I had a debt...

I had a debt that was with one credit company. that debt can no longer be reported in 2 months, however I got a bill showing that that debt was sold to someone call castle credit. I never signed any documents for it, and know if I send a payment it will restart the clock

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

I live in Texas, but think the original debt was in california

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?

I have been trying to get the deliquencies removed I have talked to the debtor, but never admitted I owed them, since they werent the original debtor

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

Ahh, also I never signed any documents for a castle credit, and never spoke to anyone, so not sure how they can be sending me a bill in an attempt to restart the clock.

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.
