a collection agency representing the state called Pioneer Credit Recovery filed a judgement in the superior court of NJ for 1903.15....I don't owed that amount because I had sent two checks already. The state sends me their own letter stating the different options to settle my account even payment plans. It looks like the collection agency does not communicate with the state and the judgement was filed 7/15 and is already on my credit report making it worst then it already is.
No....I have lived at the same place for 18 years. What I don't understand how can a judgment be filed if I'm sending payments to the state directly not the agency. The amount filed is wrong. Is it legal?
what he sent me was a letter informing me that the judgment had been filed. I'm going to fight this because now the judgment would not be able to be release from my credit report in at least 7 years - right?
Thanks so much for your help.......
