Was just served a summons from Frederick Hanna on behalf of Midland Credit for $5024.76. I sent DV back in Nov. and only received a letter stating OC was HSBC, opened in 2004 and last payment July 2010. The summons I received today includes copies of Assignment and Bill of Sales from HSBC to The Bureaus and then from The Bureaus to Midland. They don't specifically show that my account was part of the bundle sold though. The case is filed in Ga. Magistrate Court so it is my understanding that I can't file for Discovery. Wondering if I could file Motion to Compel Arbitration? Account was opened in 2004. Or would I be better off to attempt settlement?

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.
