  1. Hello. I hope I am in the right forum. I am currently unemployed and I REALLY need some help regarding my issue. I am currently located in Dallas, TX (Dallas County). I received two letters in the mail today from two local attorneys. The first letter is from Rausch Sturm and the second letter is from Heston Law Firm LLC. The letter from Rausch Sturm has my name, the Creditor (Portfolio Recovery Associates), case# filed with the Dallas Co. court (precinct 1), account balance ($2,954.47) and account #. The letter from RS is dated September 16, 2019. Briefly, the letter says: "Dear <my name>: If you have any concerns regarding the resolution of your account, please let us know by calling......We want to understand your situation and work with you to agree on a reasonable payment arrangement to resolve your account." The back of the letter has the firm's contact info and the amounts needed to setup a payment arrangement. The letter from Rausch Sturm has my name, a Case # filed with the Dallas Co. court (precinct 1), account balance and account #. The letter is dated September 16, 2019. The second letter from Heston states the following: "We learned from the Dallas County Clerk's office that Portfolio Recovery Associates LLC filed a lawsuit against you on 8/26/2019 for an unpaid debt. We want to help you with the lawsuit. Over 95% of our clients never appear in court......" I called the court this morning and a lawsuit was filed, but I cannot see it online. I logged into credit karma and the original creditor is Comenity Bank, account may have been opened around 2014/2015. The statue of limitations in Texas is 4 years. As of right now, I have not been served. I didn't know a lawsuit was filed in the court until today. I have no info regarding a court date or any other court details. Should I seek free legal aid regarding this issue? As stated, I am currently unemployed and looking for a job. There's an option for a low monthly payment plan in the letter, but funds are VERY tight right now. I would hate to have to borrow money from family members because they have their financial obligations also. But, I haven't been served yet so I wanted to be proactive and figure out what my options are at this point. Any assistance would be helpful. ,
  2. I received a packet from Midland Funding LLC with the first page basically the judge granted them permission to serve me though the mail. That was signed on 6/27/2017. The citation is attached and says it was filed 5/1/2017 and had 14 days to respond. I didn't receive it until 7/26/2017 because it was forwarded from my old address to my new one. I also have an affidavit relating to damages and business records from Midland. In that my account number is covered; not sure if that matters, and it says when the account was charged off 2-26-2015 and when Barclays bank sold it to Midland 9-30-2016 and that as of 3-6-2017 nothing has been paid off. Along with those documents they also have a bank statement copy from Barclaycard (Again, account number is covered and my address) of the month I stopped paying; August 2014 and a copy of the bank statement from March 2015 that included all the late fees and monthly charges. The debt is $2,955.93. I know the debt is mine, how would I respond to it with each paragraph? Do I admit to every paragraph? I've included copies. I really rather they just take my income tax next year because I usually use it to pay off smaller bills like other credit cards and medical bills.
  3. Alright so I had a judgement entered against me today. I went in confident and hoping that I was gonna walk out a winner but that didn't happen. The PRA attorney asked to speak with me before hand. He took me into a room and said he was going to settle with me. I stated I was not interested in settling and was going to ask for a motion to compel private contractual arbitration. We went in front of the Judge and I asked for the arbitration per my credit card agreement. Showed him my copy of the agreement but he didn't even look at it. Judge looks at me confused and asked me if I knew who owned the debt. I stated that PRA apparently owned the debt but I have never signed any documents with PRA stating that I would pay them for the said debt and could not validate that it was even mine. Judge asked the PRA Attorney to give me a copy of the bill of sale and they made me a copy of it. Now that I come to think of it, at the time my account was opened it was GE Money, that is who I signed the contract with. Synchrony bank took over in June of 2015 but I never resigned any documentation with them so how would that documentation be valid. The PRA Attorney has statements, bill of sale showing they owned it. Judge said that my card member agreement was no longer eligible because Synchrony bank does not own the debt but PRA does and entered a Judgment against me. Then the Attorney still states to me he is willing to settle. Weird if I just had the judgement against me in his favor. Judge said I could file an appeal. I am lost and confuse at this point on what to do.
  4. Looking for some assistance on what to do. Back in April I filed my General denial not requesting arbitration, kind of forgot about everything and then got a letter in the mail saying I have court coming up on Monday the 7th of November. I have my member agreement showing I can use arbitration but what I want to know is if they don't back down how do I request for the private arbitration as stated in my card members agreement. Any help would be great. I would like to know how to write out the Motion to Compel Private Contractual Arbitration and what how to file it when I do go to court on Monday. I am in Dallas County, JP Court.
