Do what any responsible person would do. Call the court and inquire. Better yet, pay your bills!
"Better yet, pay your bills!" Really? Where have you been for the past few years? **shakes head** am so sick of self righteous jerks, what happened to my Minnesota?
Respond promptly to a summons, admitting or denying the debt...
NOT! Don't admit the debt-the judge will find for the plaintiff immediatly! Don't deny it, as that could be perjury. Plead the Fifth Amendment. Don't incriminate yourself. Make your accusor prove their case.
More than likely, your debt collector does not have an agreement to pay, or an agreement to repay from you. This is why they will be willing to negotiate with you. If you don't admit to the debt, and they don't bring legal proof to court, no judge will find in their favor. If they do, file an appeal immediatly. Get and keep everything on paper.
Debtors have some rights even if they owe money...No s***! Google up "Fair Debt Collection Practices Act". This is the law the bill collectors don't want you to know about.
You don't necessarily have to go to court, but you do have to respond to a summons. If you don't, it's your fault. Do everything on paper by filing motions in court.
I beat a zombie bill collector out of well over $7000 in court so I know what I'm talking about. I also used to work for a couple of debt management companies. My book is in the works.
Liberal and Conservative voters who wanted change back from their paychecks. No money, no job means you cannot pay your bills. Of course, you could open a debt collection agency.
I bet the Indians said the same thing about Minnisota.
I requested original statements from Lowe's to find out what I actually owe over 6 weeks ago after being served notice from a St.Paul attorneys office. In the mean time I received by mail a Notice of Entry and Docketing of Judgement from Stearns County on a Default Judgement. What do I do now?
Sorry about the delay...
I'd contact an attorney and get some advice on legal procedures in your state (I'm assuming it's Minnesota). Explain what happened and ask what can be done.
