What type of motion must be filed by the defendant in response? The defendant defaulted on the repayment obligation upon discovering that the services were not properly rendered. There are 2 counts: MONEY LENT/MONEY PAID & UNJUST ENRICHMENT. A credit card was used by the defendant.
The defendant needs to file an answer to the complaint. A defendant may also file a motion to dismiss based on what was pleaded in the complaint. If the motion is overruled however, the defendant must answer the complaint.
There is a difference between defaulting on the repayment obligation, and a default judgment. The defendant still has a right to dispute the debt, though it may seem clear cut to some. But he must assert his defenses, and dispute any facts in the complaint, in an answer.

In response to a Complaint, a defendant must file a "Answer" (not a motion, with certain exceptions). It sounds like you would have defenses and counterclaims to raise along with the Answer. You should consult with an attorney to do this properly.
