  1. Hey everyone! I came across this website in my googles and have spent the past 2 days reading up on A LOT in this forum, for which I am eternally grateful for! All the knowledge and help that have been provided has been weirdly comforting to me, knowing I'm not the only one going through this, so thank you all so much! Despite that though, I'm still feeling very anxious, nervous, and uncertain about this whole process, it's the first time I’ve ever had to go through this, so any guidance and advice on how to proceed would be tremendously appreciated. I've filled out & included t
  2. Not sure where to post this. I received a letter from Rubin and Rothman New York ( I live in New York City/Queens) about a old Bank of American credit card debt. It reads that the "creditor has a claim against you in the above amount" (10,600). Bank of AMerican is stated as Current creditor and as an Original creditor. The letter says that "unless you dispute the validity of the debt, or portion thereof, within thirty days, we will assume the debt to be valid. If you notify us in writing withing 30 days ...we will obtain verification of a debt and or a copy of a judgment against you and mail
  3. Hello, My name is Nicole and I have been sued. My first thought was to do nothing but as I began to research options I came across this site and actually found hope. It has been so helpful to read so many people stories, and the outpouring of help and support without judgment. Thanks in advance for any help. Well here I go I received a summons in the mail along with what looks like a document from the court notifying me I have been sued. The two letters are from the same sender according to the Pitney Bowes postage. One document shows a filed stamp dated Feb 07 2018, The Pitney Bowes
  4. I have been sued by one of my creditors, received summons, and I have retained legal counsel. The agency who owns the debt currently is willing to settle for $1500 less than what is owed. Quite frankly, I'm in a position where if I settle the account for what the agency is offering, I'm not saving much money after all legal fees and expenses, but the issue will be over and done with. If I litigate the case, is there a chance that the company will settle for a lesser amount, assuming they don't want to go to trial? If i decide to litigate, I will have to pay my lawyer $1,000 more, but I w

  8. Hey all Started new topic as my last post from a couple days back didn't get any replies. Could y'all check out my new ? at: http://www.creditinfocenter.com/community/topic/322787-notice-to-admit/ In summation, I am wondering about the ability to send a BOP and interrogs in NY. Since I hadn't heard anything and this is time-sensitive, I resent them my BOP (which they had returned to me, citing a rule which has to do with not being allowed to send a BOP and interrogs in NY, and I'd already sent interrogs), but changed the language from Bill of Particulars to Supplemental Interrogatories. An
  9. I just wanted to come on the forum and thank everyone in this community for the great information. The information I learned from here helped me go up against Midland Funding in court and it was unremarkably amazing how easily they back off once you kick the legs out of their faux case. In my experience, they had no evidence to prove they owned an account from the OC. They had bought a portfolio of debt that must have been sold multiple times before it ended up with them. Their portfolio of an alleged debt I owed had CC statements, a bill of sale, cert of conformity, among other things.
  10. Hello everyone, I was referred here by a friend who said you guys are the best people to ask for advice regarding legal matter. I am helping a family member by translating on his behalf on a case with a junk debt buyer in NY (Portfolio Recovery associates) for the amount of $6000. During the first meeting, he didn’t have a translator and he requested me so the judge gave him 4 months for me to come back. During the second case, I questioned the junk debt buyers creditability in court by asking them to provide proof of account transfer from Chase, they had no answer so they delayed the case 4
  11. Has anyone dealt with and had success with vacating a NY tax warrant? The story is as follows - I worked two jobs for a few years. This year, apparently the IRS modified one of my W2s from 2008 which then changed what my state return should have been. I received a bill from NY Tax and Finance sometime in the middle of last year (around June). I moved a few weeks later and kind of forgot about it. So, in around November I received another bill and went through my tax info to try to figure it out why (the bill said nothing about why I owed the money). A couple weeks later I checked my cred
  12. I am really confused about this topic. There was a tax warrant placed on me for less than $300 for something that I was unaware was happening. It was an innocent mistake. I paid it immediately and sent a letter to the NY tax correspondence department. I then followed up today (3 weeks after I sent the letter) and asked if there was somebody I could talk to in order to have the warrant vacated. First he told me they only did that if the warrant was placed in error or if I paid it before it was placed. I paid it about 3 days after and was unaware it was being placed it was for around $300. So
