    Stewart’s Answer

    If I understand your question, a false credit reporting appears on a credit report, you need to dispute this not only with pinnacle but also with the original creditor and any creditors in between. Notify the three major credit reporting companies that it is disputed and you have sought verification and validation. Afterwards, if no response is made, you have certain rights

  • Statue of limitation in pa for a credit card

    I received a phone call from a collection agency telling me they're going to take me to court for a credit card the last payment was 6 / 2010 I explain to them that the statute of limitations in Pennsylvania is 4 years so I plan to go to court ...

    Stewart’s Answer

    Pennsylvania will generally be 4 years from the date of last payment, not last purpose. If the credit card agreement cites Delaware law (which many do) it could be 3 years from the date of last payment method Pennsylvania a borrowing statute will apply the shorter limitations period. There is even one case in Delaware that runs the limitations period from the last purchase. Contact a consumer law attorney for a free consultation on fighting the collection. You can find one here on avvo or just message anybody who responds to your inquiry

    Stewart’s Answer

    Speak to the public defenders office about representation. For first time offenses you might very well be able to avoid jail time although you will have a record that could hurt employment. Best bet might be to see if you qualify for ard which might allow you to expunge the record.
