Bbnolermef : I would like to be able to send multimedia messages, such as pictures, but my LG Cookie Fresh will not let me! I am a part of Vodafone Ireland. I went on to vodafone.ie/mms to see if i could send them off the web, but I could not! Any ideas why I'm not able to send them? I went through all the guidelines to setting it up but it is still not working?? How I could fix this problem?

Thanks! :) x

EffodoGob : I messed up big time by failing to deliver on a product and the client is pissed (understandably). There was a problem with the business partner I was working with and they left me hanging out to dry and therefore the client. Yet, I'm stuck with the bill.

I promised to pay them back what they paid me and gave them what I did for free...I also took evidence of my giving them back their money. Can they sue for more?

Note: The contract I had them sign didn't even have a clause for if I failed to deliver. Yet, I'm still giving them their money back because I feel like a piece of sh*t.
@Mr. Placid

Even if I already gave them their money back (as I mentioned above)? I would still have to pay the difference. If they bought something at a different price?
@barruk...

See I got screwed over myself and I've been working with them to work with what they have. So that they don't get nothing. How could I be held accountable if they went to someone else and they did the job but the clients paid more? Especially when I gave them their money back?

LasloDemsi : If they can prove that they lost money because of your failure they can try to sue you for it in small claims court. But they will have to prove their loss and they probably just want to get what they need and move on.

Why not find another vendor and supply what you said you would. That way, the next time this customer needed your service, they would remember how you went out of your way to make sure you delivered what you promised.

Note: Revise your contract asap to cover yourself in every situation. Contact an attorney for specific clauses. Giving the money back is the right thing to do when it is your fault (yes, you choosing the wrong vendor and not finding another when you realized they weren't going to deliver does make you at fault-sorry).

Sepecoagree : Your story is woefully deficient of facts. Generally speaking, if you contract to sell products (let's say for example 200 chairs for $10 each) and you fail to deliver those products, then buyer's remedy is to buy the identical product at market price, then sue you for the price difference. So, if the buyer had to buy those 200 chairs for $12 each, then you owe buyer $400. And of course the buyer gets the full deposit back as well, duh. There are lots of other possible remedies the buyer may have against you depending on the facts and circumstances.

immekGive : They can try to sue you for up to 3 times the amount of damages caused, however since you acted in good faith, refunded the entire amount they paid and did not charge them for the work you did do, a judge will more then likely not rule above the paid amount.

Yes they could try to go after you if they went to someone else who charged them more to complete the work but again you have acted in good faith and have proof of it.

Yes they, your former customers, have been inconvenienced but if they turn to the courts to get more money then they deserve out of you, they will be taking a gamble and may end up with paying court fees instead.

If there was a contract with your signature on it saying you would do the work or in some states a verbal contract, yes they can try to sue you for up to 3 times the damages. If they try to sue they would have to prove there was malicious intent to NOT comply with the contract. If they go with a different contractor to complete the work they can sue you for up to 3 times the difference between what you charged and refunded and what it cost them to have someone else finish the job.

For example say you charged $1500.00 but could not finish the job and you refunded them the $1500.00. They got someone else to finish the job but were charged $2500.00 by that contractor. Your former client could try and sue you for the difference of the extra $1000.00 they are out of by getting someone else to complete the job. On top of that they could try to sue for 3 times that amount and base it on the aggrevation of having to spend the time to find someone else to complete the job, so based on the example, they could sue for $3000.00.


Look up the website http://www.hcs.harvard.edu/~scas/wp/wordpress/?page_id=24

But remember they have to prove you misguided them, as long as you have proof that you tried to make it right to the best of your abilities the 3 times the damage clause may not apply. I would suggest if you do get sued by this client due to your business partner then you can recoup the monatary damages from your business partner by in turn suing your former business partner. Here you can in turn sue for 3 times the amount you were sued for, yes it is a vicious, vicious cirlce.

Your best bet if you can afford it, get a lawyer.

Vidsgaga : ......... or is it to "GET EVEN?

The prosecutor was so bad, the attorneys are clamoring for her to be disbarred! I agree! Also, the FBI investigation revealed no civil rights violations towards Martin. AND.. most of all... WHY is the government getting involved in a case which involves a single individual who has been found NOT GUILTY? Just more BS!!

igoroldtemkin : Correction: Holder is reviewing the case to determine whether or not civil rights have been violated. If no violation is found, that's the end of the story. So, don't jump ahead.
