I guess she was more than girl friend/roommate because she ordered service & also would call to get the container (commercial construction dumpster portion of the bill) emptied. I believe her name was on some of the checks that paid for service as well. We also had sent them to collections two previous times in 2007 & 2008 which they paid before it was reported to the credit agency by collection company. The collection account person spoke to her & client said she had paid & would provide receipts or cancelled checks. Client did not provide cancelled checks or receipts to collection agency. This has been over 4 years ago. Hopefully my company will prevail at small claims court as we have not been paid outstanding $265.00 plus this new fee & time?
