Customer Question
I have a company...

I have a company call OMNI Mediation's demanding money for a ill that was supposedly settled. They are threatening court actions and coming to my job to serve papers. Is this company legit?

Lawyer's Assistant: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Maryland

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

No, I settled with another company in 2011, and now out of the blue this company is calling for more money

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I wrote a check in 2010 for a down payment on a car for 7500.00, but only had 5000.00 and car dealership would not accept it and considered it a bounced check. In 2011 another company said the debt would be settled if I paid over 3000.00, which I did in three payments. Now this company is threatening legal action. I paid 600.00 from a credit card on Saturday and today they want me to send a prepaid credit card for 322,.00 to settle a bill of 4200.00

Thank you for using JustAnswer.

I'm sorry to hear about your situation. To be clear, nothing was paid by you since 2011 (whether or not it was settled?)

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
