Collection Agency After Bankruptcy

November 6th, 2008 by Questions

Mobilty Company suspended our service after receiving notification of Bankruptcy, demanded $ 500.00 deposit (their right) even though we were 20 year customers.
As we didn`t have the $ 500.00 they charged us $ 795.00 cancellation fee, saying we broke the contract. No written notice of service suspension. Say charge was put on after bankruptcy date, so we have to pay

I think you should direct this matter to your trustee – if they closed your account due to the bankruptcy then tried to charge you a cancelation fee that fee should be a debt provable in bankruptcy (ie it should be included and covered by the bankruptcy). What they are doing is improper in my opinion and I think the Bankruptcy Court would be very interested to hear about it…
