Being sued by Portfolio Recovery Associates via Hunt & Henriques Law Firm here in Southern California. (Synchrony Bank est. $3500) Things have moved along quickly since initial filing just over a year ago. I am now 2 weeks away from trial. Answered summons and discovery. I sent my own request for discovery/ Request for Documents only a month ago. I'm sure there's plenty I could've done differently. Upside- I have 2 more of these things at early/ discovery stages. So, yay! I can use this experience to potentially help with the others. (Seriously, though. 🙄 ) Back to the matter at hand.
I am being sued by Portfolio Recovery in the state of Texas for $1685.58 for a JCPenney credit card. Count 1 is Breach of Contract and Count 2 is Account Stated. I was served today, March 11, 2015 in person. I called the debt collection agency and agreed to set up a payment plan as I do owe this money. I gave them my checking account info and agreed verbally to pay 20% on March 31, 2015, and then the remainder over the next fiscal year to pay the debt in full. The affidavit states that Portfolio Recovery purchased this account in August 2010. My husband is furious with me because he says
Back in Aug 2014 i was served with a lawsuit from Portfolio Recovery on a GE credit card that went bad in 2010. At first i panicked, my first thought was to call them and make a payment arrangement. But after speaking with my husband he told me to hold off and do some research. So i sat back for about a week and did some thinking. The first thing i did was file an answer to lawsuit. I simply stated that the Statute of limitation in Texas is 4 years and that this debt is Time barred. I also stated that if they pursued this lawsuit i would file suit against them for violating my fair credit rig
I just received a letter from a law firm soliciting their services for a apparent lawsuit filed against me by American Express. I looked up the case number and found it was filed on September 23rd, 2013. Acccording to the letter I must respond in 30 days of the filing but I still not received a summons. There is only seven days left to answer and I have been completely caught upwith payments since August and continuing making payments on time. How do I answer this lawsuit without a summons?
