Can someone tell me what a civil collection is? I was reading our local county newspaper and saw my name under civil collections with Credigy Receivable Inc. The problem is I have no idea who they are and what they are collecting for. Any informaton would be appreciated. Thanks!

There are supposed to try, at least. Often, it seems, debt collectors are either unwilling or unable to do the legwork. Still, if you don't answer a lawsuit, things much worse than a phone call from a debt collector will follow. It's better to be sure.

BEFORE YOU SEND ME A PM: Unfortunately, I don't know anything about dealing with debt collectors, payday lenders, consolidating debts, and that sort of thing. I sue debt collectors for violations of the FDCPA, and I defend consumers sued by debt collectors.

It could be that you are being served with a lawsuit by publication. Definitely check with the courthouse. If there is a lawsuit against you, you need to take care of that. Here is some information for when you are being sued that I recently posted to my blog.

I don't have any information on where to contact them. Seeing it in the newspaper was the first that I heard about it. Would the court house give me any information?

Send a debt validation letter because you have the legal rights to know about the debt they are collecting for.

One can insert your name anywhere but it must have a legitimate purpose. Use your legal rights and get the debt validated by Credigy.
