I received a Civil Summons/Complaint from Citibank NA attorney for a past debt that I owe. The only things they have attached is an Exhibit A showing a billing statement from May of this year and then filing costs for the complaint. There is no date for a hearing or anything it just states that I need to respond within 20 days of receipt of the Summons or judgement by default may be taken against me for the relief demanded in the attached complaint plus costs. I'm not sure what to do or who to contact about this. Do I need to contact Citibank or the Attorney for Citibank that is listed? I'm also confused as to why there is no court date listed on any of these documents. Can anyone help me?

Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
