I was sued by unifund in small claims court Alabama, I counter sued due to clear a FDCPA violation. On their case against me, they failed to perform a key procedure of the court rules and I had the case easily dismissed. On my counter suit, I proved that they failed to cease collection after receiving a validation request, the judge agreed and granted me a 1000 dollar judgement against them. How do I collect? I have researched getting a writ of execution, but how does that work with Unifund being in a different state? Funny how when the shoe is on the other foot, they won't pay their bills!!! Looking for any suggestions, thanks!
So I got a letter June 21st from a Law firm representing Midland Funding LLC about an old Credit card debt I thought I had paid off. So I immediately fired off with a debt Validation letter that was sent delivery confirmation. I was very specific on the debt validation letter and specified that they need to respond by 30-days and also stated that there client needed to stop reporting me to the collection agency while this debt was in dispute. In September I get a certified letter telling me I am being sued, and had my first mediation date, in that mediation date I was very clear that they violated the FDCPA and was in defamation of character. We saw a judge but because the efile system was down and the lawyer for Midland had no clue about the Debt validation I new mediation time was set for this Nov 7th. In that time I have since counter sued for violation of FDCPA, Time, Stress, and Defamation of Character. So I submitted my counter suite and all the attachments and now I am just waiting... I am just nervous and not sure what to do from here as I have never sued or counter sued anyone before.
