Q. i have sold my cooperation to someone recently, and i have some people that i had money disputes with in that business
A: Note: I am not your lawyer and this is not legal advice. Additional information is needed regarding the natures of the sale of the corporation and the money disputes. For example, generally, a sale of a corporation can be structured for the transfer of the corporate shares, or for sale and purchase of the assets only. Furthermore, transaction documents might provide for the seller to be responsible for some period of time for liabilities (often described as indemnification). Also, the nature of the disputes can determine whether there is personal liability against you. Note that a person can always be sued, but may have defenses such as not being a proper party to the law suit. Try consulting with an attorney to determine how the sale was structured, and to analyze the potential liability claims. ... Read More
Q. How can I get the $13k I have in a closed account that the bank refuses to send to me. Its been over a year.
A: Your issue may require a review of the terms and conditions that you agreed to when opening the account.

However, I would also recommend that you conduct a name search of the New York State Comptroller's Office of Unclaimed Funds. https://www.osc.ny.gov/unclaimed-funds. New York State’s Abandoned Property Law requires certain entities such as banks to report and to transfer abandoned money or securities to the New York State Comptroller’s Office of Unclaimed Funds, which holds the funds until claimed. The funds derive from inactive bank accounts, uncollected insurance policies or refunds, and more. If you find your name, you can make a claim for the return of the funds.
