  1. Then I'd try contacting the county clerk, the county department of human services, and the county treasurers department. SOMEWHERE in the county government, this guy has a boss. Keep pushing until you find someone who will connect you with his boss. What's it going to cost you but some time? NOT doing it is going to cost you how many more years of bad credit? I just wouldn't be willing to give up on this yet. Someone is in a position to exert pressure on this guy and force him to consider your evidence. You've just got to find that person. Heck, I'd drive to the county building and start
  2. Send a certified letter to the County Director/Manager, the Director of the water department, and any other "VIP" in your county you can find an address for, marked "Personal and Confidential." Outline what happened, include a copy of your proof of residency, maybe a signed letter from the landlord showing you'd left, and tell him you have a recording of the previous clerk stating the disconnect request was in your file. It's worth a shot. I wouldn't lay down and take it just because some jerk on a power trip said no. Even though it's with a CA, they might be able to pull it back or help so
  3. Laugh at me if you want, but this has me seriously confused. I understand what bumping "is" (pulling your CR daily to get inquiries off your CR) but I don't understand how it works. Do you understand what I mean? I was always under the impression that requests "I" make for my CR don't show to creditors, so I can't figure out how pulling my CR is going to cause real inquiries from real creditors to fall off my credit report. Also, I've seen people use *b or *b* or b* around here, but it doesn't seem like they're necessarily referring to bumping. And have seen "b.u.m.p.i.n.g" used, and I gue
  4. The Pennsylvania Attorney General has an elder abuse unit I'd contact immediately. And there's the Pennsylvania Department of Aging you can contact as well. Denying her medical care is criminal and should be treated as such. I'm sorry, but your uncle sucks and should be imprisoned. Like Leslie said, document everything. Also ask the aides if they'd write a notarized letter outlining their observations and dealings with your uncle. The sooner you act on this, the better for your grandmother - god forbid he manages to strong-arm someone into discharging her.
  5. From the article: Yes, but you aren't charging us to use your service and then subjecting us to situationally inappropriate ads, either. You definitely have the higher moral ground here.
  6. I'm LOVING the scrapbook idea! That's fabulous!!
  7. I envy you. I found my bio family two years ago. My bio mom had died, and no one knew who my bio dad is. I've been slowly building a relationship with my siblings and the rest of the family ever since. I'm glad your search went so well! Since after your first "meet," he had engraved "together at last," maybe you could use a phrase like "together forever more" or "family forever more." His engraving was a nod to the past, yours could be a nod towards the present and future. As to what it could be engraved upon, I did a google search on "very sentimental father's day gifts" without quote
  8. Well, we can always hope there'll be a little "accident" at the Arsenal that levels A$$hat's building but leaves all employees and structures of the Arsenal unharmed.
  9. Thanks for the great suggestions - still trying to cut it down. LOL
  10. A huge huge thanks to Leslie for helping me to refine the letter. With a bit more tweaking on my part, I think it will be pared down to a more reasonable length. Even with all the fantastic edits done by Leslie, I'm still looking at a three page word document. I just want to make sure I cover everything fully, especially since the "goodwill" aspect of this request is wrapped up in the actions of the hospital's billing department, the collection agency and the attorney. If those actions aren't outlined fully, there's no reason for the hospital's president to intervene. Here's what it has be
  11. I can't find information about a CEO for my hospital. I did find the President of the hospital, is that probably the same thing? I wrote a letter just to try and get it all out on paper. Problem is, it's like three pages long. I don't really have a "sob story" to tell, and I won't make up a lie just to get a delete, so I told the truth. But telling the truth took a lot of words because there's two issues relating to the collections of these medical bills that I believe this guy might feel sympathy towards us for. If anyone is willing to review this letter, I'd appreciate it. If you have s
  12. Anytime someone wants to head over to my house and take over doing this crap, the door is OPEN!!!! God, even with all the great information and direction I get by asking my stupid questions, not to mention all the resources right at my fingertips thanks to years of you all posting your own situations and experiences, wading through this mess I made is seriously ONE OF THE HARDEST THINGS I have ever done. Sure, I was hoping there was a quick fix. And even now, I'm always looking for the most efficient (read: easiest) route to accomplish what I want to accomplish, but I've been studying here an
  13. I think addressing it to the hospital's CEO would possibly work, especially since this is a rural hospital. Though affiliated with a network of hospitals, they are ALL small/rural hospitals, so the "service" tends to be more personal generally speaking. To clarify, do you mean I should send the payments, along with a letter to the CEO? Or just send a letter to them, and payment later? Also, regardless of if I'm sending payment WITH the sympathy letter to the CEO, or sending payment after the letter, since there are like 5 different bills, do I send one check for all 5 bills, with the 5 payme
  14. I have some medical collections I'm trying to pay, all less than two years since date of service rendered. They're pretty much all with the same provider and collection agency. I also had more current medical bills due which I paid recently. Here is a thread describing what transpired with that. When I set up the payment mentioned above, I asked about paying on the accounts which had gone to collections. The collection agency is definitely collecting on behalf of the OC. Checks sent to them are to be made out to the OC. I was told verbally to deal with the collection agency. I didn't p
