Debt collectors don't put liens on anything, as they do not own the debt or the account. Generally, when a car payment is not made, the lender repossesses the car and then retains a debt collector to collect on the loan.
The case seems to be a default on a property owned by someone possibly attach to her we are unsure on what the complaint in the case is but they have her marked as a judgment creditor in the concerned parties information.

An Ohio attorney could advise best, but it looks like your question was overlooked under the general Uncategorized heading. You could try reposting under Collections, Foreclosure, Bankruptcy, and Civil Litigation. This looks like something for attorneys who practice in one of those areas. Good luck
I got the drone back, said he may have to charge me because his crew may charge him, I may not be properly licensed but was not near any controlled air space.

An Ohio attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. Until you're able to discuss with a local attorney, nationwide such a situation would usually be on the drone operator.

This sounds like one big scam. There was never any money, you were never going to get anything from the "European Council", whatever that is.

Nobody can help you without reading the pleadings and examining the file. Maybe you can buy 30 minutes of an attorney's time before the pre-trial.
I have been paying for the units for over a year but they are not in my name nor did i sign any rental agreement i just took over payments. I have full access to the account. Will it hurt my credit or go to collections for me if i just stop paying for them

If you're not a party to the contract with the storage unit company, then I don't believe you can be held liable under any of its terms.
Our basement flooded and we received an estimate for work. We signed the estimate and we’re told it was “no problem” if we changed our mind. We told the company we were getting other estimates and to stop all work. They did an hour of work. We received other estimates that were 75% LESS than... Read more »

Can a debt collection agency sue if they don't have my friend SSN and the report doesn't appear on her credit report. i told her to ignore it I think its a scheme tactic but she is worried?
answered on Jul 7, 2021
The question is a bit vague, but generally speaking, the debt collector (or the party owed the debt) can file a lawsuit if they have proof that the debt is valid, outstanding, and binding on your friend. They don't need a SSN to file the suit and the debt does not have to appear on the credit... Read more »

A few things here. First, was the original service (which I assume you requested) warranted to pass the inspection, or should they have known that was what you needed, if you answer yes to either then the company breached its warranty to you in the initial service. The second service should not... Read more »

I had to cancel my debit card associated to the account bc of unrelated fraud. I figured that would cancel my subscription. It did not they auto renewed for a year. Since it didn't get paid they forwarded it to collections.
answered on Jun 7, 2021
Not by admitting you owe the money, which is what it appears you've done. Canceling a debt card does nothing to impair contractual obligations just because the card was given as payment. I would suggest sending the debt collectors a letter asking for proof of the debt. The FDCPA requires them... Read more »
They say it is from a payday loan but they won't tell me the name of the company. I did owe a couple of companies but I am sure I paid them off.

There are so many scams out there concerning these "payday" loans. Tell them to only contact you in writing and demand proof of the debt. I bet you never hear from them.
I got a call that said if I don’t call back that they would be obligated to take the case to court and advised find my location.

An Ohio attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. It could depend on your capacity and role in the matter. If you are insured by a carrier, you may want to consult with their examiner or attorney for guidance. Good luck
Will a simple statement (without a list of transactions) work? Or do they need the original agreement and list of transactions? This is for an unpaid credit card debt that was charged off and sold to Midland Credit. (Assume you're trying to fight it without filing bankruptcy please.)

If you filed for bankruptcy after the debt was incurred and you received a discharge, all that they need is your case number.

The case against me is from a creditor.
answered on Aug 10, 2020
It means the creditor has not been able to properly serve you court documents. They're likely to try some other means to serve you. As soon as you're served you have 28 days to file your answer or they will seek a default judgment.
