It has been longer than I intended since the last issue of the newsletter – but this has been an extremely busy and productive time all the same. I have created some new products – the Motion to Dismiss Pack, Trial Binder, and Guide to Legal Research. I have continued to work on, and am almost finished with, certain products designed to help people in specific states use favorable pleading requirements or the rules regarding “bill of particulars” to help defeat the debt collectors, and I have almost completed a sample motion to dismiss an “account stated” claim.
In this Issue of Fightdebt! our featured video is the first of two videos that will discuss motions to dismiss. It is not primarily an advertisement for the new product, but rather it is designed to show people the difference between the types of motions to dismiss they could encounter. I am working on this because important rights can be waived if they aren’t addressed by a motion to dismiss before fiing an Answer. Historically my materials haven’t focused on this sort of attack.
The Question of the Month relates to verification – it addresses what happens if you make a request for verification and the debt collector, without having verified, starts a lawsuit against you.
In Life after Litigation we look at a scam – it’s our scam report for the month too – where companies that have lost the right to sue you make a sneak attack designed to revive that right. what happens after a debt lawsuit is over. What they’re doing is sending you a “credit-repairing” credit card – all you have to do is sign up…!
The Litigation Technique article is related to these credit repair cards. The credit cards are all about reviving the right to sue you – what are some other things that might also extend or revive this right?
The Scam Report, as I said above, addresses apparently new credit cards with very large balances, which are supposed to help you reinstate your credit. Can they help you? or are they just a scam?
