Being Threatened with Legal Action.what to do?





Sub: Being Threatened with Legal Action.what to do?
Sat, 16/04/2005 13:48

A collection agency has bought my credit card debt. Now over the last 2 years it has been passed from one collection agency to another(all of which seem to be in connection with ONE lawyer. Its impossible to set up payments as when we call to do so we get paperwork back asking for our budget and what we can afford. Now that sounds great, BUT the minute we send it back they sent it to ANOTHER agency. Now the current agency wants more money then we can afford a month or they plan to take us to court. Any suggestion on what we can do would be helpful. They plan to garnish his wages, if they do so it will leave it in serious problems, as he has the only income and we have a 2 year old. Can they take our car is another concern, its by no means a new car. Its a 1994 Buick.

Thank you for your time...

Sub: #1 Hi src, As I said you earlier in another post, keep in touch Sat, 04/16/2005 - 13:48



Hi src,

As I said you earlier in another post, keep in touch with your bankers as they might do the favor as it is in your rights. Also, don't delay with your payments further as it will add some more interest charges.

Keep us informed of the latest
Thanks with regards
Roxette

Hi src,

Welcome to the debt consolidation care forum.

Unforunately I am being done the same. I am trying to get settlement amounts and as these are credit cards and medical bills can they take you to court for this?


Both the debts you have mentioned are under the category of unsecured debts. Keeping your financial conditions in mind, I would suggest you to go with a debt consolidation package. This will not only allow you to clear your debts within a reasonable period of time but also eliminate your late fees and other additional taxes.

Once you enroll with a debt consolidation company they take charge of handling your debts, and no one can drag you to court. Remember, now you are in professional hands.

Debt consolidation is the ideal way to clean your debt burdens in the present scenario.
To confirm on this regard view our article: http://www.debtconsolidationcare.com/benefits.html

8) No need to worry in this regard. You are protected by the law. According to the fdcpa no Debt Collection Company can threaten you either verbally or physically while collecting debts. Neither can they use abusive language or harass you in any way. However, it is your duty to clear the debt amount. For details on FDCPA you can check out this article in our site: http://www.debtconsolidationcare.com/fdcpa.html

I'm sure with the help of a debt consolidation program you will be able to
maintain the excellent credit record like you had for the past 34 years. :)

So cheer up :D and take the help of debt consolidation without delay.

Feel free to enquire on other debt related topics and also share your experience and insights with the other members of the forum.

Cheers,
Jason

Hi,

Welcome to the debt consolidation care forum.

I understand that you are passing through a trying time. My suggestion to you is to get in touch with the root person. Contact the Original creditor and express your wish to settle the debts you owe in affordable monthly installments.

Also mention the harassment you are facing with the frequent change-over of collection agencies. Your credit report is a proof, as it will reflect the change in Collection houses who are trying to collect your debt amount on behalf of the Original creditor.

You can also take suggestions from the Original creditor about the preferred Collection agency. Keep in mind your affordability limits every month, while fixing this deal.

Can they take our car is another concern


Don't worry. 8) They cannot take away your car as it is not categorized as an unsecured loan and also no collateral is mentioned either.

Feel free to come forward with more queries and hope you share your experience and interests with other members of the forum.

Last, but not the least thanks a lot jtucker for your kind appreciation. It is a pleasure to know that we were genuinely resourceful and we hope to serve you better in the coming days. :D

Cheers,
Jason

Sub: #7 First of all, how old is this debt? the SOL may have run out on Thu, 04/14/2005 - 13:42



First of all, how old is this debt? the SOL may have run out on it in your state.

Second, have them produce how they have come to the "total" figure of what you owe, this is called Validation of Debt (VOD), and sample letters on this site can help you draft that..

It is your Civil Rights by way of the fdcpa and FCRA to have this information made available to you.

Second :P join and become a official memeber of the forum..(not required for help tho), and learn just what your rights are, and have the wonderful memebrs to help you by what they have learned themselves, or the Admins know.

Since finding this site froma google search looking for guidelines/help, I persoanlly can not think I would have found a better link to click on that took me here.

NOTE: Not all will agree with me, nor am I a Lawyer offering adivce, just offering my Opinion.
