A: That company is a debt buyer. It likely purchased the right to sue you by paying pennies on the dollar on the debt. Contact a local consumer attorney. Any Missouri attorney can log on to casenet and review the documents filed in the case. You might have a good defense to the suit or you might be able to negotiate a settlement. If you simply ignore the lawsuit, a default judgment will be entered against you and it may be for a greater sum that what you believe you owe, assuming you owe something. I hope this answer points you in the right direction.
