My question involves collection proceedings in the State of: Tennessee
What happened here is this friend dead husband had a credit card and it wasn't paid before his death and his wife throught if her husband died then she wouldn't have to pay the debt which you know the credit card company just passes it to the other spouse. The credit card company couldn't find this friend to tell her about the debt because she moved from Michigan to Tennessee and bought another house. The credit company finally found her and put a lien on her new house. The credit card debt is 5000.00 plus 10% for every year it's not paid which is 7 years now. I found out this is not a Credit card company but a debt collection firm. And found out they went out of out of business. Can this friend get this lawyer that worked for the collection firm to drop some of the cost or is this a done deal?
