What should I do if a debt collector sues me?

If a debt collector files a lawsuit against you to collect a debt, respond to the lawsuit, either personally or through your lawyer, by the date specified in the court papers to preserve your rights. If you dispute the debt or the amount, advise the debt collector of this. You should appear in court and advise the court that it is disputed and argue your case. Make sure you bring all corresponding paperwork to back up your claim.
