I hope I can find some help here...just got served a summons for and old debt. I am an Air Force Veteran and I don't remember this debt, can I request something in writing to prove that it is infact my signature? I left a message with the attorney whose name appears on the summons. I was the victim of identity theft, so I am not sure this is even mine.
Yes I would send them a debt verification letter make sure to send it certified.

Thanks for the information. I am going to tell my boss tomorrow what happened...so they are in the loop...will be curious as to what this attorney has to say.
I did some research on my recent background and found that it is on my credit report, but was written off as a bad debt, so now I want to find out how they can send me a summons on something that they wrote off and why am I just now being notified? Thought they had to send something in writing, not just sending a sheriff to your door...I am ready to fight!!
Your personal details (name, email address and phone number) will be delivered to the company advertised on the Creditmagic after ve agreed to go for the counseling session by filling out the no-obligation form. However, it is your discretion to accept or reject their services.
Not all the creditors/debt collectors agree to trim down the outstanding balances, interests, and fees payable by the consumer.
Consumers working with the debt relief companies can still be sued by the creditors/collection agencies.
Debt relief services may have a diminishing effect on the creditworthiness of the consumer. The total outstanding balance may increase as the additional fees get accrued.
The overall amount saved by the consumer through the debt relief services is considered as taxable income by the IRS.
