Hi everyone. Long story short I was served few weeks ago by a firm representing LVNV in small claims court. I filed my answer but due to some health issues and other personal problems I haven't been able to contact them to make arrangements before recently. I also wanted to scrape together a small lumpsum to offer to pay in good faith. I called and they wanted my pay frequency, take home pay, etc in order to see if anything less than balance would be accepted. I wasn't entirely comfortable giving that out and I told them I'm happy to make a payment via money order and work out arrangements for the remainder afterwards but didn't feel comfortable giving out financial info. Honestly the questions felt like I'm giving them a direct path to garnish me.They were a little rude about it and hung up abruptly after saying I could think about it and call back. I feel so defeated. They said unless the balance is paid in full before court date (next week) they'll get a default judgment and I'll be garnished and responsible for court costs etc. Person I spoke to wasn't the attorney if it matters. They didn't even give me the chance to ask and talk to them. I'm not sure what to do. I don't have the balance to give them. I'm struggling as it is. Any advice is appreciated!
I was served by an officer this morning with a pretrial notice. I’ve never been sued before so I’m not quite sure what to do. Details below: Original Creditor: Credit One Account Open: May 2018 Account Closed: October 2018 Amount Sued For: $1105.15 Attachments: Bill of Sale to Midland, Affidavit of Credit One Bank & Midland, The account info (account #, Name, Bill amount, last payment date, etc.), and my first and last credit card statement. Any advice would be helpful. I’m worried this would impact my credit score that I’ve been working to bring up. Should I work with Midland to pay the debt? Should I file an attribution? Thanks in advance.
Hi all! I am trying to get editing assistance with my affidavit and my answer to a complaint and summons I received 20 days ago from PRA, LLC. I have read so many posts on here including @bmc100 's step by step guide to defending JDB lawsuits and finally think I am ready to drop these off at the CH tomorrow (DUE DATE!). The summons was served in person to my home and only had an affidavit listed as the exhibit A. I have prepared both my affirmative defenses using the MCR 2.113 (F), MCL 600.2145 and MCR 2.201 (B). I am just really stuck on my affidavit and if whether or not my reasons for denying each allegation (plaintiff has not provided any evidence to support this allegation) are durable and correct. I am inlining both the affidavit and the answer for help. Any feedback would be appreciated. Thank you !!!!!
