A: Dear consumer,

It's unclear what your question is here. If the debt is paid off, there should be no further action. Regardless, there should only be one court case based on a single debt.

It sounds like you should contact a legal services organization or clinic or a private consumer attorney who handles debt collection defense or Fair Debt Collection Act cases.

Best regards,
