First you sue me, Now you dont want to go to court?
I lost my post so I am reposting \"SORRY\": ). A few months ago, I was served with a citation saying that I was being sued by a debt collection agency for an 8 yr old, unsercured, private student loan. I attempted to speak with the debt agency but they said, \"I have no job, no money, and that they can\'t help me, and will see me in court and that they suggest I get an attorney.\" Well, I decided to atleast respond to the court and so I filed a response to the citation and let the courts know the date of the loan, and that I had never paid on it in 8 years, and thaT I believe it was pass the Texas SOL, and that they probably were never supposed to sue me in the first place. Well, speed up to to this week,I recieved a letter from the debt collection agency saying that they have assigned a new lawyer and want to negotiate without setting a court date and that they want to avoid having to set a court date and appear in court, which is strange considering they sued me and before I responded to the court house they were adament about winning! I think they did not expect me to either respond to the citation, or they realize I have no money. I am not speaking to them because if they made me suffer this long then I will just appear in court if they decide to set a date. Also, I reported them to the District Attorney months ago for a possible violation against me because a guy from a law firm sent me a letter claiming to want to represent me in this case but it turned out he was the lawyers mentor/slash debt collection trainer and he said that I would never win against her because he trained her. I am now wondering if the District Attorney is hot on their trail and this is why they want to avoid court? I dont have a clue as to what is going on? Does any of this make sense to you? Why sue and refuse to negotiate but after I filed a response they want to negotiate outside of court? Any suggestions>? It makes no sense.
