I was sued by Pressler and Pressler with a company called New Century Financial. The first I heard from these people was January when I received a summons. There was no clarification as to what this debt was and I simply responded to the courts stating I have no idea of this debt and that these people needed to provide more proof. I sent the filing fee to have this filed with the court file and a copy of the verification letter I was sending to Pressler and Pressler. Pressler and Pressler replied stating my validation perdiod was passed becuase they contacted me last year. They said they sent a letter. I never received a letter. They also said none of the requested material was in the possession. They did send a photo copy of a bill of sale that looked like my daughter typed it and signed it, stating they had bought another collection agencies accounts. It didnt' list my account specifically. I have still never heard who the original creditor was, they wont answer my questions. They then send me interrogatories and say I must answer them, I responded saying I have no proof I owe you anything I refuse to send you this information, its very personal information. They then filed with the court a statement saying they request that this be ruled on without a court date stating they have enough proof and I didn't deny the debt I only asked for information regarding it. I need help, what should I do. Oh and by the way, neither them nor I have heard back from teh courts as to a court date or a response to my letter, nothing. Please help, Im very confused!

Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the pay off 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.
