Received summons from CACH, LLC. I have a few questions.
« on: July 05, 2012 02:17:15 AM »
Hello, I have received a summons on a complaint regarding common counts and breach of contract.  There are also two causes of action: Breach of Contract and Account Stated.  I reside in Orange County, California.  Please help me, I'm not sure what to respond with.

Also, I'm not sure if I can take them out of the court through arbitration because they do not state when my credit card was opened so I do not which yearly agreement I can look at.  However, they did say that within four years X has failed to pay X, and as of July 2011, X owes the sum of XXXXX.

In addition to this:

1) Is it still okay/safe to ask for DV even though I have been served? (It's still within 30 days within the first contact)

2) Are there any other things I should do or look at before or after I send in an answer?

3) How should I answer my summons and what should I deny/admit exactly?

4) If all goes down the drain, should I just file for bankruptcy instead?

Who's the original creditor?

What was attached to the complaint?

Have you answered ?

Go to arbitration section and read. Right below is section for card agreement,s pick one that has JAMS.

SOL for CA is 4 yrs, but first find out when the alleged account went into default.

Have you checked your credit reports ?  You're entitled to a free report once a year, order hard copies of all three, transunion, Equifax, Experian, if you haven't.

Original creditor is BoA.  I believe JDB/Plaintiff is CACH, LLC and is represented by a law firm. I'm not sure what you mean by what was attached to the complaint.  The only thing besides the complaint was an Alternative Dispute Resolution Stipulation packet.

I have not answered. 

Can I found out when the alleged account went into default by asking for a DV? 
I have not checked my credit reports and will check it as soon as I can.

Also, I have trouble finding a JAMS agreement or any arbitration clauses for BofA.  The only one I can find is ineligible from http://teh402.blogspot.com/2010/03/arbitration-agreements-bank-of-america.html

It is too late for DV , you have been served , need to file answer.

Was there an affidavit of CACH's employee, account statement any of those  attached?

Read your state rules of procedures , some states like mine if the complaint does not include written agreement/contract, statements or affidavit explaining why those were not attached it is ground for dismissal. See what are requirements in your state.

Read these links ,  last one is for BOA card agreements ;

If you check your credit report, you will likely find that B of A was the creditor and sold the account.

CACH is a JDB that buys B of A accounts.  I believe that B of A has Delaware as choice of law and the SOL for Deleware is 3 years.  I would check with a local attorney to see if your state will use the Delaware SOL.  If you have not made a payment or charge in over 4 years, the California SOL would give you safety.

In my response to the summons, under affirmative defenses, I would state that the plaintiff is time barred from bringing a lawsuit on this account and motion to dismiss with prejudice.

An arbitrator in JAMS may accept the Delaware SOL even if your state's courts wouldn't.

Except that BOA 2003 with JAMS has AZ law.

The DE contracts are NAF only and may get you a court appointed arbitrator.
