I live in NJ had a business in Ga. HAd to close because no money to continue it. I had a vendor fronting me product for 3 years good with all my paybacks, unfortunately I left owing them 13,000.00 They settled with me for 6,000 but I only had 3 weeks to pay in full couldn't do it I had no money. They sent me to collections the fella told them I had assets after I told him I had none The then got a NJ lawyer who called me in March I told him I owed the money can they bring it to 6,000 and give me a payment plan, I never heard back and now I recieved notice they are suing me in Monmonth County.I called Plaintiff lawyer this morning, he was very rude and I offered a 5,000 settle that I would borrow money from family he said I don't thin they will accept that. What can I do I don't want this on my credit report
since I'm seeking employment and how far can this go. I'm not denying that I owed I just have no means of paying. Been unemployed, have a high mortgage payment husband only gets Social security I'm also getting SS,but I can't make ends meet.

JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?
Customer: I have til August 5th to answer the claim, if I disagree with the claim. I don't disagree but they were very unfair from the beginning since Oct in giving me time or a payment plan, I have not heard from them since March.I actually though or assumed they were forgiving the debt since I had no means. Now they want 15,000.00 interest and legal fees.I offered back then to pay them 100.00 per month they said NO.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.
