Consumer Complaint: I received a letter datedXX/XX/XXXX from XXXX, XXXX, XXXX, XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX in behalf of Crown Asset ManagemenXXXX requesting payment on an alleged debt. On XX/XX/XXXX, I sent them a letter requesting that they validate the alleged debt. However, I never received any response from them.
I then started to receive advertisement mail from different law offices informing that Crown Asset Management has filed a lawsuit against me onXX/XX/XXXX. I then checked the court system, and saw that they had a court hearing set for XX/XX/XXXX. OnXX/XX/XXXX an attempt to serve the summons to a random address was made when the summons had my correct address.
On XX/XX/XXXX, I still went to court to avoid any confusions or a default judgement ; however, no one was there, and the Judge advised me to leave after seeing the attempt they made to serve me.
