i was looking over my credit report and saw that i had owed some money to a collection agency. i found out that was three previous medical bills that somehow never got reperted to the insurance companies. they're in 2007 2008 and 2009 and they won't give me the paperwork so i can talk with my insurance companies. needless to say the conversation with the debt collecter went bad and i'm willing to possibly pay a lawyer to help me resolve these matters. the longest one went to the collection agency legal department for a summons
