We received a letter from a financial services company that stated a lawsuit was filed against us. I checked on the LASuperiorcourt.org website, paid $4.75 to see if one existed. One was filed just 5 days ago. The lawsuit is called Collections Case (limited justisdiction). With a future hearing on 10/17/2012(collections-proof of service). We have not received a summons.
How do I proceed? And should I contact that financial services. They say they are not a collections agency, they service the public/not the creditors, and they specialize in out of court arrangements.
