So I was served papers for a CC debt from a few yrs ago. I honestly forgot to go to the court appearances 2x's to "Prove up". Anyway made it the 3rd time. I was called to up to the Judge. He says your being sued from midland funding for 1900. I say, OK and ?????
He was very nice but I am like so what do you want ? (not in those words) He asks me do you have an answer ? I was like a answer to what ? What am I supposed to say ? So then the bailiff ran up with a paper saying Judge he needs to fill out an answer and turn it in. I read it am like WTH does this mean. He said go fill it out and answer it. They are suing you for 1900. Go answer it and we (the court I assume) can get that lowered.
So my question is I go back in Jan for another hearing. What is going to happen ? Any insight of what I am to 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.
