Hello everyone, this is my first post...trying to figure out answer but need a little help:
A default judgment was entered on my CR for an old credit card debt.
A debt collector's rep. served my father at his home. I haven't lived there for years but that is apparently the last known address for me. The server asked if he was Robert H., which he is, but not the right one (we have different middle names).
So, they served the wrong person, but now I've got the judgment on my CR and he's now got a lien on his house.
I don't have a problem paying the debt, but my question is will the judgment remain on my CR after paying. Is there a way out of this since they didn't even serve the correct person. I'm not sure the best way to settle this in the interest of cleaning up my credit as well as removing the lien off his home.
I'm in California. Thanks for helping.
