The debt is mine and I just received a copy of the default judgement in the mail last Friday 10/11/2013.
I never received or signed a summons as I no longer live in Massachusetts.
I currently live in Utah and do not know if it has been domesticated.
I do not know what that term means either.
The copy of the judgement came from the District Court of Massachusetts, Somerville, MA
It was sent by the court to my old address in MA, and then forwarded by the USPS to my current address in Utah.
Amount = 10482.32
Date of breach = 08/26/2013
Date Judgement entered = 10/08/2013
The property I lived in was a rental property that I know for a fact was rented out to another person after I moved out.
I highly doubt anyone there would accept service for someone they did not know.
