Just got served on a Saturday here at home from a company called Tri-Cap Investment Partners, LLC. It seems like they purchased all of our credit cards (Bank One, Chase, JC Penney, etc) and want us to pay. We filed for bankruptcy in 2005 and it was dismissed 6 months later because we made too much money at the time. After that, we neglected to pay our bills because my husband lost his job, I was out of work for a couple of months because of sickness and tried to pay the important bills (mortgage, utilities, cars) with the money we were receiving. We have 30 days to respond to this summons. What should we do about it? Are they or can they garnish our wages? We are really worried about this. Any suggestions are welcomed. Thanks.

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.
