Sued by PRA in Tx - Collin County

Recommended Posts

Hello All:

Wondering if anyone can help - we are in Collin County, TX and are being sued by Portfolio Recovery - they have been trying to collect on a Sears account that was issued by Citicards.  We found out about the lawsuit because we received quite a lot of solicitations in the mail from attorneys once PRA filed the suit.  The suit is filed in a JP court.  Today we got a notice on our door that someone tried to serve us with the suit.  My question is - do we just call the number and accept the service or do we try to dodge it?  I have spent a lot of time searching through the civil public records and a great many of these PRA lawsuits are thrown out due to Non-suit.  We have requested validation on this particular debt several times and our requests (all sent CMRRR) all went unanswered to our knowledge.  Do we just bite the bullet and accept the documents so that we can start the process of getting it over with?  Is there any benefit to dodging the service?

This is the only time we have been sued...by anyone.  Just looking for help in this process - this will just be the beginning surely.

Thanks to anyone who can offer advice.
