Debt collectors are brutal... Personally I like to avoid em by playing some free games - mostly MMORPGs

@ jesus your bank card is a credit card isnt it?
Also loans from credit unions may be a better route, I dont have arbitration disclosures, but check it out throughly first.
Hope the best for you!

Anyone facing foreclosure should demand that the servicer attempting to foreclose show proof that they own the mortgage. Many can't do that due the massive securitization of mortgages that were allowed to take place. If they can't prove they own your mortgage -- no foreclosure can go forward

Kristy: beats me, but posting here is not the way to get prompt advice.

Anyone know of credit card comparison sites that indicate whether or not the issuer requires an arbitration agreement? Or of major credit cards available w/o an arbitration agreement? I'm thinking of canceling all my cards with arbitration agreements and switching to one without.

Here is court decision in favour of the consumer (arbitration award denied)

DISPOSITION: [**1] Amended petition of Bank One Delaware N.A., to confirm arbitration award and to enter judgment denied.

HEADNOTES: Arbitration -- Credit card agreement -- Petition to confirm award -- Jurisdiction

SYLLABUS: The court refused to confirm an arbitration award against a credit card holder who never participated in the arbitration proceedings because, in the absence of a court order compelling the holder to proceed to arbitration, the arbitrator lacked jurisdiction over the holder. Petition to confirm arbitration award and to enter judgment thereon denied.

Wow alot of information there. Its really the same for judgements as well. The Debt Collector is banking on you not showing up. Most people bury their heads in the sand and try to forget about their responsiblities. Thats no news flash its been going on for thousands of years.

I have a question - my significant other was the victim of identity theft 3 years ago (left wallet in a cab!). We have all of the police reports and proof, but the lawyers of some check cashing company put a freeze on his account, claiming that he owes them $1800. The lawyer said that we could fax him the police report and then they will hire a private investigator. Until then, his account will be frozen! We can't access funds, pay bills, or anything! He did not receive any notification of a court hearing, so we're not sure what to do next. Do we have any options besides waiting for this jerk-of-a-lawyer to take his time with a private investigator?
Thanks for you help and advise!
