Q. I just got an email saying there will be a lawsuit filed for today’s date the 14th for my SSN which was actually on It
A: Probably, but without more information, it would be almost impossible for any attorney to assist you. For example: 1. Is the email from a recognizable email address (e.g. larry@deweycheatemandhowe.com) or is it from a nonsensical string of letters and numbers (e.g. aswin.2.tsco.72538@du8s3sj194f9cj.w1fae-a742.fowrwjki.gq)? 2. Do you recognize the name of the company that is allegedly going to sue you? 3. Do they mention a specific debt (e.g. unpaid doctor bills) that you recognize? This list is by no means comprehensive - it is just meant to give you some ideas of how to look critically at the email. If you do receive "official" court papers in the mail - do not ignore them. That is how the other side can get a default against you. You should be able to find a lawyers through Justia, Avvo, or a local or state bar association that may offer a free or reduced cost initial consultation. Best of luck.
Q. Am I a Class Member even though I was not a plaintiff in Vargas, et al. v. Ford Motor Company?
A: You are a member of the class, and thus entitled to participate in the benefits of the settlement if you meet the class definition. You do not NEED to be a plaintiff in order to participate in most class actions in the United States. The definition in this case is: You are a Class Member if you are a person, entity, or organization who currently resides in the United States (including its territories), and you purchase(d), or lease(d) a 2011-2016 Ford Fiesta or 2012-2016 Ford Focus equipped with a PowerShift Transmission that was originally sold by Ford in the United States or its territories. The following are not included in the Settlement: (1) owners or lessees of Class Vehicles who have filed and served litigation against Ford alleging problems with the PowerShift Transmission in Class Vehicles that was pending as of the Notice Date and who do not dismiss their actions before final judgment and affirmatively elect to opt in to the Settlement; (2) Ford’s officers, directors, employees, affiliates and affiliates’ officers, directors and employees, their distributors and distributors’ officers, directors, and employees, and Ford Dealers and Ford Dealers’ officers and directors; (3) judicial officers and immediate family members assigned to the Actions or any judicial officers who may hear the appeal; (4) all parties to litigation against Ford alleging problems with the PowerShift Transmission in Class Vehicles in which final judgment has been entered; and (5) all entities and natural persons who have previously executed and delivered to Ford releases of their claims based on the PowerShift Transmission. See http://fordtransmissionsettlement.com/frequently-asked-questions.aspx#a8 You can find the full notice, which will answer many questions, here: http://fordtransmissionsettlement.com/media/1005836/v4_fvs_notice_070617_final.pdf If you have additional questions about the case, please contact the lead lawyers in the case: Capstone Law APC 1875 Century Park E., Suite 1000 Los Angeles, CA 90067 Phone: (855) 310-9583 Email: fordlawsuit@capstonelawyers.com You can also speak to a local attorney that specialized in Lemon Law cases to discuss your rights. Most will offer a free consultation. Be prepared with a written chronology of the issues you had with the car as well as copies of your service records if available. Good luck!
Q. How does the statute of limitations work on almost 20 yr credit card debt
A: Yes, you should find a qualified lawyer who handles FDCPA matters. Many offer free initial consultations. You can find lawyers here on Justia, or other directories such as Avvo. You can also contact the Houston Lawyer Referral Service, who can refer you to pre-screened lawyers who offer low cost intitial consultations - https://hlrs.org/ And don't sign ANYTHING from the "litigation company" unless and until you have consulted your own attorney. Good luck.
