How Do Credit Card Lawsuits Occur?
Usually, when someone is sued for credit card debt, it is because the creditor has sold an old or bad debt to a third party for pennies on the dollar, and then this new owner of the debt will try and collect the full or a portion of the original amount. Because a creditor cannot garnish wages in Texas, selling debts to a third party for collection purposes is a very popular option for credit card companies.
It is important to know that sometimes these debts are very old and a credit card company may not have contacted you about this outstanding balance until you are notified by the third party. More importantly, sometimes creditors do not accurately keep track of what balances are paid off or they sell off a debt that has already been settled.
