  1. Let me clarify: They are not suing me. I am suing them in small claims. They are trying to settle to make me go away! I am just wondering if this is an acceptable offer and what other terms to request.
  2. 1. 129.00 unverifiable zombie 2. Yes 3. N/A 4.CA
  3. CA wants to settle rather than go to small claims. What is a good settlement amount. CA has offered $500.00. Additionally, I want removal of this timeline. Anything else?
  4. Have her contact Darrell Steinberg's office. He advocates and has written bills for CA renters. He has interns who will give her resources regarding her rights.
  5. I had an account that this CA bought. It has been over seven years from the date of last activity. I have done the verification request, complaint with the BBB and Consumer Financial Bureau. I just sent the dispute to the CRAs on Wednesday. So today I get a call from some woman from Midland Credit Management from "Phoenix" telling me she is recording this call and it is about this SOL account. Tells me they can't sue me but they can continue to collect and report.....what kind of harassment baloney is this? I asked her if this was a joke and to send me verification on the account. So, why i
  6. Well-I would have to add this input-my companion has lost $600,000 so far which puts him back to about 10 years ago financially......his financial advisor blames it on the elimination of the mark to market rule in December and two fed politicos who have completely revamped Wall Street in a few short months-bringing investment banking back into the commercial banking fold....something that has not been done since the 1930's....and with the elimination of the mark to market rule, financial institutions had to begin to state their real value including their bad real estate packages. Values were b
  7. Joey Bergamine, 19, who is preparing for a re-trial in Fayetteville, N.C., on a DUI charge stemming from a July 2007 incident, will argue that he should have been advised of his right to have a lawyer present when his father kicked open his bedroom door hours after the incident to help police officers who had come to question him. Joey's father is the police chief of Fayetteville, and Joey's lawyer said entering a locked room, as well as the subsequent interrogation, constituted "police" action and not "parental" action, and since his dad failed to "Mirandize" him, the charge should be dismiss
  8. Mom of 5, Admin-amidst all the finger pointing these last couple of days, your responses are intelligent, obviously researched, and are very well written. No name calling, party bashing, or accusations.....Very good!
  9. Admin, isn't that the truth? However, the fiat system is at the end of it's road.... A severe recession is coming no matter what this bill looks like or smells like. Throwing money down rat holes is what got us into this mess and this bill is no different. This bill is the tree branches breaking our fall as we hurtle down to bloody rock bottom.... Good luck to everyone on this board, we will need it.....OK-I tend to think in worst case scenario-rosier comments please!
  10. Can't really get too politic.,I am a bit ticked so I would just rant....just watching all the finger pointing, grownups acting like little girls called ugly lol. Imagining the CEOs who walked away with trillions sitting on their yachts, smiling, and giving us all the finger......

Patrick Byrne of course had started a company called,; it was rivaling Amazon when it became a naked short sellers money maker. At one time, 60,000,000 phantom stock existed for Overstock.

  12. Yeah, I think it was $3500 when I finally did the math last night-stupid idea anyway, gads-can you imagine the mark ups on supplies if everyone had the original amount to spend --but nevertheless funny....
  13. So how much would we get if we add $700+ to that plan? Anybody care to do the math?
  14. Received this e-mail and I thought it was very funny: I'm against the $85,000,000,000.00 bailout of AIG. Instead, I'm in favor of giving $85,000,000,000 to America in a We Deserve It Dividend. To make the math simple, let's assume there are 200,000,000 bonafide U.S. Citizens 18+. Our population is about 301,000,000 +/- counting every man, woman and child. So 200,000,000 might be a fair stab at adults 18 and up.. So divide 200 million adults 18+ into $85 billon that equals $425,000.00. My plan is to give $425,000 to every person 18+ as a We Deserve It Dividend. Of course, it would NOT be tax fr
