Legal Answers
113 Questions Answered
Q. Should I deny the complaints in the summons and complaint I received for an old debt even if I know the debt was mine?
A: You just posted on line that "the debt is mine". Be careful now denying to the court that the debt is yours. Depending on the amount of money the debt collector is suing you for, you should consider hiring a lawyer. There are legal defenses available to you that you may be unaware of. If you decide to handle it yourself, I suggest trying to negotiate a one-time lump sum to resolve the entire debt. Older debts can often be resolved for much less than the full balance.
Q. Recovery of items resulting from a repossession.
A: I suggest small claims court. It is inexpensive and quick. But you are going to have to have proof, (perhaps other witnesses), of the items that were in your vehicle. And values. For example the golf equipment, I suggest you provide the original receipts and then printouts of the same equipment being sold used.
Q. What can i do if my former apartment forwards a false debt to a collection company?
A: I suggest you first send a certified letter, both to the apartment and to the debt collector. The letter should clearly deny the alleged debt and explain in detail why you don't owe the debt. Importantly, the letter should also request how they calculated the $1,700 and what clause in the lease permits them to charge this fee. Finally, the letter should also direct the debt collector to "cease and desist" and refrain from contacting you or attempting to collect this bogus debt. If this account is on your credit report, you should also demand it be deleted. If the letter does not resolve this matter, you should contact a lawyer to consider your legal options.
