Can you sue someone for not sending you what you buy?
Question Details: Through Instagram, I bough a pair of AirPods off of a reseller who was selling AirPods for $100. I went ahead and bought them from him. I have a picture of our conversations through text and I also have a screen shot confirming everything called a safety post. However, he recently deleted his account or deactivated it and I can not reach him anymore. What should I do?
You can sue him for one or more of breach of contract (violating the agreement under which you agreed to pay him $100 and he agreed to sell you the AirPods), fraud (lying about what he could or wold do, and/or theft by deception (stealing from you by tricking you). But to sue him:
1) You need his physical address to "serve" the legal papers on him; you can't sue without a physical address.
2) Unless he is located in your country so you can use small claims court, it would not be worth it--to sue him elsewhere, you'd have to sue in "regular" county court, where the cost, complexity, and time exceeds what you'd be suing for. Even in small claims court, it is very marginal, at best, to sue for $100. There is no practical or cost effective way to sue for such a small amount.
