. This time I have all the paperwork. I flew home to California with this paperwork and went to the Immigration offices in California to petition/prove my marriage to get my husband back home. The immigration official agreed to the validity of the marriage, and approved my husband's petition to re enter the US, however to this date nothing has happened. I flew back to Jordan a few months after seeing the immigration officials, and stayed there for another 3 years. Finally, after much spousal abuse on his part, I was able to leave permanently back to the US. I had never gone to Social Security, never filed taxes as married, never checked married in any boxes, never filed my marriage certificate in any local offices. 5 years ago his brother that lives in America had me sign an affidavit that said I wanted a divorce and I had all intentions of divorcing my "husband" . My ex brother in law is a shady character to begin with. He also had me sign this notice that stated my ex-husband had given me over $10,000 in cash (which he didn't, but was told "he will"). I signed these papers and was not given a copy, but was there at the notary public when I signed them. During the entire marriage, I never changed my name, filed with social security, filed my marriage certificate with any local authorities, never filed joint or married taxes. So, if I am married, where can I find this proof here in America? Can i get my marriage annulled? Is my marriage even legal in the US? It's been 5 years since I have spoken to him, he is overseas and I cannot find him. How can I file for divorce if it has been over 10 years since we separated and I cannot find him? Can I just ignore the whole thing and remarry with a clean conscious?
  • You really should contact a lawyer to take care of this. I do believe that you are married, when you came back you had the papers, so that should be enough to have the marriage legal. Just contact someone and file the papers for divorce, I don't think you will have any problem getting one. I would not just remarry because you know you did go through the service and was married.
  • if you converted to islam then you should know all the answers simples
  • I already have A crown front tooth) im getting my old one chopped of cause its getn yellow,im getn A venneer on my other front tooth aswell so It looks all good.The work is getn done in thailand,How lond does it take to make these things,ill pay the dentist extra cash tor faster service.Dont wanna be hollidaying with mong temp teeth.
  • Are your other teeth already white? as white as you would like them? It would be best to whiten them like 3-4 weeks before you do the procedure like with the whitening strips or something do it everyday as the directions say. The making of the crown here in California takes any were from 7-12 days and with the holidays maybe longer I not sure what its like there maybe you can call some family or something to go check for you good luck and member you should not whiten after crowns are made cause they do not change color so I highly encourage you to whiten before going!
  • We are tenants in a home with a One year lease that isn't up until next March but recently someone told us our lease isn't valid unless we have it registered. The place we are living recently went into Foreclosure and we need to make sure we are protected under the new law Obama passed. Is this true, is our lease invalid?
  • what does the lease have to do with Obama? You don't need to record a lease. If you want to cover yourself check out the property on cyberhomes.com once a month if the owner gets a NOD then it will show up as recent foreclosure activity or ask a local Realtor to do a title search and see if they are in foreclosure. Either way, you have a contract and if they break it then you can sue them in small claims. You can also ask the landlord to show you a current mortgage statment once a month to prove they are making the payments. This shouldn't be a big deal if they are actually paying. Another good way to find out is to have your agent do a mortgage search and find out how mucy debt service there is and calculate what the payment is likely to be including taxes and insurance....then if your rent payment is way lower then the mortgage payment you might have a problem. Most people now a days don't keep houses with negative cash flow. Good luck

  • Recording your lease will not protect you if the owner is foreclosed on. If a bank forecloses on the house you reside in you will be required to move eventually. The time just depends how fast the mortgage holder acts. I've seen it take 6 months to a year for a lender to act, but most start the eviction process within 30 days after they get the property back. Leases are valid even if they are not recorded, but the foreclosing bank is not obligated to a lease that entered into by your landlord.
  • Contracts (and a lease is a contract) are valid when signed by both parties. It is usually industrial and commercial leases that are recorded - these are typically 10-year leases, or more. Even many commercial leases, especially smaller or shorter-term ones, are not recorded. Nobody pays recording fees and mucks about with all this recording with the town clerk's office for a measly little one-year apartment/house lease! Too expensive. Waste of time & money.
  • The mechanics artwork like this. First, you document a return interior the state the place your condo aspects is, and pay the tax. Then once you document the return on your abode state, you get a "credit for tax paid to a diverse state," so which you at the instant are not paying two times. In consequence, it oftentimes works out the place you're paying tax to the state with the optimal tax cost. unfortunately, Texas does not have an earnings tax, so which you will not document and pay earnings tax on the condo earnings. you will choose 0 credit for tax paid to a diverse state, so it won't make any difference on your CA return. it is probably why the FTB instructed you you should pay CA taxes even even with the undeniable fact that the valuables is in Texas. you're taxed on all your earnings in in spite of state you reside in no rely the place it fairly is earned, then you definately subtract any perfect credit. No TX tax, so TX would be irrelevant at tax time.

  • All 3 previous answerers are absolutely correct. If you have income in the U.S. of over $1200 a month, but do not have a bank account, how are you going to access that money if you are living in Mexico? If you think the source of your income can just "mail" it to you...no that is actually a terrible idea...mail is NOT reliable..andyou would not be able to cash the check in Mexico. You need a bank account in the U.S. in a bank that has a Mexican partner bank...like Bank of America is partners with Santander and Citibank is partners with Banamex. Then you can use your ATM card to get money out as needed in Mexico. I don't understand how you are curently getting along without a bank account, but if you want an FM3, you do need to get one now. If you are retired, the Citibank in Los Angeles ( used to be called California Commerce) has an "Amistad " program for retirees. You open a checking account with them and get a bi-national ATM card. There are NO fees of any kind ever and you can use their services in both countries...works great...and you do not have to live in L.A. If you need more detais, email me.
  • The F.M.3 requirements are very strict and if you cant satisfy the immigration you will be turned down.. You will have to provide anything you have that would indicate a monthly min of $1200.00 per month or twelve times that in your bank. The FM 3 must be renewed every year and the same proof is needed
  • FM3 visas are stickt. I have one. Are you married? you can use your husbands stuff but he must write a letter in spanish stating that you are financially dependent of him. If you dont, do you have someone who you are financially dependent on? they too can write a letter in spanish stating that you are dependent on them and show either payment stubs from work for a whole year or the 3 bank statements.
  • This is a very strict rule! Here in Quintana Roo you must provide 3-months of statements and if they are not in Spanish they must be translated into Spanish by an "official translator."
  • I'll start of by saying we are native so californians, not used to snowy/slippery/foggy weather. will be in Columbus next week (thanksgiving) and have decided to drive to Disney World from there. My driving app tells me to take the I-77, but after further investigation I got a bit nervous in regards to the possible iffy weather. ...we plan to leave tues 11/24 at night, so will be driving through the middle of the night. Please, if anyone can give any advice i will gladly take it. ...Also, both the I-77 and the I-75 are toll roads -- how do we go about this? so far i know it's cash only, but where do we pay? are there turn-offs to pay the tolls? are there marked signs? ...sorry, i feel a bit dumb with all these questions, but have never driven or even visited this part of the U.S., and even more worried in the possible snowier months. ..Please help.
  • a couple more questions to add -- 1) are there enough 24hr gas stations on this road? ...i don't trust swiping my card outside at the gas pump (have had card # stolen twice over here in california while doing so), from then on i always go inside the station to pay. 2) we'll be using our phone gps, but how's the signal through the mountain ranges? we'll purchase paper map as well, but just wondering ahead of time.
  • You aren't likely to encounter snowy weather and bad roads in November, especially in that part of the country. If you did, it would be a highly unusual storm. Use an app, like AccuWeather or Weather Channel, to get weather forecasts and updates. You can pay cash at the tolls. The tollbooths are just located on the road - everyone slows down, stops at the toll and pays, and then goes on. There are separate lanes for cash only and for EZ-Pass (an electronic payment system that people get when they travel frequently through tolls). There will be signs ahead of time alerting you to the upcoming toll and indicating which lanes are where. The toll booths themselves are clearly marked. EDIT: There will be plenty of options for gas along that route. You'll be passing through a lot of busy and populated areas, so you shouldn't have trouble finding a gas station that is open when you need it. Cell service should also be fine for most, if not all, of your route. That does depend on your carrier though. I have AT&T and don't recall any areas where we didn't have a signal on that route. There may have been a few places though. Instead of buying a paper map, get the directions from Google Maps or something and print them out as a backup.
  • i'd say you're worrying way too much about the small stuff. you should not encounter much if any bad weather during this time of year and the area you're driving. use whatever weather app you prefer to use normally. many people like acuweather. i also wouldn't worry too much about your card number being stolen. as i usually have done most driving during the day and not the middle of the night i'm not sure of how many gas stations are open for you to pay inside 24/7. your phone signal is gonna depend on your carrier and whether they have good coverage in that area or not. if you have verizon they have very good coverage. i know that many people in the west like t-mobile and i can tell you that that company does not have all that great of coverage throughout the country so if you have that carrier you may encounter more signal problems. as for tolls they are right on the road. there are signs ahead of time alerting you that a toll is coming up and how much it is going to cost. some toll booths are manned so that you don't need exact change but some are automated so you'll need the exact amount. i would highly suggest bringing some dollar bills and a variety of change and keeping it close by to pay the tolls.
  • I recently went to MEPS and after 3 continuous days I was able to get my NAVY CTN rate that I so badly wanted. I have a clean background; I've been cleared for a California Guard Card twice and worked for the LA Sheriffs Department for 2 years which required an extensive background check. My problem is that I was recently Laid- Off from my job as an Intern at a Financial firm. 2 other employees were also let go but they were more disgruntled and decided to delete contact lists, company files, marketing material on their computers before leaving. I left on good terms, but just a few days ago I received a notice from my previous employer that "I had attempted/proceeded to delete company files on my computer, though everything was recovered." It's completely unfounded as I left my computer untouched after I was given the notice to leave the premises. The letter I received was from the In-House legal attorney claiming that I had 'attempted' to do this though theres no real evidence to support their claims and they admitted that everything was recovered. My question is how should proceed after receiving this notice and will this affect my background investigation for Top Secret clearance because I consider it to be 'defamation of character' and 'libel'? I have a clean background, no drug usage, good credit and feel that this minor accusation may lead to problems during my background investigation. Can anyone out there help me?
  • Red, the responder above is absolutely CORRECT and she deserves the 10 points here. I would merely add that when you send the letter to your former employer you address it directly to the Department and/or Department Head from which it came. That you send it Certified mail with a return receipt showing specifically "who signed for the letter and date". Also, retain the purchase receipt from the U.S. Post Office as well - you will do this in the event this thing turns out mean later and DO NOT lose any of this. Sign your letter in Blue Ink as an ensurance that the signature is in a different color from the type set within the letter (black ink is difficult anymore to determine as to whether the the letter is an original signed or copy; Blue Ink will dispell any considerations should this matter later proceed to a court). This is both a defamation of character and is definitely libelous. I also recommend that while you still have the account fresh in your memory you record on paper (word document on the computer) every single step you took from the time you realized you were being released from your former employer until the day you left; make/create a journal as well from memory as to the time you arrived in the office and the times of your likely breaks and then departure of the day (this goes NOWHERE but to your files). This too is an insurance to the fact that you assume the worst (that it ends up in court) and keep the detailed account merely for YOUR records. The letter to the former employer should not be more than 3 paragraphs with a courteous beginning and ending (you are assuming this all ends up in front of attorneys and a court of where it matters). The matter will likely be corrected but you will trust NO ONE who is currently employed with the company and you will talk to NO ONE who is currently employed there either within the course of this activity. This will not affect your TS with the Navy but be prepared that you may have to submit your detailed account of the event that you made (or will make) for your records. In this case I would do two versions; one that is considered for courts with greater detail and the other that proves your innocence in order to convince your future clearance level. TS levels are tough to come by these days; Post 9/11 the detail is/can be excrutiating. Not gaining the TS as a result of your former employer should automatically set the "alarm off". If this is the case then you WILL FOIA request your investigation to prove it was your former employer that caused this to be incurred by you; you will then consult with several different attorneys to discuss (rates can be up to $225 per hour and these normally last a 1/2 hour; be prepared to speak in short cursory and effective sentences and pay the rate up front with cash; ask for receipts from all you visit). All the best and thank you for your service! Semper Fidelis, Gerry D.
  • In the short run, I'd write a well-worded and polite but succinct letter to the attorney at your former employer explaining that you had done no such thing and that you consider the unfounded accusation defamation of your character which could have bearing on your future employability and earnings, and that you would highly appreciate if they would drop any record of such an accusation from your file, if they have retained one on you. Request that they let you know when they have done so. Don't go all out and threaten a lawsuit or anything unless you have a good lawyer buddy. The letter should suffice. Keep a copy of both the original notice and your response to it for your records. In the long run, as far as your clearance goes, there is room on the application form to explain out exactly what happened. Yes, they will check in with each of your employers, but they understand that your employer will only tell one side of a story and that people do get accused of things they haven't done. You'll likely be fine. Just keep those copies with you and submit them with the application if necessary.
  • right it incredibly is the plus part Mike; you're saying you probably did a number of this from 18-21 and that i've got seen a individual get a secret clearance with economic irresponsibility because of the fact they found out that they had tousled on credit enjoying cards, have been given way in over their head and prevented dealing with it for a quick volume of time. They then found out their blunders and had began paying on those undesirable bills in the previous they ever were put in a place that required them getting a clearance. because of the fact they might teach a historic past of that and how that they had have been given their existence back so as and on-music they have been given one after a while. A good secret clearance may well be so plenty extra problematic and probability is against you for that reason to boot as your recruiter having you lie on the workplace work and you going alongside with it. it is the destructive part of this and on a similar time as you have been purely doing what your recruiter informed you to do he grew to become into incorrect to try this to boot incorrect to have you ever do what you probably did. Recruiters like that are between the excuses why you won't be able to believe all of them and what they say and do and why some human beings have such destructive critiques of them. in case you won't be able to show a enormously good attempt and previous historic past on paying issues that alongside with what the different aspects right here incredibly places you in a topic of only approximately no probability in any respect of having a TS clearance. maximum jobs although require purely a secret clearance so as that must be on your want and you ought to success out. on a similar time the human beings who make those judgements do no longer stay in a vacum and understand that Michigan has had plenty turmoil econmically because of the lack of jobs and industry.
  • Ohbrother, there has been no mention of money being wired to me, nor has there any instructions to cash any check to send to anyone anywhere. I'm not saying that this is a for real deal. But I'm in need of known facts about this organization, and any proof that you can shed on this will be most helpful. I'm not saying that your years of experience is not accurate. I just want positive facts about this companys' practicies. Any light would be most helpful.
  • For Gods sake your asking about the United Nations and asking if I have dealt with"this company". Yeah, my tax dollars more than any other member country goes to support their lottery program.

Don't take my word or anyone else's word. You go for it. I have found in life that experience is a wonderful teacher. So what I have included in my answer are the list of lotteries that you can join from inquires I received last week.

Go to the U.N. website and search for U.N. Lottery and ask how you can collect your winnings. Also you state in your original question that they want you to send money to them. Then above you claim there has been no menition of sending any money. Which is it.

If you do no one is going to able to get through to you. The U.N.is corrupt, but not so corrupt that they are going to give money to any poor smuck that isn't connected to them politically. Go to the U.N. website and search for U.N. Lottery and ask how you can collect your winnings. Also you state in your original question that they want you to send money to them. Then above you claim there has been no menition of sending any money. Which is it.
  • Alright so, my friend already has one baby (who's 2) she is 19. Her current issue is that she is pregnant again and cant afford a second child. (I don't want to hear ANY crap about how she cant take care of her kid, because she can) We talked about how I could adopt her second. I'd be 20 by the due date, I'm single, and I have a stable job with a good (actually, great) income. I can afford to take care of this baby and I'm willing/want to. My question is, can I, legally adopt this child in the state of California?
  • i live in CA too and its a big maybe. the court was reluctant to give me guardianship of a girl who had been living with me for 2 1/2 years already and who i knew for over 5 years just because i was only 23 at the time. i don't qualify to adopt her because my income is low and i can't afford the fees (last i checked it would be around 5 grand without a lawyer but as much of the law i learned i would say you need a lawyer). also there is the fact that you need the fathers consent too otherwise it could take years to finalize the adoption fighting to terminate his rights and at any point it could fall through and you eat the loss financially. you would do better to bring her to your local human services dept she will qualify for much more as a household of 3. food/medical/cash/child care/ its all there and easy to get. also you might look for a pregnancy crisis center like in my area that gives free clothes/diapers/ cribs etc to any one who asks regardless of income.
  • Are you ready to lose your friendship? How do you think she will feel when her child who looks like her sister calls you mom? You need to help her to support her by babysitting when she works, seeking benefits, ask church etc. Your goal should be that your friend does not have to give up her child. Legally you can adopt if you pass the home study assuming the agency think you are old enough (it's legal from 18 but they prefer you be 21-25). Most likely is she relieved the child will be close to her instead of in a closed adoption but she will be grieving her child and it's your obligation as her friend to help her to keep it. That should be your priority, not to take her child away. You are not doing her a favor.
  • She could give legal custody to anyone over the age of 18. Legally, sure. But make sure you're ready to ALWAYS have her be a part of your life. She will always be the mother of that child, always have her blood coursing through it's veins, etc. But you should let her know that there are TONS of contraceptives out there and she should learn how to use them.
  • Please have her check out the program Safe Families for Children. It provides a way for her to have her child/children temporarily taken care of in a safe home while she gets her life in order, while SHE maintains all legal custody. It is available in CA.
  • Talk to a lawyer. If both parties are willing and can agree it should be pretty easy. Good luck!
  • Don't take responsibility for another person's mistake, is the way I look at it.
  • MEXICO CITY — Mexico's National Human Rights Commission said Monday it is sending inspectors to U.S. border crossings to monitor deportations that might result if Arizona's new immigration law goes into effect as planned Thursday. The law is being challenged by the U.S. government in court, but the federal judge hearing the case hasn't indicated whether she might agree to the challenge's request that the measure be put on hold. The government's rights commission said monitors will be stationed at border gates in Tijuana across from California, Nogales next to Arizona and Ciudad Juarez and Reynosa across from Texas to ensure migrants are treated properly. "The implementation of the Arizona Law SB1070 represents a threat to migrants' full exercise of their human rights," the commission said in a statement. "The law violates the principles of nondiscrimination, equality before the law and freedom from arbitrary arrest." Arizona officials say the law contains safeguards against discriminatory actions in getting tough with illegal immigrants. The law requires police, while enforcing other laws, to check a person's immigration status if there is a reasonable suspicion the person is in the U.S. illegally. It also bans people from blocking traffic when they seek or offer day-labor services on streets and prohibits illegal immigrants from soliciting work in public places. Opponents say the law will lead to racial profiling and trample on the rights of hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants in Arizona. Supporters contend the law is a necessary response to combat a litany of problems they blame on illegal immigration and the federal government's inability to secure the border. Mexico's Interior Department said Interior Secretary Francisco Blake met with U.S. Ambassador Carlos Pascual on Monday to express his support for the Obama administration's challenge to the law. On another matter involving migrants, Blake stressed that Mexico wants an adequate investigation of the deaths of two Mexican citizens in incidents involving U.S. Border Patrol officers in May and June. He asked that "cooperation on this issue be strengthened to prevent such incidents in the future," his office said. http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/arti...
  • Wow the most corrupted planet on earth is going to police the Mexico border to ensure their people are treated fairly at the same time Mexico does not cracks down on human smugglers, drug smugglers, abusing all the people in it's country or their police.The country is about to collapse from the drug cartel running Mexico into the ground.Thousands of people have died and Mexico has the time and the people to switch off from all their problems and police the border.Is there enough honest watchers to send.For a bribe these guys will indicate they saw this,that. Mexico is still harping on those drug smugglers who broke the laws and this their attempt to cash in on and send a message what will happen to anyone who dare to stop a illegal Mexican from entering America. I am sick and tried of Mexico.Why don't they start working to fix their country instead of worrying about our country. Just you go to Mexico be illegal and see for yourself all the discriminatory actions in getting tough with illegal immigrants.They beat them,shoot them,shake them dowm,rob them and they want to come across as experts on human rights.
  • What the hell? I love how they are such hypocrites about this subject when we know they are the ones who rape, abuse, and kill their central american illegals. The messycans are just waisting their cartel money on this. They should have invested in clean drinking water instead. What a joke!
  • They are on the wrong end of Mexico if they are concerned about human rights violations on the border.
  • I think that is is excellent. Maybe we could get them to look at this video. YouTube on Mexican Illegals http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F7gFbQgCe...In addition, we need to insure each of the Mexican National complainants have a polygraph to insure they are not lying.
  • Mexico needs to send its 'Human Rights Inspectors' to its businesses that many exploit its workers.
  • Mexico doesn't need to worry about American policy period. Mexico sucks, why else would people be trying to leave.

  • My husband is finishing his duty here in Washington---coming back from A-school in a few weeks. We are being relocated to Florida. I know the military wont ship our car to Florida, and we could drive, but last time--we drove from Georgia to WA in the dead of winter and we got extremely sick- both of us-and our (then) newborn. It was horrible! I get car sick easy, and so does our 3 year old. we have 2 dogs so lodging with them along the way is tough, if we gave them away, our little girl would be crushed! and not to mention putting all those miles on our car. Airfare from WA to Georgia is around $400 per person--plus $100 per dog, AND we'd have to pay an additional $1000 to have our car shipped. SO HERES AN IDEA I HAD--- and please let me know your thoughts. I was talking with another military wife and she said her and her husband pretended they were going to drive--so the CG paid them as if they were going to drive--when in reality, they used that money to fly and have their car shipped. She said a lot of military couples do that. She said all we would have to do is get the car weighed before we leave and once we arrive at our location to make it look like we drove. ---and about hotel reciepts-- she said that we could just say we were keeping them all in a ziploc bag but we lost it..... It is very tempting because of what hell on earth it was to drive diagonal across the country in winter last time. And money is so tight because Im starting my own business online--- our car is great, so it would be really tough to try and sell our car really quick before we leave and hope to find another one of good quality that we could afford. I want to know if what she said is true-- do a lot of military couples do this? Like I said-- I was just thinking about it. Thanks :)
  • They committed fraud. Just because they got away with it does not mean you will. If you do not have receipts they can ask to see your credit card statement. Or are you going to try to say you paid cash for everything? Yeah, right. You get one day for every 350 miles of distance. It would be a good opportunity to see the USA so why not use it? If you drive south from Washington to I40 in California you will only have two days to contend with winter weather. Another day south and you could drive across on I20 or I10. If you fly, the service pays the bill for each of you and your kid. Small dogs can be "carry on." You can ship your car or you can find someone who wants to drive and hire them to drive the car and take the dogs. Do not commit fraud or your husband may find his military career is over before it even gets started. (Have you checked on taking the train? Seattle to Chicago to the east coast and down the coast to Florida.)
  • Hi, im a defense paralegal in the air force. I am not an expert on the tmo/travel payment process. I always drive when i pcs. However, it seems u are under the understanding that u have to be sneaky and lie multiple times in order to move the way u want to...if that is the case and u get caught...oh btw military people read this and u never know if somone at that base will...if u want ur husband to take the chance and possibly get an article 15, court martial or discharge then go right ahead and be dishonest...u should do the right thing, even if it is not the easiest way, the air force way is never the easy way. Ur husband will get paid 1-3k for dislocation allowance when u move, its been 4 years since my last pcs i cant remeber how much it was but it was a nice amount. Have ur husband talk to his first shirt an explain the issues ur family is facing with the move. Good luck.
  • I don't know why you would need to weigh your car. You HAVE to turn in receipts or you don't get reimbursed. What you are suggesting is committing fraud, in a major way. If you can't handle the drive, then have your hubby make the drive and you fly with the children. Then everything is above board, you get your way, and the gov't does not get cheated out of money. The military pays quite a bit to it's active duty members to offset the cost of moving. How you spend the money to get from point A to point B is up to you. And if it means you end up spending money out of pocket, then that is your choice. Going to Europe we spent about $5000 out of pocket. (2nd car and 2 pets) Our choice. We weighed the options and it was the best for our family. It hurt, but we made sacrifices and made it work. Just as a reminder...your hubby signed up and agreed to support the core values of the Navy, which are Honor, Courage, and Commitment. Would what you are suggesting fall in line with the core values??
  • WARNING" If anyone in command finds out about it, your husband could be charged with a violation of Article 132 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice (Frauds against the United States). If convicted, the penalty could include reduction to the lowest enlisted grade, total forfeiture of all pay and allowances, confinement for 5 years, and a dishonorable discharge. If you think command is unfamiliar with people trying this particular end-run, think again. Former soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines have pulled this stunt and have been caught. We caught a case last year at Vandenberg AFB -- the guy who did it is still rotting away in a cell at the Air Force Discplinary Center at Kirtland AFB. So ask yourself: Is it worth your husband going to jail, losing his job, and probably never being able to get a decent job again for the sake of personal convenience?
  • As a tax payer and veteran, I am not going to advise you on how to scam my tax dollars from the government. Pony up the dough like a decent and honest person and ship your car. To ensure you do so, I'm going to research who you are and send this screen shot to his unit. You've practically got your life story posted on YA and facebook, so I expect it to take all of 5 minutes. I will, however, advise you on being the type of person your husband deserves: Stop being such a skeevy tag chaser. Your posts on YA have been nothing but looking for ways to get more money out of the government by leeching off your husband's career. YOU ARE NOT IN THE MILITARY. You just ride a dick that is. Get your own identity (and your own money) and stop trying to live vicariously through your husband. He's a big boy. He can manage his own money, his own moving expenses, and his own life. Get your grubby hands out of it. Show your appreciation by not being such a parasite and getting a life of your own. That way you're not only worth keeping around, but he knows you're there with him because you want to be, not because you don't have the education, skills, experience, resources, etc., to go anywhere else and just need his money.
  • Some do that and get away with it, while others do it and get caught. You do have another option actually. You get a friend or family member to go with your spouse while he drives with the dogs and your stuff. You and the child fly down. He will get the mileage (MALT) for the drive and Per Diem (for HIM only for the days he drives and for you/child on the 1 day you fly).
  • Lots of people don't do that.................................you... find out that it will cost more shipping dogs and kids. Damn thieves...........................
  • If the baby is born in Mexico, you need to be prepared to pay a private doctor and hospital in CASH there is no free medical care for visitors and private doctors are paid at time of service and hospitals require you to pay the estimated cost before they accept you.. If the baby is premature, you need to know few hospitals in Mexico are equipped to care for preemies. If you do have the baby there, you most certainly can NOT fly the next day. NO airline will allow a baby less than at least 7 days old to fly. You would need to consult a doctor when it would be ok for you and the baby to fly....Of course you would not be able to fly with the baby til the baby received an American passport from the embassy in Mexico city or the nearest consulate. You must go to the embassy or a consulate within a few weeks after the baby is born and register the birth. This establishes and documents the baby's American citizenship and you can get the baby a passport at the embassy or consulate. The baby will NOT be allowed on the plane without an American passport. Most airlines will not let you fly at 34 or more weeks pregnant. You need to call your airline and check. You should also have your doctor's permission. Need to think all this through carefully. it could bd very complicated and time-consuming...as well as risky for the baby.
  • I believe that they must be ready to consult with and hold the youngster. I feel it's going to handiest makes things worse in the event that they find out you most effective want them to seem at the baby by means of the nursery window. That could some thing that i am certain you don't want to . It is going to generally purpose you extra stress considering the fact that they are going to make an effort to make your existence extra depressing in the event that they believe you are trying to make an effort to make theirs miserable. For the sake of the youngster, i would not attempt to use the baby to hurt them. Let that youngster be adored through anyone who wants to love it. Even if you don't love the humans who will adore it. Additionally, how would you feel if it used to be the other way round. In case your household hated your husband and so he insisted that they are not allowed to look your baby. Do not forget it took two to make the youngster. It's your husbands little one as good, and that is your youngster's grandma and grandpa and so forth. Like I mentioned, that child deserves the love of someone who wishes to present him/her love. You do not have to be false or high-quality, but do not use your youngster to try and harm them. It is no longer fair to your husband both. He's customarily having a rough time with every person no longer getting alongside and is probably feeling caught within the core.
  • Why not wait a couple of more weeks. Then when you do go you'll be more relaxed. If your driving from far, you might have her on the road. If you do have her in Mexicali. Then you'll have to go to the U.S.A. Consolado, to straighten out your issues. PURO CACHANILLA
  • Charlie nailed it as she normally does. You cannot be reimbursed for the expenses by many insurance companies and definitely Medicaid. Your doctor knows you and your unborn child's condition, your Mexican doctor will not. Medical emergencies are handled better in most U.S. hospitals than in many Mexican hospital.
  • I used to work with Agent A whose co gives 20% cashback from his commission. If I buy a house for 240K, I will get $1400 cashback. But he doesn't really help me negotiate maybe he gets less $. I change to Agent B who I get nothing back but more helpful. Also he told me that everything is negotiable, so I feel like even I don't get cash back from him but he can help me negotiate for a better price, it's still worthy. So when Agent B shows me houses, I found two I like. House A is our 1st priority House B is 2nd. (He didn't find tem. I checked them out from MLS and said I want to see them.) But when I submit offer, Agent B can't help me negotiate because there are already a few offers so we have to bid higher if we want it. I told him we put at least 20% down, can we at least ask the bank for incentive? He keeps on telling me the chance is low, the more I ask, the bank won't even look at my offer. Eventually, we didn't get House A because someone else has offers a much higher price.
  • We want to submit offer for House B. But I feel like since Agent B can't help me negotiate for a better price, if I have to buy the house at the asking price, why don't I go back to Agent A, at least I will get one thousand dollar back. So my question is: Is it all right for me to switch back to Agent A even though Agent B is the one who shows me the house or is it just a ethical issue like I shouldn't do that but I can? (I didn't sign any contract with anyone so does that mean I am free to choose whoever I want to work with?) Thanks.
  • Thanks all for the answers! To Landlord: I don't think it's illegal to offer cashback. If you do research online, many real estate agents do offer that. If some states, it might be illegal but not in the state of California. My concern is if I pick Agent B, I will lose that thousand dollar cashback because he doesn't offer that service to me. The reason I picked Agent B at the beginning because I thought he will help me bargain for a better price, but it seems like it's not in the case!
  • Definitely. This is your money we're talking about here. If you can get more money back from the other agent, why stick with the one you have now if you'll get nothing??? Do what you gotta do to look out for yourself.
  • Regardless of whether the agent found the house or if you did, if that agent showed it to you, they are considered the one who brought you to the ultimate contract, and will have a claim for the commission on the listing. Since you will probably sign an affidavit that states who your realtor was, if you don't list them, you will be responsible for paying their commission if/when they sue to claim it. If you do list both, the Seller is unlikely to close without their liability for commission being resolved, and their Agent probably won't agree to cutting their own commission, and both of your agents will want their full share, and the bottom line is that it's going to be what we call in legal terminology, "a big ol' mess". Stay with the realtor that showed the house, at least for THAT house. If you happen to sign a Buyer's Agency form with another agent, be sure to exclude that house from it. Now, as an aside, I don't see a problem with what agent B did. He told you the truth, that there are already offers, and there is no negotiating a lower price. That's the case unless you want to put in an all cash offer to close in five days. He did his job, he told you the truth.
  • You cannot play this game like you apparently would like to play it. When Agent A shows you a property, Agent A is entitled to full commission for doing so, whether or not you use Agent A to complete the deal. You are attempting to use one agent's offer of commission structure against the offer of another who provides different service. If you persist in this line of thinking you are going to find yourself in a world of hurt. Work with the agent whom you trust, and complete any deal with that agent, and NONE other.
  • He will sue your ***. Agent A is not working legally (illegal to offer cash back) and wuld also be breaking further laws by placing a bid on another agents deal. Agent B WAS doing their job. You placed a low bid, there were higher bids, he told you this. You lost the house because of yourself, not anything he did.
  • I just started working as a management trainee about 3 weeks ago at Taco Bell and I'm really have a problem with this one manager there. She has had a poor attitude towards me the whole time and is very disrespectful and moody. I've had complaints that I give her and the other managers an attitude when I am asked to do something, so today I decided to write down everything she said to me so that when she complains about my attitude I have a whole log of stuff she has said to me. When I got home to review it I noticed a lot of things in there that are inappropriate to say in the workplace. I mentioned that I don't have or want a girlfriend in my life right now to another employee so she was going around telling other people that I liked guys so some of the things she said where "He probably wants to date a transvestite, We should buy you a hooker, you need to just go find your special guy. When another manager said she just had to smoke, and I said "why do you have to?" The other rude manager said "we have to smoke for the same reason you want to go find a man." She has also told me I act like an @$$, among many other things. I don't know if this is considered to be sexual harassment or just intimidation. If it is sexual harassment what is there that I can do about it really? The only other people working at the time were her friends so even though other people heard it, it is not like if they are questioned they will tell the truth, because they'll want to cover her ***. What do you think would happen if I said similar stuff like that to her? If I told her she was acting like a BlTCH, called her a lesbo, told her she needed to start dating female cross-dressers, etc. Why is sexual harassment only a major problem if it is men that say it? She is 6 months pregnant and uses that in her defense for being a BlTCH quite frequently. I know pregnant women are often moody, but will they honestly have the urge to say such mean stuff to their co-workers?
  • Ah the joys and folly's of working for a giant company. Good that none of the major bosses pays attention to you that much so you can slack off for the most part -- but that's also the problem: nobody in corporate is looking at you or your employees. At Fry's Electronics, we had that issue with a few of the customer service reps (cashiers). Many of them were making racist / sexist remarks about their co-workers in front of customers. It took a whole year along with 43 letters from employees to get the Customer Service Supervisor 1 (highest rank) among 4 of the other co-workers whom also made the same remarks fired. This was because our regional supervisor was lazy and didn't give much of a rats ***, so there was a specified time period where we had to wait until corporate would jump in. So, people you should be reporting this question to in this order: that person who is harassing you -> Shift Manager -> Store Manager -> Regional Manager -> Corporate Human Resources. Check with store policy about time frame. The next higher level will not support you until you talk to the one level lower. And do not worry, they cannot fire you for reporting. Hell, if you're in California, you better hope they fire you. You get a HUGE cash reward from the state for being a whistle blower". All companies must have the legal notices where the mininum wages are posted. Look around for a sign talking about the whistle-blower award.
  • Yes, it is sexual harassment, and no I would not list the reason for leaving as such. I would put "difference of opinions" or something less aggressive. The reason being is because there is a lot of false accusations in sexual harassment, and putting that on your app may be a red flag to a potential employer that may have had a bad experience with a false accusation. I would put down something vague and I would not go into much detail if asked. It sounds too gossipy, even though it is true, a boss doesn't want to hear gossip about a former boss. Rise above it and keep it simple and professional!
  • First of all, sexual harassment isn't only a problem when men say or do things. It is sexual harassment if women are doing it, the problem is that most men do not report it. But to answer your question, yes, it could be sexual harassment. They really cannot discuss your sexuality (wether they are telling the truth, or in your case, lying about it) Don't call her a *****, lesbo, etc. It will make your case much weaker. You need to contact someone higher up than her in the Taco Bell company. Since you can't really go into work and ask this woman who to talk to, I would go online and look up a phone number to call to make complaints, but be sure that you are talking to a real person and once you explain that you are an employee, they will take you seriously (rather than just a customer who didn't like their meal) You may not get anywhere with this if your coworkers would really be willing to lie for her (which I doubt they will if this becomes a big deal, since they would get into some serious trouble) but you should definitely try. Women can't use pregnancy as an excuse for acting like that. Yes, some women do get very emotional, but it doesn't sound like she is emotional about this, it sounds like she is just a rude person. Pregnancy doesn't make you insult people. Good luck! keep in mind: you may loose the job if you go through with this, I know technically they can't fire you for filing a harrassment charge, but you would be amazed at the # of people who magically get downsized, or suddenly get written up for coming in late after a claim like this is filed.
  • Absolutely!!!! The next time she makes a smart *** remark to you IN FRONT OF another employee or manager, ASK THEM TO TAKE NOTES of this and let her know that you do not appreciate her remarks...in a stern, but NICE way. If she apologizes or terrorizes your life from that point on, DOCUMENT and have a WITNESS. In the mean time, finish school (Taco Bell, etc. is NO future), and get a more rewarding career. Also, what example is she making by smoking while she is pregnant....sounds lik her life is quite upset!!
  • The 4th paragraph is textbook example of sexual harassment/inappropriate behavior on her part. Pregnant or not, there is no excuse for her behavior. It doesn't matter that you are not gay, it matters that she is prejudiced against people that are gay and makes inappropriate comments and sexual inneuendos. Look up your corporate Human Resources Manager, not just her manager, and report her at once to protect yourself in case she tries to fire you; there are laws that protect whistle-blowers and if she does fire you, at least you will get unemployment and may have a case against the company. Whatever you do, don't sink to her level, or you only give her a legitimate reason for her, and the company to uphold its decision, to terminate you for just cause. Continue to tell her that at comments are inappropriate and uncalled for.
  • Intimidation and/or harassment are illegal. If you are having issue, you can politely ask that she stop. Record all the times you've tried to be pleasant and a team player. If this does not correct the situation, present a copy with your complaint to your boss. If they don't do anything you may want to contact the EEO office if you have one.
  • You have no legal recourse if you don't report it to her manager. Taco Bell needs to be given the chance to resolve the situation.
  • Hello, recently received a reply on my Craigslist listing. The email started with "Hi I'm Scott, are your services still available? If YES! tell me asap so we can discus my puppies" I got his ip address from the email and I came up with 2 addresses. I tested them both. the first ip address listed was Received from California. The second one all the way at the bottom, Spain. He also somehow had 2 emails, which may explain why there is 2 ip addies. When I replied to him, his email was vastly different than the one he sent his email from. Note: I live on the eastern side of the U.S.
  • There are scam busting sites with online lists of the names scammers use, their fake job offers, their email addresses, stock copy/paste emails, paid-for-in-cash cell phone numbers, stolen pictures and fake websites they use. You could start your search and post/ask at such sites. If you have responded to a scammer, you are on his 'potential sucker' list, he will try again to separate you from your cash. He will send you more emails from his other free email addresses using another of his fake names with all kinds of stories of great jobs, lottery winnings, millions in the bank and desperate, lonely, sexy singles. He will sell your email address to all his scamming buddies who will also send you dozens of fake emails all with the exact same goal, you sending them your cash via Western Union or moneygram. Do you know how to check the header of a received email? If not, you could google for information. Being able to read the header to determine the geographic location an email originated from will help you weed out the most obvious scams and scammers. Then delete and block that scammer. Don't bother to tell him that you know he is a scammer, it isn't worth your effort. He has one job in life, convincing victims to send him their hard-earned cash. Whenever suspicious or just plain curious, google everything, website addresses, names used, companies mentioned, phone numbers given, all email addresses, even partial sentences from the emails as you might be unpleasantly surprised at what you find already posted online. You can also post/ask here and every scam-warner-anti-fraud-busting site you can find before taking a chance and losing money to a scammer.
  • SCAM - this is a typical money laundering scam. I bet you put up an ad for dog sitter or dog walker? These scammers target anyone posting a Work Wanted ad. They say they want to offer you work but are out of town/out of the country. They ask for your home address so they can send you a check to buy some sort of supplies or another reason? This is a money laundering scam DO NOT reply for any reason and NEVER give your home address to anyone on Craiglist for any reason. If they were real they would invite you to THEIR house for an interview before offering you any work
  • Most of the messages I have seen in response to any craigslist posting are spam. My general rule of thumb: If you're unsure, treat it as spam.
  • It's one of those company advertizements that spread throughout the world. Don't worry about it.

  • DANVILLE — One man has been arrested and police are searching for another in connection with church burglaries in Danville and San Ramon, police said. Cash was stolen during the burglaries at St. Isidore's Church in Danville and St. Joan of Arc Church in San Ramon, according to a news release from the Contra Costa County Sheriff's Office, which contracts police services for the town of Danville. The burglaries were discovered after the arrest of 36-year-old transient Victor Ramirez-Benitez, who was spotted by police about 2:30 a.m. Monday walking with another man on El Cerro Boulevard at La Gonda Way. When Danville patrol Officer Brian Sliger made a U-turn to get a closer look at the two backpack-carrying men, they ran toward the freeway. Police searched the area and found two abandoned backpacks containing burglary tools, and one of them contained cash-filled envelopes belonging to St. Isidore's Church. Authorities said they found Ramirez-Benitez hiding in bushes along the southbound Interstate 680 offramp. San Ramon officers and a police dog and the California Highway Patrol helped search for a second suspect, but they did not find anyone. After the arrest of Ramirez-Benitez, police went to St. Isidore's Church in the 400 block of La Gonda Way and found that someone had pried a side window, and at one point tried to break open the church's tabernacle. Two other rooms in the back of the church had been ransacked, police.Ultimately, there was no serious loss, said Kathy Dake, office manager for the church. "There was very little money taken," Dake said. "They just went through some drawers." Police said the church was last burglarized about three years ago, when the tabernacle was stolen. About 4:30 a.m. Monday, San Ramon police got a report of a burglary at St. Joan of Arc Church in the 2600 block of San Ramon Valley Boulevard. In that case, someone had also forced their way in through a side window, then cut into a safe and taken cash. Police said physical evidence suggests that both burglaries were committed by the same people. Investigators are checking with other police agencies about whether they have experienced similar burglaries. Ramirez-Benitez was booked into the County Jail in Martinez on suspicion of burglary, possession of burglary tools, and vandalism. He has also been placed on an immigration hold. http://www.contracostatimes.com/ci_13650726?source=most_emailed&nclick_check=1
  • Well I can suggest several possible answers, and you take your pick...1) He could not find a day laborer`s job, and he was hungry. ( For this we anti-illegals are to blame.) {sarcastic smiley here}...2)"There is no honor among thieves"-(or illegals)...3) He imagined he was "Robin Hood" A La Familia taking from the rich to give to the poor,(to his favorite charity-himself)..4) Aah..he "wanted to make his life better" (there`s winner..)..5) Arrr...He did not know it was a church that he was breaking into...6) (and here`s the kicker.) He was framed up-it was not him who broke into the church, no sirrrie...police framed him up...Can you think of one?..
  • Same reason that a legal, a citizen, or a native american would do it. The ilegal is not from outer space
  • Its just suspicion of burglary
  • Crime, not immigration.
  • I live with my 4 tenants. 2 need to be served with an unlawful detainer. I had a friend successfully serve the '3-day Pay or Quit' notice and hope that same friend can be used to serve the 'Unlawful Detainer'. I paid a paralegal to draw-up all the paperwork. Today the 'Unlawful Detainer' was recorded in the Superior Court of Santa Cruz County, (Civil Division). It looks like the procedure for serving the Unlawful Detainer might require some detail that I am unaware of. Question: How to fill out the "Notice to Person Being Served' box (bottom of Page 1, Summons). The paralegal told me to check the box 'as and individual defendant' in the first section but was unsure about the 2nd section. The only possible answer for that would be 'as an occupant'. Does this section/that box need to be checked? Also, please let me know if there is any other specific requirements for serving an Unlawful Detainer. I can't screw it up now. Thank you very much!
  • Gee, should have had an attorney do it for you. If you go to the california bar association website you may be able to find a pro-bono attorney or one that will work with you based on your income. Also you may be able to get help at your local courthouse. Most Callifornia courts have what is called a "self help" area with a paralegal that is trained to explain the forms & how to serve them. Becasuse the person is an employee of the court, it is free. Often times California allows for personal service - a person not a party to the action, who is over 18 hands them the paperwork and signs a sworn statement they delivered the paperwork. Also look at the county and/or state siupreme court website for some self-help links. Here's one to your county: http://www.santacruzcourt.org/self-helpYou may need to look on line for landlord tenant laws, and the rules of court for your county.
  • No, you are conducting business. People do it everyday, why should you be any different? You are not holding guns to people's heads. They can say no if they do not like what you offer them. 1 - Find a car you can afford and bring enough cash to cover the whole asking price. 2 - Seeing a car online or in the newspaper is entirely different than seeing it in person. If you think the car is good, have your mechanic make sure that the car is in sound running condition. 3 - Here in California a car must have a "Smog Certificate" before it can be sold. If your state requires it, make sure the car is Smog certified. 4 - Make sure the owner has the "pink slip" for the car and that it is currently registered. Don't even bother with cars that do not have titles that are clear. It's not worth the hassle. 5 - Money talks, everything else walks. The cash you have in your hand is POWER. If you show up with no cash you have no power. True story: I bought a car less than a month ago. The seller was asking $2500 for a car that normally sells for $4000 with twice as many miles as his car had on it. I drove the car, checked it out and it is in great condition for a 1992. All that having been said, I paid $2300 for a car with full service documentation, a brand new clutch, a brand new heating and air conditioning system, an alarm system and LOJack already installed. Try to buy a car from a private seller that is not desperate for money. I am sure the guy I bought the car from could afford to give me the car and not even worry about it. Again, money is power. Money talks, everything else walks. Have some backbone, don't be a punk. The 8% that I saved on the purchase of the car went a long way in getting insurance and registration for it. Go for it!
  • when i bought my car i took someone with me that was car smart and before buying check everything the interior, exterior, and under the hood. and make sure to check the undercarriage Good Luck.
  • No trick really, ask him, if he won't take less than he won't. Thats the way business is.
  • WHEN HE'S NOT LOOKING, KICK THE DOOR IN AND THEN SAY "LOOK, THERE'S A HUGE DENT HERE, THAT'LL COST $500 TO FIX.... LOWER THE PRICE OR I WALK" WORKS EVERYTIME!
  • that is kind of unethical. trying to get someone to take a loss. shame on you. you like the car buy it.
  • The following information is from the Los Angeles Times: 1. 40% of all workers in L. A. County (L. A. County has 10 million people) are working for cash and not paying taxes. This was because they are predominantly illegal immigrants, working without a green card. 2. 95% of warrants for murder in Los Angeles are for illegal aliens. 3. 75% of people on the most wanted list in Los Angeles are illegal aliens. 4. Over 2/3's of all births in Los Angeles County are to illegal alien Mexicans on Medi-Cal whose births were paid for by taxpayers. 5. Nearly 25% of all inmates in California detention centers are Mexican nationals here illegally. 6. Over 300,000 illegal aliens in Los Angeles County are living in garages. 7. The FBI reports half of all gang members in Los Angeles are most likely illegal aliens from south of the border. 8. Nearly 60% of all occupants of HUD properties are illegal. 9. 21 radio stations in L. A. are Spanish speaking. 10. In L. A. County 5.1 million people speak English. 3.9 million speak Spanish (10.2 million people in L. A. County). There are more: Less than 2% of illegal aliens are picking our crops but 29% are on welfare. Over 70% of the United States annual population growth (and over 90% of California, Florida, and New York) results from immigration. The cost of immigration to the American taxpayer in 1997 was a NET (after subtracting taxes immigrants pay) $70 BILLION a year, [Professor Donald Huddle, Rice University]. The lifetime fiscal impact (taxes paid minus services used) for the average adult Mexican immigrant is a NEGATIVE 29% of inmates in federal prisons are illegal aliens.
  • Sickening! Controlling immigration has been my biggest political issue for awhile! My vote for the republican primary will depend heavily on where the candidates stand on immigration! All the democrats are limp d*cks on this issue, not that I'd ever vote for a dem anyway!
  • Depressing- isn't it? But the bottom line IS, they're NOT helping us to fix the problem. As long as nobody can AGREE on a plan to solve it that everyone can agree on, NOTHING is going to get DONE. And from the looks of it now- that's pretty much a "given" until sometime after the NEXT President gets into Office, in 2009. -If then...
  • Someone should mail these stats to the Bush admin and the Dem senate.
  • I came across this site yesterday. So far, I've emailed the link to 35 friends and coworkers, and showed it on my own computer to 4 people. Thanks for the link and spreading the word!
  • I'm sure your ancestors were immigrants too.
  • Hi and thanks for your time! I recently posted a question just like this and i got alot of help and good advise. basically i was looking for a dog i posted somthing online for one and i receved an email. I answered a bunch of questions and this is what they said. Since you are located far from me, i can arrange a courier that will bring the puppy to your home, the delivery fee will cost $ 200 for everything including home Delivery Services. This is a very fast,efficient and reliable pet VIP courier we got here. It is an Advantage using a courier because the puppy documents will be changed to your names so that every document of the puppy will bear your names, Hence you will be the legal owner of the puppy as the courier is to do transfer of ownership certificates of pets before delivery. To proceed with this flight, the following details are required, Names in Full , Exact Home Address, City And State, Post Code, Cell And Land line Numbers. Nearest Airport With these I will get the puppy registered for flight today and the courier will contact you on how to make payment of the home delivery charges and Arrival time of the puppy. I will send the puppy alongside Pedigree And Health Certificates, Sample Food, 4 Cloths, Toys And a Pet Magazine For Better Understanding Of The Breed NOW! I all about the cameroon scam and how they have automated messages. But she sent me alot of emails of the puppy i want. I google searched the image and LINKS CAME UP another website! but it was the same people trying to sell the puppys! And instead of living in cameroon. they say they live in california. and I emailed back wondering if it was a scam and they responded no and i said can you call me and we can do this over the phone then and she said yes what is your number. Now help it understand is this still a scam? Thanks so much and have a nice day :)!
  • 100% scam. There is no dog for sale. There are stolen pictures of someone else's dog. There is only a scammer trying to steal your hard-earned money. The next email will be from another of the scammer's fake names and free email addresses pretending to be the "pet shipping company" and will demand you pay for shipping fees, in cash, and only by Western Union or moneygram. Western Union and moneygram do not verify anything on the form the sender fills out, not the name, not the street address, not the country, not even the gender of the receiver, it all means absolutely nothing. The clerk will not bother to check ID and will simply hand off your cash to whomever walks in the door with the MTCN# and question/answer. Neither company will tell the sender who picked up the cash, at what store location or even in what country your money walked out the door. Neither company has any kind of refund policy, money sent is money gone forever. Now that you have responded to a scammer, you are on his 'potential sucker' list, he will try again to separate you from your cash. He will send you more emails from his other free email addresses using another of his fake names with all kinds of stories of great jobs, lottery winnings, millions in the bank and desperate, lonely, sexy singles. He will sell your email address to all his scamming buddies who will also send you dozens of fake emails all with the exact same goal, you sending them your cash via Western Union or moneygram. You could post up the email address and the emails themselves that the scammer is using, it will help make your post more googlable for other suspicious potential victims to find when looking for information. Do you know how to check the header of a received email? If not, you could google for information. Being able to read the header to determine the geographic location an email originated from will help you weed out the most obvious scams and scammers. Then delete and block that scammer. Don't bother to tell him that you know he is a scammer, it isn't worth your effort. He has one job in life, convincing victims to send him their hard-earned cash. Whenever suspicious or just plain curious, google everything, website addresses, names used, companies mentioned, phone numbers given, all email addresses, even sentences from the emails as you might be unpleasantly surprised at what you find already posted online. You can also post/ask here and every scam-warner-anti-fraud-busting site you can find before taking a chance and losing money to a scammer. If you google "Cameroon pet scam", "fake puppy sale scam Western Union" or something similar you will find hundreds of posts from victims and near-victims of this type of scam. There are sites where you can look up pictures and find the site or sites where the scammer stolen the cute pictures of the puppies.
  • Some people deserve to get scammed, because they refuse, despite the good advice of others, to accept that you don't get something for nothing. You are one of those people. BTW, why do you want another puppy when you already have a Pit Bull puppy that you don't know how to care for? http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;...
  • You asked this 13 hours ago and got several answers. It was a scam then, and is still a scam. These Cameroon scams are all over the place. Do you really think that they'd admit, to you, that this was a scam? Why would you purchase a dog, site unseen? Again, where are your parents?
  • You are just ordering a dog from a BYBer or Puppy Mill. Never order a dog on line. You want to see the dog with your own eyes & pet it & all. Yes, you are being scammed. Never get a dog off the internet or from your local newspaper or a pet shop. They are all BYBers & Puppy Mills trying to get rid of their low quality dogs (mutts) I would contact the closest Breed club & ask for a reputable breeder. They know who is breeding what & the quality of what they are breeding. If you had of given us the Breed, I could have found a site for you. Why would the dog need flight clearance if it is going to be delivered to your door? You should find a pup locally so that if there is anything wrong with the pup you have 72 hours to return it. Take the pup to the Vet before you even take it home. If there is something genetically or physically or mentally wrong with the dog you can return it for your money back. Don't fall in love with it until you know you are going to keep it. It is hard to return a pup when the Vet says there is something seriously wrong with the pup if the breeder is several hundred miles away.
  • Buying a dog online is always shady. I always suggest getting a dog from a shelter or rescue in your area. If you're really determined to purchase a dog from a breeder, either get one from a breeder near you, or take a trip to the breeder to get the dog. You need to be able to see the parents, where the dogs are kept, how they're kept, and the actual dog you'll be getting before you give over any money or sign any contracts. Doing this with a courier service is a recipe for disaster.
  • This is defiantly a scam. Someone was doing the exact same thing to me. I phoned then to have a westie puppy and they was saying "we deliver puppies". They said the puppies where a few months old and ready but when i looked closely at the picture of then there was a date on the picture of 3 years before the actual date. Do NOT give then any of your details. If you give them your card details they would most likely take all of your money!
  • You asked this 12 hours ago, It was a scam then, and it is still a scam now. There are hundreds of these scams going on right here in the USA. If you can't see the puppy, the parents, or the grandparents and the kennel. It is either a scam or a Puppy Mill.
  • Scam. Work with a reputable rescue to get a puppy that cheap, or find a reputable breeder to get a well-bred purebred. If these people are for real, suggest that they surrender the puppy to a breed rescue to find a good home. They won't do it since the puppy doesn't exist, but it would be better for the puppy if it *was* real than being shipped sight-unseen across the country.
  • It's probably a scam, but even if it isn't, you should still never buy a puppy over the internet. This is something you need to do in person. Good breeders will NEVER ship you a puppy or sell you one online. EVERY SINGLE puppy sold this way is from either a puppymill or back yard breeder. Either way, it will be poorly bred.
  • Scam written all over this. If you want a dog/pup go to your local shelters and humane society. Find breed rescues in your area. Go to petfinders.com, they work with shelters. If you must have a dog/pup from a breeder find a reputable breeder. When looking at puppies from a breeder ask to see, you must see, the results of the parents OFA ( Orthopedic Foundation for Animals ) scores for hips, elbows and patella. Also ask to see the CERF ( Canine Eye Registration Foundation) BAER (hearing) and Cardiac results. Do not accept any excuses for not having them a reputable breeder can show you. They can also trace the parents lineagefor several generations. If the sire was off site they will still have the proof. They can provide a pedigree of the pup. Not just registration papers. Pedigree means they can list at least three generations back from the pup. They can tell you the pro's and cons of the breed.
  • Depending on what state you are, the hours for being a hairdresser vary. In California, It takes number of hours in cosmetology school. The are state grants tat could help you go through cosmetology school. Then you need to take the test with a live model and a written exam. Once you passed, you pay your license fees to the board of cosmetology. If you ar new go to some of the reputable salons that have a huge volume of clients like JC Penney. Go to hair shows and take up courses in hair coloring, hair extensions, and cutng style, etc. In some places like Supercuts, they have their set of rules in cutting a certain style and that must be followed. During the first 5 years seek a style in your craft. Keep a record of your clients. like what kind of hair color, brand or what kind of haircut. Keep your records secretly. as long a you did not sign a covenant not to compete etc. Keep sending them birthday, Christmas. cards. fI they have not shown up, call or send them a flyer with your name. Pamper your clients because you will be their confidant, psychologist, etc. Then when you are ready to become an independent conractor; Keep Service first and the cash box wll take careof itself/ Some people will take advantage of you. If new clients, do not take checks. and always calculate your commision and how much you should be gettng when you take credit cards with your salon. Alway hve these words posted in big letters ABSOLUTELY NO CASH REFUNDS FOR SERVICES RENDERED. Do not let any one push you aroun. If you can't stand the particular salon youre in look for another one. Be true to only yourself.
  • My father just told me that his bank account has been frozen since dec 29th. Apparently the creditors won on based on a default judgement. Thing is my father was never served papers to appear in court. I took a trip with him to the court and took a look over the paperwork, apparently he was served during the day and hour he was at work. We have proof he worked that day via his printed work schedule, so its impossible he was served during the hours the server claimed. He's been terribly depressed as my mother, his wife, passed away last year. He said he was so stressed he couldn't handle it and for the past 2 months he's been cashing his checks. Stupid on his part for waiting so long to tell me, but that's how it has unfortunately played out. I'd like to know if anyone has any information on what exactly we can do to unfreeze the money in the bank account. And what our chances of getting the money back is? Its around 3k ( -300 due to bank fees) it shows on the bank website as present balance, but negative for the available. Which brings me to another question. Certain automatic payments are still being made on the account and are shown to subtract from that "present" balance, could we possibly still use this money somehow? the bank charges overdraft fees every time a transaction is made, but I'd rather use up all the money and pay a few fees than to let those bastard creditors get everything. Thank you so much
  • The FTC can't help other than providing a generic form to file a complaint. - Even if your dad did default, he did have the right to be properly served a summons so that he could at least show up in court and plead his case to get a better payment plan. - This is going to be a real mess to clean up...and ultimately the best way to help is to pay the judgment yourself if you can. Get all terms in writing before you pay them any settlement. Don't just cut them a check for $3,000....if you do they'll come back in 2 weeks for more money, denying that there was ever any settlement agreement. - You may be able to get the judgement overturned if you can prove that you were never served properly. See my answer (CatDad) at the following link: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?...- If you do succeed it would void the judgement and the bank account would be unfrozen. If this does work, it might take 2-4 months to prove this and get the account unfrozen....and the creditor can always take your dad right back to court if this is a real default. At least the 2nd time around he could respond and show up in court to work out a payment plan that he can afford. Example of "sewer service" tactic: http://www.ripoffreport.com/collection-a... Good article: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/12/31/nyregi...
  • He needs an attorney like yesterday. Preferred a bankruptcy attorney. I would not pay them a dime. If you do not get an attorney you have to ask the bank. Any automatic funds coming to this account needs to be stopped and open an account at a different bank. Do not give creditors his banking info.

  • my name is Mr (censored) Am from California(CA) but i am presently not at home right now,I Am in ENGLAND.I'm contacting you concerning your item on Ebay which i eventually became the winning bidder for your item..presently i am not at home right now i traveled to England for a business trip.send the item to my son in west Africa (NIGERIA).Here is my PayPal E-MAIL ADRESS(censored).Make sure you send me your PayPal Email Address so i can immediately make out my payment. This sound like another Nigerian scam artist to you? His account was made the day I listed the item.
  • 100% scam. There is no buyer. There is only a scammer trying to steal your hard-earned money. Notice how he does not call what you are selling by name but uses the word "item" instead. That is a huge red flag of a scammer. Scammers can't be bothered to read what is being sold and will simply send the same stock copy/paste email to everyone selling electronics, high end clothing and jewelry. The next email will be from another of the scammer's fake names and free email addresses pretending to be "paypal" that will say "kindly send the tracking number and we will release the funds". Paypal does NOT ever send such emails, does NOT hold money or demand you send a tracking number for any reason. Scammers always want your possession sent via trackable means so they can watch your item travel half way around the world to their doorstep. Any phone number that starts with +44-70 or anything similar is not based in the United Kingdom. It is from a UK based cell phone redirect service that can be answered by anyone anywhere in the world. It is a favorite service of scammers who want to pretend to be in the United Kingdom but are really half way around the world from there. Now that you have responded to a scammer, you are on his 'potential sucker' list, he will try again to separate you from your cash. He will send you more emails from his other free email addresses using another of his fake names with all kinds of stories of great jobs, lottery winnings, millions in the bank and desperate, lonely, sexy singles. He will sell your email address to all his scamming buddies who will also send you dozens of fake emails all with the exact same goal, you sending them your cash via Western Union or moneygram. You could post up the email address and the emails themselves that the scammer is using, it will help make your post more googlable for other suspicious potential victims to find when looking for information. Do you know how to check the header of a received email? If not, you could google for information. Being able to read the header to determine the geographic location an email originated from will help you weed out the most obvious scams and scammers. Then delete and block that scammer.

You can also post/ask here and every scam-warner-anti-fraud-busting site you can find before taking a chance and losing money to a scammer. Yes, simply ignore him. Any response with just alert him that your email address is active and you will be bombarded with spam emails. Yes, just relist the item. If you contact eBay and tell them that a scammer attempted to convince you to send him your possession without him actually paying, you might be able to get the fees for the second listing reduced or waived.
  • I am British and I do know some genuinely decent honest Nigerians. However, it is a fact that people in Nigeria see the Internet as an easy way to scam people out of money or goods. The standard of living in the country has a lot to do with people's desperation. There are no welfare benefits in Nigeria. If you lose your job, you eventually lose your house and then you end up on the street as a beggar. I would ignore any online interaction relating to Nigeria
  • DO NOT send it - it's typical scam language Report the buyer ASAP to Ebay and they will let you relist it and give you the listing fees back. They are used to people reporting these scams The fact he asked for your Paypal address is all you need to know it's a scam. A real buyer pays through Ebay - the reason you use Ebay is to protect your privacy so you don't have to give your Paypal details to anyone Don't even respond to him and when you relist, be sure you don't ship overseas
  • I am betting u have them listed as BUY NOW. Set it up without the buy now. That way if the highest bidder is a scam u can offer it to the next highest bidder. Also report it to Ebay. They can shut off that account which won;t prevent a different account. U can also specify that u are not taking bids from anybody without at least 5 rated purchases
  • If you can convo with him - tell him that you will ship only after payment comes through. If he refuses, you know he's a scam artist.
  • It's obviously a scam.
  • You might be eligible for Medi-Cal. It is based on income and assets. But California has many programs to assist for pregnancy and the income can be up to 400% of the federal poverty level for eligibility. If you don't qualify for medi-cal, but you qualify for another program, your worker will refer you to that program to apply. If you don't qualify for any state programs, you will have to pay cash. All hospitals and OB's have cash discounted rates. They usually have to be paid at or before you deliver, so check it out ASAP. You will need to ask about rates for normal and c-section deliveries and epidurals. There will also be a fee that you will need to pay the pediatrician to see the baby in the hospital (well-check) before it can go home. If you have a boy, you may also need to pay for a circumcision. Here is a link to Medi-cal and an application. The site also tells you were to send or mail the applications. The coverage can go back 3 months from the date you apply to cover any services you have recieved so far. http://www.dhcs.ca.gov/services/medi-cal...
  • What my problem is, is I have a guy trying to buy my dirt bike off craigslist and is says he's an oceanographer. He said he would pay $3300 for my bike and take care of the shipping. The shipping guy is located in california and his payment of method was western union another wireing company like paypal.

Paypal sent me an email confirming this but I needed to send a scan receipt of my purchase for shipping to paypal. I did this and then they said they would credit my account with in 6 hours I get another email 6 hours later saying I have to pay $1300 for an insurance fee for the shipper. I have to pay shipping fees because of his job and he can't deal with it. Then paypal sent me another email saying the total amount of $5600 will be credited to my account once I pay that other $1300 and send thbm another scan receipt. Then I emailed paypal like 5 times bitching at them and they finally said they were going to monitor me and this guys transactions to make sure its legit. Someone help me please with advice or if you know its a scam or if I should continue and then sue paypal and this guy if it is a scam. Email me please at lreitzner@hotmail.com thank you
  • 100% scam. There is no buyer. There is only a scammer who has stolen your money. The scammer isn't interested in your identity or bank account, only your CASH. The next email was from one of the scammer's fake names and free email addresses pretending to be "Paypal" saying "kindly send us some shipping fee via Western Union or moneygram and we will release the funds". Paypal does NOT send such emails, ever. Paypal does NOT demand the receiver pay to receive the money. Paypal does NOT send such emails, ever. Paypal does NOT have escrow or money holding services like that scammer describes. Paypal does NOT demand you send a tracking number before money is sent. EVER. No exceptions. Now that you have responded to a scammer, you are on his 'potential sucker' list, he will try again to separate you from your cash. He will send you more emails from his other free email addresses using another of his fake names with all kinds of stories of being the perfect buyer, great jobs, lottery winnings, millions in the bank and desperate, lonely, sexy singles.

You can also post/ask here and every scam-warner-anti-fraud-busting site you can find before taking a chance and losing money to a scammer. If you google "yahoo buyer's protection program scam", "fake paypal email scam", "ebay escrow fraud" or something similar you will find hundreds of posts from victims and near victims of this type of scam. Since you are NOT emailing paypal, you can't sue, you are only emailing ONE scammer who is using multiple email addresses to scam you. STOP emailing that criminal, cut your losses and move on.
  • 100% SCAM NONE of those emails were from Paypal - they were fake emails from a scammer that only looked like they were from Paypal. Froward those emails to spoof@paypal.com and they will confirm within 24 hours that they were fake NO shipping company accepts Western Union for any reason - every legitimate shipper takes credit cards Paypal will NEVER ask for a scanned receipt for any reason You need to contact the police with copies of all emails you have sent printed with full headers. You've already lost $900 with no way to get it back so you need to report this to the police
  • IT IS A SCAM. None of those emails was from PayPal. The payment to the shipping company went directly to the scammer and you have lost it. You will not receive any money. ʎəɿʞɹɐq  ̊ ͜͡● ̊
  • Our friendly neighborhood feral cat who is 4 yrs - male was eating a piece of chicken and minding his own business when all of a sudden my friends 2 yr old pit bull that i have been watching for a week came up behind him and attacked him severely. The cat and the female pit have known each other since the pitbull was born. they never ever had a problem. the attack was very gruesome, it took 2 of us to pull her off of the cat. we had no choice but to hit her with a large pepper grinder on the jaws .As the attack continued i held the pit by the hind legs to keep her from fulling attacking but it didn't make a difference. I saw her crushing the cat in her jaws. The Pitbull would shake her head like she had a rag doll in her mouth. The poor cat didn't see the sneak attack coming and was caught off guard. after words with blood everywhere we got them apart. we noticed right away that "meow meow" ( the cat) has a misshaped mouth. he is in pain and has lots of blood coming from his mouth. He is missing his bottom fang and a top one as well. it looks like maybe his mouth is dislocated or broken by the way it hangs open slightly and to one side a bit.The thing is I didn't expect anything this terrible to happen with the pitbull and with the economy how it is I don't have the cash today to take him into a hospital.I asked the neighbors who all feed him and they ignored me. one guy Jason (thanks J) pitched in but it's not enough. The local dog and cat rescue services for Arizona said it was to late to come help me and i would have to wait till Monday morning . I don't know what to do, We hate to see him suffer. poor thing. he was safely in my patio where i feed him all the time. he even takes turns coming into all of our homes. we all bath this cat, heal his wounds and we have even tagged him with tags and a collar. and then this happens. I feel so guilty. As for the pitbull, I have called the police and they will be coming for her on Monday as well, she is getting put down if my friend does not reply when called. My friend is in California on a movie set, He doesn't bother calling anyone during casting calls. so what can I do about the poor cats pain? will he die if he doesn't eat? this happened today at 7;00 PM this evening . His gum's look OK in color kinda pink he can't eat or chew he won't take water. he's just sleeping . he is able to walk when trying to hide from me. and jump. he is sleeping in a cabinet under my laundry room sink. will he die? is he suffering terribly..I'm just not sure if he can heal himself. please help..The cat and I are alone with this problem.
  • I am macking a video and uploading it to you tube right now so you can see him and pray for him please. He is so special. I'll be back with the link as soon as I'm done folks. so come back and check this question in about an hour. The pitbull is locked up in a large Kennel. she's not doing good herself. she' shaking her head like if she has something wrong with her ears. the blows from the pepper grinder had to have hurt her. I love her to, very much. she has scratches all over her face and has lots of meow meows blood all over her chest. What she did was bite him on his neck. he is small and she has a huge jaw. so she was able to crush his mouth and break his jaw. We are taking him in to the hospital as soon as my ride comes. and begging to atleast have him put down for half the cost. . Thank you guys for you help.
  • To everyone who want's to see meow meow, here is the link to his video. it's not pretty. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E1sdFJZKHCk&feature=channel_page if it doesn't work. the tags are--- pitbull attacks cat, cat injuries, brutal attack on cat by a pitbull, Arizona feral cats. if anyone knows of a vet or a vets assistant in arizona, Avondale, Goodyear, litchfield or phoenix that will just take him in for free. please share that connection with me for this poor cat. thank you so very much. l
  • Thanks for your help Gregg. we finally got a 24 hr hospital to take him for free. the locals wouldn't touch him because they were closed and then also because i had to pay first for an exam. they said if he could be saved he would need 24 hr around the clock help and we have no 24 hr hospitals near me. he was put down earlier today around noon. he had a broken jaw, in 3 places. had punctures in his neck several. he had an infection already. and a broken arm and holes in his arms. I am pissed with the local VETS for not helping him. I am pissed with the police department for not transporting him to the mesa human society.which is 55 miles for me to have walked with him ppl can be so cruel when it comes to money and favors. not everyone loves feral cats. I tried to help get put down as soon as i new he had a broken jaw. I am so hurt ppl would be so cruel. to us. the comments on second post were so mean.But thank you for caring. he is gone now and resting.
  • take him to a VET! most animal hospitals have a separate fund for if an owner leaves an animal, so don't worry about the money, something can be worked out! even if it's late, there should be an emergency center located in your city that is open 24hours.

  • You can't help the cat, only medical professionals can. If you can't afford to take him to an emergency clinic, you will have to watch him suffer. There is no pain medication you can give him. He will not die if he doesn't eat overnight, but he could die from internal injuries, head trauma, or blood loss. He will not heal himself. He will not be able to eat or drink. If no one can afford to treat him, the very least you can do is have him euthanized so he doesn't continue to suffer. Also, be careful handling the cat as he may become aggressive because of the pain. Handle him as little as possible. You can wrap him in a thick towel to put him in a carrier (or a box). Be careful not to be bitten.
  • I am so, so sad to hear this. Look up and call your closest Emergency Vet's office, they are open all night and will help you with euthanizing this beloved being that is in so much pain. Monday is waaaaay to long for this cat to suffer. Hold him, tell him you love him and care about him and he will be out of pain soon. Just keep loving him, and take him to your closest Emergency Vet. Again, I am so sorry you are going through this and that this beloved cat has been the victim of such a viscious attack.
  • You should have an emergency vet in your city, they're in the phone book. Your regular vet also has a HOME PHONE NUMBER you can look up in the white pages--you know their name, just search for it. Get the cat help, call a friend to drive you if you don't have a car.
  • You NEED to take the cat in to seek medical attention. More then likely it has internal injuries and if you dont take it in it will more then likely be dead by morning or tomarrow night from internal bleeding. There may be nothing that they can do for it either if you take it in but to put it down, that was the only option we had when my cat was attacked by our neighbors hunting dog growing up, you may not want to do it but you dont want it to be in pain and suffer either.
  • That cat just LOVES his roomba, huh? Dog sport: Probably (forgot the name) but it's a Spanish TV game show, and the dog has to maneuver his way through a maze, and the owner/master only can help him by using a special call that the two have previously developed.
  • okay, call your vet while getting the cat in a cage and PUTTING THE PITBULL IN A CRATE. make sure your friend knows what the pitbull did. wrap the kitty in a blanket, try petting him to make him feel better. rush to the vet ASAP. don't let the kitty sit there in pain.
  • call your local animal clinic. Here look it up in the phone book, dial the number, and take a deep breath and they will help.
  • go to the animal hospital. ASAP
  • I found a 1990 VW Cabriolet on eBay motors that I'm considering buying. It has about 80k miles on it and seems to be in good condition just from the sales ad; the seller did say that the convertible top needs replacing and the A/C needs recharging. I'm hoping the car would last another 10 years or so if I bought it (assuming I take good care of it), but I'm really clueless when it comes to cars and I don't even know if that's reasonable to expect. The seller is asking around $1500.
  • Now, I'm on the West Coast of California in the San Franciscco Bay Area where labour costs are among the highest in the nation; hopefully where you are it's less (labour rates per hour run from 100 to 140 per hour at dealerships in the area where I'm at). Convertible tops run in various grades; the original material (the German Happisch type) is expensive and runs about $1200 installed out here, canvas and especially the vinyl (the least expensive to do, but the least durable) are less expensive. The A/C charge can get expensive; the old freon R12 gas is no longer in production in many countries and runs anywhere from $50 per lb and up, and to get the best performance out of your a/c system you need to run the original gas. You can convert your a/c system to run on r134a (the new gas) instead of R12, but even that isn't that cheap to do. In addition, since the system wasn't originally designed for R134a gas, the a/c doesn't cool as well. I haven't had experience with a conversion to the new gas on a VW, but other vehicles that were converted, most people weren't happy with the cooling of a/c after the conversion. Expect to spend from $300 up to convert to the new gas and more depending upon what else is wrong with your a/c system. Now, I don't know what a 1990 VW cabriolet is worth; you can look up the kelly blue book or edmunds.com to get some idea of what the car is worth to determine the cash value of the unit. Deduct for repairs needed, You need to have a service history on the car as well to insure things like the timing belt, water pump and other items were replaced within the last 5-6 years or so, otherwise you'll also need to replace those items as well due to time and/or milage issues. a 1990 VW Cabriolet is not a bad car; first year with a drivers side air bag, so it has an added safety feature that earlier models didn't have, but it doesn't have ABS brakes or passenger side air bag... Have the car checked out either by a dealership or a independent VW specialist, before buying it. Reject the car if it needs too much work; the mechanic can advise you on this. Best of luck in your hunt, hope this helps, a car nut.
  • That is very cheap. So cheap that I suspect a scam. Make sure you don't wire any money or anything remote. Go to the actual car, take it to a reliable mechanic, and then pay cash on the spot. Don't worry about the AC. They all need charging every 3 years or so. And is less then $100. The cloth top is also to be expected, but is not cheap. Could be $1000. Some custom shops can make one cheap. But only 80k miles is unbelieveable. A 20 year old car should have 240k miles. I have an 88 with 320k miles on it, and it still has the original engine, with only the head done. Bottom end is still totally original. Never had any real problem with it. The convertabler is a real keeper. They made very few, and were hand made by Ghia, so are much better quality. They price is about a third of what it should be.
  • 1990 Vw Cabriolet
  • 1990 Cabriolets are less problem prone than the older models. Exterior top replacement costs about $200, plus installation, however any tool savvy person can change it (it comes with instructions). They are a really fun car to drive, very safe and comfortable. There are car forums specific to this car with people that can help you out with this car. www.cabby-info.com even has a buying guide as to what to check and how much to pay. Good Luck!

  • Is this plan totally crazy? My wife and I have been wanting to make a road trip through California for a couple years now. Ive also been wanting purchase a beater pickup to poke around town with... Wife and I have 1 way tickets booked. My plan is to purchase a 1988 Toyota pickup outside of San Fran... Truck is a 4x4, v6, 5sp with 200K miles... Photos look mint inside and out for the age and mileage... Seller said it recently had the timing belt replaced and full service... I'm hoping to purchase the truck for about 3,000+/-. Spend a week driving around Cali Coast along hwy 1 and then Head back East to Mississippi... All told I'm looking at about 2,500 miles of road tripping in a truck that 1 year younger than myself... I'm paying cash and am not really worried about the money.. My biggest concern is just breaking down out in the Desert on I-10 coming back east..... The Hills have eyes movie ruined that part of the country for me.... Other than the obvious concern of whether the truck will make it, I'm totally psyched about the trip... .. I would greatly appreciate any input on what I should be looking for prior to purchasing the vehicle... Any route recommendations would be appreciated also... My goal is to avoid the Rockies as much as possible, while also trying to avoid the no mans land desert.
  • your putting way too much faith and not enough money into a pickup that may or may not be ready for a road trip. I would not take anything on that long of trip unless I had about three weeks to run the pee out of it in town around home first and make sure I checked and had any minor issues taken car of. and that v6 motor is a bit hard on gas the 4 cylinder is the one you want it will go 300 thousand to 400 thousand miles on tune ups and oil changes. I would not expect any used beater pick up to be ready for a road trip sight unseen thats complete idiocy in my opinion. Keep in mind redneck cops profile cars too and some beater looking truck is a perfect target. you would be better off renting a new car for unlimited mileage and make the trip.The savings in fuel alone is well worth the cost and you can get some great rental car deals online when renting for a month.Its not the cali coast highway its california highway one and it is a fairly slow and windy and lengthy process to go down once past pacifica.
  • Just make sure all maintenance is done and change the engine and transmission oil before the trip. Drive 50 miles with new oil before the trip to make sure there are no leaks. Give it a complete tune up.
  • I singed a contract with a shady realtor a month ago and I want out. He won't let me out unless I pay him his commission of at least $8000. He has not shown the home at all and has not advertised it anywhere. It is a mobile home so I went through a mobile home realtor. He looked lagit and said he would get it sold right away because I priced it so low. I priced it really low ($30,000) to get some fast cash and get it out of my hair because I'm not living there and still paying rent for the land. Then I found out that he is advertiseing it for $12,000 over what I was asking. I asked him if I get more if he sells it for that price? He said "no, you still get what you asked for and I (the broker) get the $12,000 in commission". I have a friend willing to give me a little less then what I was asking for in cash tomorrow without the realtor. This contract pretty much covers him to treat me this way, without wording it in a threatining manner. What do I do??
  • the contract does not have his his company's name at the top it is through a listing service. when i called them and asked about the code of ethics they adhear to they said the code of ethics was not available to the public. i thought that was weird. his license number is not on the contract. there is a spot next to his signature for it. how can i find out if he has a license?
  • ~ Net Listing ~ Listing in which the broker's commission is the excess of the sale price over an agreed-upon (net) price to the seller; illegal in some states because it may place the broker in an unethical situation. (In California, it is not illegal) I don't believe there is ANY agent in this world that does enough work that entitles them to a 26 - 29% commission!!! Typical would be 6 - 10% max. First, when following the steps below, do not even mention the fact that you have a friend interested. It's mute at this point & has no bearing on this agent's unethical behavior. It only muddies the water. Keep to the facts. Also, if he is this unethical about the type of listing & commission he is charging you, I shutter to think what he will pull if you tell him you have a buyer of your own. He could record the listing agreement against your property & it will put a cloud on your title in the event you try to sell to your buyer after you get this listing released. He'll perue any unethical means possible, whether he's entitled or not. If this sleaze ball has a broker & by law he should, contact him first immediately. Demand to have your listing released for unethical practices from this creep & use the term "net listing". He is charging you 26% ($8,000) commission to release your listing. He is charging 28.57% ($12,000) in the hopes of securing a buyer. If this yields nothing, call the local MLS, explain your situation & attempts to resolve this at the broker level. You may have to provide a written statement of the facts. They will sometimes release a listing, depending on the circumstances & then start disciplinary actions. I would not bother with the Board Of Realtors unless you know that this office belongs to them. Check & see if the Realtor logo is on his business card & print ads. It is an optional membership & members subscribe to a higher standard ethics. I doubt this agent has any ethics. Note: not all real estate agents are "Realtors". This is an exclusive title you can use ONLY if you are member & agree to their code of ethics. Top rung of the real estate food chain would be your state's Department of Real Estate Licensing. Again, stick to the facts & be prepared to back it up with written documentation. Be swift now Grass Hopper before this crook comes up with a buyer. He has no grounds to sue for a commission until he does. PS: In a net listing situation, he does not have your best interest at heart, only his wallet, which severly compromises his agency duties to you. http://books.google.com/books?id=qrmsoRD...
  • Wow! I don't like hearing stories like this. There are so many honest and ethical Realtors out there, and people like the agent you described make it that much more difficult to earn the public's trust. 1st read your contract carefully. If the agent is doing anything other than what the contract specifies, you'll want to file several complaints. Look at the agents business card...does it say "Realtor" on it? If so, you'll want to contact your local board of Realtors to begin the complaint process. Also, look at your paperwork. Make sure he has given you a form called "duties owed". If he has not given you this form, be sure to include that fact in your complaint. You can also file a complaint with your states licensing division. Lastly, talking with the agent about these complaints you plan on filing may change his mind about how he treats you. ...I feel like I also have mention: If in fact after reading the contract you realize the agent is following the contract, you should simply have an honest conversation with him. Suggest paying the "listing" side of the commission and allowing you to save the "buyers broker" commission since you've found the buyer.
  • First some body is lying: The sale of the property has to have a stated price. The Realtor is paid a percentage of the sale. Read the contract again and see what the percentage is. The Realtor is in breach of contract if they are not selling the property. If you get a buyer, and the Realtor's actions cause a no sale - you can counter suite for breach of contract with damages. It is in the interest of the Sales professional to list a price that is high enough to get the price the seller is willing to sell for. Unless you sell it directly to the realtor, the price paid is paid to you. It is worth the time to read the fine print. If all goes wrong, you should take the property off the market and rent it or move into it.
  • Did you think he was actually working for you...i know, you hired him to work for you and hes helping you pay the max amount for your home. I'm going through the same thing... realtors work for commission. Texas has a real estate commission. I would search the internet for the real estate commission in your state and file a complaint. You may not get anything from it, but he could lose his license depending on your states laws. Um, 12k in commission on a 30k home. No, it does not work that way. He can only get what is required by law, in Texas the sellers realtor gets 6% and half that goes to the buyers agent. You need to tell him you are reporting him to the real estate commission for the state and that he should consider himself fired! You (depending on the laws of your state) can fire him, you probably signed a paper stating you would promise to use him until whatever date but if he is breaking the law ask the commission if that entitles you to void the contract and use someone else. Either way contact your states governing body over real estate agents and talk to them. they will help! Print off the advertised listing, keep all emails, note all calls and what is said (use email as much as possible) get the contract together and file your complaint. Don't feel bad about it, for every one person who files a complaint there are probably thousands more that don't know they can, don't know how and are mad as hell but don't know they have options. If you have been wronged by a realtor, report them, if not for you then for the thousands of others who wanted to but didn't know they could. I just found this web site, it's worth looking at. http://www.usdoj.gov/atr/public/real_est...
  • I think you better read the words of your contract. If the "realtor" as you call him is trying to sell it for $12,000, well, he can only do that if the contract permits. I agree it sound pretty shady. But, I don't what you agreed to, and that tells so much about whether you have a complaint. It sure sounds like you should buy some face time with an attorney
  • Find a real estate attorney have have them go over your listing agreement. Most will give you a free one hour consult. or they may charge you a small fee, but it honestly sounds like it would be worth the cost. Also, find out through your state if this guy is a true licensed BROKER. If he's not, but only has his sales associates license, then you need to go to his broker and tell him what is going on. If the guy is a truely a broker, then you may want to contact the board of Realtors in your area and file a complaint. This guy is giving those of us who follow our code of ethics to a T, a very bad name. If you want, e-mail me his info, including what state and county your in and I can see if I can help you do some digging. driskelrealtor@yahoo.com Good luck!
  • How so? You need to elaborate. If your realtor did you wrong you can go to the Board of Realtors and make a complaint or write them or call them.
  • If everything you are saying is correct, run don't walk with the states board of license and the local realtor board. What this agent/broker is doing is called a net listing and it's against the law.
  • If you want out of the deal then talk to the realtor's broker and explain everything to him and that you want out. Remember you signed a Listing Agreement with the realtor which legal and binding on both parties but it can be terminated. You have to lean on the realtor's broker.
  • what he is doing is super illegal.I believe its called a net listing. The wording of laws does very greatly from state to state but to the best i believe this practice is outlawed in all fifty states, and even in areas where its not specifically stated to be illegal it is still most certaintly unethical. And if you request that he not do that he is required to follow your instruction. otherwise he is in breach of contract. and as far as your friend goes, they can buy it. the contract should only state that he is the only realtor* who can. You keep the right to sell it on your own as a for sale by owner
  • I live in Bakersfield, CA as well. You don't need to register at any hospital. I'm not aware of any free clinics, however you may be able to find some that will charge you based on income (check with Clinica Sierra Vista or Sagebrush Clinic Medical Plaza - their numbers are listed in the local Bakersfield phone book). You can also try the Professional Urgent Care Medical Group. They are an urgent care center and will allow you to pay cash. They are listed in the yellow pages of the local phone book under Urgent Care (look for their display ad there - they offer $15.00 off for cash patients if you mention their ad when calling for an appointment. They are located behind Good Samaritan Hospital off of Olive Drive. Also try Mercy Medi Center, they will allow you to make payments as well. You could trying going to KMC (Kern Medical Center Hospital), but since it is a county hospital, your wait to be seen there will probably be several hours. They will however, set you up with a payment plan. I would try to find a clinic or urgent care to go to; they will be cheaper than going to the emergency room at one of the local hospitals. If your need for medical care is not too urgent, you can also trying going to the Human Services Dept (Welfare Dept.) located at 100 E. California Avenue and fill out an application to see if you are eligible for Medi-Cal, or you can call them at (661) 631-6807. Hope this helps. Best of luck to you.
  • Look in the phone book for a free clinic in your area. And go to your county's health department and apply for Medicaid.
  • First off, you are eligible for medi-cal, go to the dept. of human services and apply, it will cover doctors and medication.. Or you can go to any Clinica Sierra Vista or the Health Dept. and get free care under CHDP.
  • Look up the Dept.of Health in your area. Many times they have free clinics or can refer you to any available for you specific needs.
  • Contact your neares county hospital and inquire about programs that you may qualify for if you meet low income guidelins.
  • Call the hospital and ask.
  • Pay for your own...Kaiser and Blue Cross
  • haha u could get a side job at walmart, they have good benefits I hear.
  • Our tax rates are the lowest in 70 years and have been for over 10 years. Republicans argue that lowering tax rates produces a thriving economy. So why don't we have a thriving economy? And why are Republicans continuing to say something that is simply and obviously not true? Do they really believe people are that dumb? Certainly no one likes to pay taxes but we enjoy the benefits of those taxes in the services our governments provide. We are social animals and benefit from our society and the services that private industry cannot provide and must be provided by our governments. Most likely even hermits that live in caves benefit from higher taxes.
  • Xia, the so called $500 billion tax increase from ObamaCare has been shown to be a bogus claim. ACA, aka ObamaCare, reduces the expenses by $500 billion over the next ten years for Medicare. So Republicans claim their is a cut in Medicare by ACA and later reversed that claim to what you just said that it is a tax increase, which is nonsense. See: http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/201...
  • I think most people are gullible to the Republicans claim that lowering the tax rate produces a thriving economy because they simply do not understand how it works. I can't believe that anyone with a family, trying to hold on to a job & home, could possibly believe all the propaganda being spewed. The last election all we heard was that they could protect us from terrorists & now Obama has proved a better way of taking out terrorists, they're trying the 'no more taxes' lie. Jerry Brown, California's governor has proposed a quarter % sales tax throughout the state & just got approval to move forward with that. It's easier to understand because people buying the expensive items will notice it the most. If they are wealthy enough to but a BMW so be it. I'll stick to Ford! The rich do not pay their fair share of taxes leaving the working middle class paying for socialized programs. The disgusting housing market in CA has turned into a fiasco of the rich buying up houses that people have lost & turning them into rentals. They are buying up short sale properties, offering cash, & beating out regular buyers from becoming home owners. The low interest rate would be great if people could actually get one of these houses. The middle class are being eliminated. Rents are going up of course. Romney wants low taxes on the money he still has in the USA. He's the ultimate tax evader. Most of his billions are in foreign banks. He's a hypercrit. The companies he ran into the ground outsourced the jobs to China & India, another way of avoiding taxes. Outsourcing is the main reasons the middle class are without jobs. I totally agree with you about Obamacare, & support it. I grew up in a country with socialized medicine. It works & is a human right. Those of us with health care already pay about $2,000 a year, hidden in our premiums, to cover the uninsured. Get real America. You can bet the pharmaceutical companies are probably behind all the lies being spewed about Obamacare. Their ridiculous profits will be affected.
  • The problem lies in understanding the role of taxes. while we have the lowest tax rates in our history, we forget the role of taxes is to help our government and in turn help program programs in our economic sector. When people say government should not or cannot provide jobs, this is not only a lie but historically untrue. Our economy is several areas is based on a value engineered product such as food production, automobiles etc. These products have come to be known across the world as great products enough so other nations have to compete with their own or we swamp them. A Mercedes or a BMW or a Cadillac is such a product also but built into these products in governments role is providing a cost haven for training. Our society has always been an agreement upon between government's role, the role of business and the role of the citizen worker, saver and buyer.
  • the economy will not be fix, we are in to much in dead, we pay 350b. in interesting per month and the deface is round 14 tr. the good time are all over and we decline rapidly with no return.mr obama try very hard but he will not sexed Republicans wan the taxes lowe to help become Richer and scuzzy the middle man. will be a disaster if the Republican win th w,house
  • our economy is based on a debt based monetary system, which is destined to fail.. its only a matter of time, it is mathematically impossible to pay interest on every dollar created .. but that is what the federal reserve system of banking requires, the handful of people that own/run the federal reserve get immensely rich which the entire country get poorer. and there is no President or tax policy that will change this.. unless the federal reserve is ended
  • Well.....Not the lowest anymore. We just got hit with a $500 Billion tax increase thanks to ObamaCare. Supreme court ruled its a tax, so it must be a tax. REALLY? It isnt a tax??? Then why is the only reason its still in place is because the SUPREME COURT said that its a tax, so ObamaCare stands... so you dont keep up with the news huh?
  • Because you're in a down turn silly. In a down turn there is less consumption and therefore less economic growth. Don't let Obama tell you otherwise. Wow two down votes? Didn't think I had to spell it out... and by lowering taxes it encourages spending so in theory you're going to have better economic growth. IN THEORY
  • In a global economy, our standard of living has to decrease greatly to match the rest of the planet.
  • Wait a minute. You libtrolls have been telling us for three years now that the economy is recovering. Make up your mind...
  • What do you mean the economy's not thriving? Obama says the economy is doing fine so it is. Stop being racist!
  • What kinds of fees do I have to pay in order to take someone to small claims court in Chicago (suburbs)? I'm confident I'll win so if there are fees can I get the defendant to pay these AND the money they owe me? My case: I paid a $50 RUT-50 (title transfer) fee to the currency exchange plus their $10 fee for a total of $60. Long story short: they neglected to pay the state and I was held responsible. After months of visiting the currency exchange and basically being told "check's in the mail," the State's late fees added up to $110 and I was being threatened with legal action, so I had to pay it on top of the original $60. The currency exchange is offering to reimburse me only $60. I have all of my documentation from the original "paid" receipt to letters from the state.
  • There are fees to file in any court, however if you win your case, the judge generally awards you the amount you sued for PLUS all of the fees you spent. Typical fees are: 1) Filing fee: Generally around $20 (here in California) 2) Process service: You can do this by certified mail (about $10 if you get all the bells and whistles) if you think that they will accept it - but they do not have to and your case goes back to 'go' and you will need to either try again, or you can have a process agency do it. Their fees will range from $50 to $100 or so. If you win the case, and if the defendant does not appeal and then they do not pay you, you will then need to collect your money. That may involve additional fees but those too are collectable from the defendant they may include: 3) Getting an order of judgement (or whatever it is called in your jurisdiction) from the clerk - this certifies that you are owed the money, plus interest from the date of judgement (around 7% which is pretty good money today) 4) Collection costs: Since they are a business, you can simply hire the Sheriff to do a 'till tap'. In this a deputy goes to the place of business, serves the order and literally takes the money out of a the cash register and gives them a receipt. This usually costs between $50 and $100 which you pay up front and they collect for you at the same time. Once collected the County sends you a check in a couple of weeks. That's about it.
  • There will be a filing fee. Not sure what it is in Chicago, but in Milwaukee County (same region of the country) the filing fee is about $93, and this is roughly in line with the rest of the country. Expect to pay at least $85 to file, possibly up to $100. Probably not worth it to just get back $110, and really, you'd only come out ahead about $50 since they are already offering you $60. So to sue, you would probably only wind up with a net gain of $15-20 after you win $110 and minus the filing fee, and if you don't sue, you get $60, plus you don't have to spend all day at small claims court. Probably not worth filing the suit. Try writing them a letter threatening a suit to see if they will up the offer. If they fear a suit they may offer more to avoid paying an attorney to fight the claim in court.
  • YES! There is a filing fee - which is very expensive, and the money you will have to pay to serve process. There may be other fees, depending on what your legal action requires. It will cost you more than the $110 you owe.
  • Yes, there are fees associated with small claims court. Yes, you can ask the judge to award you court costs as part of the judgement. No, they don't always honor this request.
  • Usually there are filing fees. Call the Court Clerk.
  • it does cost to take someone to small claims court but if you win the person who you file against will have to pay all cost

Hi seller, Thanks for your response.Hope everything is going on smoothly?i am please with the condition and price of your item.I would have love to come and take a look at it,i'm very busy due to the nature of my work am right now in California to plan a wedding,which will take days before i get back home and i have promised my child something special on is birthday.I will also include $100.00 to cover the shipping and handling through Us Postal Service.get back to me with your PayPal email address or send a payment request so that i can remit the funds into your account,because PayPal is very secure way of doing business online.Just in case you don't have an account just sign up on www.paypal.com and don't forget to email when you are done. Hope to read from you soon Best Regards
  • 100% scam. There is no buyer. There is only a scammer trying to steal your ipod. The scammer isn't interested in your identity or bank account only in convincing you to ship your possession to him without him sending a penny. The next email will be from another of the scammer's fake names and free email addresses pretending to be "ebay/yahoo/paypal buyer's protection program" saying "kindly send the tracking number and we will release the funds". Paypal does NOT send such emails, ever. Paypal does NOT have escrow or money holding services like that scammer describes. Paypal does NOT demand you send a tracking number before money is sent. EVER. No exceptions. Now that you have responded to a scammer, you are on his 'potential sucker' list, he will try again to separate you from your cash. He will send you more emails from his other free email addresses using another of his fake names with all kinds of stories of being the perfect buyer, great jobs, lottery winnings, millions in the bank and desperate, lonely, sexy singles. He will sell your email address to all his scamming buddies who will also send you dozens of fake emails all with the exact same goal, you sending them your cash via Western Union or moneygram. You could post up the email address and the emails themselves that the scammer is using, it will help make your post more googlable for other suspicious potential victims to find when looking for information. Do you know how to check the header of a received email? If not, you could google for information. Being able to read the header to determine the geographic location an email originated from will help you weed out the most obvious scams and scammers. Then delete and block that scammer. Don't bother to tell him that you know he is a scammer, it isn't worth your effort. He has one job in life, convincing victims to send him their hard-earned cash. Whenever suspicious or just plain curious, google everything, website addresses, names used, companies mentioned, phone numbers given, all email addresses, even sentences from the emails as you might be unpleasantly surprised at what you find already posted online. You can also post/ask here and every scam-warner-anti-fraud-busting site you can find before taking a chance and losing money to a scammer. If you google "yahoo buyer's protection program scam", "fake paypal email scam", "ebay escrow fraud" or something similar you will find hundreds of posts from victims and near victims of this type of scam.

  • how much money will you be expecting? If it's a large lump sum then you should probably avoid the deal since people never pay cash upfront for car that cost 5g to 10g+. It's common sense to do some background check before you initiate these kind of transactions with anyone. Based on your description, the guy seems a bit shady. Ask for some verification.
  • it's a scam. Clue #1 - he never says what you are selling. He says "your item" meaning he sends the same email out to everyone with anything for sale Clue #2 - this is a scammer from overseas, you can tell from the odd grammar and small "i" -- "i am please with the condition" Clue #3 - he says he is out of town and asks you to ship. Craiglist is for face to face transactions and they say to NEVER sell to anyone you can't meet you face to face Clue #4 -he offers MORE than what you were asking. A real buyer either accepts your price or tries to negotiate down Clue #5 - NEVER give your Paypal info for any reason. They will either send you a spoofed Paypal email that looks official but there is no money, or they pay with a hacked paypal account which gets refunded to the real owner, or they have you send to an "unverified" address then file a chargeback -- and if you don't have proof the item was delivered to the Paypal verified mailing address and signed for by the account holder, Paypal refunds the money to the buyer I personally wouldn't write back at all and am surprised you only got one email like this. Normally with electronics you'll get at least 4-5 all with the same story If you do want to write back, say that you cannot open a Paypal account as you don't have a bank account and if he wants it he either needs to send you money through Western Union or have one of his friends pay you in cash or you have another buyer who can pay you in cash tomorrow that you will sell to Read Craigslist scam warnings - this has all the signs of a scam http://www.craigslist.org/about/scams# DEAL LOCALLY WITH FOLKS YOU CAN MEET IN PERSON - follow this one rule and avoid 99% of scam attempts on craigslist. # NEVER GIVE OUT FINANCIAL INFORMATION (bank account number, social security number, eBay/PayPal info, etc.) # AVOID DEALS INVOLVING SHIPPING OR ESCROW SERVICES and know that ONLY A SCAMMER WILL "GUARANTEE" YOUR TRANSACTION.

  • I don't really trust craigslist, unless they come to your house.. So no i wouldn't trust them. I was selling my gold necklace on their and they told me to it to them and they send the money to my paypal. Many people on there are scammers so like i said see them in person. Otherwise I would go on ebay there protection is much better. The only downfall is they take 5% i think. Good Luck :)
  • My daughter sold diamond solitaire ear rings using paypal, and had a definite no return policy posted in the ad. She sent the ear rings and the buyer complained to paypal that she didn't agree with the quality...paypal reimbursed the buyer and my Daughter never received the ear rings back. You can't trust paypal either.
  • Have them send you the money via PayPal. Once you have a confirmation from PayPal that the money is in your PayPal account, only then send the item. If the money is on hold or something in your PayPal account, do not send the item yet. If you do it like this, nothing can go wrong. But if you want to be even more certain, once you receive this confirmation from PayPal, transfer the money from PayPal to your normal bank account first and once you have it on your normal bank account, then send the item.
  • he has terrible grammar and spelling, for that i wouldnt sell it to him. sounds fishy.
  • I was wondering about some of the conditions i should be expecting when i head into bootcamp. I mean like how will the officer's treat you, how is some of the physical training, and will there be a lot of school work? Also it is my understanding that the moment you enter bootcamp is when you start getting paid is this true? and also where is tech school?
  • First off, the Air Force doesn't call it Boot Camp. It's called Basic Military Training. The PT regimen is fairly easy if you're in average shape. If you're in good shape, it's a cake-walk. If you're in lousy shape it's pretty rough. Work yourself up to 100 situps and pushups and 30 pullups and be able to run 1.5 miles in under 15 minutes and you'll be well ahead of most folks there. The Air Force focuses more heavily on classroom training than the rest of the services but the physical aspect is much more involved than it was in past decades. You'll have little or no contact with officers aside from your squadron commander. The Military Training Instructors or "TIs" as they're known are another story entirely. They'll be in your face pretty much from reveille to taps. They're not physically abusive but you probably won't want to cross any of them either. Tech School will depend upon your career field. The major Tech Schools are located at Goodfellow, Lackland, and Sheppard Air Force bases in Texas; Keesler Air Force Base in Mississippi; and Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. You'll be paid starting with day one, however it may be a few days before you see any money. You'll generally receive 2 cash payments while in BMTS, one shortly after your arrival and one at the midpoint of your stay. For the most part those will be enough to defray your costs for personal care items (soap, shaving supplies, deodorant, etc.) and a little extra for "mad money" though you won't have a lot of time for "discretionary spending" if you catch my drift. You'll receive a catch-up payment when you leave BMTS (part in cash and most as a check) and will have to set up a bank account once you arrive at Tech School to have your regular pay deposited to. The Air Force requires you to have your pay deposited directly to your bank account. They only waive that for folks who cannot maintain a bank account, so know how to balance a checkbook before you ship out! That will be covered briefly in BMTS but it's something the everyone should know how to do well before arriving at Happy Valley!
  • Yes, you start getting paid the day you leave the MEPS station. You're tech school is most likely going to be Lackland AFB in Texas, but possibly elsewhere. There's a lot of classroom time along with all the physical regime involved in basic. They'll teach you everything from how to march, how to wear your uniform, general military etiquite, to marksmanship. Upon completion of basic training, you'll go to tech school to learn all of your job specific training. No worries though, they won't throw you in on day one and expect you to know everything. They take it one day at a time.
  • she can carry tweezers yet she isn't meant to pluck her eyebrows. she can't shave her legs the two, she can no longer have any time to do stuff like that. who's she attempting to look notably for in difficulty-loose coaching? The MTI will say the same element i will, no one. Getting by using difficulty-loose is ideal precedence, each and every thing else 2nd.
  • Yes, illegals have been collecting welfare for years. Just because the case isn't in the illegal's name doesn't mean the checks aren't. (the names on the cases belong to the precious little anchor babies, and mommy collects the money) Meanwhile daddy is working under the table somewhere, not paying taxes. Stop trying to lie to people with the claims "illegals don't get welfare" It's BS and we know it is. And another thing, if illegals didn't get welfare, why would advocacy groups raise such a stink when we try to pass laws barring them from it? you want documentation? here's some from California's social services department. 1999 http://www.cdss.ca.gov/research/res/pdf/...highlights of that document 31% of all cases were classified as "child only" 43 % of all child only cases are due to non-citizen parents on average, child only cases receive $73 dollars less then other cases 2006 http://www.cdss.ca.gov/research/res/pdf/...53% of all cases were classified as "child only" 2006 cost analysis http://www.cdss.ca.gov/research/res/pdf/...the average cash benefit for all cases is $520 a month and an average of $480 for no-parent cases the average amount for food stamps is $85-100 a month PER PERSON. So if the mom has 3 anchor babies she receives $520 in cash and $270 in food stamps a total of $790 a month while daddy works under the table, or she does, and even if they both do.
  • fact is that a lot of Them are cooling Their Heels in an exceptionally large detention center we've, basically up the line from the place I stay. They used to fill the detention center's in Toronto yet now We deliver them to different extra present day Jails that have basically been outfitted. This truly bothers The Illegals as a results of fact Their legal Representatives customarily stay in Toronto ninety miles away. From the time they're placed into Custody till Their case is going previously the Courts actually takes 6+ months . And maximum of Them are deported returned to Their abode united states of america. in assessment to in u . s . ( California , Georgia ) the place a unlawful can disguise below a Tree or interior the wooded area for an prolonged time . This turns into impossible right here in Canada . The Temperature final night became -27C or approximately -20F and interior the summertime the Mosquitoes and Black Flies will consume a guy or woman up in one night in the event that they arrive to a decision to sleep outdoors. additionally absolutely everyone who's shown to offer a unlawful a activity additionally faces some severe effects . this implies to flow into Canada Illegally and need to stay to tell the story is an exceptionally puzzling element to do. at the instant we've many extra unemployed persons searching for jobs than we want so for a unlawful to flow into and think of they could locate employment is a myth extra advantageous than a actuality.
  • where do you live? where i live they are denied by colleges, and all people have to prove citizenship before consideration for foodstamps or welfare. if your so unhappy you can move over here. but i am pretty sure that someone has givin you some bad info which is not your fault. if you want to know if it is true call up the office that handles the govt benefits in your area and ask them. also call up some colleges and ask them what their policies are on illegals on their campuses/universities. the only education that is given to illegals is to minorities because it is the law for all children in the usa to attend school until they reach 18, if you want that law amended to mean only children that are citizens then that would solve that problem, at what cost? i dont realy know. as far as those laws back from 2006? well immigration laws and illegal immigrant laws have been changing so rapidly that useing facts from a year ago is very outdated, and inaccurate in the present times.
  • Yes of course they do, but thankfully the welfare system is finally trying to straighten this out, slowly, due to making sure innocent Americans do not get punished for needing a help up in a time of need. Shilo9i: You got the part about wanting to make money, but actually being a part of society, well nope. Yes, welfare pays little, but when you come from a country with nothing, a little is a big thing, especially when you do not have to work while still getting free money and food!
  • i agree with everyone that says to get ur facts straight "quiet jackie" haha i guess someone couldnt handle her answer dont blame her for telling u how it is suck it up >=) and illegals dont get food stamps if u were smart u would know that in order to do that u need a SS but since they're illegals they dont have one and yeah they get college education cuz they're smart!! its called a scholarship
  • No I have never seen an illegal alien doing any of that stuff. But then I don't ever go into a welfare office like other American parasites do. I work for a living. I did go to college and I never saw any of them their either. And as far as food stamps go they have like a credit card here in Arizona, I saw a couple of trailer looking people using one in the grocery store one time.
  • How can they get welfare or food stamps without being found out?! You need a social secutiry number to get either of those things, so if any illegal immigrant tried to sign up, the authorities would find out they don't have a social security number. Only U.S. citizens can get social security numbers. Nice try though. I suppose that is the latest scare tactic from all you racist anti-immigration fanatics?
  • Well said! Ask the workers who don't speak English in front of Home Depot...they work for cash and pay no taxes. They also send a lot of money back home.
  • This is one of the anti's myth, they use to create a climate of fear lies, They never post documentation from neutral sources, Government and respected Universities. They also do not know that undocumented are not eligible for mandated Federal programs, Food Stamp,Welfare etc, they pull these trillion dollars figure out off the air. If your facts are true they could be backed up by creditable documentation.
  • But you know what, these illegals don't have the same kind of values and reasoning as you and I. They would keep sucking the system dry with a smirk on their face even if you yell at them in their face. THEY BLOODY DON"T CARE HOW THE AMERICANS FEEL ABOUT THIS, THEY JUST WANT ALL THE FREE GOODIES!! Kristian D, reading what you wrote is like hearing the Surgeon General telling the citizens that there's no connection between smoking and lung cancer.
  • Hello. Please, I would not appreciate any response that suggests "I should have known better". I sold my car to a person in another state via eBay. The buyer paid their deposit by eCheck to PayPal, and because of timing and availability, I delivered the car to him and received the balance of the purchase price in cash. Once the vehicle was delivered, and the sale "completed", the buyer's bank declined payment of the eCheck. The buyer did sign a Bill of Sale that indicated the transaction would be complete upon clearing of the check and balance paid. Back when I was in school, I vaguely remember that lawsuits across state lines had to go through federal court, does that apply for small claims? a) If I can file in a state court, which state would hold jurisdiction, the seller's state or the buyer's state? b) I realize in a small claims suit, I can file for actual damages and court costs, can I file for punitive damages? Thank you for your advice!
  • Here we go again, can we get some locations? =p The jurisdiction will always be where the sale accorded or where the seller is located, unless the buyer is in default. Here's an example. Suppose you purchased an item from an online store. If the buyer is in the same State as the seller, then the buyer has to pay the sales tax. However, if the buyer is in another State, then no sales tax can be collected by the seller or the State; unless of course a mutual agreement which will never exist because double taxation laws. =D Here's the answer: Personal Jurisdiction: Court must have binding jurisdiction over the defendant. Usually means a legal resident over the defendant's court jurisdiction. Quasi in rem Jurisdiction is usually by absence and not for you particular matter. Subject-matter jurisdiction: Yes and no. This jurisdiction is pretty much the courts power on which particular cases the State or Federal government grants to the court. In California, this case would be heard in small claims court because the bill non payment does not exceeds $7,500. Even if it did exceeded $7,500, the defendant would be only obligated to pay with only a written contract for the payment since the sale was over $500. If I recall correctly, this is called the Statute of Fraud. Oral agreements are not enforceable if the contract falls under the Statute of Fraud if the contract is obligated to do so. Other things for SoF is like marriage, land sales and I think sureties and services require written contracts. Though, good attorneys can "flip the script" just like how Pamela Anderson 1 million over an oral agreemnt...though I do not remember the case thoroughly. So the ANSWER to your question is this: You must sue the defendant in his/her legal residential court jurisdiction unless he/she in another country and can do a quasi in rem. =D Things you should do. You really do not need a contract because Ebay is like one. The guy bid, won and received the goods, therefore obligated to pay the remaining balance. What you should do repose the vehicle if you want the car and not the money, or sue him if you want the remaining balance and not the car. Now, the seller is only in violation under 2 entities: The State laws and Federal laws. Notice I spelled State, no plural form. This is based off the Sellers location if the seller commits a breach of contract. =p One more thing Federal courts only enforce Federal laws, not State laws. States courts can only enforce State Laws unless the Federal government grants the State the power to enforce over a Federal violation. FOR ANY issues arising across parties from different States, the Federal government will only enforce crimes not civil matters since that's completely covered in the US Constitution under "States reserved Powers" clause. That's why the Federal government can prosecute you for a crime or tort, and the State can also, because of this clause establishing 2 different jurisdictions and therefore no double jeopardy.
  • You should have known better, It must go through a federal court, just rack it up as a loss.
  • go to the small claims court in your local town.
  • I was apprehended for shoplifting a jacket at lord and taylor that i did not steal. It was my jacket i had in my bag that lord and taylor sells. This is what happen i had the jacket in my bag since i walked in, i wanted to try on another jacket same one but a different color i went to the fitting room tried it on left it in the fitting room left the fitting room walked out side and was arrested and said i stole the MY jacket that was in my bag. There was no camera proof of me stealing a jacket or anything all suspicion. Now im forced to pay $500 dollars to lord and taylor. I called the law office that represents them and they said i cant do anything only thing is to go to court but then i have to pay for a lawyer and court fees that would probably cost more then the fee. The question is will they even persue the case if i decline to pay it if they have no proof to show in court or they do not need proof because its a civil claim.
  • The jacket is mine i been had it for about a month i put it in my bag because i was hot walking around in the heated mall with it. The jacket was in the bag before i went inside the store because i was in a mall. The jacket has a rip in it but they said that i pulled the censor off. They used scare tactics they pressured me to sign a paper stating i stole it or they would hold me and i wouldn't be able to go to court because it was the weekend and basically pressured me and used scare tactics. They said i could decline to pay it but they could take me to court but im asking also would they take me if they have no evidence like video camera of me stealing it.
  • I did sign the paper stating i stole it but they did not make it clear to what i was signing they handed me 2 papers they told me it was a tresspassing paper after i signed it they made it clear what it was. I called there law office and declined to pay do you think they will persue the case for 500 if theres no video evidence. I do not have money for a lawyer could i represent my self.
  • It appears you are only asking about CIVIL issues and not Criminal ones relating to the arrest so...... Ok.. so you walked in with a $500 dollar jacket on. To purchase something like that most people use a credit card or write a check. Nobody plunks down cash. So find the receipt or the record and let them come after you. YOu do not have to pay anyone anything at this time. Let them sue you. That lawyer costs L&T at least $200 per hour and he is not going to make them any money by suing you for $500. Instead you may get a small claims summons and have to appear before that court. Typically such letters are used to simply scare you into coughing up the money if you do not pay then the onus is back on them to poop or get off the pot In Small Claims you defend yourself and need a much lower standard of proof. YOu also are allowed to file a counter suit (on their nickle) for malicious prosecution if, in fact, they have no proof that you stole it. From your end of the table all you need to do is either: 1) Provide copies of the receipts or canceled checks to the court to prove you bought the jacket. If it was a gift, contact the person that gave it to you and get a statement (notarized) 2) Bring in witness that have seen you wearing the jacket prior to the arrest. BUT.. if they have you on video, or if the tags were still on the jacket, your case is toast. Lastly.. did you get the jacket back? If not your propert response should be to write them, refuting their allegations and demanding the return of YOUR jacket. If they do not you can take THEM to court if you can provide the proof noted above and get your jacket PLUS perhaps a few dollars in penalty. Small claims court is a simple process whcih costs about $20 here in California. Since you have the lawyers address you can do service by mail .. (even simpler). good luck... .
  • do you not have the original receipt for the jacket that you did buy??? would solve a lot of things plus of course they would have you on tape showing that you slipped your jacket into your bag. Personally I would have asked for the police to have been called if I was so much in the right, after all if it was my jacket then it would have stuff in the pockets or something like that, show signs of wear, ie could smell my perfume on it etc tec, thus showing them that it was not theirs. Was there a fitting room person.....if so ALWAYS show them what you have in your bag before you enter.......and to be honest our store policy is that shopping bags do NOT enter the rooms, thy stay up front with us. edit: then go to the mall security office and ask for the cctv clip of you entering the mall WEARING said jacket, sorry but something about this does not add up, I would have been more than happy to wait for the police to turn up and let them see me entering th mall wearing the jacket they say I stole, at that point more than likely would have been pressing charges on them and wtf do you mean they pressured you into signing........and used scare tactics...... why did you not pull out your cell phone and call the police your self!!!! If i was SO innocent and could prove / show them they was wrong then would be nothing that could make me sign a dang thing.
  • If you signed a paper admitting to stealing the jacket, you're in trouble. You can try ignoring it or producing a receipt as suggested above but since you admitted to it you might need to hire an attorney to get you off the hook. If you have the resources you can hire one and then sue L&T to get them to pay your attorney's fees after you have cleared your name. It sounds like they were threatening to kidnap you unless you signed the paper.
  • they're civil expenses which isn't like criminal, yet verify with the courtroom clerk in case you do no longer prefer to pay a lawyer to ask. this is solid you're cleansing up your act using fact they could reserve the main suitable suited to press criminal expenses in case you do no longer pay up or do regardless of they ask, so this is solid you found out your lesson. all of us makes errors. Forgive your self and don't do it lower back. when you do your homework and pay up, positioned it in the previous.
  • Since when is shoplifting a civil case? It is actually a violation of the law........which makes it criminal.
  • The lawyer is full of it. Just ignore it.
  • Hello. I'm traveling from LA to vancouver, canada for the first time and need some informations. If anyone can help me, greatly appreciated. 1) document: I was immigrant and got naturalized in NY. Do I need to carry the naturalization certificate? if so, is copy ok? 2)passport: I got it when I was in NY and it says NY under "authority" section. Does it matter since I'm traveling from CA? do i need to change passport? 3)credit card and debit card: I found out that I can use my ATM card from chase and discover. But, I'm wondering, do I save any money if I change my US dollar to canadian currency and use canadian currency as opposed to just using my ATM card in canada? Or, it makes no difference? Thanks.
  • Do you have a USA passport. The answer is YES or NO not where you applied for it. A USA passport is good for the ENTIRE country of the USA California is still part of the USA. There are bank fees when use a machine. Usually a fee for each transaction. You will need to check with your Bank which banks they deal with in Canada for the lowest bank fees. Using the machine gives you Canadian cash. Use machines that are the banks. Private mahines have EXTRA fees. There are two major systems look on the back of your card. Cirrus and PLUS are the two main systems in Canada. The machines are clearly marked what system they are part of. You can use a Regular Credit Card. Discover is not big in Canada. Master Card and Visa are better for this. Your ATM card will not always work at the stores in Canada to pay for your things. Just use the credit card . You can transfer your money at a bank machine to give you credit on your card. Use larger transactions at the machines. The fees are for each time you use the card. Use cash for your small items. You save the most when you do the fewest amount of exchanges(transactions) Enjoy your visit to Vancouver. Having a small amount of Canadian cash when you arrive helps for the little things like riding the train from the Airport to your Hotel. Or getting a coffee in the Food Court.(Smaller bills. $100 bills are not always taken for a SMALL purchase. There are bank machines in the Vancouver Airport operated by SOME of the Major banks. The rate is the same at ALL of the BANKS machines.(Airport or in the City) You can get address on line from the bank web sites. There are many in the city centre of Vancouver. http://www.yvr.ca/en/shopping-dining-ser...
  • 1) - you don't need to carry naturalization papers 2) - the passport is valid from anywhere in the US 3) - credit card companies charge you for converting currency. You'd be better off to convert it at your bank and bring Canadian money, or bank drafts in Canadian currency.
  • u need a american passport and Canadian money would be best to use in Vancouver.
  • It is generally not required, and in some cases illegal for any company to require your SSN as identification. However, most companies have a loophole where they require a credit-check on you / your credit history. They may also require it if you want insurance on your phone. If you provide satisfactory payment for your device and plan, then they have no legal reason to require your SSN. You should be able to get a phone from someone. If you have to, do business with a company in California, since they seem to have very good privacy protection rules. Check the privacyrights website below for links to laws and rules about using SSNs. Also, there's an excellent resource - kind of an encyclopedia or wiki about all things related to mobile phones - at Howard's Forums - link below. I did a quick search there, and did NOT find anything to help - but you might find what you need if you look there and spend more than the 90 seconds I did. Lastly, ask the provider what the policy is if you aren't a US citizen? Say, for instance you are here working for your (other country) consulate and want your own private phone to use. Or maybe you are a student here, and you want to be able to text & twitter like all your peers. You just don't have an SSN, or haven't gotten around to filing yet. In the case of non-citizenry, they might have a policy that resricts exporting certain technology from the US, but they probably still want your money. If you wave enough cash - say you outright buy a $300 phone and pre-pay a year of service.. they'll be falling over themselves to help you. Of course, if you need to work for your money like the rest of us - that is an awfully expensive option. Maybe if you tell the sales person you are a battered husband/wife/child.. ( other victim of violence) and you are hiding from your attacker - just moved here, and I don't want any private investigators to find me using SSN... they may be sympathetic. Give them a plausible reason + enough reason to trust you + some up-front cash, and you should be able to work through this.. or as some might say "social engineer" your way through. Good luck!
  • Don't let them do it. They will get into a lot of trouble. If they are trying to get a green card, they wouldn't have a social security number to begin with? would they?
  • I posted an item on eBay last night as an auction and buy it now. By this morning the item had sold buy it now. This item sold for $750 plus shipping. The buyer contacted me to through eBay message to send them an invoice via paypal with the total amount owed. They included there adress which is in India (I'm in California) so that I could send them the PayPal request directly. I thought this was strange because eBay provides all this information when making a purchase. My question is if continue with the transaction with the way they requested am I liable to be scammed? What risk am I taking with this transaction? And what can I do to cover myself as much as possible?
  • 100% scam. There is no buyer. YES, if you continue with the transaction you will be scammed. You are risking losing your possession and never being paid. To cover yourself as much as possible, only do this deal and all others withing the rules of eBay and never outside. There is only a scammer trying to steal your possession, your electronic item, name brand clothing or jewelry. The scammer isn't interested in your identity or bank account only in convincing you to ship your possession to him without him sending you a penny. The REAL reason the scammer wants you to send a Paypal invoice is so that the Paypal transaction takes place outside of eBay. Any Paypal transaction done outside of eBay do NOT have the same protections as ones done within eBay. The next email will be from another of the scammer's fake names and free email addresses pretending to be "Paypal" saying "kindly send the tracking number and we will release the funds". Paypal does NOT send such emails, ever. Paypal does NOT have escrow or money holding services like that scammer describes. Paypal does NOT demand you send a tracking number before money is sent. EVER. No exceptions. Now that you have responded to a scammer, you are on his 'potential sucker' list, he will try again to separate you from your cash. He will send you more emails from his other free email addresses using another of his fake names with all kinds of stories of being the perfect buyer, great jobs, lottery winnings, millions in the bank and desperate, lonely, sexy singles. He will sell your email address to all his scamming buddies who will also send you dozens of fake emails all with the exact same goal, you sending them your cash via Western Union or moneygram. You could post up the email address and the emails themselves that the scammer is using, it will help make your post more googlable for other suspicious potential victims to find when looking for information. Do you know how to check the header of a received email? If not, you could google for information. Being able to read the header to determine the geographic location an email originated from will help you weed out the most obvious scams and scammers. Then delete and block that scammer. Don't bother to tell him that you know he is a scammer, it isn't worth your effort. He has one job in life, convincing victims to send him their hard-earned cash. Whenever suspicious or just plain curious, google everything, website addresses, names used, companies mentioned, phone numbers given, all email addresses, even sentences from the emails as you might be unpleasantly surprised at what you find already posted online. You can also post/ask here and every scam-warner-anti-fraud-busting site you can find before taking a chance and losing money to a scammer. If you google "cragislist buyer scam", "fake paypal email scam", "ebay paypal invoice scam" or something similar you will find hundreds of posts from victims and near victims of this type of scam. Check out the one and only official paypal website, read up on what paypal does and how it really works.
  • Ebay Buyer Scam
  • This IS a SCAM. There is NO reason for you to invoice them - that would be an offsite transaction meaning you have NO protection from Ebay or Paypal once they file a chargeback after you have sent the item They have to pay through Ebay's payment page, a buyer NEVER asks you for your Paypal details or asks you to send a paypal request to them. Give them once chance - write back to say that you WILL NOT send them a paypal request directly and he has to pay on Ebay and if he does not pay within 24 hours you are filing a non-payment dispute. Do not offer the Buy it Now option - you will be targeted by scammers. Also unless you have sold at least 20 items on Ebay, make sure your settings show that you DO NOT ship internationally AND make sure your listing clearly states that you will ONLY ship to a verified address. Scammers target newbies mainly with Buy it Now and want you to ship to unverified addresses knowing you have NO protection when they contact Ebay to falsely claim their account was hacked and there is an unauthorized purchase.
  • That's awful. You've been scammed. I suggest you go to ebay and explain the situation. They may be able to help. I see the issue as one of proof. You know the serial number is different. So, your objective is proving that, because it will establish your story. You may also want to contact other sellers who have experience with this buyer and see what kind of problems they experienced. Once Ebay can get the facts, this buyer will get banned from ebay. Hopefully, you can recover your funds and or former unit.
  • Not necessarily a scammer. If they are in India and your article says $750 plus shipping, obviously you need to find out how much tracked shipping to India is so you can add that amount onto the invoice which you send them (through eBay) which they pay. Your invoice won't have a shipping cost in it until you update it as necessary. Thats why they are asking you you to send them an updated invoice. Then when they get that invoice they can pay you. PayPal invoices can only go to PayPal email addresses (that is the account number) they are giving you the address for the invoice so you know it's India you are shipping to and it's a shipping cost for an Indian address that you include in your PayPal invoice.
  • Of course it's a scam. Any and all invoicing is done through the eBay website. Anyone asking you to do something outside eBay is a scammer. Tell him to stick to the eBay guidelines, and pay you first via the eBay/PayPal process. If he refuses, you then know for sure he's a scammer. personally, I would report him for fraud, block him from all of your auctions in future, and re-list the item. Specify that there is no sales outside the USA if you wish.
  • It's either a scam or the guy doesn't know how to use eBay. There's no need at all for you to invoice anything. eBay does that as soon as the buyer hits the Buy It Now button and confirms their intention to buy. Insist that they use eBay's purchasing tools, or forget about the purchase. If they persist, tell them you're reporting them to eBay for violating the terms and conditions of the site.
  • Ebay Fraud Buyer
  • When you list your item, you can opt to choose where you want to ship. Always put only the contiguous U.S., not Alaska, Hawaii or any foreign locale. Make sure you put that in your listing in big letters. Ask buyer where he wants it shipped, then tell him you can't do that. Go to Ebay customer support and cancel his bid. Then go to your account and block him as bidder, so he can't bid on it again when you re-list. Do this right away, before he pays you. Yes, you are probably being scammed. It's a good thing you caught it when you did because you can still stop the deal.
  • I think that you are dealing with a scammer. They want your email address so that they can send you a fake email. The email will look like a PayPal email but it will be fake. It will tell you that PayPal is holding on to your money until you enter a tracking number for the shipment. Of course, PayPal never actually does this and there is no money pending.
  • You have two choices. If your niece's mother is cooperative with you getting guardianship, then you don't have to involve CPS. Guardianship actually doesn't go through family court in California, it goes through Probate Court (I have no idea why). You can get the paperwork, have the mother sign it, and then return it to the court. They will grant temporary guardianship and schedule a hearing for permanent guardianship. Once you have permanent guardianship, you can call the local child abuse hotline and make a CPS referral. They will meet with you, check your guardianship status and then open a guardianship case (if you want). This is a case where a social worker meets with you and the child once every six months. Basically, the social worker is just there to assist you with getting medi-cal, educational assistance, etc. Also, you will qualify for cash funds to assist you with caring for the child - not based on your income. Your second choice is for if the mother is not cooperative. Call CPS to make a report about your concerns. They will investigate and see if they recommend you getting guardianship. They can provide you with a letter to the court to help you with a contested guardianship hearing (which still goes through Probate court). If they removed the child then the case will go through Dependency Court. The child can be placed with you as a relative placement, but you will basically be the foster mother and not have acutally custody or guardianship (custody will be with the state). In California, CPS is done by the different counties and not state wide. It's usually called Child Welfare Services. If you don't know the local number for your county you can call 1(800) 344- 6000 and they will either take your report or give you the specific number to call. It's impressive you're willing to step up and do something to helpy your niece. Good luck to you!!
  • Call CPS and describe problems. They may not be "abuse" and it's better to know before you invest a bunch of time. I did this and found that it's perfectly ok to scare the crap out of a 10 year old by telling them the world will end in 2012. Good luck.
  • call cps about this
  • I work in a free standing imaging center in Northern California. We charge $295 for a mammogram with a CAD (computer-aided detection) reading. This includes the radiologists reading. To locate a FDA certified, accredited mammography facility in your area, call the National Cancer Institute at 1-800-4-CANCER. If you do not have health insurance, you have a number of options: 1. Call your local chapter of the American Cancer Society (number in your phone book) or the national toll-free number, 1-800-ACS-2345. The ACS will be able to tell you about any low-cost or free mammography programs offering screening to women unable to pay for it themselves. 2. Call your State Department of Health (number in your phone book). Every state now has a Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program funded by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This program offers screening to qualifying women unable to pay for it themselves. 3. Call the YWCA's ENCOREplus Program for access to low-cost or free mammograms. To find which YWCA facilities offer this service and if you are eligible, call 1-800-95EPLUS or your local YWCA. 4. Call the National Cancer Institute at 1-800-4-CANCER for the names of FDA-certified, accredited mammography facilities in your area. If you explain your financial situation, some mammography facilities are willing to work out a lower fee or payment schedule that will make the test more affordable. Ask the facility if they are willing to discuss these options with you. October of each year is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and many mammography facilities offer special fees and extended hours during this month. If none of those programs can help, my best advice would be to look in your local yellow pages, and make calls for estimated costs at facilities in your area. Prices will vary depending on which state you are in....in fact, the prices can vary quite a bit between facilities in the same area. I work in a free standing imaging center, and we charge about half what the hospital (located in the same town!) charges. Look in the yellow pages under "x-ray" or "physicians - radiologist" and start calling facilities. If you call the imaging department of a hospital, make sure you get both the technical fee (for the cost of the procedure) and the professional fee (for the radiologist's reading). Most free standing imaging centers combine those costs into one fee. Other things to think about.....find out if the facility offers a cash discount for uninsured patients. Also, find out if they can make a payment plan for you, if you cannot come up with all of the money at the time of your procedure. We ask for 25% down at time of service, and then we do a payment plan, mapping out monthly payments for the balance. Sometimes the monthly payment is fairly low.....$50 even. A little bit of research can save you some money!
  • I am not exactly sure how much it would cost...I guess it would depend on the doctor. October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and many mammography facilities that would normally be full-price are offering free or low-cost exams for women on National Mammography Day which is on October 17. You can google FREE MAMMOGRAM IN (type your area) and it should direct you to places where she can get one.
  • A couple of call to the local health dept. and an internet search might be very helpful. In my area they offer $10 mammograms once a year. I'm sure many communities have similar programs.
  • 100% scam. There is no buyer. Notice how the scammer doesn't call what you are selling by name? He uses the generic word "item", that is because he sends the same stock copy/paste email to anyone selling everything that he can find and he has no idea what you are selling and doesn't care. There is only a scammer trying to steal your ipod. The scammer isn't interested in your identity or bank account only in convincing you to ship your possession to him without him sending you a penny. The next email will be from another of the scammer's fake names and free email addresses pretending to be "Paypal" saying "kindly send the tracking number and we will release the funds".

  • I'm sorry about your current situation. Perhaps you can find out if you qualify for food stamps aka SNAP (supplemental nutrition assistance program). Apparently, households cannot have more than $2,000 in "countable resources" (which includes cash, bank accounts and cars) to possibly qualify. This government site has more info re: SNAP: http://www.fns.usda.gov/snap/applicant_r...If you don't qualify for food stamps, perhaps you can go to the local food bank and show your pay stub (or whatever other evidence is needed) to get some free - or more affordable - food. For a rather *small* but supplemental income, some people are selling on ebay.com. As long as the item is legitimate, one may place the item on ebay for people to bid on it. Some vendors (sellers) will pay for shipping and others do not wish to do so. Those who are crafty may sell their handcrafted items on etsy (possibly for a supplemental income). If you do rent your room (I'm not sure of the regulations there), please at least do a criminal background check as no one really knows a person's character just by looking at them (and, unfortunately, a person may be a criminal but just not have been caught yet :) - There may be a local "One-Stop Career Center" (it's run by the "U.S. department of labor") which provide services free of charge and may include job training and workshops such as cover letter and resume writing (and just an fyi that one usually sends a cover letter with a resume as the cover letter briefly expands on the resume): http://www.careeronestop.org/
  • Most don't recycle, reduce pyrotechnics, etc. Feigning interest-level/concern for the inenvironment, the Film industry wishes to use offsets for their pollution-ridden industry practices. No amount of public service announcements or celebrities driving hybrid cars can mask the fact that movie and TV production is a gritty industrial operation, consuming enormous amounts of power to feed bright lights, run sophisticated cameras, and feed a cast of thousands. Studios’ backlots host cavernous soundstages that must be air-conditioned to counter the heat produced by decades-old lighting technology. Huge manufacturing facilities consume wood, steel, paint and plastic to build sets that are often torn down and simply tossed out after filming ends. Not to forget the cross-country or overseas transport of gargantuan sets and the action-packed pyrotechnics which are always the trademark of a long-running A-lister. The energy guzzling continues on the exhibition side, too, with multiplexes drawing millions of kilowatts to power old-school popcorn makers and clunky film projectors that cash-strapped theater owners are reluctant to replace. A two-year study released last year by the University of California, Los Angeles, concluded that transportation, special effects explosions, idling vehicles and diesel generators make the entertainment industry a major Southern California polluter, second only to the oil industry. A new study about pollution in Los Angeles is pointing a finger directly at — Hollywood. A report from the UCLA Institute of the Environment says the film and TV industry emits up to 140 tons of ozone and diesel particulate emissions each year from such things as trucks and generators, special effects explosions and the destruction of sets with dynamite. This makes Hollywood the second largest polluter in the region — trailing only the petroleum industry. In fact, the makers of the global-warming film "The Day After Tomorrow" belched out 10,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions during production. One cannot ignore the huge carbon impact these action-packed films with pyrotechnics on steroids have on our environment from just one block buster. The movie made $543 million worldwide. Producers contributed $200,000 dollars to plant trees and take other steps to offset the pollution they created. Also, one convenient yet controversial method is the purchase of carbon credits by studios and producers to offset the greenhouse gases from their production activity. The credits attempt to counter such pollution by investing in environmentally friendly projects such as more planting of trees or funding wind power, etc. Studios, and a growing number of other industries, calculate their emissions then write a check to one of several brokers who funnel the money to projects around the world. The goal is to become carbon neutral by funding activities that reduce an equal amount of emissions. This writer wonders if any major reductions, guidelines would be given to the industry also, not just as a recommendation to these major effluent contributors, as the purchase of credits sounds very much like an open season on anything goes as long as you can afford the payoff. This practice has come under fire by some who also agree that it is an easy way to avoid the hard work of directly reducing pollution. Others question whether carbon credit payments are actually going to projects that make that much of a difference. Regulating the path of where these monies actually end up without lining the pockets of bureaucracy would be an amazing feat. “If you’re going to drive around in a big ol’ Hummer and then buy carbon offsets to mitigate that, that’s like getting drunk on the weekends and throwing some money through the window of an AA meeting and thinking you’re doing something,” said Ed Begley Jr., who was a poster child for energy conservation long before Al Gore made it trendy. Ed Begley Jr. has a hilarious and informative show “Living with Ed” on HGTV. To read more of Ed who also has a great site with green tips go to LivingwithEd.net

  • they don't care for recycling... its all about the money making sure the movies looks good....
  • Why not make a movie about it
  • just add them yourself or tell someone in charge. if you dont want to tell anyone in charge just leave it like that.
  • idk who cares?
  • If you are from a non-visa-exempt country... you must apply for a temporary residency visa in order to visit Canada. This requires background, medical, and financial checks. You must also provide proof that you do not intend to remain in Canada past your visa period and that you will not attempt to attend school, work, or look for work while in the country. This typically requires proof of employment/school in your home country, close family ties, that you have sufficient funds to pay for your stay without working, that you have valid travel medical insurance, that you are maintaining a residency in your home country, etc. Citizenship and Immigration Canada will want proof of this prior to issuing a temporary residency visa. If you are from a visa-exempt country, you don't require a visa to enter Canada. However, all visits to Canada are at the sole discretion of Canadian Border Services Agency. Common-sense applies as to whether they are going to have reasons to think that you are going to violate your visa exemption status. CBSA doesn't have time to stop, question, and grill the millions upon millions of visitors to Canada -- especially at land crossings. They are only going to go through this process if something is unusual or doesn't make sense. If you a driving to Vancouver to for a week-end and you have a California driver's license. That's a long way to drive for two days? If you have obvious medical conditions. If you have work related materials on you. If you don't have a return plane ticket. If you don't know where you are going are uncertain who you are meeting, etc.? If you have personal items not typical of a visit -- household items. If you are bringing in large amounts of cash. If you recently applied for any type of work or study permit. If you have been crossing the border frequently. If you are traveling with children during school days. Anything unusual and CBSA begins asking more and more questions. If CBSA does have a concern about the purpose of your trip... yes... they'll start asking for proof of travel medical insurance, proof you are employed or attending school in your home country, proof you are maintaining a residence, bank statements showing you have money to pay for a trip, a return plane ticket, doctor's letters, etc. They can contact people you are visiting to ask questions, contact your employer to verify you work for them, etc. And they can deny entry of any non-citizen into Canada without reason. They can also ban you from entering the country for a year. However, 99% of visitors are asked simple questions ("What is the purpose of your visit?", "How long are you staying?", etc.) and allowed to enter. CBSA doesn't have time to ask detailed questions unless they have some reason to do so. Yes... people do lie to cross the border. In 2012, 54,240 people were denied entry into Canada. This includes those with criminal records, those attempting to work illegally, those with serious health issues, those with outstanding warrants, false papers, child trafficking/custody disputes, etc. Virtually all of them lied to CSBA officers.
  • It's like that getting into most countries, not just Canada. I have been thoroughly checked out twice while trying to enter the US, for no apparent reason. Took an hour or so to get cleared to enter the US. They just didn't really believe that all I was going to the US for was a few days of camping and some shopping. I had all the ties to Canada anyone could ask for, short of having children I'd left at home. House, job, pets, etc. Maybe I should have told them that anyone with my medical history would have to have holes in their head to want to move to the US, since medical coverage, if it could be obtained at all, would cost many hundreds of dollars a month. Somehow, I didn't think that was the right thing to say while seeking permission to enter the US for a holiday.
  • There is no need to convince anyone of anything. There is a need to have a job, a home, financial assets and/or family back home such that the immigration officer has no concerns that you are attempting to illegally obtain admission into Canada. If you have those in place already you will have little to no problems. If you do not have such ties to your home country then you can expect to be questioned and scrutinized prior to being allowed to enter Canada.
  • You need to have a home address and not be living out of a dumpster. you need to have a job or go to school - something that indicates you have a life to go back to.- Genearlly the border people can ask you what your home address is, why you are coming to Canada, how long you are staying, what you are going to do while you're here, where you were born, if you have family in Canada. Standard stuff - just answer honestly and do not bring guns or drugs of any kind with you. (or meat products - cooked or raw)
  • Where did you hear that one? All you have to 'convince' a CBSA officer of is that you're not trying to do anything illegal in Canada. Yes they want to know about where you live and when you'll be going home, but that's normal when entering any country. As long as you're not coming to work or live here illegally, as long as you're not on the run from the law and as long as you're not planning on doing anything illegal during your visit, you have nothing to worry about. Around 30 million people visit Canada every year, and most of them have no problem at all getting in.
  • No need to explain. The Border Guard will decide if YOU can pass and Enter Canada. That which you have read are suggestions to use for the Border Guard. The border Guard does not have to let you pass. You have to give him a reason that he should. BAD ATTITUDE will stop you every time.
  • Im In 8th Grade And Have Realized That I NEED To start at my career NOW to realistically Ensure my chances of getting into a university college. i wanna be a lawyer (prosecution) (as a christian i dont wanna defend criminals haha) and i am in a high level college prep class (avid) right now. in high school i wanna increasingly gear my classes towards law and political science. what are good classes to take? my teacher recommended sticking with avid throughout high school, and doing math every year (he states law colleges look at that as logical thinking) and i am pretty sure debate team is a must to ensure getting into law school at a UC (california)
  • Choosing a career is one of life's most important and difficult decisions. But knowing what your expectations are, and then comparing them to the realities will help you make educated decisions. There are more attorneys than there are legal employment positions. AND the legal profession is dramatically changing: it is in absolute CRISIS! And, every year, more and more people graduate from law school, but there are fewer and fewer jobs. Even the largest and most reputable law firms are experiencing unprecedented cutbacks. I don't expect the situation to improve in the coming years..... http://abovethelaw.com/2010/01/this-week...Be aware of what you are proposing on getting yourself into. Please do more research first. Reminder: WE ARE STILL IN A WORLD-WIDE RECESSION. Obviously, economic conditions affect the number of jobs available. Consider career paths that have available JOBS.<< Even in a Recovery, there are some jobs that just won't return - the field of Law won't make a comeback. Too many things have changed in this vocational field. Now... the law schools know this, but they won't tell you the truth >that the job market/economy is just SATURATED with way too many Legal Professionals. Instead the schools will feed you a fairytale and will LIE to you. The root of the problem is we already have too many law schools. We are STILL in a Recession, and the schools are fighting for their own survival - they will tell students anything to get to the students' money. (Which is why they won't tell you the truth about the job market for the field of Law.) And these schools continue to recruit and churn out even more graduates.............Remember>>> law schools are BUSINESSES - their TOP concern is making money for themselves. Law schools are cash cows. >>>>>THE #1 MOST IMPORTANT THING (and I can't stress this enough>>>): You ESPECIALLY have to beware of the BOGUS, INFLATED law school salary/job stats given out by >law schools< (AND by the U.S. Bureau of Labor)!!***<<<<< If you don't believe me, then: **Check out these websites: http://subprimejd.blogspot.comhttp://finance.yahoo.com/college-educati...http://lawandletters.blogspot.com/2007/11/why-you-shouldnt-go-to-law-school.html http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/career-transitions/201009/considering-law-school-do-the-math http://www.abanet.org/lsd/legaled/value.pdf http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/career-transitions/201001/law-degree-and-nowhere-go http://lawshucks.com http://lawschoolscam.blogspot.com http://thirdtierreality.blogspot.com/ (A link to a website does not constitute endorsement.) **do a SEARCH here on Yahoo Answers to see what other posters are saying about the current status of the field of Law.

  • Law schools don't even look at anything you do in high school. So don't worry about it, just focus on going to a decent college after graduation with minimal debt (for your 4 year Bachelors degree - law school comes after that). Debate team doesn't matter. Your current classes won't matter. All that matters is your GPA/LSAT in college. And if you actually stick with law school you probably won't do criminal law anyways. It's a small part of law, and typically the lower-tier of law.
  • I'm selling my Xbox 360 on Craigslist for $200. A "potential buyer" offered an extra $100 plus shipping which sounds fishy. They said they were out of town and wanted to get their son a birthday present. I asked where I would be shipping to and they said the University of Lagos, Nigeria, which sounds even more sketchy. They want to pay via PayPal. The area code from their number is from New York. I live in California. Sounds like a scam, but is there anyway for them to rip me off through PayPal?
  • 100% scam. There is no buyer. There is only a scammer trying to steal your possession, your electronic item, name brand clothing or jewelry. The scammer isn't interested in your identity or bank account only in convincing you to ship your possession to him without him sending you a penny. He will continue to send urgent and harassing emails demanding that you send the item asap. Ignore this fake buyer. The next email will be from another of the scammer's fake names and free email addresses pretending to be "Paypal" saying "kindly send the tracking number and we will release the funds". Paypal does NOT send such emails, ever. Paypal does NOT have escrow or money holding services like that scammer describes. Paypal does NOT demand you send a tracking number before money is sent. EVER. No exceptions. Now that you have responded to a scammer, you are on his 'potential sucker' list, he will try again to separate you from your cash. He will send you more emails from his other free email addresses using another of his fake names with all kinds of stories of being the perfect buyer, great jobs, lottery winnings, millions in the bank and desperate, lonely, sexy singles. He will sell your email address to all his scamming buddies who will also send you dozens of fake emails all with the exact same goal, you sending them your cash via Western Union or moneygram. You could post up the email address and the emails themselves that the scammer is using, it will help make your post more googlable for other suspicious potential victims to find when looking for information. Do you know how to check the header of a received email? If not, you could google for information. Being able to read the header to determine the geographic location an email originated from will help you weed out the most obvious scams and scammers. Then delete and block that scammer. Don't bother to tell him that you know he is a scammer, it isn't worth your effort. He has one job in life, convincing victims to send him their hard-earned cash. Whenever suspicious or just plain curious, google everything, website addresses, names used, companies mentioned, phone numbers given, all email addresses, even sentences from the emails as you might be unpleasantly surprised at what you find already posted online. You can also post/ask here and every scam-warner-anti-fraud-busting site you can find before taking a chance and losing money to a scammer. If you google "cragislist buyer scam", "fake paypal email scam", "ebay buyer paypal scam" or something similar you will find hundreds of posts from victims and near victims of this type of scam. Check out the one and only official paypal website, read up on what paypal does and how it really works.

  • I was sent a text from someone saying they are buying my laptop for "a friend abroad" plus they were gonna throw in an extra 100 for shipping. I sent my paypal account name then realized, wait this isn't right. So i got on Google and sure enough, total scam. So i immediately went and changed all my paypal info. Never trust anyone over Craigslist with paypal, lesson learned. In-person exchange only. No exceptions.
  • There are many variations of the Craigslist/Paypal scam which is why Craigslist’s scam warnings page specifically tells users to NEVER give out Paypal details,, ONLY deal with people who can meet you in person and accept cash only. Not to mention Paypal specifically prohibits ALL transactions with Nigeria. 1 - this article explains the most common version which uses a spoofed email that only looks like it's from Paypal http://consumerist.com/2008/10/30/how-a-...2 - a version of #1 but the fake Paypal email will be for MORE than you asked for and you will be asked to wire the balance to the "shipper" or some other person through Western Union or Moneygram 3 – you get a spoofed Paypal email asking you to click a link to verify/accept the transaction, and that link leads you to a phishing site that looks exactly like Paypal’s home page but by logging in, you just gave the scammers your account details so they can hack your account and use it to pay for items online 4 - they pay with a hacked Paypal account hoping you ship the item or they or their “mover” or “shipper” pick up the item before the real account holder discovers the theft, reports it to Paypal and Paypal withdraws the money from your account 5- Paypal ONLY protects you if YOU arrange the shipping to the buyer's verified address. Scammers know this but hope you don't. So they pay with their account then either send a "shipper" (scammer using another fake name) to pick up the item or they have you send to a father/son/friend/etc overseas or in another state Then once they have the item or you have sent it, they file a dispute with Paypal claiming their email and Paypal accounts have been hacked and there is an unauthorised transaction. Paypal contacts you asking for proof of delivery to the buyer's verified address. You won't have this as the scammer either picked up from you or shipped to an unverfied address, and Paypal refunds the money and the scammer keeps your item and resells it for cash And once the scammers have your Paypal account details they will use password hacking software to hack your account to “pay” their next victim Craigslist is ONLY for face to face CASH transactions of you are always being scammed - NO exceptions. The scammers love to target games consoles, laptops and phones especially
  • I was trying to sell a piece of farm equipment on craigslist. Within the first hour the ad was listed I received a text from a potential buyer. The first red flag was when the text said do not respond back to this number because of the nature of their work. They wanted to use paypal for the transaction. We exchanged e-mails and I was still very leary. I m new to selling things online but I do know how farm equipment transactions usually go. To make a long story short they supposedly sent money to my paypal account with extra money for me to pay the shipper via moneygram. I knew then for sure it was a scam and e-mail from paypal was also a fake. The money never was never sent. It was supposed to be in holding account until I gave them proof I had wired money to shipper. Paypay does not work that way. I d like to find out who is behind this scam and beat the hell out of them.
  • I just posted my couch on craigslist for sale. Immediately got a text and 2 emails from three separate people saying they wanted to purchase the couch. After sending them the specifics on the couch they said they liked the price and the pictures looked good. They said they would send funs through PayPal and would have a shipping agent pick them up. I was unaware to this scam but luckily I looked this up online before I got screwed. The big tip that gave it away was this guy was willing to spend $590 on a $1400 couch. That was when the red lights came on and I googled "craiglist PayPal Scam". Hope this helps someone someday like it helped me.
  • Scam. No one offers more money and the shipping of the item to Nigeria is another scam. I'm also not sure how they scam you through Paypal but I'm sure they have found a way.
  • This really does sound like a scam, considering they can get a new one from Amazon for less then $300.00. If they pay you through PayPal you will get the money in your account right away and they can't take it back. I would make sure you receive the money before you ship them your Xbox.
  • My daughter was selling iphone. Buyer stated he needed it shipped to Nigeria asap to son to so he would have it for his birthday. Buyer offered and extra 100 for shipping and sent money via paypal. By then I realized it was a scam and told her not to claim the money and tell buyer she is not comfortable with this transaction to Nigeria and to retract his funds. First he said he couldn't retract the payment because it was a business account so send it to him in Maryland. She said stop contacting me and retract your payment. Then he told her he was going to press charges. I told her to block his number and email paypal a brief explanation and let them know you did not claim the funds. I hate crooks. I forgot he had the name Timothy something.... way to American of a name to be Nigerian.
  • Heres what I have so far. Please give pros, cons,and examples please. Laizze Faire PRO : Beneficial to entrepenurial spirit due to lack of taxes, rules, regulations. Lots of incentive for profit, and in theory the invisible hand benefits all of society. CON : Allows for monopolies, which doesn't benefit society. CON : Bad working conditions, wages, etc... EXAMPLES: ?? Demand Side PRO: Social services that benefit general population like health care, pensions, unemplyment etc.. CON: Dampens entrepenurial spirit, cuz of high taxes, this causing them to increase cost of goods, lower wages, less benefits to emplyees. CON: Since people also pay high taxes, they have less money to spend on goods, and extreme cases may cause recession. Examples: ?? Supply Side (reagonomics) PRO: Laws exist to prevent monopolies, ensure minimum wage, working conditions ec.. PRO: Low business taxes aid entrepenurial spirit. Also allow for hire of more employees,etc CONS: ?? Examples: ??
  • First, you are making a list but I see no indication that you really understand what is going on--or you could provide your own list of pro's, con's and examples. So let's give you an economics degree: Laissez-faire comes from the French, and means "Let it be". In economics this is interpreted as "keep the government out of business, and business will take care of itself." Sometimes that works; and sometimes it does not. An example of where it might not work is when a business grows so big, that it has the ability to stifle competition. AT&T was once the only phone company in the US. Because of that, we had great universal service; but no cell phones. When AT&T was "broken up" we suddenly got more options. Should the government have let AT&T continue to run what amounted to a monopoly? Well, whether the government should have or not is now irrelevant--the US didn't. AT&T was broken up, and we now have new telephone features, cell phones, cordless phones, and many other innovations that the single phone company (AT&T) was unwilling to provide. (They weren't necessary--the investment AT&T had was in those wires. Why would they want to give up that investment?) Another really big con is that laizze-faire, by its very nature, means businesses have the "right" even the obligation, to fail (or die, or cease operating). This can cause a terrible human toll. It's like the lions eating the zebra's on the savannah: The eco-system survives; The lions survive, heck, even the zebra species survives. But to that one zebra being eaten, it doesn't feel so great. The human toll of having a business you worked for the last 30 years, which was holding your pension, suddenly close its doors, means that maybe you die. As long as it isn't YOUR company that dies, Laissez-faire isn't too bad. Demand side economics implies, "If customers want it, business will provide it." So, tomorrow I get hungry. Someone hands me a potato. Although that should solve the problem, what happens if I want ice cream? Oh, you didn't say you "were hungry for ice cream." Let me build a new factory, and provide you the thing you just figured out you really wanted. Well, a few years later, ice cream is available. Too late to satisfy the mood. But that's okay, I ate potatoes while I was waiting for the factory to be built. The premise is that the people know what they want. The reality is, I didn't know I wanted a cell phone until I found out how useful they were. No one in 1890 was clamouring for a cell phone. No one was in 1950 either. But after they were invented in 1990, they started catching on. Con: There is little invention, creativity, or incentive to invent. People think they are happy, because everything they "demand" is provided. Con: But there is no real growth--no exploration. People as a whole aren't creative; Individuals are. Demand side ignores the individual, and caters to the masses. Supply Side economics is "If you build it, they will come." Whatever I make, I'll find a way to make you want it. "Oh, you've never heard of a micro computer. Well, just let me show you what can be done with one!" In 1975 the Apollo program came to an abrupt end. We'd been to the moon. There was no "demand" for the space program. So, NASA fired over 250 engineers working in and around the Palo Alto, California. They had been working to make the space capsules lighter, to reduce the fuel. To do that, they began putting "vacuum tubes" onto thin wafers of silicon. Several of those engineers suddenly found themselves with cash (they were given a severence check) and they had ideas. They started making things. Some made calculators (HP, Texas Instruments); one made video games (Atari); a few made chips (Intel, American Micro Devices.) Before that time, nobody wanted to play a game of 'pong'. We didn't know what it was. But once Noland Bushnell started showing it off in a few local bars, (he provided the supply) they started catching on. What would have happened if he had waited until someone said, "Hey, would you make me a game where I can hit a moving object with out getting out of my chair?" We'd still be out playing tennis with a racket. There is a con to that thinking though. Some of the things people come up with will be pretty stupid! Money is wasted building entire factories for frivolous stuff no one needs. Somewhere (hopefully in China) is some guy who works 8-hours a day making plastic "chattering teeth." What a waste of plant capacity! That wouldn't happen if the government could tell us what things "should" be made, and what things are just plain stupid. Get it, now? If you really understand this, then you can see the obvious pro's, con's and examples. But you need to really understand the terms first.
  • Do you really understand supply side economics? It is not simply about reducing taxes on business owners; it focuses on both policies that help raise capital for new and expanding businesses and on the costs of production. The "conventional wisdom" is not always correct. So you would rather government go to all of the trouble and expense and administrative cost to tax a business and then spend money with businesses instead of just letting businesses keep their own hard-earned money to begin with? That doesn't make much sense, either.
  • my fiance has a 4 year old son, when the baby was 3 months old the mama took off for almost 2 years to california because her and my fiance ended their relationship. so he didnt see his son again till he was about 2 and a half years old, he has had a DNA test to prove its his and signed the birth certificate, she filled for child support 2 years ago and he gladly paid what was ordered but wanted visitation in return, she didnt want that so she dropped the child support and he stopped paying, well last june 2008 she filled again and he has been baying now for over a year and doesnt get visitation, we can go to the moms parents house ( where the child mainly lives) and see him but they make rude remarks about when my fiance and their daughter was together to try and make us mad so we will leave so we never go over there and they wont let the son go anywhere with my fiance. we want visitation like every other weekend and every other holiday and 2 weeks out of the summer which is pretty standard i believe, he is ordered by the state to pay the child support so can we go thru DHR to seek visitation? we are low on cash and need to try and get this done the free way or at least the cheapest. also we are from georgia, thats where the DHR in charge of his case is located, and the child lives in ga but in november of 2008 we moved to alabama. dont know if any of that matters but please give me some good advice because my fiance really wants to get to know his son who is now 4 and has hardly seen his whole life and i want to be a part of it to because i will be step mom in 2 months when we are married. please help!
  • There is a little organization called "Father's Rights" look in your local phone directory under Government or Public Service index. They are advocates for father's right also can assist in helping you find low to no cost legal help. You can get a parenting plan outlining visitation schedules. if you get one in place with the courts then if the other parent interferes such as always making plan on your visitation time or failing to comply then the local authorities can step in and even arrest them. If the child seem to be residing more with the grandparents then the mother you might consider filing for custody of the child, A natural parents always have precedent's over grandparents unless there has been proof of abuse between or on the part of a parents. You might want to get ahold of the prosecuting attorney or district attorney for help in filing these papers. Remember a legal court order holds alot of credibility also check to see if the mother has even filed and has been giving a custody order by the court because just because you have a child doesn't mean you have a custody of that child unless you have actually filed for an order of custody that a judges signed and grants you custody then believe it or not neither parent does not hold custody on that child. Check out you local and state child custody laws you will be really surprised. what people think there right legally are; REALLY AREN"T !
  • If the daddy isn't worth even although, them this needs to be further to the attention of the courtroom that the daddy is enticing in a existence form and practices that are risky to the baby. If that's got here across to be the case and genuine, then there is the possibility for the two supervised visits or entire denial of visitation rights until the concern is resolved. Does this (^^) help??
