Dear Consumer Ed: I recently applied to refinance my house, and now I am getting calls from all types of lenders about refinancing. I’m on the “Do Not Call” List, so I don’t think they should be calling. What can I do?
Dear Consumer Ed: Does a manufacturer buyback car have a branded title for the life of the vehicle? I’m considering purchasing a 2019 car that was bought back by the manufacturer and resold with a warranty. The warranty has now expired, and the car is for resale at a used car lot. Am I crazy to consider buying this car?
Dear Consumer Ed: I am not happy with my current doctor and want to look for a new doctor/practice. I called my current doctor’s office and requested a copy of my records, but they told they could not send them to me, that they could only send them to another doctor. Aren’t I entitled to a copy of my own medical records?
Dear Consumer Ed: I had a tankless water heater installed two days ago. I signed and paid for the work, but later discovered that I paid $4,500 for a unit that retails for around $2,000. Is there a grace period that allows me to return the unit for a refund?
