I had a vehicle repossessed back in 2008 that belonged to my daughter with my signature as a co-signer. It has been 8 years since the car was returned to the bank, or repossessed. (I am not sure which as I have not had contact with my daughter about this issue). I am now receiving calls from a collection agency stating that they want me to pay a huge balance. I am now at the point that I am not excepting their calls but am worried that they will rein my credit that I have worked hard to rebuild since 2008. What are might rights and how long after a vehicle has been turned in, can they come back on me for the balance they came up with?

A hospital didn't submit my wife's emergency room bill to

A hospital didn't submit my wife's emergency room bill to TRICARE (our insurance company) and didn't send us a bill. We received a notice from the a collection agency. We called the hospitals billing department which they corrected and submitted to TRICARE and TRICARE paid. In the meantime the collection agency was still calling. We called the hospital, they said they would take care if it. Now we are receiving phone calls from a Lawyer's office working for the collection agency saying WE owe $80.00 to them or they are going to put the collection on my wife's credit report. My question is how is that legal to threaten us for someone else's mistake. We cannot control who puts something in collection and/or how they correct the issue?JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Chesapeake, Virginia.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: No, not sure if they are just trying to get something out of us vice going to the Chesapeake General(the hospital that made the mistake)?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No ma'am, my wife is very upset because we pay all of our bills and take pride in our accomplishments and she doesn't want anything on her credit report that she cannot control.

Approx. 15-20 yrs ago my husband was a truck driver & bitten

Approx. 15-20 yrs ago my husband was a truck driver & bitten on his big toe by a spider in Mexico. We lived in Mesquite, Tx & when he got home his toe was swollen & hurting horribly. We took him to a local emergency rm. & after waiting 2-3 hrs. was told he had a skin disorder. We argued, but they wouldn't budge. We went on Monday to our reg. Dr. who said it was definitely a spider bite & treated accordingly. We were angry & refused to pay the bill (a little over a hundred dollars). My husband has since passed away & this week I have received 2 calls from debt collectors (which I did not answer) but did try to return calls but mailbox was full. They threatened to put a judgement against me. After all this time can they, and for such a small amount, would they. At this point it is not the money, but I am afraid any action will put this very old item on my credit report.JA: What state is this in? And how old is the truck?Customer: Texas ... the truck has nothing to do with this question ... just stating why he was in Mexico.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Not to my knowledge. I have received nothing in writing.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No
