Judgment Against Me, But I Was Not Served
(Lancaster CA Los Angeles County)
How much time do I have to protect myself from a debt collector suing me. The debt collector filed a suit against me June 2008, they the servicer claimed they served me. I was never served. In fact when I went to the court house the servicer said in his affidavit that he served me personally at 8:02 pm February 12th 2008. I wasnt at home nor in town. The truth be told he claimed he served a 6ft 300 Asian with black hair. I am 6"3 240lbs Moorish American. They claimed to have served my home with an apartment address such as 2540 Game Ave Apt 22, when I live at 2540 Game Ave no Apt. So I am not sure whom they served.
They some how got a judgement against me. I found out because the collectors of the debt ( 4th party at this point) sent a letter to my home after it had went to some apt address in my neighborhood.
Do I have time to fight this case? If so how.
Thanks for your time.
