St Louis, MO asked in Civil Litigation and Collections for Missouri

Q: I was just contacted by a company that said their name was United Firm and that they were mediation company in St. Louis

They said that a company called cash net was going to sue me for breach of contract for a loan from April 12, 2012. And that I was going to be sent a summons to go to court. What is the statue limitations for something like this? Is this company a scam?

I checked casenet , there is nothing. And since I live in Illinois now, I checked their state site and nothing. This is the first I’ve heard about this. Thank you.

A: Either it is a scam or you have already been sued and United Firm saw the information on the public docket and therefore mailed you a letter. I wouldn't recommend dealing with any random mediation company at this point. An attorney would need to assess the situation, but the statute of limitations in Missouri for breach of a written contract is 10 years. The time period may have run.
