jose c Posted January 6, 2019 Report Share Posted January 6, 2019 (edited) Happy New Year. Dec 31st I was serve,some guy left with my wife a bunch of papers stating I am being sued by Midland Funding LLC. I have read some of the post in these forum,and I will appreciate all the help I can get.I will start by answering your questioner. 1. Who is the named plaintiff in the suit? Midland Funding LLC 2.What is the name of the law firm handling the suit? Jack H Pogosian/Jonathan Kom/Kristy Gabrielova/Nichol Alan de Guzman/Hyo Jin Julia Jung/Meline Grigoryan.Midland Funding LLC 3. How much are you being sued for? $2261.80 4. Who is the original creditor? Capital One,N.A.. 5. How do you know you are being sued? I was serve a summon from Norwalk Court. 6. How were you served? Some guy left with my wife a bunch of papers stating I am being sued by Midland Funding LLC The papers did not come in a sealed envelope but rather a paper packet. 7. Was the service legal as required by your state? Yes. However, it did not come in a sealed envelope but rather a paper packet. 8. What was your correspondence (if any) with the people suing you before you think you were being sued? I only receive collection letters. 9. What state and county do you live in? California.Los Angeles. 10. When is the last time you paid on this account? (looking to establish if you are outside of the statute of limitations) No payments made.I originally made the payments online at buypower.com but then they closed the website so I was not able to pay soon after I started to receive collections letters. 11. When did you open the account September 30,2015. 12. What is the SOL on the debt? Time has not expired on the debt for written, open-ended accounts but I did for the oral 13. What is the status of your case? Suit served? Motions filed? Suit served. 14. Have you disputed the debt with the credit bureaus (both the original creditor and the collection agency?) No I have not. 15. Did you request debt validation before the suit was filed? Note: if you haven't sent a debt validation request before being sued, it likely won't help create FDCPA violations, but disputing after being sued could be useful to show the court that you dispute the debt ('account stated' vs. 'breach of contract'). No I have not. Should I do this now after having received my served/summon packet on 12/31/18? 16. How long do you have to respond to the suit? (This should be in your paperwork). If you don't respond to the lawsuit notice you will lose automatically. In 99% of the cases, they will require you to answer the summons, and each point they are claiming. We need to know what the "charges" are. Please post what they are claiming. Did you receive an interrogatory (questionnaire) regarding the lawsuit? According to the summon I have 30 calendar days to write a written legal form response. 17. What evidence did they send with the summons? An affidavit? Statements from the OC? Contract? List anything else they attached as exhibits. Bill of sell,affidavit of sale of account by creditor,certificate of conformity,electronic records provided by Capital one,Midland credit management bill January 26 2018,Capital One bill from July 20 2017,from Nov 23 2017.Notice of Legal Placement November 19 2018,civil case cover sheet Dec 132018.Civil case cover addendum and statement of location.Declaration re: reduction in filing fee,Notice of case assignment-limited civil case DEC 13 2018.order to show cause hearing/trial date DEC 13 2018,and certificate of mailing DEC 13 2018. 18.
