Recommended Posts

Guest Ginger Bread Man

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.

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]

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

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

Right now I owe the back $400 dollars, they over credited my account so I grabbed the money and yeah. They just sent me a letter tellin me to pay it back blah blah...I've got a lil over 3 g's in cash right here, but don't plan on payin it back until I absolutely hafta

Crusty Mike is right.

 

 

If you dont show up they just assume you are guilty.

Make sure the letter is from a COURT and not from a creditor! If it isnt from a court then just ignore it. I used to owe over 10gs and creditors would send me "subpenas" claiming I had to pay or show up in court. Basicly its a scare tatic. if it isnt from an actual COURT you aint gotta stress it.

...my brother emails me last night talking about how i got served. i need to appear in court in september.

 

 

 

the thing is

your "brother" can not be served for you.

they have to, by law, hand the documents to YOU personally.

otherwise it goes like this ..."i never recieved anything ...yada yada"

this is how it works. sprint figures they'll never get their money, so they sell the account to a creditor for a really low rate (or something to that effect). now the creditior doesn't want to lose his money, so they will basically take anything you offer. say you're broke and can only afford $400 or whatever. lowball them. if they take the deal, make sure you receive a letter saying the account was settled in full and the thing is taken off your credit report.

ok well you could not show up for court clear out your bank accounts and put anything you own in someone elses name.

you could contact them and settle it out of court.

you could hire a lawyer.

i personally think you should show up in court, start punching sprints lawyers in the face whip out your dick piss on the judge and say death to american coporations.

and yeah ive been sued before i just showed up laughed at them told the judge i was never going to pay them more then a penny on the dollar and even then they would have to put me in jail to get it from the state.
