im being sued by sprint for 1600 buckos

Discussion in 'Channel Zero' started by Ginger Bread Man, May 16, 2006.

  1. heres the story. years ago 2002ish i took out a sprint fone. long story short i was paying with random peoples accounts on some real fraud shit. after about a year and a half sprint found out and revoked some of my payments. this in turn skyrockets my fone bill 1600 buckos. i was always planning on paying it but never got around to it. my brother emails me last night talking about how i got served. i need to appear in court in september.

    a few questions.
    ever been sued by a creditor?
    im in a different country now. any way to settle this shit without having to show up to court?...

    Different country?
    Is it far away from where you lived? Because if so, I say fuck'em.

    Though I'm not known for giving out the best legal advice.

    You can probably just pay it and avoid court? Maybe even get it down a little bit...

    I think in cases like this, if you dont show up, they automatically rule in favor of sprint and you owe them money just like you did before. If you own property or something they might be able to put a lien on your property making it impossible to sell in the future until you pay them off. [/i think]
  9. crusty mike you are totally correct. by default the verdict swings their way, if they dont show up to court i win. they will totally freeze assets and take money from your paycheck and shit like this but i totally want to avoid all this shit

    you could probably get a lawyer to deal with it for you.

    though it may be cheaper just to pay it prior to the court date. it sounds like your going to have to shell out money either way.

    I dunno. Can you contact them and tell them you want to settle out of court? They will probably want a check cut on the spot though.

    if you blow it off
    the creditors win automatically.

    i had a similar situatiuon with AT&T and kept avoiding them
    but i was able to prove that the bill was not my responsibility
    and this took some work.
    in the interim, the creditors attempted to get me to settle for 50% of the bill, which i refused.\
    if you cantact them with an offer like that, they might go for it.

    i know two people who have been sued by creditors and lost
    both people had their wages garnished
    which is the situation you'll be in if you lose the case and you ever earn money in the u.s. again

    so suck it up and pay up.

    I thought i had pulled one over on the feds by creatively altering #'s on my tax returns for the last three years but they were onto me and basically took $630 out of my $700 tax return this year to get their money back.

    Seriously, you're not as anonymous as you think in the eyes of big business
