Ok, so I got a summons a month ago regarding an account that I supposedly had in... 1999? Anyhow, supposedly they sent me a thing stating that if I did not respond to it (back in 2000) that I assumed responsibility for the debt. 1) Why would I NOT answer and take responsibility for something that they have no information about? 2) I was 20 at the time... I think I remember writing the lawyer back, and not the court (mistake #1) and I didn't send it certified mail (mistake #2). So, of course the sleazy lawyer is saying that he never got anything. MEANWHILE, I have not heard from this guy in 6 years. Then he sent me that summons a month ago, and I responded correctly this time. He responded with a court date (supposed to be Friday) and saying that since I supposedly didn't answer 6 years ago that he doesn't have to prove it is my debt. What the FUCK ever. Ok, I think I mentioned this part before. RIGHT after I got the thing a month ago, I got ANOTHER letter from ANOTHER state and ANOTHER lawyer about the SAME account. Okie... so now I have dickhead lawyer and random lawyer trying to get money from me. NEITHER CAN PROVE IT IS MINE. So, I am going to go to the court building tomorrow and tell them I need to change the court date. I am still talking to free consumer advocate type people on the internet figuring out what I can do. Now, the thing that is the MOST bullshit of all. The "plaintiff" has been OUT OF BUSINESS since 2003. How do you collect money for someone who is NOT in business? My favorite was a line in an email that "if I settle with the original company, let the court know so that they can cancel the court date." I wrote back and asked HOW exactly you settle with a company that has been out of business for 3 years? I want this to just be done with. I want to walk in there say "I need to postpone the date because I am still talking to counsel, I am trying to figure out *which* lawyer to work with, and THE FUCKING COMPANY IS OUT OF BUSINESS. Such fraud. I have to waste my fucking time tomorrow going 30 minutes away from here to post pone my court date (unless I am lucky and can get them on the phone... which was IMPOSSIBLE today. I sat and listening to ringing for 10 minutes straight a couple times). Why? Why does all this bull shit keep happening to me? I need to leave the country and never look back. Maybe change my name and run away. My life fucking sucks.
