JK Harris Complaint - JK Harris fighting back against the lawsuit?
I sent this to Plaza Associates PO Box 18008 in Hauppauge NY after receiving fraudulent collection notices. Looking at the back of the letter, I find it interesting that the follow disclaimer states, "This letter is for information purposes only. The letter is not a demand for payment or an attempt to collect, assess, or recover a claim against you that arose before the commencement of your case.
To whom it may concern,
Regarding your separate letters to me and to my husband John dated May 27, 2007, regarding case XXXXXXXX, which states that we EACH, apparently, owe $2,869.62
SOMEONE is attempting to perpetuate a fraud. That JK Harris might try it is not a surprise, but I certainly hope your company is not.
First of all, that my husband and I received SEPARATE letters would imply that we owe $5,700+ dollars.
On our JK Harris contract dated 11/22/02, the contract total is $2995.00 We made an initial payment os $200. and direct installments of $300 each month from December 2002 through August of 2003.
At the risk of sounding infuriated, I am Emailing you to inform you that not only do I not owe a dime to JK Harris, but that they have NEVER voluntarily contacted us since the DAY WE SIGNED OUR CONTRACT in 2002. I am endlessly amused at these letters since I filed a letter of intent with my lawyer to sue JK Harris for fraud.
We spent hours on the phone with JK Harris in 2002 and 2003, being transfered from one incompetent person to the next. Only after contacting JK Harris when the IRS was attaching our wages IN 2005 did we give up in absolute disgust. The IRS notified us that, in fact, JK Harris was a fraudulent business. We then worked with the IRS....
And found that in a 15 minute phone call with the IRS we were easily able to come to a satisfactory agreement.
After almost 3 years, JK Harris did not do one thing to assist us.
My intent to enter into this lawsuit against JK Harris was filed on April 20, 2007. I find the timing of this sudden accusation for a "past due balance" suspicious. If you want to pursue this nonsense past this point, contact my lawyer.
My husband John died on March 30, 2007.
