In 2003 I was living in memphis, TN. In July of 2003 I had brain surgery to try to control seizures, during my operation and recovery, more than $500 in cell phone calls were made. Sprint (who had several billing issues with my account) did credit me most of the charges and I paid the balance. After surgery I moved back to Colorado where family was. I then had a land line (as I was not allowed to drive and rarely left the apartment) so did not use cell much if at all.
Calls were still being made by my cell number from memphis. I reported this to Sprint who contacted their fraud department. Fraud department was going to research this and if there were any problems they would contact me. I never heard from anyone until 2006 when an attorney in Colorado had me served with court papers. I had no knowledge of Sprint even pursuing this and/or turning it over to a collection company. sprint had my phone number and address in Colorado
1st court date I did not go because I called the courts (and their was no docket nor case number on papers) and no record of the court case. Attorney's office called and asked why I did not go and I told them I did not owe the money and that there was no case number, no docket number. They were going to contact Sprint to find out about the charges.
never heard from them again until Feb 2007 when they again served me with papers. I did not go to court because there had been a snow storm on the day of court, 2/2/07 and am still not permitted to drive, taxis were not operating nor was RTD (bus system). A family member passed away so I moved to new york on 2/18/07. When buying my aunt's home (to pay off her debts) Calavry came up with a balance of$1,118. Mortgage company included this amount in the loan and sent a check to the attorney acting on Calvary's behalf. I noticed that there was money missing from my and my daughters bank accounts.
After contacting my bank found out that this attorney has garnished our accounts. My bank sent me information on this garnishment. I have never heard from Larry Bauer, attorney for Calavry. To top it off, even though the credit report states that $1118 was owed, the attorney's office told me that this money has been returned to settlement company and now the amount owed is over $1800.
I am still trying to confirm that this check was in fact returned and to find out what to do. Can you help me on this?
