  1. making my semi-annual appearance
  2. While this is good, keep in mind too that PA is a TWO party state, meaning you must have permission from BOTH parties to record a phone conversation. Seeing that the OP is in PA, the aforementioned script might not work with PA's laws. Unless it's clear where the collection calls are coming from, this may or may not even applicable.
  3. Start recording the phone calls and keep tapes of all the voice messages that are being left. Then fire off a letter citing the various violations. Additionally, send a C&D letter and if that doesn't work, be prepared to sue.
  4. I would assume that they can charge late fees simply because you continued to pay on the vehicle. If you were delinquent prior to Aug 2008 then any payments they received from you in that month would automatically go towards covering the outstanding charges. If you knew that there were outstanding charges, then it is your responsibility to know that any payments applied to your account would cover any and all past due balances. I don't believe the creditor had to notify you or your attorney of this, as had the payments been made on time, there would be no outstanding charges. Given all of that, if you still are unsure of your rights, speak with your attorney about this as they should be able to clarify things for you.
  5. Very sound advice Denita! Speaking from experience with a ch 13, I would have to absolutely concur that having your ch 13 amended to include the three debts you listed in your post plus any other debts that you may have left out, would be far better for you in the long run.
  6. Don't cancel the card. It may have an adverse effect on your already damaged score. If I were you, I would keep the card but exercise due diligence in using it. Use it once a month, only charging what you can afford to pay off before the bill is due. If you do this, it will improve your score. Now is the time for you to learn to practice some good credit habits. If you can do this, you will be successful in further improving your score. Congrats to you!
  7. Hello everyone! After a long absence I am back Lots of things have happened and I just wanted to pop in here and say hi! I finally got my bankruptcy discharged in August of 2009 and in August 2010 I purchased a new car, which I'm very excited about! For those that are new here, this is an invaluable place to be! There is a ton of help and guidance here and on the main site so please relax, take a deep breath and let your new life begin I know mine has!
  8. I tried to become a mega post whore.... and I was going at a pretty decent clip until I realized that my job was going in the toilet and that my health was taking over and told me to stop staying up until 3am doing nothing and to get back to doing something constructive. I took a break from the forums for a while. Don't know if I'll be back on a permanent basis or not...I've just really been busy with two kids and my life. Anyway... I miss ya all!
  9. Yep... put it all on my account.... On account that I have no money. TNP is buying all CIC forum residents fruitcake logs for the holidays!
  10. Hello all! I'm back! Lots has happened over the last year so I've been concentrating on problems at home and finding solutions to such. Anyways, I just wanted to give a shout out to all my old friends here.
  11. Just wanted to drop in and say hiya to all! We are three weeks away from out MAW trip and the girls are getting excited! I am too!! I've been keeping busy with work and with the outside of the house. Now that the weather is getting nicer, I have been cleaning out all four gardens (three flower and one veggie) and planting new stuff. Just finished laying down mulch in the girls' garden. They love it. I have snap dragons, petunias, pansies, crocuses, daffodils and tulips in their garden. I also planted some gladioli bulbs, but I don't expect them to pop up until next year. I tore out a rhododendron bush that was getting out of control and planted some flowers in the empty spot. Also edged the driveway and curbs so they look nicer. The outside is coming together nicely. Now for the inside.... still have lots to get rid of. I wanted to hold at least one yard sale before the trip so I would have spending money for the girls while we're at WDW. If I get up the energy to clean out the garage, I might do a yard sale next weekend. Sadly, the whole benefit thing for Jordan fell through. That's okay though, because we're going to have a great time no matter what! Well, that's all for now~~
  12. Omg these are funny..... Had something creepy happen to me yesterday.... TruGreen Chemlawn called me on my office phone. Now, mind you, they had called me the day before looking for a Ms. Ball. I said there is no Ms. Ball that has this number and they said "Thank you" and hung up. The caller ID clearly showed "TruGreen" and their number the first time they called. Here's where it gets weird.... I get a call from them last night, which I missed because I was mowing the lawn and came back inside to find the missed call message on my phone. Okay... fine. I check the caller ID to see who it was that called. I got totally creeped out when I saw the phone number and then my own name on the caller id... xxxx.xxxxxxxxx So I called the number and the TruGreen people answered. Me: Did someone at your business just call my number? Rep: What's your number? Me: xxx-xxx-xxxx Rep: "nope, that number is not in our registry." Me: Are you sure? Because I have YOUR number showing up as a missed call on MY phone, but it has MY name on the caller ID right above YOUR phone number. Care to figure that one out? Rep: That's really strange. Me: Yeah, it's creepin me out. Ya know? Rep: Okay, hold on.... Jeremy - CS Rep: Hi, I hear we called your number? So I go through the whole thing again with Jeremy. He says he'll take my number out of their registry - Hmm... thought it wasn't in there to begin with - and he'll let his field manager know what happened. So I said ok and got the managers name and hung up.... Hopefully I won't get telemarketing calls from TruGreen anymore. it's just so creepy seeing my own name and someone elses number on the caller ID. This ever happen to anyone else?
  13. I work as a medical records retriever. I facilitate procuring medical records from facilities for insurance companies. Sometimes insurance companies need these records for certain types of policies such as life insurance, long term care insurance, disability insurance etc. Sometimes I get the records so the insurance companies can process insurance claims.
  14. Morrow, I found this... hope it helps: Chapter 19.240 RCW Gift certificates 19.240.005 Intent. It is the intent of the legislature to relieve businesses from the obligation of reporting gift certificates as unclaimed property. In order to protect consumers, the legislature intends to prohibit acts and practices of retailers that deprive consumers of the full value of gift certificates, such as expiration dates, service fees, and dormancy and inactivity charges, on gift certificates. The legislature does not intend that chapter 168, Laws of 2004 be construed to apply to cards or other payment instruments issued for payment of wages or other intangible property. To that end, the legislature intends that chapter 168, Laws of 2004 should be liberally construed to benefit consumers and that any ambiguities should be resolved by applying the uniform unclaimed property act to the intangible property in question. 19.240.090 Value of gift certificate held in trust by issuer — Bankruptcy. (1) A gift certificate constitutes value held in trust by the issuer of the gift certificate on behalf of the beneficiary of the gift certificate. The value represented by the gift certificate belongs to the beneficiary, or to the legal representative of the beneficiary to the extent provided by law, and not to the issuer. (2) An issuer of a gift certificate who is in bankruptcy shall continue to honor a gift certificate issued before the date of the bankruptcy filing on the grounds that the value of the gift certificate constitutes trust property of the beneficiary. (3) The terms of a gift certificate may not make its redemption or other use invalid in the event of a bankruptcy. (4) This section does not require, unless otherwise required by law, the issuer of a gift certificate to: (a) Redeem a gift certificate for cash; ( Replace a lost or stolen gift certificate; or © Maintain a separate account for the funds used to purchase the gift certificate. (5) This section does not create an interest in favor of the beneficiary of the gift certificate in any specific property of the issuer. (6) This section does not create a fiduciary or quasi-fiduciary relationship between the beneficiary of the gift certificates and the issuer unless otherwise provided by law. (7) The issuer of a gift certificate has no obligation to pay interest on the value of a gift certificate held in trust under this section, unless otherwise provided by law. 19.240.900 Application — 2004 c 168 §§ 1-12. Sections 1 through 12 of this act apply to: (1) Gift certificates issued on or after July 1, 2004; and (2) Those gift certificates presumed abandoned on or after July 1, 2004, and not reported as provided in RCW 63.29.170(4).
