Subject: Need help with a response of an allegegation in complaint
Thu Mar 31, 2011 11:48 am
In paragraph 20 of my summons complaint, it states, "As a result of the breach of the agreement by Defendant, Plaintiff has been damaged in the sum of $9,000 plus interest at the rate of 10% from March 3, 2010."
Now, the plaintiff is the CA, not the original creditor. I am filing this answer in the state of California and on their form it gives me two areas to either deny or claim statements as false.
I am puting this statement under the false statement section and stating as a reason that, "In response to paragraph #20, there is not, nor has there ever been any agreement, written, oral or implied with the Plaintiff and Defendant. Therefore, damages alleged by the Plaintiff through the direct action or inaction between Defendant and Plaintiff is completely inaccurate and fallacious."
Was wondering if that statement is good or too much?
I don't think it will be a good idea to send such a statement when the summon complaint doesn't state that you ever had an agreement with the plaintiff. I guess the complaint only states that there was a breach of agreement, which could have been between the defendant and someone else (may be the original creditor), and that as a result of this the plaintiff here has suffered a financial damage. _________________ Keep in touch

Ya, but the plaintiff is claiming I damaged them as a direct result of breaching the contract with the original creditor. The CA was never apart of the original deal and nobody twisted their arm to buy the debt in the first place. Only reason, why they did is the same reason why every other CA buys debt. Because they can buy the debt for pennies on the dollar and try to collect the full amount that was owed to the creditor, therefor making a huge profit.

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.
