Well, you may not be able to beat it.  

You can try to have the case dismissed without prejudice for improper service.  Make sure service to a minor violates Illinois law.  Maybe that will work, maybe not.  

Even if it does work, they can refile.  Look at their documentation carefully.  Be prepared to challenge the bill of sale.  Again, they may or may not work.  

In any case, you will most likely lose the case, either now or later.  You need to consider if you can make a settlement offer.  Depending on how much this debt is, you may or may not want to consider bankruptcy.
