Legal Answers
38 Questions Answered
Q. I was in a car accident, the physical therapy office sign a lien. Then sent me to collections. Do I have any recourse?
A: You owe them for treating you, UNLESS the contract says that payment is contingent on a successful recovery in a case against the party at fault for the accident.
Q. Bank of America is suing me for not paying business card debt of $7000. I feel this is unfair practice in a Pandemic
A: If you are very sensitive or prone to anger, than stop here and read no further because you are not going to like this. Frankly, I think your pain is largely self inflicted. If you can afford to pay 50% now, I have to believe you could have avoided a default and simply continued to pay the monthly minimum. And, if they really are suing you, I suspect they previously sent you a bunch of letters trying to work things out, probably begging you to do so along with generous terms - which you must have ignored. I guess you just talked to them to make your offer. If you spoke to them with even a small amount of the attitude that you showed in your question, it is no wonder they told you "no." You are the person who broke a promise, not them. Negotiating with a debt collector is not hard to do, as my colleague Tristan Brown points out. But you need to be respectful to get anywhere. As they say, "you catch more flies with honey."
Q. Can my sugar daddy get me jailed knowing that I don't have control of his money.
A: As the saying goes, if you sleep with dogs you're going to get fleas. I suggest you tell him to go right ahead and call the police. The police won't care, and if they behave true to form they will tell him this is "a civil matter" and they won't even take a report. If the deposit was made in good funds, he gave you a gift of the money is the way it sounds to me. If as you say the funds were not good money, he has nothing to complain about. Besides, he does not sound like the kind of person who would want law enforcement snooping into his affairs. I am pretty sure that this guy does not have a brother in the FBI, and if he has a brother "in the FBI" it's because the brother is probably sitting in a FBI holding cell.
