My question involves collection proceedings in the State of: New Jersey
I hope this isn't a joke of a question. Here goes:
I know two people who used to date, call them D and K. D has an oral surgeon for a father. Roughly ten months ago D's father performed two operations for K. No bills were sent. Two weeks ago, K and D had a nasty breakup. Now D's father is harassing K with fees over $2000. Now, from context, it seems obvious to me that it was agreed 10 months ago that these operations would be on the house for a friend of the family and that the billing and threats of legal action are vengeance for K breaking up with D. My question is this: is there any legal way for K to protect themselves from this harassment or is the justice system letting one slip through the cracks?
I apologize in advance for wasting your time if this question has a very obvious answer.
