  7. I sent a DV to Portfolio Recovery for a Wells Fargo Card they are reporting on my CR. They have not yet verified, and it is not 30 days yet. Yesterday in the mail, I received a collections letter from Howard Lee Schiff ( supposed atty's ) now trying to collect on this debt for Portfolio Recovery. Is this a FDCPA violation since Portfolio has not yet verified this debt from my DV ?
  8. I was served a summons in May to appear in court on June 12th for mediation, I am being sued by Portfolio Recovery Services, for a Credit Card, I supposedly had in 2008, I say supposedly, Because I do not remember having a credit card at all, and especially in that time frame, as I will ill and going through Medical treatments for a little over a year. The attorneys are out of Miami FL by the name if Hyat, Hyat and Landau. I appeared in Court and when the judge asked me if I was guilty of the claim (Or some verbiage to that extent) I told him, that I wanted the case dismissed. He asked be why
  9. Sorry bout the caps...dang caps Any way they called today about an electric bill for 500 bucks...I have no idea about this debt but they did tell me that the last payment was in 2003. I told them they do not have my consent to call me at the number they have. I also told them not to call me again about this account and they said the usual, we will call as much as we like until the account is settled. I told them I will be sending them a cease and desist and they that that would only be a temporary measure for 30 days and they can continue to call after that. They said that the call c
  10. Hello, I am new to this board, I recieved a letter in the mail yesterday that I was being sued by Blatt, Hasenmiller, Leibsker & Moore. This IS NOT a summons, it just simply states that there was a lawsuit filed against me by this lawfirm on behalf of portfolio recovery associates. Then they go on to say that they want me to call them to discuss "your proposal for resolving the lawsuit." It was not signed by an attorney either. So after this, I went and looked up on my local court website, and sure enough they have filed suit against me a week and a half ago, and I still havn't been served
  11. Hello everybody. Here is my case: Back in 2002-2004 I opened few credit cards. Over time (Oct 2005 for BofA, July 2005 for Chase Bank, July 2005 for HSBC, July 2005 for Chase), I refused to have any contact with all the Credit Card Companies due to their bullying practices. Since then, they never heard of me. I changed 3 addresses (moved three times) ever since. The account was open in Tennessee, now I live in Arizona. I did not move to get rid of them, I just followed my life and career, etc... Per the Credit Report of July 2010: *******QUOTE****** BANK OF AMERICA Status: Transferred,closed.

  13. I learned late last year after being denied a credit card from my longtime credit union (who specifically stated that this collection account was the reason for denial) that someone had used my name, Social Security number, and other personal information while I was a minor to open a credit card account with Capital One back in 2008 when I was 15-16 years old. This account is now owned by Portfolio Recovery Associates. Since the debt is so old, and the trail leading to whoever did it is 99.99% likely cold, I didn't think there was any other option but to try and settle. I initiated contact wit
  14. 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

Start posting case laws for governing laws, I do Florida that is where I live I know them: Capital One vs Steven Pincus Case number 502007SC016285 Originally Posted by BV80 "Florida courts consider the statute of limitations to be substantive, and therefore the statute of limitations of the parties’ chosen forum will apply where there exists a contractual choice of laws provision."

  17. Hi everyone. I've been reading your wonderful forum since I was recently served with a summons that I'm being sued. From what I've learned here, I think my next step is to immediately file an answer but I want to be sure I'm doing the right things the right way, so I'm posting here for advice.

Amount being sued for is around $1000 4. Original creditor is a retailer (credit card) 5. Was served a summons 6. Was served in person

  19. Thank you Credit Info Center! I used you debt validation/cease and desist letter for Portfolio Recovery. I did make some changes/additions to it i.e. the number of documented calls from them I have had. I also sent the letter certified, signature return required. I am happy to report, I got a letter back today saying " Portfolio Recovery Associates LLC (PRA) has concluded its investigation of your dispute and is closing your account. " It also went to to say " This is a letter from a debt collector. This communication is made for the limited purpose of responding to your dispute and is NOT
  20. Was served with the court papers 4 months ago. I answered denying all allegations. I havn't heard anything from their lawyers or the court since. Were they just fishing for a quick and inexpensive judgment in their favor (i.e. hoping I wouldn't answer their suit)? How long do they have to proceed to the next step? Additionally, I have since moved out of the state it was filed in. Thanks for any information you can provide.
  21. I just came from an arbitration hearing against Portfolio Recovery Associates via HSBC. The arbitrator has left it up to me to prove whether under the Nevada NRS 11.190 whether a credit card falls under subsection 1 which has a six year statute of limitations or subsection 2 which has a four year statute of limitations. I need help finding Nevada court cases and rulings showing that a credit card is considered an open account and therefore subject to the 4 year statue of limitations.
  22. Im a newb at all this so please bare with me. Im being sued by portfolio recovery associates for $1984 but in their first cause of action they state the breach of contract occurred 6/12/2008. They filed the suit on 5/15/12 and im assuming the suit wont be completed by 6/12/2012 which will be 4 yrs after the breach of contract. Am I correct in assuming the SOL will run out on 6/12/2012? Should I add the statute of limitations defense to my answer or should I just go with a plain general denial defense? Thanks in advance.
  23. I live in Austin Texas and I was served the first week of January for a dept collection law suit by Portfolio Recovery Associates assigned lawyers, in the answer to the court I ask for a signed copy of the original contract and all document that prove I owed the dept. The Plaintiff responded with an affidavit claiming they owned the dept, and one years worth of account statements (2008). They did not have a signed contract and object my request. Since then I have not been contacted by the Plaintiff. There has been no discovery from the plaintiff and no court date set. Does it normally take th
  24. Hello everyone, After going through the forum for about a week I have been trying to formulate a plan of attack. However I have quite a few questions. Thank you all for you patience and of course your wisdom. I've been following diamondmax80gb thread and I'm thinking I would follow about the same course of action. Here is the summary * General Denial with form PLD-C-010 * File with court and serve Plantiff a copy with POS-030 * File Bill of Particulars /w CMRR Q1. I see many people file a response to court by replying to all Paragraph point by point. In PLD-C-010 do I need to res
