Hi, I received a letter from a credit Service company about a lawsuit that was filed against me. I have not received a summons. I do not know who the creditor is. On the court history, it says a hearing as been set up in July to show why Proof of Service was not done?
Thank you for the post, what question can I answer for you regarding the credit service company issue?

I am not sure what to do? I have attached what is on the court website. Do I not need to be notified if someone is suing me?

Hello, you should contact the court clerk to get a copy of the proof of service. It may be that the plaintiff has represented to the court that you were served when you were not.

What is the hearing for in July? Can a case go foward if i have not been served?
Hello, the hearing is apparently for you to explain why you have not complied with a judgment that has entered against you, but without speaking with the court clerk one cannot be sure what the purpose of the hearing is.
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
I have not received any judgement against me. Can just answer provide me with a list of legal service providers in Southern CA?
Hello, do you mean services such as pro bono legal service providers or attorneys to be retained for a fee?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Not using the legal world for services often, I not sure of what a pro bono legal service provider is?
Hello, pro bono means for free.
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
A combination would be nice. I presume you would get what you pay for in legal services.
That presumption is often correct, but a combination of two does not exist (unless you mean low cost legal assistance, in which case your presumption again holds true).
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
OK, Lets go with a real attorney that handles this type of claim.
