  1. I've always wondered this, but which credit card agreement applies on a debt collection? Is it always the most current, or when the account was opened, or when the account was defaulted? If I do an MTC arbitration, does this agreement attached indicate that I have to pay the filing fee? In the best buy cc agreement attached, it says this in the PAYMENT section. We will pay your share of the arbitration fee for an arbitration of claims of $75,000 or less if they are unrelated to debt collection. Otherwise, arbitration fees will be allocated according to the applicable AAA rules. And it looks like I'm only allowed to arbitrate with AAA. Does that mean I'll have to pay the fees to file since this is related to debt collection? I'm just wondering if the Best Buy credit card is something I should pursue arbitration with against PRA.

  3. I am currently using Lexington law to remove some collections, they are doing a great job, we are attempting to get a mortgage soon so our credit has to be good. Unfortunately my wife decided to not (forgot) pay our best buy bill on time, couldn't be a worse time. Its now listed on our reports as 30 days late. Long story short, we have never had a late payment with best buy after like 8 years with them.. Does anyone think that contacting Citibank or whoever does my credit through best buy, and explaining why, or that we are trying to purchase a house, would do anything???? Like simply asking the creditor to remove this, this one time, after 8 years without a late payment? Explaining that we are trying to purchase a house? Anyone have any suggestions on this???
  4. Hi forum, after some research this seems to be the best place I can find to ask for some guidance from others who have been in similar situations. Firstly I reside in Louisiana and have so for all my life. This morning my husband received a knock at the door, upon peering out the window he saw a sheriffs deputy holding some paperwork. I should also mention that our american bulldog (who is a big baby) barks quite ferrociously when our door is rapped upon. My husband called through the door and asked what the deputy needed. He said he had paper work for Me (Said My Name). My husband informed the deputy that I was at work and asked him to leave the papers outside the door. The deputy replied that he could slide them through a crack in the door, but "please dont let the dog out" (LOL) He slid through the door a citation for me for a "Request for Admission of Fact" from Midland Funding llc. What is odd is that he I think the barking dog made him so nervous that he fogot to sign the papers. The bottom of the citation reads as follows __________________________________________________ SHERIFF'S RETURN LAFAYETTE PARISH SHERIFF DATE SERVED:__________________,20______TIME:_______ SERVED:____________________________________________ PERSONAL( )________________________________________ DOMICILLARY ( ) ON___________________________________ UNABLE TO LOCATE MOVED ( ) NO SUCH ADDRESS ( ) RECEIVED TO LATE FOR SERVICE ( ) SERVICE OF WITHIN PAPERS COSTS FEE $__________ MILEAGE $___________ TOTAL $__________ DEPUTY_______________________________________________ The deputy didnt fill out any of this form. My question is: Is this something that I could potentionally use to my advantage in my dealings with Midland Funding LLC? any ideas or suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated as I have never had to deal with a debt collector in this way. Also, I am in need of guidance on how to deal with a Petition for "Admission of fact" from Midland Funding LLC. I will greatfully provide any information as it pertains to the Petition that is needed to better understand my circumstances. Thank you so much in advance.
  5. Okay here goes.. I've done plenty of research, as much as I can without going crazy. I read the Debt Settlement, Step by Step topic and was really hoping Step 20 was going to be posted before the end.. Not finding the answers I need and the copious acronyms are a little intimidating. I have a $5000 best buy credit card debt which I have not paid anything on since 2/2013, so a little over a year. I called best buy, they have since switched from capital one to citi bank and they gave me the number for citi card 800-978-8800 (I googled that which brought me to this forum, actually). I have not called them yet, but I wish to settle $500-$1000, the lowest they will take. I've heard that calling at the end of the month will help, as they need to fullfil a quota and they're more flexible. The way I see it, step by step for my case goes like this: -Call them -Give them info to find me -Offer $500 settlement -Haggle and find a compromise I just want to make sure I'm not missing anything.
