My firm has accepted defense of a collection case brought by First Resolution Investment Corporation (allegedly as successor in intererst to Unifund CCR Partners who was allegedly the assignee of Chase Manhattan Bank USA). First Resolution is bringing the lawsuit via the law firm (actually debt collectors) Winn and Sims. The case is in San Diego Superior Court and is Case No. IC881247.
If sued by a debt collector, you should immediately consult with a consumer attorney (these cases are often defensible). Do not delay, as failure to respond within 30 days usually results in a default judgment being entered against you, which is what most debt collectors are primarily seeking. Obtaining a quick judgment may allow them to garnish wages or bank accounts, or put liens on any real property you own. Consumers in California should feel free to email me (email@example.com) or call me (858-679-3396) to obtain a free consultation. Consumers outside California can use the National Association of Consumer Advocates to find an attorney in your state.
