Re: [tips_and_tricks] Re: TIME is RUNNING OUT Being sued for an account I have never had...HELP Please
- If they are a third party debt collector, you can probably sue them under the FDCPA.15 USC 1692, Ecombs is a consumer law firm in Chicago, I would e-mail them and seeif they are inetersted, there are alot of FDCPA attorneys in Chicago as well. Their case sounds like it is frivolous in fact and law, and if it was filed in federal court , they federal judiciary make take sanctions against a professional attorney for filing such a case.If what you say is true you should be abe to counter sue them . Another thing Illinois hasvery tough consumer proection laws as well. Get in touch with the Attonrey General's office.RegardsJack

Challenge proper party in interest and demand proof on contract
between the parties. Keep the burden of proof on plaintiff. There
is case law on "Account Stated," as one theory some plaintiff's file, but there has to be an existing agreement.
With no agreement, no contract, how can plaintiff be a holder in
due course with an interest in the outcome? Challenge the contractual
obligation, which plaintff does not have, based on what you say.
