Hi! I've been sued by a collection agency with a law firm attched to it. I answered the Summon and now they sent me an admission (dated May 26) and didn't received this documents after 5 days, it says I have 30 days to respond. Also, attached to it is request for production of documents and interrogatories, date 7/06/10. I am a little confused about the dates and of course how to respond. Please help!!!

If the court doesn't know about it, then this letter is just a way to try to scare you. The summons and complaint are issued by the court, not by an attorney's office.
This seems to be a good suggestion. Sometimes the letters that are sent by an attorney do not have a case number on them. They are just what Seans says "scare tactics"...possibly the statute of limitations is applicable at this point. This is just my take on the situation...I don't have a legal background

I agree with this 100%.

I know that when I have an issue with a company, I write a letter and send a copy to my attorney. Now, that doesn't mean I've retained the lawyer for this purpose at all. But seeing that cc: at the bottom of the page can scare the crap out of a company and help me get what I want.

Sounds to me like they are trying a similar tactic on you.

danabcb send me an email to tlcpetmommy@gmail.com; and I can probably help you!!! I have guides etc. I can help you with.

Did you file an Answer to the complaint? If not, we may want to consider that as a step. Validation of the debt consists of nothing more, than Who the Orig. Creditor Was, a date, and the amount. That is it, unless a judgment has been brought against you.

I’m not an Attorney, I’ve not had any formal Legal training. Everything I say/do is what I have learned through my own experiences, of fighting 2 lawsuits against us, on my own; and through research and extensive studying, of the Consumer Protection laws. I cannot legally advise you, but I can tell you what I’ve done, and/or what I would do if it were me in a given situation.

Displaced, tell them to stop calling you. They must and if not write it down everytime. It is the LAW that they must stop callng you once you tell them to. They sound like rookies. They shouldn't need anything from you and it sounds like harrasment.

Boy, isn't that obvious.

Just a heads up here that anyone reading this should definitely NOT send this person any information. Not only has her opinion on debt validation been struck down by caselaw and the FTC, it's the same opinion espoused by the collection industry. It's my opinion that this person is here trying to mine for information to use against consumers asking for help, which is not uncommon.

Oh, I just discovered this thread. Cool! This is gonna be fun. What going on here? Anyone want help?

I am an attorney, licensed in Ohio, 31 year of practice, familiar with all aspects of consumer credit, collections and civil litigation. I will not render specific legal advice and will not entertain any request for the engagement of legal services to a specific individual or on a specific legal matter. But I know all of the answers to all collection and civil litigation questions.
