Ok, i'm getting sued by a legit law practice that buys old debts for pennies on the dollar and takes each person to court. sucks for me. The issue is I don't have any problem repaying this- I was in a bad place at the time, and now i'm in a better one- BUT $2k of the $4k bill is fees... the court date is scheduled for the 28th of this month (in a different jursidiction then where I live) and I would like to keep this out of court. I spoke to this attorney before about repaying but he demanded 3 payments of 1200 within 2 months or something- which is a bit steep. 400 a month- sure. but 1200 every 3 weeks? Not so much.
I'm wondering what I can do?
Should I talk to this attorney and try to reason with him? Should I go to court? I don't want to!!
Also, I've never requested validation from this gentlemen, but he sent me over his "validation" by sending a signed affadavit that this debt was his... is that enough? How is that proving anything?
UGH! This is scary and frustrating and i don't know what to do!
By signing up a debt counseling session, your provided details (Name, Email ID and Phone No.) will be forwarded to the company advertising on the DebtCC. However, you have no obligation to use their services.
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.
