Questions regarding "Law Firm" filing Suit
To anyone who can help....
I defaulted on a CC (Cap1) approx 2yrs ago due to financial situations ( I have cancer, my mother had broken her neck, etc)...I got a letter from [url=http://www.debtconsolidationcare.com/collection-agencies/answering-machi... recovery systems[/url] back in July 2008 regarding this debt. I within 2 days, sent a debt validation letter. Never heard another word.
Last week, my friend was snooping around Okla Supreme Court Network (OSCN) and found that a lawsuit was filed against me on Nov. 13th, 2008 by "law firm" Love, Beal & Nixon in Okla City. It states that it will be served by private process server. I have never received any letters from them, no phone calls asking about the debt...nothing. I still haven't been served.
Would it be in my best interest to go to the court house, as for all copies of what was filed, answer it before I am served?? i noticed another lady did this before she was served (by the same firm, filed the same day as mine) from my research, they filed approx 10+ suits that same day , and on average it's taking 2-3 months to be served.
Also, can I then write the Firm asking to validate the debt, send a copy to the court (EVERYTHING Certified to everyone Of course)? After that, I need to file a motion for discovery?? How soon can I do this?
I would appreciate any help on this. I'm going to fight this, I never signed anything with this Firm and they have given me no services, loaned me anything...etc.
Thank you friends....
