I had been served with a law suit by Pride Acquisitions for a total amount with interest, penalties and costs for more than $50,000!

What a horrible day for Pride Acquisitions. And what an amazing victory for you.

I am very proud of you. It is not easy to stand up in Court when the other side is represented by a lawyer and actually be prepared to try your case.

You hit a grand slam on Friday. Congrats!!!!!!!!!

I'm having the same problem in CT but haven't been served yet. The law firm they use made it sound like they were representing Chase, but I called Chase and they said my account had been sold to Pride Acquisitions. Basically being threatened with a lien on my house, garnishing my wages, etc., unless I agree to their terms. I tried to negotiate but was told no, it was their way or no way. Now that I know who I am really dealing with, I don't want to settle at all. As far as I know, there is no such thing as BOP in CT. What is the best thing to do first???

Thanks so much!

watch out for appeal that is some real money. Congratulations again. I bet you couldn't even poo a thread until after trial. And there is nothing wrong with a grey hair quoting shakespeare:

"This day is called the feast of Crispian:

He that outlives this day and comes safe home,

Will stand a tip-toe when this day is named,

And rouse him at the name of Crispian.

He that shall live this day, and see old age,

Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbours,

And say, 'To-morrow is Saint Crispian:'

Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars,

And say, 'These wounds I had on Crispin's day.'

Old men forget: yet all shall be forgot,

But he'll remember with advantages

What feats he did that day. Then shall our names,

Familiar in his mouth as household words,

Harry the King, Bedford and Exeter,

Warwick and Talbot, Salisbury and Gloucester,

Be in their flowing cups freshly remembered.

This story shall the good man teach his son;

And Crispin Crispian shall ne'er go by,

From this day to the ending of the world,

But we in it shall be remember├Ęd;

We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;

For he to-day that sheds his blood with me

Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile

This day shall gentle his condition:

And gentlemen in England, now a-bed

Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,

And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks

That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day!"

Because you can always say to anyone that I defended myself in court successfully and did not bow before a bully. The law many of us don't know crap about it but the laws to protect us can be learned in 6 months.

I applaud you for with so much at stake you didn't waiver and now inspire others to the use of the law. Hopefully the court will have a long memory and jdb's are on the outs in that courthouse.

I filed a "General Denial" before a default was filed by Pride Acquisitions. Can you tell me what will happen next?

Hi, I have read this whole thread, I too am dealing with Pride Acquisitions, I am trying to fill out the "General Denial" Form PLD-050, however I am not sure what I should be writing as my reason ?

Let me back-track just a little, I received a summons from a Company listed as Thunderbolt Holdings LTD, LLC, however I then received a fax from them ( I thought) and now they are using the name Pride Acquisitions... I am still in my 30 day period after receiving the summons. Following all the posts from you and others, I see my first step is to file my answer. Well that's where I am... I am just not clear on the remark section of the PLD-050, also not sure I can use this as they are claiming the "alleged balance" is over 50,000.00

Can anyone hep?? Thank you

Hi legaleagle,

Thank you so much for helping me! I just got served today, not even in person. Found the summons stuffed in my door. I'm confused because I know Chase sold my account to Pride Acquisitions because I called Chase and asked, but the Plaintiff listed says Thunderbolt Holdings LTD, LLC. The summons says they were assigned the account on 12/14/2011, but I called Chase in Feb and they said Pride. And of course the attorneys are are Baker, Sanders, etc. The offices for both Pride and Thunderbolt are in the same states, and the owners are listed as foreign. I think they are one and the same, just operating under different names. The summons says I have to file an "Appearance" form (I'm in CT) before the Return Date, which is May 15th. Should I go ahead and do that?

Looks like I have to file the Appearance form before anything else...but I don't know how to file a general denial. I see the boxes where you check off if you accept of deny, but do I have to explain the reasons why I am denying the charges right now, or does that come later???

I have 2 counts: 1) Breach of Contract 2) Account Stated. I need to fill out the answer form, which just has check boxes and a special defenses section. It says to answer each paragraph, which I assume are the 2 counts even though they list many things under each count.

I only have to check the denial boxes? I don't have to write why I deny them? Does that come later, or do you think this will be the end of it?

Thank you for your help, I am so appreciative beyond words.

Filed my answer at the court, send a copy registered mail to opposing counsel. Now I'm getting messages on my phone from Baker, Sanders, etc. saying they want to "help me out"...they're so full of it.

They want to help you out all right, help you out of your hard earned money.

What JD? Hartford, Litchfield, New Haven, Fairfield, etc. How's it going? Couple of good CT posters here, me and My Cuz'n Vinny.

The court is in Putnam, CT. The latest message today said they are "moving forward with this with or without my help". What does that mean? They never called me until I filed the answer, can't get a default judgement against me now. Is that why they're calling? To try to convince me to settle this?

I am not a great expert when it comes to the FDCPA, but my friend Coltfan1972 is. Pitch this to him, I am not sure if this is a violation. PM him and tell him I said to ask, he will advise. It sounds like continued collections after litigation. Putnam, huh? Who's the judge? That is JD Windham, Poster My Cuz'n Vinny is in that JD. He can give you a better feel for that particular court, I can help you with procedure. Settlement offers may not be a violation, we'll see. It's very odd that they would do this after suit is filed. Don't worry, a a second JDB has virtually no chance of beating any good pro se. Read Coltfan's Midland posts, these apply. When did you file the answer? Things have to advance in a certain time frame here. This would be in Practice Book Section 10, also see 10-6, pleadings and their order. Read up. 10-8 is time to plead. Hammer them, file every motion and objection you can, they will give up guaranteed. If you need a form PM me I have it all.

I've been demurring to Pride Acquisition's lawsuit here in California because they claim to be suing on a written contract, but they didn't state the terms of the agreement or attach a copy of the agreement. Its worked so far and the Court has agreed. But on their third complaint, they attached a bunch of account statements I don't recognize and claim that it is the agreement. What should I do this time.
