Customer Question
Second opinion] I requested...

Second opinion] I requested a company do a diagnostic test on my well pump in 2015 . I never received a bill from the company for them coming out , and was just contacted by a collections agency to collect a bill. I called the company and it turns out he sent it via email but to the wrong email . Never called or mailed a bill. He admits it was his fault but is now out of his hands . He says to “ make any offer” to the collections company and he’ll accept. My question is now should i even pay collections because it was his fault?

Lawyer's Assistant: What state is this in? And when did the issue begin?

Massachusetts . Was informed about two weeks ago

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you contacted the manufacturer?

Yes, the well company was contacted and admits he sent the bill to the wrong address in 2015

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

No thank you

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

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.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
