Of course you are!  They are likely suing because you haven't been paying as agreed.  And I advise taking the time to read the articles here to learn how credit really works since providing that education is the purpose of Credit Karma.

Yup, unfortunately (you know you can go to court and fight it, making them prove it's yours, right?)  Once a judgement is rendered against you, you have to pay whatever amount is listed in the judgement. If you don't do it voluntarily, they can take up to 25% of your paycheck before you even see it in order to pay off the judgement.
