DEAR LEGAL WIZ,
On a recent visit to the Sutton Street court, where I saw a neatly dressed man who told me that I didnt need to go inside to get my claim done. I didnt have any time, so I gave him $15,000.00. He was so persistent and spoke like he had sense. His head is bald and hes always in a tie, whenever I go there. Its been four weeks and I cant get my summons nor my money. The police say they cannot do anything, because its a civil matter. I spoke to someone who told me to sue him. The Court date however is too far away. What else can I do?
The best suggestion is to bring the claim against him to the Judge, and you have to make that claim at the Court office. One other thing that you needed to do is to visit the police and ask them to assist. They should have given you a receipt. You can see police officers at the Court house.
