I just picked up a registered letter saying that I was being sued by Calvary SPV and I have a court date of January 30, 2015. It says on the letter to call the magistrates office immediately to tell them if I intend to defend myself. I got "served" last year over this same debt by Portfolio Recovery. I say "served" because I believe they were fake papers and were trying to scare me. I also received something shortly after that saying there was a default judgment against me because I didn't respond to the summons. I can't find a judgement against me, but say there is one, can Calvary still sue for the same debt? Shouldn't I have received something stating they were planning on suing me and giving me 20 or 30 days to respond to the company? This is just a letter from the magistrate stating I have a Civil Action Hearing on January 30th at 10:15 am. On the next page, it is a paper saying Calvary SPV, as assignee of GE Retail Bank is the assignee and successor in interest of account number ending in 7038. The credit account was issued to defendant by GE Retail Bank, the original creditor and defendant used the account. Amount due is $1,117.67. File No 388926 and it is signed by Filance Manuel verifying the facts are true. The last page is Entry of Appearance and it states that David J. Apothaker, Esquire will be their representative and his address and phone number. I believe I last paid this in 2011, so the SOL is not up, I don't believe. Would I go by PA or New York where Calvary is located? Also, what happens if they don't show up to the hearing? Can they send a local lawyer to take their place? I don't see someone driving 9 hours (the lawyer is out of New Jersey) for a debt of $1000. I had more questions but now I am blank as to other stuff I was wondering. Any help would be great!
