  1. sorry I should have clarified the repair. It was a cable that was buried in the yard that was split. They say we caused it, however we had just moved in and the cable never worked right until the repair.
  2. I should have clarified. This is a small local cable company and they bill separate from my cable/phone bill, which is always paid. I just feel like they are screwing me and I am not sure how to fight it
  3. Ok folks, here is what I have. Last NOV 2009 we moved into our home. About a week or so later the cable went out. We called and the guy came. He came to the door and looked at the tv etc, went out came back said its in the cable outside I will fix it. End of discussion. Cable fixed a bit later. 6 months later we get a bill for cable repair. I send them a letter stating that we never authorized the work nor were we aware there were going to be any charges for said repair. They reply stating that they are not required to inform us for and charges for repair. We go back and forth and now they sent me to collections for this. I got a dunning letter today from the collection agency. Now mind you I have 3 times in writing requested they provide me a bill I signed approving the work and they never produced said bill. Question is does the CA get the standard debt validation letter or do I tell then what I have listed here? Thanks
  4. I have a "lawyer" who is trying to collect on an old medical bill. Its over 4 years old so if I am correct its past SOL in California ?? If I am right, what do I send them? THX
  5. All the proof of service is is mailed via first class mail and its signed by someone in that office. I know that because its the same name as signs for my CMRRR stuff when I send it to them. So if I am correct I can send this as is them show I lived at the new address since July 10 and I can get it vacated Thanks
  6. can anyone help? also where do I get an exemption to wage garnishment form and how is it filed? Like a motion? Thanks
  7. We have gone cash, also have an account at another bank. As far as adding fact, on the amended complaint they provided copies of statements but no signed agreement. Not sure what to put in there to rebut. I would like to get this default thrown out so I can arbatrate. Wouldn't this motion as is be enough to get me in front of the judge so I can explain that I would just like the chance to provide and answer? Help?
  8. I was told by the court it was default judgment. I answered the first complaint them nothing for like 2 months, we moved, I notified court and cap one attorney then come to find out about default judgment on amended complaint. I have not seen summary judgment package they sent, seems they FAILED to send me a copy.... SO, what would my next step be? I live to far from the court now to go look at the paperwork. Do you think I can send it in as is and it will fly? I really just want to get this back to where I can file and answer to the amended complaint then I am hitting them with Arbatration. Would it be alright to include something like I would like to be provided with time to file and answer to the amended complaint in this motion? Thanks
