I have not filed a motion to vacate. The pretrial hearing is for a previous judgement in a different county. I was under the impression that everything was taken care of because I hadn't heard anything from anyone about this until recently. I sent in a denial of debt owed because I didn't know who the original debt was owed to and I wasn't about to just send money to someone I had no idea was asking for the money. I talked to the collection agency and they would not give me any information.
There was a bad check written and was sent back. A money order was then sent back to the company making sure they got the money. That was the last I heard about it.
