On Aug. 24, 2011 I received a Judgement from the Lamar County Cort for Frederic Hanna and assoc. for a past due credit card bill that I can not pay. On Aug. 26, 2013 I received a notice again from Hanna and Assoc. asking for the money. I have no checking acct. and all I have is a savings acct of $400.00. I have not had any activity on this acct since 2006. Am I coming up on the statue of limitations? Or should I contact them and see if they will settle for the $400.00? They want $3533.38. I have not worked since 2006 and I have no income what so ever.
What should I do?
By signing up a debt counseling session, your provided details (Name, Email ID and Phone No.) will be forwarded to the company advertising on the DebtCC. However, you have no obligation to use their services.
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.
