Bill of sale for the debt with most of it blacked out and a affidavit from one of their employees.) I am just trying to determine my best plan of defense or attack that i should take. I plan on filing my response tomorrow with a denial or lack of knowledge for the answers except who the original creditor was.. I have been doing a lot of reading and just a little unsure of the next steps I should take or take them. When I file my response do I need to also include my affirmative Defense? Also what would be my best defense? challenge Midland in they actually own the account? Challenge no original contract was included, or try to go thru the JAMS process. \Thanks for any info and guidance!
