Good ole' Swim got a letter in the mail from Hunt & Henriques (H&H) recently.... The letter claims the amount owed to CapitalOne (CO) is ~$6,000.00. Swim responds well within 30 days via Certified Mail Return Receipt Requested (CMRRR), with a simple request for validation. Something along the lines of... "I dispute this. Validate. P.S. Don't call me." H&H wastes no time and sends about a years worth of statements from the alleged CO account, which includes a page from CO that the account was charged off. That's it. A few days later H&H sends their notice of intent to file suit: Swim lives in Southern California, and already checked -- arbitration is out the window due to CO removing that clause. From what Swim can tell, H&H didn't actually validate the debt, and the SOL is in effect for a few more years. Not sure is CO owns the account and H&H represent them -- or if H&H is a Junk Debt Buyer (JDB). And at this point does it make a difference? Should Swim respond and further dispute the alleged debt? Or simply sit back, continue to read up on California threads on https://www.creditinfocenter.com to formulate a game plan, and wait for their next move (which is likely to be what?)? Presumably, with COVID, H&H has collections up to their eyeballs, and Southern California courts are experiencing delays... it could be some time before this makes its way into a courthouse? Or is that wishful thinking? Good ole' swim isn't an easy target, and isn't going to roll over. What's the best course of action to get a jump start to defend against this alleged debt, presuming H&H follows through on their intent to file suit? Thanks! ~Swim
I am not a smart person in general, and when it comes to credit reports, well then, that stuff might as well be in a foreign language. I had a GM Mastercard with HSBC. After default and collection activities, the account was purchased by Cap One (like all hsbc accounts). Here is what my tradeline shows HSBC/Capital One/Speedy Muffler King. What the hell is speedy muffler king? This is the closest thing I could think of...
