Where do I check to see if I'm being sued?

member profile picture

Ok, got a letter from an attorney near where I live saying that Citi Card was suing me, and that they could help. The thing is I never knew Citi Card was suing. Is there somewhere to check?




Well, I can't offer any definite information and can't tell you where to check, but if it were me---I would call whatever number is listed with this attorney and ask them for information (to start with). It seems kind of strange that the attorney's office offers help.

When one of my credit cards was sent to an outside collection agency, the bills came from a "law office" and it freaked me out at first. I found out that it was a law office, but the kind that work with collection cases. I was not sued, but made payment arrangements each month. This could be what your "attorney's office" is.

Go to your county civil court website, there should be something listed there is there is a case pending on you. :)

I re-looked at the letter from the attorney's office,and there is actually a case number in it. How nice, we haven't even been served yet. I guess I'll need to call tomorrow to see what is going on.

Ok, looks like a lawsuit was filed. When I review the Wisconsin site, it has a future court activity date of 10/29/2008? An attorney's office is collecting for Citibank(they are a debt collector). Is this a scare tactic to work with the debt collector?

Well that sure is interesting---you have a court date scheduled and you haven't even been served papers? You definitely need to check into this further. I guess it could be a "scare tactic", but I don't know. As I mentioned above, with my account that was with a "law office" it definitely scared me until I found out what was what.

Head down to the courthouse and request a copy of the file. Forewarned is fore armed.
