For a small fee, I can drive over there and assault the man then get his wallet and get the amount he owes you.

The circumstances under which you can place a property lein would be:
(1) He owes you money.
(2) You got a judgment in court saying that you win, he owes you money.
(3) He doesn't pay you.
(4) He has property that a lein can be placed on.
(5) You follow your local laws in the process of placing a lein. This might be best handled by hiring a company to investigate his assets for you. Alternatively, they can seize assets in his bank accounts, garnish employer wages (if any), etc. Also, losing a judgment like that puts a black mark on his credit report as well. Although I'd bet he already has bad credit and doesn't care.

Once again, your attorney general isn't actually going to do anything for you. They'll send you a thank you letter. In the event that this guy was defrauding dozens or more people out of their life savings, they'd probably charge him with a crime. Otherwise, they'll just thank you for your complaint. You did the right thing to report it to the A.G., but your A.G. really *REALLY* isn't going to do anything.

Most of the time, people will try to put distance between themselves, and their businesses they own legally (atleast if they did it right). Selling cars can involved a lot of risk/liability so he should've done this.

Put the lien on his car lot.

Define irony....

FWIW, his company is technically a limited liability company (Bernardo Motors, LLC). So I suppose he did take some precautions. I'm not completely familiar w/ LLCs, but regardless, he still owes me.

Thanks for the suggestions everyone! I will have some more fun with this guy. Maybe I can go on the news again after I get a judgement in my favor from the court. I'll send him that video as well.

I would make an example of this scumbag. There is no way this twit can sue you. He is scared and backed into the corner, i highly doubt the DA or AG or what ever buys from a *$%T hole like that.



KEEEEELLLL HIM!

I mean, just think about it. What, exactly, could he sue you for? I mean, anybody can sue anybody for anything, but really, what would he sue you for?

In almost every state, in civil cases (not small-claims), a losing party in a lawsuit pays the winning party'* legal expenses. That makes it a very VERY stupid thing to file a frivolous lawsuit, or to sue someone "without regard to what it costs" one. I mean, if he insists on suing you (which he won't), -let him. And go hire the most expensive lawyer in your area, which will have two benefits: (1) You'll have a great lawyer. (2) This guy will pay EVEN More when he loses.

But really, what could he possibly sue you for? You don't owe HIM money, it'* the other way `round. YOU on the other hand, have a slam-dunk case in small claims court. Go for it!
