Received court summons for credit card debt: Help!!!
Fri, 08/15/2008 01:02
So I have recently received a summons to court regarding a credit card debt that I have. Basically it tells me that a 3rd party is suing me for the balance that I have not paid. My options are to contact a lawyer to pursue the case, write a letter stating why I feel I shouldnt have to pay the debt. If I do nothing the judge will assume that I feel I owe the debt, and I will have to pay it included the plaintiffs court and lawyer fees. The question is this, I feel like either way Im going to be paying this off some how or way. So does it make since to accumulate more fees by filing this letter, hiring a lawyer? Or should I just wait until they send the next statement to pay for this debt? Still doing research on the statue of limitation, and if I fall under that category :?
