Turned into Collections 9 days after Making a Payment
(Coos Bay Oregon)
When I was 16 I opened a tire account with a local tire store and signed a contract. 10 years later after always making my monthly payment and paying my bill I was turned into collections 9 days after making a payment. I obtained my payment record from the collection agency and the tire company shows that I haven't made a payment for a year and a half. the collection agency told me on the phone that If I can prove that I was a minor when the contract was signed that I wouldn't have to pay the collection fee or the interest. i did so and then their story changed. now they are taking me to small claims. Will I be obligated to pay these outrageous fee's and interest on a contract that was clearly signed by a minor? And turned over to collections without my account even being past due?
