CREDITOR THREATENING TO SUE AFTER BANKRUPTCY
October 19th, 2007 by Questions
Hi, during the summer I received a letter from a lawyer representing a creditor involved in my bankruptcy. It claims that I filed under false pretenses based on transactions in the last month before filing. Therefore I owed that amount plus interest (I filed three years ago!) as it is not covered under article 178 of the bankruptcy act. Since then I have received several calls, the last basically saying that they haven`t gotten a response from myself or my trustee and will proceed to go to court. I contacted my trustee who said that it is more than likely a scare tactic and to ignore them, only to make sure I don`t sign any settlement and send them any court oriented paperwork. This is very frustrating for me as I received a complete discharge and honestly feel I did nothing wrong, I just want to move on in my life, but it is difficult to when I don`t know where I stand in this matter. It is impossible to put my bankruptcy behind me when it seems at any time a past creditor can come out of my past to try to haunt me unjustly. I went through a tremendous amount both financially and emotionally in my decision to declare bankruptcy, is this ever going to end? thanks.
