I have not lived at my parents house for 7 years at least, but on occasion they receive mail for me and put it in a basket. Every other month or so, whenever I have a chance to see my family, I'll check it out.
I open a letter from an attorney stating that the local county court had ruled in favor of them and filed a judgement against me for some old credit card debt. I ask my parents about this, and my mom tells me that a month or so ago someone came beating on the door at 9PM on a Sunday night when she was there alone and wouldnt go away so finally she had answered the door. They told me they were serving a summons for me and she told them the same thing, that I hadn't lived there for years. She said they made her take it anyways, but she didnt sign anything and told them that she doesnt see me on any kind of regular basis. Thanks Mom
Anyways, I dispute this debt, I have no idea where it came from, but now all of a sudden I have a 3000.00 judgement filed against me.
Is this legal? I was never served nor aware of this, and I was never given the chance to dispute it. And how can a judgement be passed without proving that I was served?
