How do I know if a complaint is "verified" in a credit card lawsuit?

Most complaints are not verified. You can tell if it is verified because it will typically say so in the caption or there will be a verification statement at the end of the complaint.
If that is not present, it is not verified.
Verified complaints are rare for credit card lawsuits. It is NOT a verified complaint unless there is a statement at the end of the complaint (or attached as a separate last page to the complaint) which says something like this:
"I have read the foregoing Complaint and know its contents. I am a party to this action. The matters stated in the foregoing document are true of my own knowledge except as to those matters which are stated on information and belief, and as to those matters I believe them to be true. I declare under penalty of perjury under the laws of the State of California that the foregoing is true and correct. Executed on April __, 2012, at San Diego, California."
If for some reason this is a verified complaint, you need to file a verified answer. See:
