Here is how it all happened. Tell me if any of this is legal.
I had a very old medical bill that I didn't even know that i had. I got served court papers and I called the collection agency to see what it was all about. They told me I had to go to court for this 341.00 medical bill. I told them is there something that I could do where I didn't have to go to court? I worked out a payment plan with them and they told me while I was paying them my monthly payment I didn't need to go to court and they would not put a judgment against me.
I have been paying my monthly payment for quite some time because it's taking me forever when they keep on adding interest charges and fees to my balance so therefore it's not going down very fast.
In the meantime I looked up their company and saw they had a lot of complaints against their company and I was amazed on how they treated people. I have kept everything they have sent me. I'm very detailed and I always check my credit report and I saw they did put a judgment against me anyway even though they told me they would not and I have been paying them.
Is anything that I have told you so far legal on their part? They have been nothing but a pain to deal with. Now they are claiming they came up with another bill from the year of 2005.
