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

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? 14 Days

Any suggestions on how to proceed?

You are being sued by the original creditor for a lot of money.  The defenses you read about on sites like this are based on being sued by a junk debt buyer not the OC.  The only defenses to a suit by an OC are identity theft or the SOL being expired neither of which apply to your situation.

Your options are to settle, file bankruptcy or live unbanked for a long time.  Texas is very debtor friendly they cannot garnish your wages or seize property but a judgment will garner interest each year and balloon in amount owed.  Your best option is to settle if you don't have a lot of other debt looming.
