My question involves collection proceedings in the State of: California
I had a collection agency sue me for a debt that I deny owing. I filed my paperwork and showed up in court. They however, did not show up. The case was dismissed w/o prejudice. They (after a phone conversation) are still claiming that I owe them the money and deny ever taking me to court. I told them that it was dismissed in court and it was apparently, news to them. I have the papers right here in front of me
Anyhow, my questions would be;
1. How long do they have to re-file another case? (way under $5000 BTW)
2. Do I have any legal recourse?
3. How do I get them off of my credit report?
Thanks in advance.
