  1. Digging up stuff... Texas Fair Debt Collection Practices Act § 392.101. BOND REQUIREMENT. (a) A third-party debt collector or credit bureau may not engage in debt collection unless the third-party debt collector or credit bureau has obtained a surety bond issued by a surety company authorized to do business in this state as prescribed by this section. A copy of the bond must be filed with the secretary of state. ( The bond must be in favor of: (1) any person who is damaged by a violation of this chapter; and (2) this state for the benefit of any person who is damaged by a violation of this chapter. © The bond must be in the amount of $10,000. Acts 1997, 75th Leg., ch. 1008, § 1, eff. Sept. 1, 1997.
  2. I think my answer is due on Thursday or Friday but I've been reading up on things and not getting very far. Whether or not I owe the alleged debt, I want to make sure that if I do settle or make any payments they had better prove it.
  3. Ah ok thank you. Hmm. Options seem slim... more research is needed.
  4. elite1331 Thanks for clearing that up for me! I understand that I may owe the alleged debt (if they prove it), but my question is why is it listed closed when on the complaint it's listed as open? No, they didn't attach the account. What they sent I provided in the thumbnail images a few posts back.
  5. Reading the Civil Procedures...I'm going to have to get comfy.
  6. Should I attach the CR to the answer? Or is that a discovery type thing? On the CR, it says the account status is CLOSED yet on the Complaint it's listed as an Open Account/Account Stated.
  7. Thank you. Oddly the wording on my document differs from what's below - perhaps it's because it's a small claims court? Section 5, b. c. Notice. The citation shall include the following notice to the defendant: "You have been sued. You may employ an attorney. If you or your attorney do not file a written answer with the clerk who issued this citation by 10:00 a.m. on the Monday next following the expiration of twenty days after you were served this citation and petition, a default judgment may be taken against you."
  8. It says it was Issued March 7th and that I have 14 days to respond but I did not recieve the papers until March 20th.... ? Maybe they just meant they sent out the citation on the 7th? I think my answer is due on/before Thursday of this week.
  9. Ok here they are. There were only three, I added the one with the Scott Attorneys.
