Being sued for a debt in PA that originated in IL Started by asweeney , Jun 06 2013 04:21 PM Please log in to reply 3 replies to this topic 1 posts Posted 06 June 2013 - 04:21 PM I have an outstanding credit card debt from 3.5 years ago for $1200. I am being sued for $1600 by a collections attorney. The debt originated in IL. I have not responded to the certified letter, I only know I am being sued because another attorney sent me a letter offering to represent me. I then looked it up on the PA Judiciary site. I have a few questions: 1. What will happen if I don't respond or sign for the certified letter? Can I prolong it to the 4 year statute and have it dismissed? 2. Can they garnish my wages? 3. I have no assets (home, car, real estate etc.) and I am not married.If I use a bank account in another person's name, will they be able to freeze that account? I am a single mother on a very tight budgetand I have tried to pay down my former debt a few at a time. This company just was not willing to work with me. I am working with the rest of my collectors to pay them off as I can afford it. 1,502 posts Posted 06 June 2013 - 05:13 PM I have an outstanding credit card debt from 3.5 years ago for $1200.

But they would have to find, prove you are connected to it and have made a fraudulent transfer, and get the court to order the levy of the money in the account. Probably isn't going to happen, but still a risk. I am a single mother on a very tight budgetand I have tried to pay down my former debt a few at a time.

However, I doubt any creditor would go to the trouble over a debt as small as what you mentioned.
