    I got a letter today with a claim form to let me make a claim for my share of the settlement in Jeanie Cole, et al., v. Portfolio Recovery Associates, LLC, et al., from John Heenan Esq., Heenan Law Firm in Billings MT.

    As part of my claim it asks me to certify that in regards to my Providian account that the Defendant had a "/" as part of the purported affiants signature.

    I'm not sure about this; smells funny. How would I ever know if they had a "/" in their signature unless they and/or Providian would have actually mailed me some copy of a contract, which I assume they would never actually do?

    Any ideas? Anyone else get one of these?

    Is this some new scam that I've not heard of before?

    The settlement appears to be legitimate, based upon a few articles I just read. However, I had never heard of the case before you mentioned the name, and I can't say I'm entirely clear about what they're asking you to certify.

    Sorry I can't be of much help. Perhaps someone else will have more insight?
