  1. If you have been contacted - even called - or sued by a debt purchaser in Tennessee, contact the TN AG's Office - Consumer Affairs Division. Most have no license to collect and therefore, you should file a complaint with the Tennessee Collections Services Board. Even if they do have a license and if they did sue you, their Civil Warrants in Debt don't nearly comply with the law. Report them.
  2. Hello Everyone! I have a trial with Portfolio Recovery Associates coming up next week and would appreciate some input on what to expect. So far here is what has happened. 1 Attended first court date. Most of the same things that I have been reading happened. Attorney shows up with around 30 cases with around 20+ default judgments. A couple showed up with attorneys and I have no idea what happened. A few others, including me, were asked to talk outside with the JDB attorney. They came back before the judge and plaintiff received the judgement/settlement. I was the only one that objected. The ju
  3. OK it is time to send in the clowns, Portfolio did what I figured even they would not be so stupid to do. They have sued me for a second time over the same alleged debt without having ever even pursuing the prior suit (which is still on file) after I anwsered it and sent them off discovery. To be clear, they have two active suits against me over the same alleged debt. Actually to be serious I recall asking on here a few months back about whether or not this would be a violation of the law to do this and I seem to remember being told it was so I would appreciate any insight into whether or not
  4. In August, 2012 I requested discovery, interrogatories, admissions from Portfolio Recovery they have not responded. A few days ago I received, by regular mail, no signature required, a REQUEST FOR ARBITRATION from Portfolio that was filed at the Court of Common Pleas, Fayette County, Pennsylvania. It is stamped November 30, 2012 from the county's prothonotary's office. The document states : Kindly refer this matter to the board of arbitators for a hearing. The amount in controversy is $3272.25 or less and the case is at issue for arbitration. The case is to be tried by and noties sent to
  5. Portfolio Recovery Associates is suing me for a credit card debt. I received by UPS the Plaintiff's first request for admissions, interrogatories, and request for production of documents. Why are they requesting documents that they should already have. I live in Pennsylvania didn't understand the civil procedures law. I can't afford an attorney and can not get help through the legal aid society as I don't qualify. Request 1: Produce any and all documents evidencing proof of all payments on the subject credit card reference in the complaint, including but not limited to cancelled checks, r

  7. Hi all, I have a credit card which was issued from GE Capital. It's a private label type card say something like a carpet store would issue. Anyway, I received a letter from Portfolio Recovery Assoc PO Box 12903 Norfolk, VA and the letter reads at the top in BOLD: Notification of Intention to Incur Court Cost by Filing Suit. Is the a violation? I hope it is, I really do. And what should be my next step? DV?
  8. I'm in Utah and have been sued by Portfolio Recovery Associates, LLC and the Attorney for them is Mark Johnson,LLC. They are very aggressive. I sent a letter to validate the debt and they sent me a letter back that had my name, address, last four SSN, and an amount as a validation and then went ahead to sue me. I answered the complaint and have a counterclaim w/ them for $1000 FDCPA violations. They answered with an Opposition of Motion to Dismiss--I answered that with a reply to that Motion. They sent me Interrogatories and Discovery. I sent them a Sworn Denial, and my set of First Discovery
  9. I at one time on my CR's had two tradelines reporting the same account number. One was a HSBC credit card and the other was Portfolio Recovery CA. Both had the same account number but different dates. Portfolio was also reporting the account under a factoring company. I tried to dispute with the CR that they were reporting on the same account number and the they were reporting it as a factoring company which I read is a way to make the account look new even if it is not. After the CA Portfolio as verified I decided to take a chance and report them to BBB. I received a letter from Portfol
  10. I have tried to take in as much information as I can from the other posts on this site, but I might have missed a few references. From my research I believe this is small claims since it is less than 6500 (the mark for CO) Although I am not certain which debt this is regarding (planning on general denial with general defenses while reserving the right to add more later. The funancing program is unique, which for some reason opens up a cc account in lieu of a vehicle loan for motorcycles. The motorcycle was voluntarily repossessed with 'verbal' agreement that the vehicle would likely cover al
  11. I have a default judgement against me won by Midland in 2011, and I am preparing to vacate it for a long time now. I felt that I was not ready yet for a court battle, and thank god that it took me that long, because I just found out about "Portfolio Recovery Associates, LLC vs King", that might help me shrink this debt's SOL from New York's 6 years to Delaware's 3 years. Using Delaware SOL, my debt SOL runs out this months. Now, when I vacate the default judgement based on a sewer service, should I include that in my answer right away, or try to spring it on Midland later on and move to dis
  12. I am working on a case with Portfolio Recovery Assoc, represented by Johnson Mark LLC. I have submitted an answer that denied all of their complaint, received a request for docs and admissions, to which I replied that I objected to their request for admitting that I had a contract with the OC based on the fact they have not supplied the contract, and also objected to their request for documentation asking for the last 6 years of banking info as it was overly broad and burdensome. They replied with a letter stating that the objection to the rfa was not correct as it did not have to do with th

I owe the money and would like to settle, but I don't know what my first step even is to accomplish this. I've received advertising solicitations from 3 different lawyers, but do I really need a lawyer?

I request for documents from them , they answer my request use " Objection, Plaintiff objects to the interrogatory in that it is vague, ambiguous and overly broad.Plaintiff further objects to this Interrogatory because it would cause unreasonable annoyance, oppression, burden and expense and seeks information not relevant to this suit.

  17. I just received this from the Norfolk BBB. I guess calling them out on shady tactics like backdated letters and frivilous payment dates & amounts worked. On November 12, 2012, the business provided the following information: Thank you for bringing this matter to the attention of our office.

I understand that I could throw this in another thread but didn't want to hijack someone else's thread and was hoping for a little help in my own personal case.

  23. Help! I am being sued by Portfolio Recovery Associates in CA. They bought my debt from HSBC bank. They served me with papers in January of this year. I filed an answer at the Superior Court office on form PLD-C-010. In my answer I stated that I never received any document stating that Portfolio Recovery associates were going to sue me (because one of their defenses on the summons was that they sent me multiple papers warning me that if I do not respond that they were going to take legal action.) I also said that I never was in a contract with Portfolio Recovery services, I don't know who the
