Recently, my boyfriend and I submitted applications to an apartment complex that we were very interested in moving into. However, two days later I received a call from the leasing manager who stated that my application had no problems but his was...
Is there any criminal activity and did you disclose it on the application? If the information is correct then there isn't really anything you can do. If the info is inaccurate, you need to dispute it just as you would make a dispute to a credit bureau to get it fixed. If it is not removed, you can sue the background checking company to get it removed and pay you damages and attorney fees.See question
Two checks from 1998 and 1999 that combined total was $170 but had served jail time for hot checks back then and haven't heard or known about them until today and was wondering how this works and how to take care of it.
Those checks are too old for criminal prosecution and anyone threatening that is trying to scam you.See question

This is a scam. You probably are not in danger of going to jail for this debt. Unfortunately, there is probably nothing you can about the calls and the threats. There are 2 kinds of internet collectors: 1) the ones you can find and 2) the ones you can't. Most of the scary collectors are in the second group. It's virtually impossible to get them to stop and you can't sue because you can't physically find them. Demand information about the debt. They will not give it. Do not provide any of your banking information. Finally, beg them to sue you immediately because, if they do, you can sue them for the collection violations.
My boyfriend has a car and his father cosigned for him 2 years ago. Since then my boyfriend has paid all his payments on time and has always had car insurance and everything. Last week his father came and took the car in the middle of the night. T...
You both have the right to possession of the vehicle because your name is on the title. You have the right to take possession by towing without his/her consent. Be aware that he/she can do the same to you. The Police will not get involved because this is a civil matter. Your problem will come when the title is issued after pay-off. If his/her name appears on the title, you won’t be able to sell the car without his/her permission. You can always make a deal to split some of the sale money to get him/her sign off. You may have to make this a life lesson: don't lend money to friends and NEVER co-sign on a purchase for anyone.See question

You may have a claim for violations of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and Fair Credit Reporting Act. Each violation of the FDCPA is worth up to $1,000 to you, any actual damages, and mental anguish, plus attorney fees. To protect your claim under the Fair Credit Reporting Act, you must dispute the debt with the credit bureaus preferably in writing. The bureaus must investigate and if the debt can't be substantiated, the entry must be removed. If it is not removed, you can sue the collector.See question
