Re: [EVDL] problems Electro Automotive (OT but may help someone else avoid EA)

If it has come to that then sue them in your local court. It won't be small
claims court I wouldn't think as you must be out more than the cap. You can
sue in your local court even if a business is not local. It's their problem
to send a representative on their behalf. Hopefully it does not come to
this.

I doubt that ElCon has anything to do with what is going on. I've dealt with
the people at Zivan USA and they are very prompt.

Re: [EVDL] problems Electro Automotive (OT but may help someone else avoid EA)

Also, as a somewhat related note:

Electro Automotive has an F rating (the worst rating they give out) at the
Better Business Bureau. It bears consideration that one should be very
careful who they do business with. BBB is one place you can check to see how
a business is doing. It's also good to ask on a list like this if you aren't
sure about a business. But, that's water over the bridge for you.

Best of luck to you.

Re: [EVDL] problems Electro Automotive (OT but may help someone else avoid EA)

Buddy, Collin has been been giving you some very reasonable suggestions.
Remember, most attnys give you a short interview and will tell you based
upon their legal experience what course of action will be more likely
successful. I you sue, and have enough evidence you will win the monetary
loss reimbursed, and they usually award the winner court costs and
reasonable legal fees, and ten times the original loss as punitive damages
also but particulars vary by state, Part of the hassle is the court gives
you a "Judgment." Then you have to collect, and that can be a whole new
problem. Best wishes go with you.

numbers can be fun and good mnemonics aid memory.)
