Store card issuer is threatening to sue me for not paying?

Postby alexy13 » Sat Apr 21, 2012 7:58 pm

I have a store issued credit card from Express stores and I haven't been able to make the payment for a few month now. They are currently threatening to sue me. Is it possible for them to sue me in the states of Massachusetts?

Maybe you could transfer your balance to another card?

Hmmmmm not sure about American laws but even if they don't sue you, they can most certainly damage your credit rating which would affect you even worse.

Above article is true, and very sad... ever heard of the cancer patient who couldn't pay her hospital bill and was arrested?
