I am getting a call from North Eastern saying they are representing CashNet USA. They said they are taking me to court for $997.43 because of what they consider bad checks. I closed out my account 3 years ago because they had been paid over and over again. Can they sue me and garnish my checking account now? They are also saying they are going to press charges against me as a misdemeaner with Allegheny Court System. First of all this is a collection agency, so I know they can not sue me. I logged into Cashnetusa. It states my loan was sold to another company. Any help with this would be great. I cant have my money taken from my checking account, that is how I pay my bills to support my kids. I am a single mom now and only have one income.

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.
