How Do I Prove a Receipt is Inflated and Fraudulent?
Business records are able to be obtained through the discovery stage of a lawsuit through a request for production, or may be asked for in a subpoena duces tecum issued by an attorney. In order to prove inflated charges, some of the evidence that may be used include pictures of the work performed along with estimates from those in the same field. The more estimates used for comparison the better. It will be a matter of subjective determination for the court, based on all the facts and documents involved. The is no statute specifying what needs to be on the receipt, but the more unprofessional it looks, the more it will weigh on credibility in the court’s determination.
