Harris & Zide – Consumer Complaint – 8-7-2012

Consumer Statement:

I received a letter from a local law firm who bought an old debt of mine. The interesting part of this is that the old debtors actually tried to sue me for the money about 6 or 7 years ago if not more, and the case was dismissed. Therefore I don’t understand how they can say that this money is still owed. The card was Providian, in the amount of about 3k. These guys are suing me for 2664.00. Anyhow, I have the summons now, that was issued 7/12, and I want to rebut, however I’m not sure what to say or how to go about it and time is running out.

Consumer Action Taken:

I have spoken to the law firm, and assured them this was a previous suit, and the case was dismissed but they are asking for proof. I don’t know how to get proof of the case because my ex attorney is a guy called Eric Fagan, who supposedly ended up going to prison. I don’t have a way to access my files with his business.

    I think this is two different accounts. The Harris & Zide letter says they have a judgment.They are required to provide a copy to you upon your request. Also, although Cap One did get some Providian accounts many years back, it seems from looking at both docs that the lawsuit is by Cap One and the Zide letter is in reference to Palisades/Providian. You said you called the law firm, but which one? Both matters warrant further investigation and I would be happy to assist. Our office regularly opposes both firms and know them well. Call me at 909-581-7354 if you would like to discuss in greater detail.

      Calling Fitz would be a good idea.

    What is interesting is that the law firm that is claiming to collect on the judgment is different than the name of the firm that filed the suit, Bleier & Cox.

    Find the status of the previous case should be as easy as calling the court the case was filed in and getting copies of the case records.
