You must understand this: YOU don't have 30 days from service. Your wife does. If you are going to do this on your own, then you can assist her, but she's going to be the one talking in the courtroom, and she's going to have to know what to say and how and when to say it.

 

You are helping by being here. What will help even more is for her to be here. I'm a grandma with absolutely no legal background. If I can learn this stuff, so can she.

 

All that said, check a couple of things. First, check to see how your state defines SOL. Some states claim that any payment moves the SOL. Others, that only a payment that brings the account up to date will do so.

 

At the same time, your wife can be pulling her financial records to see exactly what the last date of payment was. Both the OC and the JDB can be wrong on that.

 

You two can find other threads here with the same plaintiff; search by that name. Do google searches for robo-signing and the OC. 

 

I will have more to say about that particular chain of title after my hearing concludes next week. That particular JDB DOES monitor this site, as do at least some of their DC attorneys.

Last payment according to the statemnts they sent was 09/2011

 

but I was behind in payments around 10/10 or 11/11. The earliest statement they sent was from 02/11 showing I was behind by 3 payments.

 

account was opened in 2002

 

I have to get the bank to search I don't have those bank statements anymore and my account online won't go back that far

If you were already behind at the beginning of 2011, then SOL IS an absolute defense. 

 

You could find an attorney through naca to represent you, probably on contingency. It's illegal, and your wife can collect, if the plaintiff has violated FDCPA by filing a time-barred suit.

 

When defense attorneys in debt collection cases know that they have a sure win, they tend to be willing to take no money upfront. The penalty isn't high, just $1,000, of which they'll probably take some, and charge the other party for their costs. But would you rather have 60% of $1,000, and NOT do all the work, or pay all your filing fees, do all the work, and, at best, come out with a dismissal?

What do you guys think about a jury trial?

 

A friend told me to ask for it since it makes the process longer.

 

I'm thinking in the answer to state :

STANDING to SUE  (I don’t believe they have standing)

INJURY in FACT ( they bought debt for pennies and are sueing on 100 percent, how have they been injured 100 %)

FAILURE TO PROVE OF THE ALLEGED UNDERLYING CONTRACT

the debt buyer has not proven an unbroken chain of title therefore has no standing to sue.

find out about securitization

(did CACH actually spend 5300 to buy my debt if not why am I paying more than what it expended?)

 

thought?

It doesn't matter that they bought the debt for pennies on the dollar.  An assignee steps into the shoes of the creditor.   They can sue for the full amount.

Which underlying contract?  The contract between you and the OC?  Or the contract between the OC and the JDB?

 

I would not touch securitization.   The few courts that have dealt with the issue in regard to a credit card debt have ruled against the debtor.  It's not an easy fix.

 

You can pay more than has been expended because of the amount of the debt.  Again, the assignee steps into the shoes of the creditor.  

 

I'm going to be brutally honest for your sake and for the sake of others who read this thread.  You have an affidavit from the OC that references your name and account number.   It says that the account was sold to the JDB.  That goes pretty far to convince a judge that the JDB has standing to sue.

 

Do you have any evidence at all to dispute the plaintiff's claims?

This (bolded text) seems to be the CACH modus operandi these days.  These affidavits are probably robosigned, maybe even forged.  Find out everything you can about the affiant and the notary.

 

My strategy, when faced with this, was arbitration.  CACH won't touch JAMS with a 10-foot pole.

Yes, JAMS will send an arbitrator to hold a hearing in your local area.

 

You need to answer the complaint, including an affirmative defense that litigation is barred by an arbitration clause.  Then you need to file a motion to compel arbitration.  Then you can initiate in JAMS.
