Making a court claim

OK, this isn't strictly RIB related, but I'm looking at options for getting back the $700 that I paid to the Yachtflag Co. The full tale of woe is here.

If it was a UK company I could take court action to get this money back - it's really simple and can all be done on-line. If PayPal didn't have a slightly useless 45 day limit on claims, I could get the money back through them. As it is, I'm a bit stuck.

Anyone know if how I could start proceedings against this company? Obviously for this amount of money it's not going to involve lawyers' fees!

Not sure of the state of "PC"alifornia but in New(we have a hidden tax just for you) Hampshire we have small claims court and one can do all their own paper work with a fee paid to the court. Then it is on the crook oh i mean the persons or company to prove they do not owe it and alot of the time they will pay before court good luck

How did you fund the paypal payment? If it was by credit card you should be able to get the credit card company to do a chargeback on paypal, leaving paypal to try and scrape it back from Mr Yachtflag!
