Consumer Complaint: I received this paperwork several days ago. I had no idea what this was for. I called the attorney listed on the paperwork. Their office advised me that a judgment had been ordered against me and they will get their money anyway they can. I spoke to an attorney and confirmed the judgement. I explained I was never served and had no idea what was this was all about. The attorney said he can take the case but will cost {$1200.00}. I do not know why I have to pay for something I have no knowledge of? I never received any paperwork or any phone calls from anybody for any debt. This should be against the law to be harassed at work for something I have no knowledge of.
