I received a court summons filed last 12/11 and am supposed to respond in 30 days.
This is from a collection agency- a law firm that specialize on collection law as their website says.
I forgot about this debt which was supposedly from Ultra Jewelers which got assigned to GE Money Bank as shown on my credit report and original amount is almost $1700 for purchases on or about July 8, 2007. Original Creditor charged off and on August 26, 2009, this law firm got all the rights and title.
I talk to one of the law firm staff and wants to settle out of court by agreeing to pay $1,600 payable in 4 months.
I have been unemployed for more than 3 years and still looking for a job and SS is the only source of income for me and my husband to pay for our house and food. I was able to lower my house payment so we are barely living on our retirement income.
Can you please give me advice on what to do.
Thank you so much.
