Re: Will Capital One Sue me? [Help]
I am in a similar situation with Providian who had some CA buy the account and send it to an attorney.
I was sent a couple of letters from the attorney's office and foolishly ignored them as I had several collection offices over the past few years.
Needless to say, I received a summons and had to respond to the summons within 21 days or a judgement for the full amount would be filed against me. I am in Michigan so CA may be different.
What I should have done, and have done subsequently was send a validation letter to the company the attorney is representing. THe validation letter is located in the FAQ section.
I now may need to hire an attorney. I am not sure yet, I go Monday for a consultation. I'll let you know what happens.
FYI- my original amount owed was 1000.00 dollars but over the past couple of years, THEY CLAIM it is now about 2500.
