Thank you for using JA. I am Loren, a licensed attorney for over 30 yrs., and I am here to help.

I am a certified expert on JustAnswer since 2009, with nearly 100% in satisfied customer ratings. So, we should be able to work through your problem.

I appreciate your patience as I review your question. I will post my response shortly.

This is general information and no attorney client relationship is established.

The site may ask you if you wish to speak by phone for an extra charge. Many find the phone call to be the easiest and fastest way to get the information they need without posting on a public forum. I am also happy to continue online.

There may be a slight delay in my replies as I am assisting other JA customers also. I will reply to your follow up questions.

From whom was this received? How was it presented?

What do they want from you?

Do you recognize the claim?

Ask Your Own Legal Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
It's from Midland Funding LLC. It came in the mail. They just want me to appear at the address listed on the envelope which there is no address on the envelope, it's on the claim. I do recognize company.

Is there a lawsuit in the documents you received?

How did you receive it? Was there a process server?

Ask Your Own Legal Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
It says a "lawsuit has been filed against you claiming that you owe money for an unpaid consumer debt". It came in the mail. I do not believe there was a process server.

Have you called the courthouse to see if the clerk of the court has a record of the lawsuit in their records?

Ask Your Own Legal Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
The court is closed and will open Monday Morning.

Does it contain any instructions?

Did it include a copy of a lawsuit?

Ask Your Own Legal Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
It says to report to the address listed and answer yes. There is no copy of the lawsuit.

It does not sound like this is a summons and lawsuit.

On Monday, call the clerk to confirm that no suit is pending and that will confirm it.

If (and only if) you are completely satisfied that your question is answered professionally and accurately, even if not the answer you were hoping to get, please remember to leave a favorable rating (click 5 stars in the rating section on this page). It is the only way that I am credited by JustAnswer for answering your question.

There is no additional charge to you for rating me favorably.

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.

I received a phone call at 2AM from a restricted number and
I received a phone call at 2AM from a restricted number and they left a voicemail. The transcript of the voicemail said "Hi, I'm calling here for a Ms. Aguilar (my last name). I'm calling to inform you that you are late for your court date. Please call your supervisor, this is overdue and you will be fined for missing your court date. Please call us back at your number provided in the mail from our offices, thank you." However, I never received any letter or a ticket to my knowledge. I couldn't sleep and checked my name online to see if I was in a criminal or a small claims case without my knowledge but my name didn't come up. The only thing I could think of is I got into an accident in November but that's been getting handled through insurance and, again to my knowledge, nothing involving the courts. Is it possible this is some sort of prank or could it be due to the accident? The person didn't identify themselves, who they represented, and the time they called me seemed very strange to me. I plan to check in the courthouse tomorrow to see if my name brings anything up but in the meanwhile wanted to ask what an expert thinks. … read more
