Like every other new person here I have no clue where to start with this. I received a summons today (5/1/08) for a bad credit card debt ($3,556) from 2004 (October) from a law firm representing CACH, LLC. This after my calling them to try to make arrangements to pay the debt. I called and asked them to send me the information on the account and they said they would. After about a week or so of not receiving anything from them I called back to ask again for the information. They said they sent it but would do so again in case it got lost. I never received anything and decided to let it sit for a moment while attempted to pay off another bad credit card that was for more. I made the call to them back on 3/11/08 and now I see the papers were filed on 3/13/08. So basically they lied when they said they would send the information (I know that isn't relevant but I am needless to say angry that they are going this route when I obviously was contacting them to make good).
Prior to this I hadn't received anything from them which was basically because they didn't know where to locate me after my last address on file.
Basically after all that I just need to know what to do next? I live in California so if anyone knows what a next step should/could be I would appreciate the help. Also, they just left the summons stuck between the door knob and jam. Not handed to me personally. Thanks.
