Serving A Summons
(Sarasota fl )
So I have this bill that 7 years old and for the last two years I had this place not really sure who they are but they keep telling me they want to serve me with a summons.
Last year I told them please do cause I would like to get this to court and get it taken care of cause I didn't owe the money and I have all the paper to show it. Now I have not heard from them for a year and they are calling my work and my home once again telling whom ever answers the phone to give me a message that they have a summons to serve me. Do they really call you before serving you a summons ?

Process servers get paid for serving people. Most people don't want to be served and they try to avoid them. So it makes no sense that they would call you to tell you that they are serving you.
It sounds fishy all the way around. If you can find out who these guys are you can report them to the FTC.gov and your state attorney general. But it also sounds like it could be one of the debt collection scams that it happening all over the country. Watch out!
