Can Conn's appliance store sue me over a defective telivision set that is now in their possession?
I purchased a Toshiba 42 inch television from Conn's in Houston Texas in February 2009. The Television just stopped working in May 2011. The store stated my "2 year warranty just ran out a few months earlier and I would have to pay $108.00 to have one of their techs look at it plus parts and labor to have it repaired. My other option was to get approved for another tv and pay for both of them if I couldn't afford to get the 1st one repaired.
After researching the issue, it was going to cost over 300.00 just for the part, a Power Source. I could not afford the repairs and did voluntary return to the store. Now they are continuously harassing me for the balance $824.00. I sent a certified letter detailing the issue to Corporate office in Beaumont Tx but got no response. A week and 1/2 later got a "telegram" from Dallas Tx. collections threatening other action if I do not agree to a payment plan. Can they sue for a tv they have in their possession.
