This information is a summary of the case information on record with the court. When you say "What does this mean" are you referring to any part in specific or are you asking about the entire document? I look forward to hearing back from you. -ZDN
I am aware it is a case regarding a charged off account, but beyond that, I do not understand the information on this. I only came across this after finding the information from my Equifax account. Then searched in Cook County for any information regarding the alert saying there was a suit filed.
It stated in Equifax it was a suit from Merrick Bank, a credit card that was not paid and charged off. I no longer live in Chicago and now living in Florida for the past two years. I had no knowledge of this suit until I saw the alert from Equifax.
