Public Record, Legal Item. I need help Removing this.
I have a Public Record, Legal Item. It was an old credit card debt that was sold to a company that took me to court. I was un-aware of the court hearing and so they won the judgment. it does not show under owing a debt. just shows filed and under Public records, Negative remarks. I've tried contacting the court house that reported this on my credit report and they gave me the information of the Company that that took me to court. American Acceptance Co. LLC. I have tried finding there information and it appears that company is out of business. So I contacted the law firm that handled the case for American Acceptance and they said that they are handling the case for them. It was filed back in 2011 it is now June 2017 and that company is no longer in business. So how is the law firm still working for them and when I asked them for the contact info for American Acceptance Co. they gave me the only contact number they have for them but I called that number and it is out of service. I'm at a loss as what to do now? Please help. It's the only thing on my credit and I would like to buy a house march next year
