In January, I received a small claims court notice from the state of CT telling me that I'm being sued by Midland funding LLC through another lawyer's office.
I've never heard of Midland Funding LLC nor the lawyer's office that worked with them. I responded to the summons stating that I had no knowledge of the debt, had no idea who Midland was, however if the debt was validated I would work out payment arrangements. (probably shouldn't have said that, but I did).
Instead I just received a State of CT Superior Court notice that I have a hearing in May.
What woudl you suggest I do at this point? Should I try to locate my original summons (which is around here somewhere), and contact the lawyer's office directly for Midland? Or should I contact Midland? If so, what number should I use? I haven't heard from Midland, received any notification or anything like that.

Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
